Food Challenges

Since we are in lockdown I am trying to get creative and keep the kids minds off the virus and onto fun things. A few years back my kids were obsessed with a Teen Titans Go episode where they did Burgers vs Burritos. So of course the chef in me decided we were going to get into the kitchen and make our own food challenges. This week we had Taco salad VS homemade stuffed crust pizza and homemade burgers vs burritos. The kids loved it. And the winners of the challenges were stuffed crust pizza and burgers.

During these trying times we need to focus on fun family memories. I hope you try your own challenges and let me know below.

Cereal Dessert

A little while ago I had touched on frugality when it comes to food. I am here to say that not all frugal things are a hit. I decided I was going to trick my Cheerio loving child by buying an off brand box. It was not received well lol. So I had to figure out how I was going to use this box of cereal and not throw it in the compost. I needed something that was going to overpower the taste of the cereal he didn’t like.

So I made this! We turned it into a chocolate and peanut butter dessert 🙂 The kids loved it and we avoided throwing out food, but from now on I’ll just be watching for sales on Cheerios.

A New Family Member

2020 and 2021 have been anything but normal. So we decided it was time to add to our family.

I would like to introduce everyone to Dobby!

Now this guy has been amazing. Not only is he great at cuddling but he loves to go on walks. Since he is still a young pup we aren’t walking very far but I have high hopes of him loving to hike with the family. I never knew how much you much love you could give and receive to a precious pup. He has been our sunshine during these crazy times. It doesn’t matter what’s happening in the world he will great you with his tail wagging and cover you in kisses.

As well as getting more active I am slowly getting my eating back on track. And with moving more and eating better the scale has started moving downwards again.

I’m pretty sure the next few blogs will be scattered but I am a little rusty but miss this outlet. Chat soon!
