What’s for dinner?!

Being in the kitchen makes me so happy. I love cooking and baking for my family. Sometimes breakfast is rushed, lunch is usually just the boys sitting together or grabbing bites while they run around and play, but dinner, dinner is when we all are sitting together and talk about our day.

Dinner might actually be my favorite part of the day. L usually starts us off by saying he didn’t take a bite of anything yet while he’s talking with his mouth full and then he says Grace, with one of the preschool prayers he’s learned this year. We take this time to talk about our day, our highs and lows, and maybe what some fun plans ahead might be.

Dinner is special to me. To all of us.

Here is what is planned for this week. It might not be the healthiest week I’ve ever planned, but a few of these were by request .

3/10-3/15

Sunday: Tater Tot Casserole- this is my Grandma’s recipe that my husband and boys just love! I love that she’s shared so many yummy recipes with me!

Monday: Pizza Quesadillas- pick your own insides! Served with salad

Tuesday: Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo (using chickpea noodles)

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Greek Chicken (H and I LOVE olives!)

Thursday: Baked Ziti with spinach and spicy Italian sausage (or ground pork if I can’t find spicy without fennel…I HATE fennel!)

Friday: We are going to find ourselves a Fish Fry. If you have suggestions for a great fish fry in the Twin Cities let me know!

Saturday: Lazy Pierogies served with Chicken and salad. Lazy Pierogies are jumbo shells stuffed with mashed potatoes and onions and sprinkled with some cheese before baking 🙂

If you make any of the recipes in my dinner plans please share photos! I’d love to see!

Enjoy!

Bachman’s

GUYS!!! I was invited to Bachman’s for a sneak peek event at Bachman’s Holiday Idea House! I was able to bring a plus one and I brought my mother in law since she has been telling me about Bachman’s since we moved here (for about 9 months now) that I had to go to this place and how amazing it is!

So the Holiday Idea House was incredible! I felt like I walked into my Aunt Karen’s house (she’s an incredible decorator!) and just made me so happy! I’m all about Thanksgiving, it’s my favorite holiday, but Bachman’s gave me such Christmas cheer!

The House is open to the public today, November 8 and is open until December 16.

This was just one of many rooms!!!

We also were able to explore the rest of Bachman’s and even had some delicious treats from the cafe located there too!

The best part about the house was that you could go to the store and buy anything and everything that you loved inside the house! (This could be dangerous!!!)

I found the most magical trees all lit and ready for Santa!

Since I was there for a special event we were able to make these super cute ornaments too!

I honestly can’t wait to go back to Bachman’s to shop for the holiday season so I can decorate my new home for Christmas!

Below are the list of events coming up a Bachman’s. I know we are excited to attend a few of them!
