One Tray Meal

Friday, August 28th, 2015

We’re always excited to put the oven on and start cooking at the beginning of fall, are you the same?

How about making dinner on just one baking tray and that’s all!

We sliced up our veggies and thawed chicken, placed them on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with s+p.

Bake at 350 for about 40 mins until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through!

A delicious, healthy meal with only one dish to clean up…Winner, winner chicken dinner!

Bacon and Brie Baguettes

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Last Christmas our sis in law, Kimberly made the most amazing bacon and brie baguettes and we haven’t stopped thinking about them since!

Comfort food season is almost upon us, so we thought it was about time to recreate…

We first cooked the bacon, and then sliced brie onto sliced baguettes and toasted in the oven until the cheese bubbled.

Topped with bacon and you have a decadent meal ready for a weekend brunch, the first football game, or any day you need a treat.

Bread, cheese and bacon….nothing not to love!

College football season is just around the corner and with two crazy fan husbands we have to embrace the season…

To make we used our easy baby bow template (HERE)…

We then tied university colored ribbons instead of the classic bow.

Maybe the girls will be the lucky charms this year…let’s hope so!

Go Bruins!

Cheese and Crackers for Lunch

Friday, August 14th, 2015

One of my early memories is of me sat in our living room at lunch time, watching my 15 minute program, with my mother on her chair with a big bread board across her knee prepping crackers.

.

Today with lil mouths of our own, the crackers are back!

They are such and easy and tasty lunch at any time, but in these hot summer months we really appreciate little prep and no heat!

THESE crackers are our recent fave, (we’ve been finding them at Costco) they are gluten free so Em can enjoy too.

Topped with Brie cheese, bacon and basil.

(Our baby version is goldfish crackers and Havarti cheese.)

Paired with what ever fruit on had you have the perfect lunch!

YUM!

Holler Dollar: Teeny Tiny Elastics

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I have only one purpose in mind when doing my hair every day… to deter those little fingers from pulling it all day long.

Two little pieces pulled back with teeny tiny elastic does the trick nicely.

500 elastics for a dollar at the Dollar Tree is so much cheaper than anywhere else.

They will come in handy when Jane gets enough hair for pigtails too!
