Eat outside!

One of my favourite things about this time of year is everything can be done outside. Like, eating! And that means less clean up inside. Whether a warm day like today or a rainy day, we have options to eat outside if we want! The great big carport makes that possible. So the girls get... Continue Reading →

Freezer Meals

It's time, to make freezer meals! A few times a year I make a bunch of freezer meals for when we're busy (or lazy). Plus with the baby coming, it makes a lot of sense to have a few extras. Here are a bunch of recipes I'm going to try. Meat: Frozen Burritos - Not Your... Continue Reading →

But it’s hard!

I've been working with Martin to get him to start using utensils. We follow baby-led feeding with the kiddos so they don't get purees just food they can pick up and feed them-self as soon as they start. Yes, it makes a big mess (Django loves it).

March Dinner Planning

I finished last week my dinner planning for this month. A few things I learned from the first two months of 2018. Don't underestimate the need for leftover days! Which is amazing, because it's less cooking for me, and less waste! Don't try too many new things, the kids don't seem to mind, but it's... Continue Reading →

New neigbhourhood boundaries?

Let's not play pretend, we are all parenting and living in a very different world then we grew up in. Streetlights don't mean it's time to come in and who knows their neighbour all the way down the street? We are very lucky, we have some great neighbours on our street, that know our names...
