We have done a few muffin tin meals in the time I have been on a blogging break. I thought I would post them up here. This one must have been around Valentines Day. The girls love the GoGo squeeZ applesauce. This is our "Foods From Around the World" MTM.... Continue reading

I will write a "well I'm back" post here. I just needed a break for a minute, because writing this blog was starting to feel like a big chore on top of all of my other chores :) My last post was in February, so I guess I will just... Continue reading

Well, I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging. You know, sometimes life gets in the way of blogging, ;) We had some changes in our family schedule, due to my hubby getting a new job with the company he works for. He has always worked a straight midnight... Continue reading

I came so close to not making a muffin tin for the girls tonight. It has been a very fun but also very tiring weekend, spent with lots of family time on both my hubby's and my sides. I barely remember saying that we would have a muffin tin today,... Continue reading

I was supposed to make tacos or burritos or enchiladas tonight per my pre-planned menu. But when I went to make one of those things tonight I realized we had no tortillas. Whoopsie! So as I was putting my improvised cheese toast and green beans on a plate and it... Continue reading

I made up a new recipe. I just realized within the 6 months or so how easy it is to bake from scratch. I used to always just use baking mixes and premixed cookie dough. And muffins are especially easy. I had some bananas in the freezer I needed to... Continue reading

I try to always let the girls help me in the kitchen whenever they are interested in helping. Which is most of the time. I have noticed I get a lot more buy in on eating or trying new things if they have helped prepare the meal. They love tasting... Continue reading

Saturday was my birthday--34! I had a nice day with my hubby and my girls. We went out to eat for lunch and then went to the movie rental store to pick out a few movies. Since we had a family movie night, we did another Snack MTM while we... Continue reading

Halloween was fun! We asked the girls' cousin Addie and Aunt Katie to come trick or treating with us. And this worked out great for me because Andy had to take a nap and couldn't go with. It was awesome to have another adult with :) My little kitty cat... Continue reading

We had a pumpkin carving party at Andy's parents with the girls cousins, and had a later dinner over there. So I just planned a snack for the girls and we watched a little Halloween Shrecktacular. I love Sunday nights because we usually just watch movies and hang out. Here... Continue reading

The girls and I had a little pumpkin carving party. We put the movie Corpse Bride on, and pulled up Pinterest on the computer to look for carving inspiration. Once we had our ideas set, it was time to start getting the pumpkin "guts" out. Last year, Big Sis was... Continue reading

I heard a quote on the radio today by some celeb mom that says she doesn't get caught up in what she looks like or wears, because the things that define her are much bigger than that. That statement hit home with me. Although I didn't realize it until I... Continue reading

The favorite word at our house lately is "SPOOOOky". The girls are in the Halloween spirit, and we did a little decorating around the house with spiderwebs, skeletons, and spiders. We topped the whole thing off with a bloody handprint gel cling on the window. So I made a nice... Continue reading

It has been an absolutely horrid week for me, I worked 70 hours this week, many of them at home, and really did very little other than work, work, work. I did actually do our Muffin Tin Meal this week on Monday, after we got home from Dance. I just... Continue reading

I said in my last post I was going to do and apple theme this week, but we ended up having company over this evening. We had a lovely visit from my hubby's sister, her boyfriend and our new niece. I would have felt bad serving them apple shaped grilled... Continue reading

I always feel like I am trying to cram everything that needs to be done in my life into this tiny little time frame. I am sure every working mom (or every non working mom, for that matter) feels the same way. I had wanted to do a Circus theme... Continue reading

Ok, so I had to move my MTM to Sunday night because Big Sis is starting Monday night dance lessons tomorrow. She is super excited and wanted to bust out the Bella Dancerella the girls got all dolled up and did a little ballerina practice. I have a feeling... Continue reading

I am totally off track right now because of yesterday's holiday. I totally thought today was Monday...holy cow. Today was Big Sis's first day of 3 yr Preschool. We could have opted out of enrolling her, but we really felt she was ready for some interaction and social time with... Continue reading

It is State Fair time! I love going to the Minnesota State Fair. One of my favorite things about the Fair is the food. I recall one trip to the Fair years ago in which a friend and I needed to visit the first aid station to beg for antacids... Continue reading

Right when I was getting home from work tonight, I heard the little musical tinkling of the local Ice Cream Truck. We have been waiting all summer for a chance to get ice cream treats from the truck, so even though it was right before supper, we flagged him down... Continue reading

So last year, Andy and I planted our first garden. It did ok, and we learned a bunch of things. We ended up giving away quite a bit of produce last year. Last year I wanted to try to do some canning, but never really was able to do it,... Continue reading

Our theme for Muffin Tin Monday today is "Things in the Sky". As I was working on putting it together, the girls were playing in the living room. Then Little Dude wanders into the kitchen with a tube of diaper cream in her hand, looking like this: We had to... Continue reading
