Eggplant Street Tacos – Meatless Monday

Meatless Monday isn’t really a thing around here. Every day is meatless for me. 🙂 But even with that sometimes I get into a rut with my meatless selections. I do love eggplant though. So when our awesome across the street neighbor brought over these eggplants I knew I wanted to use them in tacos. Continue reading “Eggplant Street Tacos – Meatless Monday”

Last Minute Easter Craft – Fast and Easy

So if you were to ask me last month about any Easter crafts I was working on, I could have shown you a list of things I had planned. Honestly there were a few more things on that list that I just didn’t get to do.

Earlier this week we received the call we had been dreading for Billiam’s mom… and just like that we were on our way to Pittsburgh.

All of the crafts I have sitting in my office and plans for spring will be there when we get back. I’m actually sitting in a hotel room somewhere in South Carolina right now, trying to get back to my to do list before I fall too far behind.

I Tried Making Silk Dyed Easter Eggs…

So usually this time of year Pinterest is filled with pages and pages of beautifully dyed Easter eggs that seem a bit too good to be true. Each year I tell myself I’m not going to wait till the last minute to see if any of them actually work. Like in real life.

The Silk Dyed egg tutorials seemed easy enough, and I made sure to read through 2 or 3 different postings. They were all the same. Except one had an extra step. I’ll note that as I go through how my trial with six eggs went.

Screen Free Car Activities for your Kids

Keeping your kids occupied and happy in the car is hard. The older they get, I’m hoping it may get easier… but honestly, right now it feels like a job.

Screen-free that is. I know that there are tons of apps that would probably save my sanity, as well as the DVD players that go around the headrests. But I want my kids to look out the window. To be bored. To listen to the radio. To ask questions. To see something they have never seen before. Continue reading “Screen Free Car Activities for your Kids”

Rainbow Candy Grapes

I didn’t realize how popular these grapes would be as I was making them. It seemed that as fast as I could make them my boys were walking by and grabbing them.

They are a super simple and quick snack to make for a bunch of different occasions. The great thing about these is that you can customize the colors that you use.
