There aren't any WTH?'s in the title.
She didn't ask "Are you freakin' kiddin' me??!?!?
This must be an honest to goodness
gonna walk away with knowledge-
right up there with professional development-
I never made it to school today.
I found out that there are two in services that I wanted/needed
next Tues and Wed and I HAVE to stay all day Mon to get
my stipend- and we are required back on Thursday-
and there is a whole lotta difference between
I am at school because I have to be and I am at school
cause I wanna be-
you know what I am talking about, right?
Well this week was optional-
and I opted out!!!
So while I was grocery shopping today, I thought to myself
"Self, if you don't go to school today, you are not going to have pics to share!"
And that would make me a fibber!
I am A LOT of different things
a fibber is not one of them-
so instead I took some shots while cooking dinner.
And I thought-
some people probably already make this or some variation of it-
but I'll share it and all the mommy teachers in teacher blogland
"Oh, Squirrels! Thank you for your recipe idea-
you made my day easier today!"
Ok- you probably wouldn't say that-
but it's true-
we are all getting so close to being super-er -er
so here's an easy dinner-
It is one of the Littles Favorites and it is sooooo easy!!
Yes, it is Stove Top.
I make a phenom cornnread stuffing for realsies-
but remember we are in a (semi) hurry.
Pour stuffing in bowl. Add One and Half cups of Water. Microwave One minute.
This is Smoked Turkey from the Deli.
Spread stuffing on Turkey.
Roll it up (hence the name- Turkey Rolls)
Add them to the casserole dish- I dump the extra stuffing that didn't fit into the turkey around the sides.
(This could be the only recipe with the word "dump" in it).
Shhhh.... Quiet now-
don't EVER tell my grandma that I bought premade gravy!! Well I am sure there are other things that would send her over the edge- but she would definitely frown upon gravy from a jar !!
(Look at Truman "I want gravy! I want gravy!")
Poor it on top. Oven like 15 mins on 425.
I totally cheated on the green bean casserole, too.
I mixed all the ingredients, mic'ed it for 3 mins, stirred it, poured on more french fried onions and slid it in the oven for the last five minutes that the turkey rolls were in-
Now those are for realsies mashed pots-
I can't skirt any corners on those-
I do have standards people!!!
Now see- you have an easy dinner to have next week-
The potatoes take the longest.
(We had cranberry sauce too- but I was embarassed at how
badly I had mauled it, trying to get it out of the can- so I decided
not to photograph it!!)
Someone should start a "linky" of easy recipes for the busy teacher.
And when I say easy,
I need to be able to pronounce all of the ingredients and there shouldn't be more than
about 5 or six of them!
Maybe I'll do it-
On to other things- kind of related to teaching
I did hit the DOLLAR SPOT today
YOU ARE EVIL- MOVE THAT DOLLAR SPOT!!!
YOU ARE MILKIN' ALL THE TEACHERS DRY!
(Giggle, Giggle, Quack)
I got my wallet
I would have never found if it hadn't been for Holly and her B.
(They MUST be Secret Squirrel Shoppers).
I did get three pocket charts,
two bingo games
and 7 books! They are kind of like the Step into Reading Books-
a couple of them are a little over where we are-
but darn it- those books were under a dollar!!
Those words cannot remain unread-
Heck even if I read them once- I have gotten my money's worth!!!
Okay- well today was day two of
my walking routine-
a little over 4 miles-
I am pretty proud-
good thing my other hobbies allow me to sit-
because after I "Face Time" the MR and ask him to move me from this chair in the office
to Comfy chair up front, I won't be able to do anything that
requires standing or walking!
Have a Fantastical Friday!
