Weekly Meal Plan

Here is what was on the menu this past week at our house:

One Pot Cheesy Turkey Taco Chili Mac
Say that three times fast. This was a tasty, a fairly healthy dinner. We added tortilla chips (maybe overkill with the macaroni, but still good). This worked great as leftovers for lunches.

Gnocchi with Pomodoro Sauce and roasted green beans.
This meal had so many amazing flavors. It was my favorite for the week. Jack really liked it and didn't even seem to notice that it had onions in it.

Alice Springs Chicken French Bread Pizza
It's been ages since we have ate at an Outback Steakhouse. This recipe isn't Outback, but it sure is tasty. If you wanted to skip on the bread part, I think this meal would be delicious using the marinade and then grilling the chicken. Oh so good! Jack and Daniel were not partial to the mushrooms, but I loved them!

One Pot Chicken with Roast Vegetables
This was such an easy dish to throw together and the taste was great. Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme... all make for a great flavor. Jack and I liked the Brussels sprouts, Daniel did not. The butternut squash added a nice sweet and savory flavor to the dish.

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies
This are my new go-to recipe for cookies. They are soft and melt-in-your mouth delicious. I could eat these every day.

Baby Update: 32 Weeks, What's It Like to Have Polyhydramnios

I have had some questions about how I am feeling so I thought I would share what it has been like for me to experience Polyhydramnios with this pregnancy. If you have missed my previous posts, I have too much amniotic fluid in my uterus which makes my belly really big and it also causes early contractions (and possibly labor) because my body thinks it is further along than it is. For me it meant a hospital stay at almost-30 weeks to stop contractions.

Yesterday I had my follow up with the high-risk OB. Their ultrasound measurements showed the fluid is currently 21cm (which is below the risk). The measurements are a bit of an art project with different people getting different numbers (last week I was still measuring 25cm). The doctor I saw said they will continue to measure and assess me on a weekly basis for now. According to him, once I make it to 34 weeks, they would not try to prevent birth if I went into labor. He also mentioned wanting to induce me at 38 weeks. We shall see... my…

Weekend Project: Sign Art

UPDATE 01/07/16
This project is by far my most viewed post thanks to Pinterest and also this blog post from Make Magazine in 2014. If you are interested in purchasing a PDF of the words from me, you may do so for $20. Contact me at cheree dot moore at gmail dot com to make the purchase. If you make your own sign, I would love to hear about and see your results!

For some time, I have been intrigued by the idea of transferring printed art to wood. Specifically the transfer of words (or typography). Sign art is all over the internet – be it blogs I follow or Pinterest – and I have had an itch to try my hand at it. 

Daniel and I had some scrap wood from pallets from our move to Alabama that was in good shape and I thought that this wood gave me the perfect opportunity to create a (cheap) sign for our living room.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to go on the sign and then it took even longer to research how I would do the transfer. Actually doing the project took even longer sin…

It's the Final Countdown

Three long years ago, we learned that Daniel was going to be relocated from working in Hollywood, Alabama to two hours north in Spring City, Tennessee. We knew it was coming, but it still turned our world upside down. We spent eight months living out of suitcases, in and out of hotels and vacation homes during the week, until finally settling into our current home on Signal Mountain.
We both felt strongly that we made the right choice in regard to the location of our new home, but we knew it would be a difficult journey – Daniel's new position promised long hours, with a 70-minute commute each way. We were told the job would last about a year, so we hoped and prayed for the best.
To say it's been a hard experience would be an understatement. Jack went through a phase where he didn't believe that Daniel lived at our house. Which was kind of true. For months on end, Daniel worked 6-7 days a week, and sometimes weeks at a time without a day off. The hours were lo…
