This Weeks Delish!

Here it is Saturday, halfway through the afternoon, and I already feel like I’ve been up the entire day. It’s just been one of those mornings. I wish I could settle everyone down in the house for just one hour and everybody take a nice nap. Yeah right. The suns out and there is so much chaos in the air, it would take another 12+ hours for my daughter to willingly sleep. Oh well, I’ll just have to squash these emerging feelings of exhaustion with some more coffee and keep trucking.

We woke up at the crack of dawn to get the kids and ourselves ready for a little, mini photoshoot session that I signed my daughter up for. The independent photographer was holding 20 minute, $75 mini-shoots and I finally got a slot before they filled up! Of course, it was one of the early bird ones at 8:20am… but I got one none-the-less! However, we were late, couldn’t find the place, and then my daughter wouldn’t let go of my thigh to pose for these darn photos. I spent a ridiculous amount of time coaxing her out from under my skirt using every bribe in the book- ice cream, gummies, etc. She wasn’t budging. So darn stubborn. I had to let early people go before us so she would get more comfortable with the whole thing. Three mini-shoots later and she finally stepped into the staged area to pose. The next task was to get her to look at the darn camera. And just forget about smiling.

It was a long morning between the stress of being late, my daughter crying, and then the energy I had to expend, trying and failing to get her to smile. Oy. Long.

I used to LOVE Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies when I was a kid! I bet they are amazing homemade too…

This is going to sound silly, but I had no idea that fried ice cream was actually fried… haha go figure.

This Weeks Pick: Here comes the hardest part of the week- picking my favorite recipe. Hmmm, I think this week I will go with the Cranberry Cherry Chicken Wraps. They were really fun with the whole sweet-savory combo thing going on. Plus so easy! And healthy ; ) It’s a win-win all around.
