Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Tacos a la FISH

You really should try these Fish Tacos!! Bought this Mahi Mahi frozen seasoned fish from Costco. It comes with chipotle sauce and a recipe for the cabbage slaw on the back. Of course, I altered the recipe a bit though. It calls for honey, lime juice and chopped cilantro, but I added a bit of mayo, chili powder and cumin to make it creamier and tastier! Guacamole, chips and rice make a complete Mexican meal. An easy and beautiful dinner! My husband (who grew up in So. Cal.) loves 'em!! He prefers corn tortillas, but I bought flour as well. Yummy!!
Hope you have a Happy Tuesday!! What do you have to share?!

Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Rule Reminder

Welcome to Toot Your Horn Tuesday!! I realize that I've been lax this year with my Tuesday Party, but I still have lots of participants, so let's go over the rules again...

You can "Toot" about anything you'd like! Whether you've knitted curtains, painted a mural, cooked for the Queen, or just made it through the day without your house falling down (which is usually my biggest accomplishment!)

Once you're ready to use Mr. Linky, you must also use one of the codes provided on my left sidebar to post my button into your post or somewhere on your page.
If you're not fond of buttons, then just place a simple link(www.sillylittlesparrow.com)so that others can find out where to play!

Please follow the rules, as it allows the party to grow!! If I visit your post and can't find the link back to the party, then you'll be removed.

Now, if you don't have a blog/website, but you'd still like to play, just go to the comment area and Toot Away!!

Today my Toot is for this fun, free activity that kept Glynis and her friend busy for quite a while!! After coloring with markers and letting the girls practice using tape on the paper towel rolls, we cut them and taped them to the wall to make a cool marble run!

We actually opted for big glass beads (that wouldn't roll away) instead of marbles. We also used tin foil balls. What fun they had!!

Here it is again on a bigger scale for my preschool class. They had such fun!

Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Mother's Day blessings

Oh how I love my children! I feel as if I should be celebrating them on Mother's Day rather then the other way around. Well...if it weren't for them, we wouldn't be celebrating! I'm so proud of my boys for their character, their humor, their intelligence, their love for Christ and their compassion!! And my daughter is the light of my days. She keeps me young, she keeps me on my toes!!

One of the best things about blogging is being able to go back in time and relive the memories. Click on the links below to see how much my kids have grown these past two years!

Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Strawberry Baby

Guess what we did today! Yes, strawberries are in season! Glynis and I lathered on the sunscreen and spent an hour squatting in a field. Actually, she was over the picking within the first 10 minutes after she discovered a lady bug and and all the lady bug friends. But I managed to fill two sand buckets with 5 lbs of beautiful juicy ones!

And what to do with all those strawberries?!! I'm not a "freeze 'em" kind of girl! We ate bunches, then dipped some in chocolate, and made a couple of amazingly easy and amazingly tasty desserts. I feel like Martha Stewart!

This dessert consists of an angel food cake (torn into chunks) from the grocery store, topped with a layer of THE BERRIES, vanilla pudding and cool whip. Delish!

And lastly, this easy cool whip/jello pie.
I think we'll be strawberried out in a day or two!

What are you up to?!! Make sure you give a toot and link up.
