The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

We took a day trip to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with Lily’s Girl Scout troop. We hadn’t been in a few years, so I was excited to come back. I love history and science. The kids love the hands on.

I didn’t see the current exhibits online before we got there, so I was surprised to seeย The Power of Children: Making a Difference featuring Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White.

My 1st Frittata

I had never made a frittata.

It didn’t seem too terribly hard, as I’ve made quiche before. I decided to give it a shot to see how the family would like it for dinner.

I made a Spinach Artichoke Frittata because everyone in our house seems to love spinach artichoke dip. Continue reading

Meal Planning

I have had the hardest time getting back into the kitchen to make dinner. I have tons of new gadgets from Christmas and a few things that I’ve bought. None of it has motivated me to start planning meals and cooking again. I don’t wanna rely on a food/meal delivery service all the time. Continue reading

Pork & Thai Basil Stir-Fry

Pork & Thai Basil Stir-Fry
with Bok Choy, Sugar Snap Peas, Yellow Squash, Carrots
and Basmati Rice

I haven’t been cooking as much as I’d like to. Getting back into the routine of school, after-school activities, and work, has really taken a toll on the goals I’ve set for myself.

This was a simple stove-top meal. I used pre-made sauce to make it go a little faster. Continue reading

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

So much changes over the course of a year. 2017 was no exception. Not only was it a fresh start from 2016, but it ushered in a lot of change and excitement for our family.

Girl Scout Cookie season started. The beginning of the longest two months ever. I love the cookies, but I’m not sad when it ends in March.

Lily got an MRI on her ankle. She has Osteochondritis, but we didn’t know the extent until after the MRI.

I celebrated 10 years at work. I’ve been working with the same company for 10 years. That used to be the norm, but it isn’t so commonplace anymore. I love the girls I work with and adore our clientele. Continue reading

The Chives!

Of the four meals that I received from Plated, 2 had fresh chives. I was pretty stoked because I typically use freeze-dried chives because they’re something that I just have in the spice cabinet.

These are the chives from theย Roasted Chicken au Jus. They we salvageable. I ended up losing about half of the chives, but moved on.

I know that this is a fresh item, which is shipped. Sometimes, depending on the season, fresh items get funky faster. Blah, blah, blah.

Whatever. I found a way to make it work. Everyone was happy. There were chives in the dish.
