Toddler Play! The Old Fashion Way

p>

 

I have a confession in the three (plus) months since my second son was born, Ry (as I'm calling him here) has spent a lot of time watching PBS Kids. Thank goodness for PBS kids. But he is still watching too much TV. This was in an effort to confine him to one spot while I nursed the baby. 

And no, Issie (as I am calling him here) isn't really on what I would call a schedule, it has gotten easier to find ways to occupy my sweet Ry while I feed Issie

I have wanted to find some ways to occupy Ry that are both fun and educational. And since my house already looks like it was hit by an F5 tornado, I don't mind if games are a bit messy.

Creamy sausage stuffed shells

So this is kind of a funny story.

Last week when I made our meal plan I totally miscalculated everything we had in our freezer. When I went to pull some chicken out for Monday's meal I realized all we had was sausage. Three different types of frozen sausage!

I told my husband I was NOT going back to the store so I hoped he liked sausage. He didn't complain.

So I whipped this up and boy was it good. Creamy Sausage Stuffed Shells.

Baked Cheesy Garlic Shrimp and Grits 

I love shrimp and grits. Don't you? I used to find the concept so strange. Grits are a breakfast food! Wrong. They are the ultimate comfort food.

I whipped this up a couple weeks ago and it was a big hit.
