It is time for our HAPPY LIST party hosted by Ricki Jill over at ART @ HOME. Go on over and check out all the happiness.
Here is my HAPPY List this week:
I had a SUPER WEEKEND! It definitely ranks up to the top five in a long time. Friday night after work I met up with a dear friend from my old job. The two of us try to meet up every month. Typically it is dinner or a lunch, this time I found a new place in our area where you go and have a glass of wine and paint. It was so much fun. I will post about it tomorrow. Here are a couple of sneak peek shots.
Saturday we had a friend come over for dinner. She used to work with Todd prior to Johnson County and City dispatchers joined as one.
We also had Vegetable Tian
Recipe posted below.and a Tomato & Mozzarella salad.
Recipe posted later this week.I baked the Diabetic Two Ingredient Cake. You can find the recipe here.
After dinner Ethan came home and we all five (Noah was at our dinner as well) played Phase 10. We had a lot of fun. Having a great friend over for the evening and being able to cook a great healthy meal for makes me HAPPY! Knowing I did a great job planning, with dessert they both (we just found out she is diabetic too now.) had the required 4 grams of carbohydrates for dinner. This makes me HAPPY too, taking care of people I care about.
Sunday was a very relaxing day for me. I went out only to take Ethan to his girlfriends. I relaxed around the house and did nothing but play on the computer, read my book, did a little crafting. I am working on some baskets for a fundraiser.
Watch for a tutorial this week.Very enjoyable weekend which made me so HAPPY!! What are you HAPPY about this week?

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Finely dice the onion and mince the garlic. Saute both in a skillet with olive oil until softened (about five minutes).
5. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, top with cheese and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
