Fun in the house

Happy Monday everyone!  Is it the last week of June?  Already?!?!

I have some marvelous happenings to share, so let’s get right into the Marvelous In My Mondays with Katie!
I think all the fun I had in Cali finally caught up to me this weekend.  On Saturday, I didn’t want to go out and smell the roses.  I didn’t want to shower, let alone wash my face.   I didn’t want to get out of my I didn’t.  And boy, I tell ya, it was MARVELOUS!  I feel rested and extremely pumped for the week!  I’m feeling quite generous..High fives everyone!

I had so much fun just lounging around the house with Tim and Kona.  Who knew staying in could be so fun?!

  • We watched the movie, What If… while munching on some popcorn.
I purchased this when I was at Lifeway the other day for $5!  The cast sure was a hodge-podge of people – Hercules, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the voice of the piggy bank from Toy Story, and Bailey from Suite Life on Deck (Yes, I watch the Disney channel).   The story line was predictable, but nonetheless it was a heart-warming movie.  Tim and I enjoyed it  =).
  • Many marvelous eats came out of the kitchen.  Just to highlight a few:
Dumpling Soup
Tim and I made a huge batch of dumplings two weekends ago, and I froze the leftovers.  Good thing I did!  The soup was delish!

Salmon Noodle Casserole
 Nutty Date Balls

These are perfect bite-sized snacks!  I just bought some medjool dates from Costco, so I shall attempt to create some of my favorite Larabar flavors throughout the week!  This one is my version of Cashew Cookie.

Be on the lookout for all the recipes!!

  • Although I had to spend several hours over the weekend to study for my test today, it was all worth it because this girl is going to rock it!  What a marvelous feeling!  Piece of cake!! Let’s do this!

Hope you guys have a Marvelous Monday!!  Go and conquer the day!!

    Dumplings are my FAVORITE asian dish (I don’t even know if they are truly asian, but I adore them) so that soup sounds epic!

    • Min says:

      They sure are Asian! =)
      I’ll have the recipe up soon so you can make them yourself! They are really easy to make, but I do suggest that you gather some of your people =). More hands = the quicker you can enjoy them.

    Yup, so you get the picture? I think I did pretty good overall =).
