Just Like Jerry's French Dressing
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp salt
1 small grated onion (optional)
Combine vinegar, sugar, salt and paprika. Mix well. Add oil whisking until well combined. Add onion. Refrigerate. This dressing is best made ahead of time so the flavors can combine. I recommend the onion it adds a great flavor. Make sure to shake well before using.

So, okay I am late and did not post last week. We have been passing a stomach bug around in our house and dh had strep and was in the hospital so I really did not get to try a lot of the recipes I wanted to. I did have the Hawaiian Chicken and I would highly recommend that recipe. You do have to really like pineapples to like it. Dh is not big on pineapples so I used tidbits instead of the crushed and he picked it out. He said the chicken was really good though and he would eat it again.Anyways, here is my menu.
Monday- Chicken Noodle Soup and Sandwiches (I was sick)
Tuesday- Chicken Salad Sandwiches (we are still eating light)
Wednesday- Ritz Chicken, mashed potaotes, green beans
Thursday- Homemade Pizza Night
Friday- Chicken Manacotti, salad
Saturday- Spaghetti, Salad
Sunday- Chicken Cordon Bleu( I got these frozen from Walmart, so easy!), green beans, baked potaoes

Habit 2: Toy pickup- This has really become a habit in my house. The twins do this before going to bed. I also moved all of there toys in their room and it has helped me keep my living room clean too.
Habit 3: Prepare for church on Saturday night- I was ready but several of us woke up sick so we did not get to go.
Habit 4: Study for Sunday School lesson 15 minutes everyday- I still need to work on this some more. I missed a couple of days this week too .

Well, I did really well this week with the habits I am working on. Here is a recap of what I am working on.
Habit 1: Making bed everday- I have done really well, this is almost a habit.
Habit 2: Toy pickup- This has really become a habit in my house. The twins do this before going to bed.
Habit 3: Prepare for church on Saturday night- I did really good on this this week.
Habit 4: Study for Sunday School lesson 15 minutes everyday- Missed a day or two but my lesson is ready and I feel better than usual.
This week I am going to work on family prayer twice a day. We have a lesson at church this week on prayer that I read and it really motivated me to work on this. One thing in the lesson that really stood out is that praying some of the time might have been okay in the past but in the future it will not be enough. We need to have all the protection that we can. My family does it when we are all together, but I talked to dh about doing it with ds in the morning before they leave for school. I also need to be better at praying with the kids at night bby myself since dh is usually not here. I loved this lesson and really learned a whole lot! I can not wait to see how the teacher presents it tommorrow.
