pantry and snack organizer

Thanks to Elizabeth on my facebook fan page for sending this link from Real Simple about setting up “snack” boxes in the fridge and pantry. “I needed to share this! Thought this might be an idea to be sort of a “bridge” in the DOR between childhood in adolescence as kids get older – i.e. bridge between caregiver choosing/making snacks and adolescent being completely autonomous in choosing her snacks – (i.e. in older elementary aged – help yourself...

Posted by on Jan 13, 2012 in Blog Posts | 12 comments

It seems like every website that talks about getting family dinner on the table talks about menu planning, and with good reason. It is hard. For me it is the part I least enjoy of the process of getting food on the table. I have tried to make myself do it in nice organized ways, I have tried print-outs, read books, and it doesn’t work for me. I read a book that even had menu planning based on ethnic cuisine.

I’m not much of a shopper for enjoyment, but I did buy one thing while I was in France. I found these little boiled egg spoons in a home-goods shop. They are made in Italy, plastic, not expensive and I just LOVE the colors. We eat boiled eggs fairly often, but I also enjoy using them with yogurt etc. They make me happy. M likes to choose her color and thinks they are pretty too. I think these would be great baby food spoons, but we’re beyond that now… We also use them for jam...

Lovin’ my new griddle, do you griddle?

Posted by on May 27, 2010 in Blog Posts |

OK, here’s my griddle. Never grew up with one, but I love it!! I can make two McMommy sandwiches at once, or 3 grilled cheese and not have to have 3 pans going, or pancakes in two batches instead of five! My best recent kitchen addition… Anything that I use and saves time is a big bonus when it comes to feeding a family for years to come! Do you...
