Arla Dofino Back to School with Havarti Deliciousness #HavartiParty #sponsored #MC

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”  I love cheese, our household is full of cheese addicts. I don’t think any one of us does not like cheese and so this campaign was a total YES when I saw the chance to apply to take part in it.

{Mama and Son Time} Making Pizza with my Boys

I purchased pizza crust from Market Basket, pizza sauce, shredded cheese and some pepperoni slices earlier in the day. I set up the crusts on pan as well as sauce and cheese in two bowls so that the boys could have […]

What Do you Mean You Don’t Like That?

Every evening I pack up a nice cold lunch for my oldest and middle child, usually they get some form of deli meat & cheese sandwich, plus two sides and a capri sun for drink. Each day I pack their various sides, sometimes it’s raisins and crackers other times it’s applesauce and crackers.  What I pack with my kids drink and sandwich really is a matter of what I have available in the house. That is when I find out just how little I know my kids, some days. For instance, last I knew my daughter and my middle child […]
