 Friday night was the end of a very busy week. I just finished volunteering at school for the past 2 days for the schools Science Fair. I came home Friday afternoon and managed to make up a gourmet meal in 15 minutes before we heading back to the school for the Science Awards. I made angel hair pasta with mizithra cheese (love that cheese) and a side of brussel sprouts with prosciutto and heavy whipping cream. If you don't like brussels sprouts, you should try these. They are so delicious and easy.

On a side (non picture) note, my kids did great at the science fair. You've seen the pictures about Antibubbles, Mr. C took home the silver medal (2nd place) in the primary level Physics category. He is very excited. We haven't decided if we will go to the state science fair yet. Miss M also received 2nd place for her Coral Reef study, but didn't score enough points for the medal. Her project topic was too complex and her judges comments said to make it more simple next year. She's pretty upset, but doing a great job understaning. We are already thinking about projects ideas for next year and whether Miss R will be entering the science fair as a kindergartener.


  1. That looks absolutely delicious!! And congrats on the 2nd place win. I'm sure your daughter will win next year!
    And way to go on the travelling with 4 kids! I'm about to embark on a flight alone with my two to meet their dad for his break from Afghanistan. I'm just scared!!

  2. You will do great! We bring snacks, water, movies (if you can). Last time we bought triangle shaped crayons so they didn't roll off the tray. Bring a sucker to suck on during take off and landing. It's easier than trying to get them to yawn.
