Eating Our Way Through Savannah

Last Sunday, Scott and I were able to take a little trip away to Savannah, just the two of us!  Scott visits Savannah several times a year for work, and once a year or so, I get the opportunity to tag along.  Savannah is one of our very favorite cities, and we had a really wonderful trip.  AS I was looking back through my pictures, though, it seems like I tagged along just for the food, haha!  But, truth is,[Read more]

Easter Dinner Menu

We had a pretty big Easter last year, but this year we are keeping it simple just the five of us!  We have a big Easter Egg Hunt and community day of service with our church on Saturday, church on Sunday morning (after seeing what the Easter Bunny brought, of course), and our traditional Easter dinner early Sunday afternoon. Since we had a bunch of family in town last year, we had a pretty big dinner spread.  But since it’s[Read more]

The Ultimate Chopped Salad

Like I posted last Friday, as the weather gets warmer, I crave lighter, fresher dinners.  And since we spend several nights a week at the baseball field, or at church, or on the soccer field, not only do I want something light and fresh, but also quick and easy!  And it’s hard to get easier than a nice, big NO-COOK salad.  For those nights that we either have very little time between dinner time and leaving for the ball fields[Read more]

Kid-Free Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and that you were able to enjoy some beeeee-youtiful weather like we did.  The kids had a big time with their Nana and Pop, which allowed for Scott and I to have a fun weekend on our own at home!  Here’s a bit of a recap of our weekend… Ben had another baseball game Friday night, and it was a great spring evening!  He is loving baseball, and gets better every single[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful spring weekend.  We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and took advantage of the time outside! Ben had a baseball game Friday night, and it was precious, as always.  Those little boys, in their sweet little uniforms, are just the cutest thing ever.  I like how our league does it- they pitch once to the boys and if it doesn’t result in a hit (99% of the time it doesn’t), they[Read more]

Friday Favorites

I’m not sure I could be more excited that today is FRIDAY!  Maybe if it were next Friday (right before our Spring Break starts), but this is pretty good too.  Bennett has a baseball game tonight and we have the girls’ soccer games Saturday morning, and then it’s wide open.  Sadly the house is a wreck and I have PILES of laundry today, but still–WEEKEND! With the weather finally warming up a bit, I have been craving lighter meals for dinners.  I[Read more]

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

I love a good frivolous celebration, and so Pi Day last week was the perfect excuse to have a sweet treat after dinner to celebrate a made-up holiday!  I wanted to make something very simple with very few ingredients, and this ice cream pie was perfect! As Ben and I walked into Kroger, I got the idea for the ice cream pie.  A pre-made pie crust filled with ice cream and a yummy topping would make for a super easy,[Read more]

Chattanooga Field Trip + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ours started out crazy and then slowed down considerably which was wonderful. My mom came into town on Thursday night to help with the kids so that I could go on an all-day field trip with Brantley and her FOCUS class.  Scott had an event all day Friday and was unable to take the other kids to school, so Bammy picked up the slack and then some!  I wanted to share[Read more]

Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

One of our very favorite side dishes is Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  When we ask Ben what he wants for dinner, his response is always the same– “Steak and Brussels Sprouts!”   When we grill during the fall and summer, we make them on almost a weekly basis, but they are really great with pork, chicken, fish- all year round (clearly, they’re our go-to side dish with steaks!).  And if you’ve never had brussels sprouts or are convinced that you[Read more]

Happy Birthday B’Mama and Weekly Meal Plan

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was pretty quiet on Saturday (full of laundry and bathroom cleaning :/), but Sunday we celebrated! Sunday was my grandmother’s 85th birthday!  So after church, we headed to Atlanta to celebrate with her, my mom, and a bunch of her retirement community friends for a little party! I was the first grandchild on my mom’s side of the family, and bestowed the lovely name- B’mama- upon my grandmother.  It stuck[Read more]
