Entertaining an Infant

Babies are just delightful, aren't they?

Babies are many things.

They are fun (most of the time).

They are charming.

They are delightful.

But they are hard to enterintain. 


Island Pulled Pork Tacos- Recipe Repeat


I literally dreamed up this recipe once. I had a dream I was standing in my kitchen pulling pulled pork out of my crock pot. I made the entire taco in my dream and when I woke up I told my husband about it.

Is that strange to dream of food? Don't answer that.



Five Week Night Meals for the Tired and Busy

My little ones are still little. Very little. I still have two under to (for the next month!). But our weeks still manage to get busy. 

I know that many of you have growing children, work full time, have a long list of organizations you volunteer with etc. etc. So I thought I would share with you five of my favorite budget and family-friendly weeknight meals. 


The Waking Dad- A Preview


Meal Plan Monday 10-14-13

Hello. Are you guys getting ready for Halloween? I have to say that while I am not a fan of ghosts, witches and anything scary, I do love kids in costumes. And I am very excited about my babies costumes. But we will talk about that another day. 

I do hope everyone had a great weekend. My sweet mother-in-law came to town and Jason and I went on a minidate. 

It was coffee and cheesecake at the cafe inside the Barnes and Noble. But it was a minidate none the less. 

Unfortunately our little guys came down with something (Friday night after the pediatrician's office closed!) and we spent Sunday at urgent care. 

I know, the boy in that picture doesn't look sick. Minus the gross runny nose.

Okay. Meal plan time. Lots of fall things on this weeks menu and some heart healthy stuff as well. 

Monday: Black bean and rice casserole (this is new) Here is a recipe.  

Tuesday:Grilled turkey burgers with carrot chips (and by carrot chips I mean carrots cut to look like chips.) 

Wednesday: Chili. Yes, this was on last week's menu. But we didn't get around to it. 

Thursday: Roasted chicken with roasted vegetables 

Friday: Pizza night!
