10 Amazing Easy Dinners


We all know how much I love a good “cheat night” meal! For those of you who aren’t regulars around here let me explain! I usually love to cook big family dinners from semi-scratch. As a busy mom to two with 4 jobs, however, doing it every night is just not realistic! Rather than hitting up the drive through, however, most of the time I resort to my favorite meals that I can throw together so quickly and easily it doesn’t even feel like cooking! Here’s a list of my 10 favorites!

Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Keep Momming

Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

You know that I’m a big advocate of giving Zero Clutter Gifts! I also love receiving them! When given the choice of what my birthday present will be–I’ll choose an “experience” gift rather than a physcial one nine times out of ten! That’s why for the last few years my birthday presents have included things like going and seeing How To Train Your Dragon Live in 2012, and spending the day with hubby at Six Flags last year. This year was no different, and I couldn’t wait to scheme up how we’d celebrate!

((So yeah–for the 2 guy readers who are out there and randomly stumbled across this blog post–this is your cue to run away plugging your ears screaming. At least that’s how my husband responds to the words “feminine care” or if any of the other above “period” words come up. I’m just saying–you’ve been warned.))
