Fun Filled Friday Night, Family Date Night

It’s the last Friday night of 2016!  We celebrated by using gift cards we received for Christmas, enjoying dinner, and shopping.  We began the evening with a leisurely ride south to Gainesville, where we had reservations at Bonefish Grill. We enjoyed Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos, some with a side of fries, some with a side…

Special Requests 

It’s not Thanksgiving without Pumpkin Pie!  Or, at least, that’s what Zach thinks.  After a day of hunting, I surprised my guys with a Pumpkin Pie, for a late night snack.  Nothing fancy with this recipe, just use the one on the back of the canned pumpkin.  (I omit the giner and cloves, and add…

In Everything Give Thanks!

It has been a while since I’ve had time to spend in the kitchen.  The past several weeks have been filled with long days at the office, school projects, soccer games, amd soccer carpool.  I’d love to tell you that during all of this, we never hit the drive thru, and ate out of the…

Robyn, this is for you!

I wish I could say that I haven’t written a blog recently, because I’ve been in the kitchen, cooking up amazing southern cuisine.  For the past month, I have been double booked Comptroller by day, and triple booked soccer mom by night.  Which means there hasn’t been much time for cooking. But, my dear sweet…

Desperate Kitchen Times & First Times

Happy Saturday!  I “created” this recipe a few weeks ago, in a desperate kitchen time of, “what’s for dinner?”.  It was a hit, and quickly made its way onto our routine menu. First time ever, I’m giving you step by step instructions.  Here we go! Pepper Jack Chicken Rolls Ingredients: boneless, skinless chicken breast (1 per person,…

Going Banana’s!

How many times do you buy a bunch of banana’s and a few days later find that they are over ripe and no one will eat them?  I had good intentions when I bought a bunch at Sam’s last week to add to our lunches, and smoothies for breakfast throughout the week.  There was just…

Saturday Night Dinner

It has been a busy couple of weeks. School, work, soccer, and church activities.  I seriously don’t remember the last time I cooked.  Thankfully I had a few dishes in the freezer that helped us out in the evenings.  Saturday was a lazy family day.  Perfect opportunity to spoil my guys with a home cooked…

Football Saturday

It’s been a lazy Saturday of football games and family fun!  I did make a quick trip to our local produce market.  I seem to always leave with much more than I had intended. Here’s a peak at my basket full of goodies.  There was more, it wouldn’t fit in the picture.  Stay tuned in…

Birthday Celebration ~continued

A few weeks ago we celebrated our sons 14th birthday.  I shared in the Birthday Breakfast post, that this years birthday theme was fishing.  The day was full,of fishing in the pond, an upcoming fishing trip as a birthday gift, and a low country boil. This celebration favorite was started with a shrimp and crab…

Birthday Breakfast!

Today, we celebrate our son’s 14th birthday!  Over the years, we have done many things to celebrate.  From surprise party’s to secret destinations.  Daily celebrations for a week, to quiet family dinners at home.  We always try to have theme that everything revolves around. This year, it is fishing!  After a late night of games…

Ta Da!  Hurricane Party!

As we wait for Hurricane Hermine to move through our area, I thought it was appropriate to share a few hurricane preparedness tips.  Everyone knows the needed supplies.  Bottled water, batteries, flashlights, candles, etc… But, what else is part of your hurricane survival kit? As I roamed the aisles of Publix earlier in the week,…
