I’m back! After taking a few weeks hiatus, I am finally back here. Between packing, then moving, then unpacking, my kitchen skills got dusty. We were saying goodbye to friends, spending a few more meals out than normal, and had to reinvent the kitchen we are in now. But I am here. Alive and well as we finally get settled in.
I spent some time on Sunday doing a little kitchen cheating myself. I roasted a whole chicken and shredded it to keep in the freezer, I also created our weekly menu for the next two weeks and a shopping list to go with it. But one of my favorite accomplishments this past week was smoothie pops, and the popularity of them.
I whipped up a big batch of smoothie. Greek yogurt, my favorite frozen berries from Trader Joe’s, frozen mango, Kale and just a bit of juice to thin it out. Not only did Brady love it, but he’s amazed and in love with drinking it frozen out of the pop mold.
I also ordered these for lunch packing: Bento Boxes which make lunch packing easier for sure. Yesterday for lunch Brady got carrots and zucchini sticks with a cheese wedge, two hard-boiled eggs and strawberries and blueberries mix with a dollop of yogurt and I did not have to try to squeeze three containers into the lunch box.
Finally, we’ve been using these: Honey Sticks which we just love. Brady gets to use them as a treat, or I can grab one to take with me for tea. It’s just the right size!
