June, hot days and hotter days to come! A perfect time to make an easy strawberry salad for those hot days! Strawberries are of abundance in June, since it is strawberry picking month. Because they are in abundance, also means there are super great deals at the super markets.
Potato skins are pretty popular as appetizers at restaurants. Yet, I have never had one at a restaurant. For some reason they don't look as good as making them homemade. My husband and I challenged ourselves to just eating seafood for 2 weeks. Meaning no meat of any kind. I make my potato skins with bacon, therefore, I decided to make appetizer cajun shrimp potato skins since bacon was not an option this time.
Summer is officially here in just a couple of weeks! It is already hot with temperatures in the 90s here in Massachusetts. We get the really humid summers with no breeze. However, there is plenty to do here. We have the beaches, mountains and the famous Cape Cod everyone goes to during the summer! Here are 5 Summer Activities to do with Your Kids!
It's the end of the school year and you are thinking of what to get for your child's teacher. I remember the preschool years there was no room parent and I would buy for all teachers that worked with my children. Now that they are in elementary school it is custom for the assigned room parent to ask for $5-10 dollars (you can ask for $10-20) donation to get a class gift. Some parents send in a little more. This year I am the room parent for my older son's class and I did just that. Not everyone can donate and so the gift is from all the students, regardless of who donated. My son's class has an assistant teacher and a paraprofessional that help out in class. Therefore, I collected for all 3 teachers. Here are some end of the year class teacher gift ideas.
Avocados are so creamy and full of healthy fats. I haven't made avocado dressing with cilantro and lime in a while. I serve it many different ways. However, this morning I really wanted avocado dressing for breakfast. It only takes 5 minutes to make and my avocados were already ripe. Why not! Avocados are especially great to have when you want a filling meal. Many times I have eggs and avocado for breakfast with fruit. I don't care to have toast with eggs most of the time.
Father's Days is just around the corner. Gift giving is not always easy as my husband is SUPER PICKY. He likes something today and tomorrow he will return because he doesn't like the shirt, etc. I ordered my husband his father's day gift on Amazon and it arrived early. He was waiting on something from Amazon and thought the box that arrived was his item. However, it was his Father's day gift he opened! Therefore, I can give you a review of his gift. Here is a great father's day gift for the athlete, the recoverfun mini!
Pineapple is such a delicious fruit! When I was pregnant with my youngest, I only had fruit cravings. With pineapple being one of them. I remember eating a whole pineapple as my meal! Funny how pregnancy makes you crave certain things. Now that summer is almost officially here, what better way to grill pineapple in just 5 minutes on a hot day!
