The Light at the End of the Tunnel ...


11 School Days until the Summer Break!..........I think I can... I think I can...

Day 4 and 5 of my Real Food Challenge were awesome. I had a smoothie for breakfast Tuesday morning... I was surprised that it kept me full until lunch. I used frozen blueberries, a banana, a cup of spinach, milk and honey. It tasted so good! I would love to experiment with smoothies more, but I have no interest in juicing. Gross.

Lunch was leftover fajitas in my new Easy Lunch Box! I absolutely love these containers. They are the perfect size for my lunches and are Microwave and Dishwasher safe, which makes my life a lot easier. Another thing is those little silicon cupcake liners. They are soooo perfect for separating things you don't want to touch or get all over everything. I ordered mine from Amazon, but I'm sure they have them at WalMart.

When I got home from work Wednesday I cooked a little before going to church. I made some cheddar crackers (a play on goldfish/Cheez its) that are compliable with my Real Food Challenge. B didn't like them, but I did! : ) They aren't as rich as I was expecting them to be, but they taste kind of like a cheese straw, so they were my jam. I also made some tzatziki sauce (the pictures above) to go on whole wheat pita bread and veggies for snacks for the rest of the week. This sauce was sooo good! It's tangy and refreshing... Perfect for the upcoming summer!

Whew! 11 more school days, and it will be summer break! I feel like it was just Christmas... And now here we are! We have Field Day, Graduation and our End of the Year Party to look forward to... I'm just gonna relax and enjoy the rest of the time we have with our babies!


Talking about Mother's Day has been so sweet. Hearing our babies talk about their moms is so stinking cute... And their drawings of their moms are even better : )


Me and Ms. Black...The dream team! And both in stripes. We have had the best year! But we definitely need couple's therapy.


Oh! I almost forgot. I wanted to share this pasta sauce I used for tonight's dinner. It was the only brand at Kroger with no added sugar, so I decided to try it. And it was sooo good! I dressed it up with 1/2 an onion, 2 garlic cloves, 2 shredded carrots, 1/2 a bell pepper and 1/2 a pack of mushrooms. It was delicious. And it passed my "Was it really good?" test: Did B get seconds? Yes!
