happy easter

well folks, today will start a series of “catch up” blog posts of images i’ve taken for a non-existent blog. 

yes, that is a gigantic Reese’s peanut butter egg that the Easter bunny found at target. and, Despicable Me, because what says Easter like minions?

next, we have ryan’s and my favorite Easter gummies from Trader Joe’s. they deserve a spot for being so delicious and…squishy.

and finally, a happy Easter from our egg hunting menagerie :)

mini meatloaf night


so, i love to cook. i’ll be sharing many recipes as this blog continues. 

the other night we had mini meatloaves and smashed potatoes with broccoli. delicious and easy. the “hardest” part was boiling up the potatoes in water.

ryan review: “mvpaoseiruoimbpoaiser—is there more?”  it’s a sneaky way to get kids (and men) to eat lots of broccoli—i always add more veg and less potatoes :)

here’s a link for the mash:
