My mom is going to laugh at me yet again. We’ve been having conversation about getting older and losing our minds. She’s famous for buying gifts, forgetting and then finding them stashed all over the house. I laugh now but I’m bound to do it myself. Actually I have no doubt I will. Case in point the horde of baking potatoes I now have in my possession.
Update 2: Homemade Almond Milk the Video!
We got cow’s, we got soy and now we almond. Milk that is! Now I’m not going to get all preachy or tell you I’m going dairy free. Although I’ve been thinking about it. There has always been something the creeps me out about drinking milk that’s made made for baby cows. And I never understood the stigma against breast-feeding when we freely drink the “breast milk” of another species. It just seems illogical to me.
I can’t believe I pulled it off!! A few weeks ago I saw this awesome post on Noble Pig with a recipe for Pasta Pie and I knew immediately had to make it. Of course I couldn’t leave it alone, I HAD to give it my own spin. What can I say? it’s a disease. Read the rest of this post
Have I told you about the toddlers obsession with Chinese food? He LOVES Low Mein and Chicken with Broccoli. He even attempts to eat with those kid chopsticks they hold together with a rubber band. It’s totally cute. So for lunch yesterday I thought, why not make a homemade version with what I had on hand?
To my surprise… Read the rest of this post
The toddler (crazy as usual) and I make dinner from start to finish. As I say in the video I really wanted to show you how fast this meal can come together. The video is 22 minutes, but I’m telling ya, if I didn’t have a toddler to entertain, discipline and talk to, it would take me 10. I swear!
I whipped this up on my way out the door this morning. I wanted something quick, easy, and filling that would use the over ripening cherry tomatoes I was going to have to throw away.
My mission was a success. I’m STILL satisfied and I ate this over 4 hours ago! I’m shocked! Read the rest of this post
This weeks video is a bit crazy. Yup, that’s the only word I can use to describe it, crazy. I was going to edit but I just didn’t haven’t it in me today, I’ve been having some back problems. :( Read the rest of this post
They liked it… They REALLY liked it! I can’t believe it. The only complaint came from the toddler was when he informed me he did not like “stuff” on his peppers. How can fault him for preferring raw peppers over cooked. So I took them off his plate (after he tried a bite, of course) and replaced them with uncooked green pepper strips. That’s a worthy compromise in my book. Other then that both the husband and toddler’s plates were clean. Read the rest of this post
Oh my WORD! I’m SO glad I made this even though I knew the husband and toddler would hate it. Have I mentioned the husband’s unmanly trait of hating chili? Seriously I must be married to the only man in America who doesn’t enjoy a bowl of chili. It’s CHILI! Not only is he not a chili man he’s not corn muffin man either. So when I mentioned this idea I got the old *eye roll*. I made it anyway and had burgers ready for him and the toddler. This way I could enjoy the fun meal. I’ve learned to pick my battles and this was one I just didn’t feel like fighting. Read the rest of this post
The name says is all. It’s a FAIL! BUT on toddler entertainment alone the video is worth posting. He’s in rare form and practically falling asleep by the end although he’ll never admit it. So take this video at face value. As mom taught me, it never hurts to try! That being said.. I can’t wait to try this idea again!
This started as a quick vegetarian lunch idea and then I had a conversation with a friend who said he thought I needed more protein and suggested tuna. As soon as he did I looked down and said “Perfect! That would be awesome in this!” I added a small can and it was delish. It was without it too, but the tuna added that, ummm, well, tuna texture. :)
I had another one of those morning where nothing sounded good. I didn’t feel like eggs, I’m sick of cereal and I just didn’t want to make muffins. I was just craving something different. Twenty minutes later, Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa was born! What can I say? I LOVE the challenge of inventing! :)
