Taco Bout a Party!

Who says you can only have tacos on Tuesdays? We love tacos, no matter what day of the week! When Ben and I started dating, our families both started having a weekly dinner night for us all to gather together and catch up. Once a month, Ben and I host our families for dinner! This week, we hosted a Taco Bout A Party! They say, “When you find true love hold it with both hands because tacos can be messy sometimes!” so to say my heart is full is an understatement. Keep reading for our favorite taco idea!

Chocolate Tofu Pudding

Although it isn’t always easy, I do what I can to have healthy eating habits in our home. My son is such a picky eater, so it can be difficult to get him to eat foods that have a healthy twist. Normally he can smell out every vegetable I try to hide in his favorite foods - nothing gets by him! I have had to be reallyyy sneaky lately to hide nutrient-dense foods into his 5 food groups (you know - chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese, yogurt, and dessert). This week, I managed to sneak something that may seem crazy into his chocolate… Tofu! Yes, you read that right!

One Pot Lemon Chicken Piccata

Being a working single mom, I don't have a lot of time to cook. It's very rare that you will find me making a dinner using more than one pot and six ingredients! I love one-pot meals because they allow me to spend less time in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes, and spend more time with Aimery. My favorite week night recipe to make is Lemon Chicken Piccata! Not only is it a one-pot meal with just six ingredients, but it also takes less then 30 minutes from prep to clean up. Plus, this recipe includes my favorite pasta, DaVinci Spaghetti

Fun Back to School Lunchbox Ideas

Aimery is starting preschool this year and I can not BELIEVE he's starting school already! I found an amazing preschool in the area that allows children at his age to start early, and I was lucky to grab the last spot for him this fall! Although I'm going to miss spending summer days with him, I really am looking forward to getting on a set routine of knowing when he's going to school so I can plan work accordingly. I also signed him up for soccer practice on Saturday mornings, so our life is about to get real busy!
