what's cooking

(I make this whenever I have a little bit of leftovers from here and there that's not enough for a full meal. On this day it was left over broccoli and some sausage.)

beef stew
(I love crockpot meals, easy to make and easy to clean. Unfortunately, I haven't found a crockpot recipe that my kids are crazy about.)

green beans sauteed with garlic
(This is one of my kids' favorite so you'll see this dish a lot while it's in season.
You really can't go wrong when you sauté any vegetables with garlic, according to my dad.)

macaroni with sausage and bell peppers

(I've been trying out different pancake mixes lately. So far they all taste about the same, but this one does cook faster and fluffier.)

breakfast hot pockets using my bread maker for the dough

hot dogs on Hawaiian hot dog buns
(We love the Hawaiian rolls so when I saw that they make hot dog buns as well, I had to try it out. It was good! We will definitely be getting this again!)

What's been cooking with you?

random quotes...

Here are some random quotes that I came across lately. Some are humorous and some that just make you go, uh huh... 

...but I like Cheerios ;)

I always admire those people who can come back with witty comebacks right away because this happens to me A LOT.  Or when I think I've finally got it with quick witty comebacks, it always sounds ridiculous when I say it out loud. It sounded better in my head.


This is my motto when we go on vacation!


This is so true in our family. I need this sign in my kitchen. (Do not even try to talk to me before my morning cup of coffee :) )

I need to keep this in mind whenever I receive meeting requests at work :)


I really like this one.


This one is hilarious. 


This is easier said than done especially with social media nudging at you all the time. It's something that I have to keep in mind.

Summer Time Treats: snow cones

It's starting to feel a lot like summer around here, which means hot, hot, hot, and humid. 
One of our favorite snacks after playing outside is snow cones! 

The kids are anxiously waiting for their snow cones by the snow cone machine.

Here they are enjoying their afternoon treats. You don't have to tell them twice to dig in.

I like mine with sweetened condensed milk and some fruit. It reminds me a little bit of the shaved ice found throughout Asia. I especially love the ones with the red beans and grass jelly. My kids are not that crazy about pineapples, so more pineapples for me.

What are some of your summer time treats?
