Favorite things

This is just a post about my favorite things as a stay at home wife.

I have all the time in the world to cook delicious things. I am convinced that anyone can make a good meal. They just need the right recipe and they are golden. Whenever people talk to Matt and I about me being at home all day he always makes this comment "I will tell you one thing, the quality of meals has increased substantially." So needless to say I think Matt is quite fond of my plans to be a stay at home mom. Some of the winner dinners these last few weeks have been

Creamy Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Pasta  With this recipe I roasted the peppers myself instead of buying the jarred stuff. Tasted AMAZING, probably better then the jarred stuff. Also add some red pepper flakes for a little kick. You won't regret it.

Crock pot BBQ Chicken My Husband licked the plate clean, almost. He grabbed a slice of bread and used that to soak up the left over bbq sauce on his plate. 

Today I made Cinnamon Raisin bread because 1. It's so expensive to buy 2. Homemade is always better 3. You get 3 loaves instead of one for probably the same price and 4. Matt loves the stuff. 


Next I have taken up the art of crocheting. A girl in my ward helped me get started. So I am on a slow road to finishing a baby blanket for little baby. But that is fine, cause I have got the time!

Lastly this isn't quite a home making skill but it's something I have time for. For all you pregnant woman here are 2 exercise videos you can do. Don't be intimidated by the length, they aren't to terribly difficult and you can always break them into half hour work outs. If you don't have an exercise ball you should still do all you can without the ball, ESPECIALLY if you have any pelvic. lower back pain. One day and night I had really bad back pain. Did the one designed by the physiotherapist for the first time the next morning. My back, hips, and pelvic pain disappeared. It was like a miracle.
Prenatal Pilates 10 minute solutions
Pregnancy Pilates designed by physiotherapist.

Anyway, there is my list of favorite stay home wife things.
