Make-Ahead Breakfast: Easy Eggs and Veggies

Dan is constantly telling me that I need to be better about eating breakfast. Most of the time I just forget! I get caught up in getting food in the boys' bellies and filling up Elijah's lunch box and putting dishes away and keeping an eye out for the bus. Then I hurry to get a bit of work done before Sammy and I head out for errands or the gym. At that point I remember. Oops. Tummy is empty.

BLEAT Sandwich (a yummy twist on the BLT!)

One of the things I love most about my little brother is his girlfriend. She is pretty and kind and she puts up with my brother. :) She and I also share an intense love for the delicious avocado. Mmmm...aren't avocados good on just about everything? A few months ago she texted me, saying that she had added avocado slices to her BLT sandwich. My brother wanted to add an over-easy egg to his, so they threw it all together. DELICIOUS! Why had I never thought of this?! Thanks, guys, for the idea. I will be making this delicious sandwich OFTEN.

Omelets on the go

Dark grey clouds that hung low in the sky smacked down my lofty dreams for this post. It won't be nearly as cool to tell you about what I had planned as it would have been to pull it off. I'll try. On-the-go breakfasts are awesome! Everyone is in a hurry in the morning, right? I thought of skydivers, who get up with the birds to jump out of airplanes. If the sun is shining and the plane is flying, the last thing we want to think about is nourishment. Coffee, maybe, but food. I wanted to create a video that involved skydivers grabbing these on-the-go omelets as we walked to the airplane. And then jumping out of the plane

BLT Salad

First and foremost, I picked a winning comment from my last post. Pam G, look for an email from me with details! Can we please go to Ireland together?

I know I've mentioned this about a hundred times before, but I love salads. Especially in the summer, I could eat a salad every day. I'll be honest about where the inspiration for this one came from. Bacon was on sale. Yep. So we bought a bunch of bacon and my husband and I said to each other, "What in the world are we going to do with all of this bacon?!" And then we both said simultaneously, "BLTs!" And then one of the light bulbs in our kitchen went out

Spruced-up spaghetti - the perfect use for leftover spaghetti noodles!

The clock has been ticking loudly in my aging ears. My 39th birthday is tomorrow, so I am preparing for my last full year of being 30-something. In addition to feeling like the middle ages are looming, this is also the end of the season of having more children. This realization has been unexpectedly sad for me! We sorted through our baby items and gave some things away to a good friend last week. It is comforting knowing these items that have been so precious to us for so many years will be in a loving home!
