What’s for Dinner {February 19, 2015} …a root canal…and a blog conference…

If you’re new here, read my first What’s for Dinner post to get filled in on what’s going on. If you’ve been to this rodeo before, let’s get to business.

This post is super late, because I’ve been a busy girl. Last week I flew to Utah to attend a blog conference and also to have a root canal.

Root Canal…..normally I don’t fly thousands of miles for my dental work, but seeings how I was coming to Utah anyway and my brother is an endodontist, it seemed like a good plan.  [Read more…]

Oatmeal is not my favorite breakfast food, but it’s so nutritious and I want to be healthy so…..I’ve spent some time finding ways that I can stand to eat it.

I’m happy to report that not only can I stand to eat it made this way, Overnight Oatmeal with Banana and Chia Seeds, I actually LOVE it and it has become one of my favorite breakfasts.

It’s so filling and full of fiber and protein, such a GREAT way to start the day!

What’s for Dinner {February 12, 2015}

If you’re new here, read my first What’s for Dinner post to get filled in on what’s going on. If you’ve been to this rodeo before, let’s get to business.

We had spaghetti for dinner and I totally forgot to take a picture…but look I took this picture of my cute baby today. Cute BabyWhat a day!  Started out with preschool this morning for Charlotte, I was the helper. Well, at least I was supposed to be the helper. Trever didn’t fall asleep like he usually does so I don’t know how “helpful” I was, but I was another adult in the room…so that counts for something.

It was Jump Rope for Heart at school today and I had told the boys I would try and make it if their times were not during preschool. I called the school to check as soon as I got back from preschool.

When we got to the school the parking lot was pretty empty. This should’ve been my first clue. We walked in and were greeted with strange looks when we went to check in at the office. [Read more…]

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Forget the cookies, just eat the dough!

Seriously. THIS DOUGH IS AMAZING!

All these years I thought I hated Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, wrong, I was wrong, I just prefer them in dough form.

The cooked ones are pretty darn tasty too, but, the dough….YUM!

I was also shocked that my kids liked them so much, I had just assumed that they had inherited my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie aversion and would turn their noses up to them, but again, I was wrong. [Read more…]
