3 things

1. My girl saw the dentist for the first time. Verdict? She’s a cavity-free 7 year old who loves the dentist. Her only complaint was that visits to the dentist are messy.
2. All 3 of my children ate their dinner tonight. All of it. And 2 of them asked for seconds. (Recipe below, but no picture – the kids ate it faster than I could photograph)
3. I got a new client today, which means we have a little more wiggle room at Christmas (a.k.a., Super-fun-trip-to-grandparents-and-Legoland)

Recipe for Mudlark’s Chicken & Yellow Rice  (Mudlark’s mom’s chicken and yellow rice is far better, but I couldn’t be bothered today to search for the recipe – but this was a big hit with the kids)
1 TBS butter
1 medium onion
1 medium carrot
1-2 cooked chicken breast halves
1 small pkg of yellow rice with saffron seasoning
1 can of chicken broth
3/4 c. raisins

Chop the onion and carrot, and saute in butter till onion starts to brown and carrots are soft. Add rice and broth, reduce heat and cover, and cook about 20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Remove from heat and stir in raisins. Cover and let sit 5 minutes. Voila! (And give kids extra raisins…)
