I want a Wii

So many of my friends have gotten a Wii recently. They tell me about their wii fits and all the fun they have with them, how much of a work out they get with their boxing and what not. We haven't been able to justify the cost but I wouldn't turn one away if I won one thats for sure! Well CPF is celebrating 2 years of blogging with a giveaway. I'm totally crossing my fingers that I win, you should try too. :)

The Plague has Passed

So last week I was down and out. I felt like a truck ran me over most days so wasn't too into the blog. Then this weekend I started feeling a tiny bit better but then the husband got hit by the sick truck. There was a good amount of hot tea and ramen soup to be had over at Casa de Dirkey. Today I woke up to feel a little bit better, there are so many good things going this week. First I get to see my sister and her family who I only see maybe once a year (any family reading this is a surprise so shhhh). Last time we saw them was for about 30 minutes at the Minnesota airport on our stopover to Hawaii so I'm pretty excited about that. I also got my substitute teacher certificate so I'll be able to pick up some more work each week. I also have plans to make some mozzarella cheese the fresh milk I get from an Amish Farm.
What you got going for this week?

Easier than Pizza

Sorry I haven't been around lately I've been focusing on other things. I thought I'd share an easy peasy recipe that I got from a local friend.

Tuscan Soup
1 can of tomatoes (large can)
2 cans of beans (I like Cannelli)
put it in food processor then heat up on stove. I doctor it up with basil, dried onions, etc and serve it with some parmesan cheese and it is GOOOD!

Cheaper and Quicker than Pizza
