{Mama and Son Time} Making Pizza with my Boys

I used to have a tradition that every Friday we would make pizza or at least have pizza for dinner. I really miss this tradition, but while money is tight for now with the new home purchase, we will attempt to do our best to make it a once a month event or maybe twice a month for now. 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 […]

Rising Cost of Peanut Butter Just in Time for Peanut Butter Lovers Month

I personally always […]

Ever Hide Food on Your Kids?

Oh I do. All of the time. But what is worse …. I can’t seem to remember where the food was hidden. Oh yes … bananas … those are a not so good thing to find up the highest part of the cupboard weeks maybe months later… I don’t hide food anymore from my children. A bunch of bananas only last a day around these parts but if I hide them … I will forget about them .. and then fruit flies come … in armies …. Lesson learned.
