My lazy go to meal when I’m not feeling creative in the kitchen is roasted chicken and potatoes. I always have both on hand and frequently reach for this “recipe” when I’m just trying to feed my family. Luckily we all like this dish so it’s a family go-to.

I saw a cold pasta dish at Trader Joe’s the other day and decided to make a warm version. I boiled pasta according to the box and added TJ’s green veggie mix into the wok. Voila! Ps no one other then me ate it. Womp womp.

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a green board and a make your own fruit kabobs.

We recently celebrated the Jewish holiday called, Purim. It’s a mixture of Halloween (we wear costumes) and Easter (we give out baskets to family and friends. Every year I like to do a theme. This year we chose ocean. Hubby and I were lifeguards, Sarah was a mermaid and Jacob was a shark.

Our mishloach manot aka baskets were also ocean themed. We had sea weed, gummy fish, blue Gatorade, shark candy, sea shells, lei and of coarse the Purim dessert, hamentashen cookies.

What’s Up Wednesday {November 2018}

 I’m linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.

What we’re eating this week…

My kids are big fans of pancakes, but sometimes due to time and busy mornings that’s just not possible. I’m a big fan of the brand Kodiak Cakes so when I was saw they had microwaveable pancakes cups, I was sold. Yum! This stuff is so good!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! A cup of hot coffee and some kind of egg dish is my perfect pair. A few years ago hubby made this breakfast for me and I’ve been hooked ever since. Some people call it egg in a basket, egg in a hole, or even one eyed jack. Whatever it’s called it’s my current fav!

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending the weekend with love for our 10 year anniversary!

What I’m loving…

Target’s new feature Drive Up! Do you have it in your town? I love it! You order your items on your app. Then they send you a message 2 hours later (mine was only 1.5 hours later) that’s is ready to be picked up and tada, you drive up, click on I’m here on your app and THEY WALK OUT TO YOUR CAR AND HAND YOU YOUR BAG!!!! No more over spending, or taking a cranky toddler or a daughter that always wants to “look” at the Bullseye section! It’s been amazing! I highly recommend it.

Question of the month is: What is your favorite Elf on the Shelf trick? 

Well since we don’t celebrate Christmas or have an Elf on the Shelf I thought I’d share my favorite candle instead. I usually get my candles from Bath and Body Works, but after the super strong fall candles we got I decided to look for something that wasn’t so strong. I found this cinnamon and nutmeg candle at Homegoods the other day and just love it!
