Oh the adventures of a #boymom. So…yesterday I spent most of my day in the ER (don’t get sympathetic on me yet…this was basically the ER from Stepford, complete with fresh coffee, leather sofas, and recessed lighting for your personal comfort) with the little man, Miss Co, and the wee baby, all thanks to my… Continue reading Easy packed lunches
In case you haven’t noticed, we love anything wrapped in tortillas around here. And…we also love Asian food. So tonight’s dinner is loaded with clean protein and super-foods that are still delicious and kid-friendly. The only downside is the edamame. I HATE shelling edamame. It is seriously the worst. But I digress. I was inspired… Continue reading Asian burritos!
Oh man. Today I am feeling a little pleased with myself. I have officially made a clean-eating birthday cake that is basically the greatest. Now, don’t go getting too excited. I’m not about to put Publix out of business. There’s no lard-infused frosting on this baby, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going anywhere near… Continue reading The Queen of Clean
Well friends, I was SUPER excited to be introducing video to the blog today, showing you how I make my homemade baby food. I am just gaga for my Infantino Squeeze Station, and it makes it so incredibly easy to do baby food that I will probably never buy those expensive little pouches again. I… Continue reading Saturday blitz!
Oh friends. Eating clean on a budget was not always easy for me and my crew. But can we be real for a minute? Living on a budget has not always been easy for me and my crew. Full disclosure here- I had to hit rock bottom- like single mom, do I choose between gas to get… Continue reading Feeding a crowd
I just love Asian food. I didn’t always- I’m not a huge fan of salt, so soy-sauce in anything used to just make me cringe. But in college I discovered this awesome Japanese steakhouse that used such fresh ingredients and had such INCREDIBLE miso soup and ginger salad that I couldn’t get enough. Having said that, somehow… Continue reading Takeout be gone!
As I sat down to write this, I initially thought, “oh man. It’s Monday. Mondays are hard. And Mondays that kickoff a new school year are exceptionally hard.” And then I realized, I could probably say that about every day of the week. And every season of the year. Because getting kids (or adults for… Continue reading Back to routines…
Well today is officially in the books as far as homeschool goes. Wanna know something AMAZING? We were done by 12:00. Okay. Maybe not necessarily amazing. I realized that if all teachers only had to teach ONE student, they’d probably work a short day too. Miss Cora literally breezed through everything I had planned, and I… Continue reading Homeschool kickoff!
One of the biggest hinderers of stress-free meals is a disorganized pantry. Or worse, an empty one. This was me before I had my wake-up call to pull myself together in the kitchen. I’d wait until 6:00 to get started on dinner, and then search through a zillion apps and websites to see what I… Continue reading A well-stocked pantry
School is starting back on Monday…and this mom’s one solution to long days and new routines is having dinner at the ready. As a serious control freak, I have no problem admitting that knowing what everyone will eat offers me significant comfort, especially when the rest of our routine is in transition. So what did… Continue reading Make-ahead meals
