We’ve been enjoying the treat of weekend breakfasts again and even made these waffles on a weekday. Jared is the main waffle maker in our household and this recipe is a keeper. Best waffles. Ever
And while we’re not strictly Paleo in this household or strict anything for that matter, we do strive for balance. These Paleo Potsticker Burgers were the perfect balance to all the carby goodness of the waffles. They were very much enjoyed by all of us and super easy to pull together. It’s a great winter food for adding some zing to dinner.
These Chocolate Cereal Bars are a new favourite with all of us, I love the list of healthy ingredients and that I can stash them in the freezer for grab and go snack times.
I have been obsessed lately with putting stuff in my water. I started with the innocent lemon but have moved on to slices of cucumber. If I have any fresh herbs, I’ll throw them in there too. It gives the water a delicious alive feeling and I drink far more water when it’s slightly flavoured.
I made watercolours with the girls last week and we’ve been painting with them several times. I don’t consider myself a painter by any stretch of the imagination but it was so fun to create pretty colorscapes with my girls. Kilmeny loves painting, she will sit for over an hour and paint by herself. For that reason alone, I will keep painting supplies always on hand.
I’m planning on making more paper mache eggs for spring and brown paper birdnests for our spring mantle, all of which will include much mess and fun.
Bunny Day and One More Bunny by Rick Walton are favourites of both girls. My three year old will sit and ‘read’ them to herself while my little Khaira will bring them over again and again for me to read them. I love the illustrations. Kilmeny is also sitting through longer stories, we’ve read through the first five chapters of Charlotte’s Web in one sitting. I love introducing my childhood favorites to my girls.
I have been super excited about Emily Freeman’s newest book ever since I heard she was writing about it. It’s a book about art and the artist that we all are. The book is A Million Little Ways and releases in November. It is on my birthday wish list, in case anyone wanted to know. She talks a little bit about the book writing process here. A Millon Little Ways
Eating fresh veggies sometimes seems like more work then it’s worth but I got all inspired when I saw these winter salads from Aimee at Simple Bites. These are going on my menu plan. Yum. Winter Salad Inspiration
I saw this post first on Pinterest and read it. Blinking back the tears and whispering amen so as not to wake my little people. Such a breath of fresh air. I re-pinned it and am sharing it here with you. We can be so hard on each other, judging and saying stuff before we know the full story. Whether you have a iPhone or not, the message of love and encouragement is valuable and needed. Dear Mom on the iPhone, I get It
Do you put stuff in your water? Have you been creating anything lately? Read anything good to recommend? Any new favourite recipes?
Happy Weekend, friends!!
