Yogurt Pancakes: Thursday's Meal!

I made 'Yogurt Pancakes' last night. The husband adored them! :) YAY!
So, here's what you need:
1 cup yogurt (I used 'Great Value' Strawberry)
7 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
First, take your yogurt, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt and mix it all together in a bowl. Make sure it looks nice and smooth and that everything is stirred in before progressing.

Next, whisk your eggs in a separate bowl. Once they are whisked, add in your vanilla extract. Once that is all mixed together, dump it into the bowl with your other ingredients.
Stir that together nice and easy until you get a nice, smooth mixture.
I spooned in a good amount for E's pancakes. (The original directions say 1/4 cup, but Ethan likes large pancakes, so I made his a little bigger!) You will see your pancakes start to bubble up like this after 2 to 3 minutes:

Make sure that you keep your stove setting o…

Weekly Meals, 2/6-2/10

I am a terrible wife and mother, haha! I neglected my duty to make dinner last night... well, not so much a duty.. okay, half duty.. half thing I absolutely love to do! :) But we had such a busy day yesterday! First, I found out I have to get my wisdom teeth cut out on February 13th. Yesssss, Happy Valentine's Day husband! I'll be a hot mess, I am sure. Hope he enjoys that! ;) After that, we had to run and sell my husband's truck, stop and pick up formula (or our heads would roll, most certainly!), stop at the Chiropractor for E's physical therapy, hit the gym so E could register for a competition there, and run to my parent's house to print off our lovely 1098s (thank you college!) Woo! Did you catch all of that? By the time we got home, it was 8pm and we all still needed baths and of course, AMERICAN IDOL was on! (Any fans??) So, as you can see.. there wasn't a lot of time for a home-made dinner. 
Hopefully next week won't be as busy!
I think tonight I …

Chicken Quesadillas: Tuesday's Meal!

Sorry, I have been behind on the whole 'Weekly Meals' thing! Monday we ended up going out to dinner with some friends of ours that are moving away. Breaks my heart when we go enjoy a meal with individuals simply because they are moving to another state :( We have some good friends starting new chapters in their lives that we are truly going to miss!
BUT last night, I made 'CHICKEN QUESADILLAS WITH MEXICAN RICE.'
I know, that's not something that's like "Oh my gosh, how in the world did you make that?" haha! But it turned out good, so I thought I would share... because it's quick and we all know how wonderful that is! 
Here's what you need to make your Chicken Quesadillas:

Tortillas
Chicken
Taco Seasoning
Shredded Cheese
Any other yummies you want to add (we had sour cream and ranch dressing)

I made 3 quesadillas since it's just the husband and me that would be eating it. I took 3 tortillas and wet one side of it. (I basically just ran my …
