  • Toddler-Approved Thanksgiving Dishes

    BRING ON THE FOOD.

    It’s elastic waistband time, and I’m only dreaming about the food, I haven’t even started consuming it.  I’m planning out  our Thanksgiving menu, and I just realized how odd it will be to only cook for our family this year.  We won’t have any family or random friends around our table this year. After moving almost a 26-hour drive away, family is choosing to come visit for Christmas instead both holidays this year. We are terribly sad, but still are planning quite the feast!   This also means that the ratio of adults to children is 1:2.5.  We are outnumbered with our five little ones.  Lord knows that I am not about to slave away for two days to create the perfect table spread for an audience who will turn their noses up to it all!  I am  not going to spend an hour forcing my kids to eat and try things.  Continue reading

    Let the Holiday Season Begin

    How did November walk through the front door already?  In less than 2 months, we will be ringing in 2018.  TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN.  HOW? And where are the flying cars?  My elementary school self is extremely disappointed…

    I digress.

    NOVEMBER is HERE.

    We have close to 3 weeks until Thanksgiving (HOLY CRAP), and about 7 weeks until Christmas and Hanukkah, and 8 weeks until the new year.  That’s not much time once you throw in the everyday life events of work, keeping children alive (and running them to every sport on the planet) and doing laundry (OMG THE NEVERENDING LAUNDRY).

  • Easy, Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas

    You have been cooking for days and the main event has come to an end.  The dishes aren’t even out of the dishwasher yet, but you need to figure out what to do with all of the Thanksgiving leftovers.

    I’ve been pinning ideas and laughing at the options out there.  I cannot be the only parent that watches their children munch a few bites of turkey, eat some potatoes, and push around everything else on their plates…  right?  All of that hard work!  Who am I kidding? I’ll be excited if my kids taste the stuffing, but I won’t hold my breath.  Have you looked at the leftover recipe ideas for kids out in the blogosphere?  Cranberry waffles.  Will your kids eat something other than maple syrup on top of their waffles? If you answer yes, please send me all of your parenting secrets.  I would bet very few toddlers will devour a waffle covered in a thick cranberry sauce full of chunky berries.  Am I wrong?
