Holiday Ideas

October 18, 2012

We used to be a 3-meal a day family, plus a snack or two if anyone got hungry.  Well, apparently someone didn’t get that memo… Hiking with her snack cup. Knack knack knack – our favorite word these days.  When we first introduced Summer to solids, I tried to sit down with her for at [...]

A quick meal idea for you.  Just ate this for lunch myself. Inspired by Charlotte’s Cowboy Groats.
