A couple of nights ago I experimented with making Tikka Masala Curry Chicken and let me tell you it was amazing! Sure the sauce came out of a jar and wasn’t homemade but hey I dont’ have a lot of time in the day to make homemade Tikka Masala Sauce even though Jamie Oliver’s version looked outrageously good.

Started by adding my defrosted chicken breasts to a saucepan of olive oil over medium heat for about 15 min (flipping midway through)

Then I chopped up some green pepper, onion, and garlic and added it to the chicken and let them get soft and smelling great. Added the Tikka Masala Curry Sauce and let simmer for about 15 min (while I got the Little One ready and situated with milk sippy cup in hand)


Would have been great with some brown rice and naan! but I didn’t have any on hand.

Since I already had the cutting board and our kitchen composter out I decided to chop up some more veggies for the days ahead. I love to do this so I don’t have to pull out all that stuff every night so I can just get it all over with in one week. I also had a little helper who thought all the bowls, pots and containers needed some organizing

Diced some celery and carrots and put into two separate containers. One  small batch to add into tuna for lunches and the other for a veggie stir fry I am planning for tonight. (p.s do you see how much counter space I’m working with in this house….yeah)

One of our favorite things to do is be outside helping daddy rake leaves while mommy runs around taking pictures of them doing all the work

Isn’t she such a help!

The Missing Halo

My parents came down to spend Halloween with us. Little Miette was an Angel with a wardobe malfunction. But first I have to share the cutest outfit our little one wore to church yesterday mornin. The rooster shirt/dress and baby Gap Skinny Jeans we got from the most adorable shop in carytown called Clover. You can check out a post by John over on YoungHouseLove and see pics of it!

Then Chaos ensued upon us.

The Chilly Hours

Miette and I started the day out right by splitting a bowl of s’more oatmeal!

S’more Oatmeal

Included the oatmeal cooked as we liked it and added half a cinnamon graham cracker and small spoonful of marshmallow fluff and a small spoonful of nutella.

I also had half of some yogurt I picked up at Target yesterday.

Then we headed outside on the porch to play on freshly fallen leaves

Today we have cleaning on our mind because my family is coming to Richmond to spend Halloween with us so much to do!
