call for help!

Ok - some of you are great foodies!  I need help!  I am going to try cooking more often, from scratch!

What I'm looking for are recipes that are meat-based (like I'm doing a roast chicken this week I think) and without veggies or with veggies large enough to pick them out...

Another good one is tomato-sauce based chicken and rice, to give you an idea.

Meat and potatoes, meat and rice, meat and noodles are sort of where I'm going...

Beef, chicken, fish are the meats!  Pork also...meatballs, shredded meats.

Let's see what you've got.  Hubby and I are sort of picky so nothing crazy spicy.  Nothing Asian flavored.  LOVE homestyle or italian or mexican.

Anyone?  AND EASY, remember I am a beginner cook w/three kids and no time!

2 + 2 = no sleep

2 sick babies = no sleep as we take the man-on-man approach ALL NIGHT last night.  I do think we got a couple of winks between 2 and 4 a.m.  Yikes.  Both babies have colds AND BabyJ figured out how to get out of her swaddle on the same night!  GREAT!

all sick...

hubby had a cold, which turned into a terrible sinus infection, then pink eye.

I now have the cold.

BabyT has the cold AND pink eye.

It is much fun at our house, let me tell you!

peepee in the potty!

My 20 month old just told me he had to pee, and then went pee pee in the potty!!!!!!!

Does this make up for pouring an entire gallon of Downy on the floor in the laundry room (Which then seeped down the air vent so we'll be "april fresh" in that room for a LONG TIME)?  Almost!

don't get too secure!

Having my third child, hubby and I feel like old pros.  We know how to handle babies and toddlers and feel like we're doing well w/the older son.  We've been working on writing and reading for a while and feel that he's one of the more advanced in his class.  We felt like we had this kid thing down and were just cruising.

Then he went to Kindergarten.

And we stopped cruising.  Now, I DON'T get to pick his school, or his days, or his schedule.  I don't like it ONE BIT.  Then we hear conflicting stories from him about how his days go and kids that do and don't play with him, do and don't sit on the bus, etc. and we are rattled to the core.  Just like we are first time parents w/a sick child all over again, we're nervous and discussing scenarios and what-ifs and should we call the school, etc.  I guess it never ends huh, the new stuff?

no room at the inn...

my employer has NO PART TIME positions available.  NONE.  This is not good news.
