For Father's Day I decided to look to Pinterest for some inspiration on an art project we could do for Daddy. I ended up finding some great ideas for hand print art and these are the ones we ended up doing.
After a few super windy days here, my allergies are kicking my bum, but we had to get out to enjoy the beautiful warm weather today :) it was teetering on hot actually. Not sure of the elevation here, but it definitely feels closer to the sun ;)
These two cool chicks were ready to go to the park for our first play date! They requested their sunnies for the walk and posed very willingly for this pic ;) It was so nice to see them being so sweet to each other today, especially since I found out later it was national sibling day! Take the time to tell your siblings how much you love and appreciate them, even those ones that are like siblings in your life :)
So thankful on this Thanksgiving (and everyday) for my wonderful family! My husband amazes me with his daddy skills more and more :) This morning topped the creative charts with his breakfast for the girls! They loved it!!
Aren't they adorable!! A friend of mine gave me this great idea and I'm not sure where she found the idea, but here is how I did it :))
Just melt some chocolate chips for your "glue" and attach a Hershey kiss to the flat side of the mini nilla wafer. Then attach a chocolate chip to the top. (I used regular, but mini ones would work too). Put in the fridge for the melted chocolate to harden and then they are ready to serve :))
For the plate (dollar store) I just decorated it with theme foam stickers I found for fall!!
Such a quick and easy fall dessert! Fun for kids and adults :)
Once a week we try to do a meatless dish. Here is how I made this weeks dish.
1/2 large yellow onion diced
1-Carrot (or equivalent baby carrots)
1-Red bell pepper
1 Jar marinara sauce
1 Jar Alfredo sauce
1 pound Rigatoni pasta
1 16oz of shredded cheese (I used mexican trio blend)
(I was out of mushrooms, otherwise I would have added those too!)
Sauté onion until translucent then add all the chopped veggies into the pan season with a little salt and pepper. When they start to get tender add your marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce. Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. While sauce is simmering boil the pasta (don't cook completely, leave it el dente). Drain pasta and set aside.
Take your glass baking dish (9x13) add some sauce to the bottom just to cover it. Add a layer of pasta, then more sauce and top with cheese. Repeat this layering one more time and be sure to top with cheese! Bake on 375 degrees for 15 min.
It was a hit at my house (even with my girls, they couldn't even tell there were veggies ;) I hope you try it and like it!
