We have been taken over by germs in our household for the past two weeks and this mama has been going crazy. Luckily hubby, myself and wild man jr are okay. Sweet girl is still on the mends. So the last thing I could think about was cooking much less blogging. Good thing for freezer meals.
But now that I’m better I have been in such a nesting mode lately. I mean hello look at the name of the blog – and no I’m not pregnant. I think I am going through a “fall” cleaning of everything instead of spring cleaning. You should see all the little nooks and crannies I have been organizing. And last fall I had Amelia so I was still wearing maternity clothes. So I have been selling some clothes, donating some, and of course buying a few.
And since it’s my birthday month (yes that’s a thing) I’m going to New York soon! So I might as well do a little clothing shopping there right? Well maybe – I might be too focused on eating and drinking. And heavens just taking a vacation with John. This will actually be our first one without family, friends or kids since our honeymoon crazy right?
Speaking of crazy – if you have noticed some of my weekly dinner menus lately I have been a little honey mustard crazy. Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken, Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts and now this dressing. This is all quite comical to me since mustard used to be one of the things I could not stand. Now I still don’t care a ton for plain mustard on sandwiches or burgers kind of thing but mixed in I am starting to take a fancy to. What are your thoughts on mustard? Specifically Honey Mustard – okay Honey Mustard Dressing – it’s my new favorite!
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon coarse ground mustard
- ½ tablespoon white distilled vinegar
- Mix all ingredients together until they are fully incorporated.
Last week’s obsession: anything Honey Mustard. This week’s obsession: These Apple Chips! Empty promises. Excuse queen. I’m telling yall I have just become so unreliable I’m sorry. Or maybe I am just scatterbrained lately because the whole house has been sick for over a week. And when I am sick I couldn’t even tell you[Read More…]
Do you ever have food obsessions? About a month ago I got a little honey mustard crazy. First there were these Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken Tenders, a creamy Honey Mustard Dressing, and these Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts. And let’s not forget this pizza oh wait it doesn’t have honey mustard in it just shaved Brussels sprouts.[Read More…]
Fall is officially here!! Well according to the calendar it is but according to my weather app it’s going to be 91 degrees in Alabama. I mean come on it’s almost October – this is the same feeling we had when we lived in Indy and it would be middle of April and still snowing. But I[Read More…]
Two recipes in one week..oh wait Murphy’s law took over – technology got in my way. Long story short I shared this Beet, Fig, and Goat Cheese Sandwich two weeks ago and then wanted to share this Better Than Velveeta Cheese Dip with you just in time for college football but as you can see that didn’t happen. My blog[Read More…]
Excuse me while I cry all over my keyboard because John Grayson start Mother’s Day Out this week and my Amelia is about to turn one and starts next week. Yes this is the same child who one month ago would cry when we’d drop him off at the church or gym nursery. So prayers for him and[Read More…]
I have been the excuse queen lately. I didn’t workout today because I was too tired. I didn’t do the load of laundry because I had to much work to do. I meant to post this Pecan Crusted Snapper with Sweet Potato Puree recipe last week and literally forgot. Are you ever like this? So let’s[Read More…]
I did it. I jumped on the bandwagon. I had to see what all these smoothie bowls were about. And now I see why there was such fascination with them! John Grayson was my first guinea pig. Between his favorite breakfast of banana pancakes or blueberry muffins or pancakes or eggs or cinnamon cereal…okay so[Read More…]
