Easy Thanksgiving Turkey Meatloaf
Well, I’m almost done my Christmas shopping!
I know we’re not even to Thanksgiving yet, but I gotta stay on top of these kinds of things or else before we know it, Christmas will come and go and I’ll have a third child in my arms. 47 days until Christmas, 74 days until Gord and I become outnumbers with them kiddos.
Tis the season!
And, just so were clear, ‘almost done my Christmas shopping’ means I have every Christmas gift on my amazon wish list. All I have to do is click ‘buy’. Buuuut, my daughter is changing her Christmas list daily, so I’m waiting until something sticks and she mentions it more than once. She did say she wanted an iPhone more than once, but lets be honest: that’s never going to happen.
“But I could text you Mommy!”
“I could watch Netflix in my room, Mommy!”
“I wouldn’t have to share the iPad with Blake, Mommy!”
This girl!!! I did not expect this level of persistence from my 6 year old.
Stovetop Tuna Noodle Casserole
Tuna casserole!! Either you love it or hate it. My little family is on the love-it-like-crazy-I-will-fight-you-for-the-leftovers side.
My kids cleared their plates and then went in for seconds! And, that basically never happens.
Add a few Ruffles chips on top and suddenly it’s the best dinner ever.
I made this quick stove-top version the other day and by george I liked it even more than the kind you bake in the oven. It’s faster, easier, and uses pretty simple ingredients. I’m talkin’ about you, frozen vegetables.
Loaded Smashed Potatoes
Hello, friends! Happy Friday
Today, I’m writing this post from my in-laws house. Brooke had yesterday and today off of school because of parent teacher conferences so we decided to get the heck out of town and visit Grandma and Grandpa Brennan.
As I type, my husband and his Dad are watching an Oregon football game and I am nearly dying inside because of boredom.
I just cannot for the life of me get into football. No matter how much I try, by the second quarter I usually end up online shopping browsing Pinterest for football food.
Do these smashed loaded potatoes qualify as football food? I’d like to think so. They’re like potato skins that aren’t hollowed out but still topped with all the yummy goodies you’d typically find within a potato skin.
