Here in the wonderful Midwest, it’s been cold, snowy, and just plain dreary. I can’t express enough how much I am ready for warmer weather. I could really use a vacation to a beach, but I will settle with flip-flop weather here.

Three of my favorite snack foods: chocolate, crackers, and fruits. I love pairing sweet and salty all into one bite or treat. I try not to keep too many chocolates around the house, because they don’t last long. However, I do keep chocolate wafers to use for treats and I always have plenty of fruit and cracker varieties.

More recently than before, I have been struggling with getting dinner on the table. I have had a hard time managing my time around the house and preparing for it. For that reason I am always in need of quick and easy meals that take less than thirty minutes and have few ingredients. Meals that allow me to use products I keep in on hand.

With three little ones, I have learned that making food and meals into fun shapes is always a win. It’s not always easy though. It can become time-consuming and difficult at times. I don’t have time to try to make everything into different and fun shapes, especially when I have three kids that are always (in their words) ‘so hungry’.

We are down to just under two weeks until the big football game…. who’s excited?!? I know we are, because it’s a great reason to get friends and family together and eat amazing food. It’s time to get out the decorations, cupcakes, and delicious game time snacks for a fun Sunday tradition!

Goals are important to me. Goals of all shapes and sizes. Yes, I love having big goals, but at times, they can be a little overwhelming. Then there are the little ones. The ones that are just baby steps leading to a larger goal. More often than not, they are even more important.

4 days until Christmas! 4 DAYS until Christmas!! That is what I woke up to yesterday. My boys chanting ‘4 days until Christmas’ repeatedly. But wait, what? Only 4 days? How? Where’d the month go? There’s still so much to do, things to buy, and most importantly…food to make.
