Weekly Roundup

(This post contains affiliate links)

Hi all!!!! Long time no see!!!

I've been hanging out a ton on my facebook page, but through a recent poll, I learned that a lot of you don't hang out on FB as much as IG or on blogs so I APOLOGIZE! I didn't mean to abandon you! 

I thought that I would put together a round up the highlights of our week on the facebook page so that none of you are missing out. And in the future....I'll work on hanging out more here too. (-;

So to catch you up...I've been working to share more of what I've been doing in the kitchen as I feed the fam (apparently they expect to eat EVERY DAY), deals that benefit #momlife, and of course...just the usual craziness of life.

So for starters...this green smoothie recipe:
1 avocado

1 banana

as much kale as you can fit...in the pic it's packed down as much as possible (sometimes I'll do spinach if I'm out of kale)

a large handful of frozen blueberries
a large handful of frozen strawberries
a generous sprinkling of chia seeds
water (until it's to the desired consistency...usually about 1 to 1 1/2 cups)

If I have an apple I might add that too. And I'll often add some vanilla protein powder (although this does slightly alter the taste).
Blend...and done.
 This Italian Beef Recipe:
1 cup Sprite (or I used ginger ale today)
1 pkg brown gravy mix
1 pkg Italian dressing seasoning
1 beef roast

(depending how big your roast is...you can double this if you want to keep it pretty saucy. Once the roast starts talking back with lots of witty sarcasm in response to your questions...you know it's saucy enough.)
Mix. Pour over Beef Roast in crockpot. Wait for your mind to be BLOWN.
Cook until you can shred the meat with two forks

Experimenting with a new Cinnamon roll recipe (Spoiler alert...LOVED IT)

And sharing once again, my FAVORITE kid muffin recipe

The following kickin' #momlife deals (click description for link):


2. This sound machine that was delivered in practically 30 seconds and is already helping Addison sleep better WHOOHOOOO!. (the lightning deal is over, but seriously I would still pay current price because it is WONDERFUL. #teamsleep)




And the craziness of life....

This picture of Morgan:
Hey guys...can anyone help me find Morgan? I told her it was time to stop playing and come inside and suddenly she disappeared!!!!!!? #being2

This picture of Addison, who has apparently turned 16 overnight:

And last, but not least, we had a crazy interesting conversation about what everyone is paying for groceries in different locations around the world. I learned so much from this conversation! (Conversation link here)

So yeah...that's my random list! I've been enjoying sharing a bit of my cooking love. 

But enough about me. How have YOU been???
