Saturday Morning Cereals - Cap'n Crunch's Peanut Butter Crunch - National Peanut Butter Day - January 24th

Today is National Peanut Butter Day! Peanut Butter is pretty delicious and when I saw that January 24th was National Peanut Butter Day, I knew we were going to need to do something special. In our quest to try all the different Captain Crunch Cereals available we've tried quite a few obscure flavors like Cotton Candy Crunch, Chocolatey Berry Crunch, and Sprinkled Donut Crunch. We still needed to taste the commonly available Peanut Butter Crunch. 

And to go with it, we're making our own Peanut Butter Sandwiches, but more on that after the jump.

Breakfast for dinner

Tonight we're having another delicious breakfast for dinner. Theresa told me that it was all her favorite breakfast foods tonight in one place! There's bagels and cream cheese, hash browns, bacon, and eggs, so that she can make a breakfast burrito!

Ian Makes - Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pop

After the kids get done with school, they're free to play, read, exercise, or come up with other interesting things. Without telling us why, Ian asked us to pick up some strawberries from the grocery store for him. One afternoon he asked for them and we finally got to see what he was up to. He wanted to make a Strawberry Juice Popsicle! Well after juicing 3 large strawberries and having about a centimeter of juice in the medicine cup, Theresa suggested he turn it into a strawberry lemonade popsicle instead. He enthusiastically agreed!

Christmas Day Pt2

Merry Christmas 2021! After a delicious breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls, it was time to head back to the living room and continue opening presents. 
Aubrey organized this one, and the kids have been doing a really good job keeping it a secret for the last few weeks.

National Popcorn Day - Tasting Popcorn M&Ms and making chocolate covered popcorn - January 19th

Happy National Popcorn Day! I've been holding on to these Chocolate Popcorn M&Ms for a while now, and I think this is the perfect opportunity to taste them. 

And if we're going to taste something with a particular flavor, more often than not, we're also going to be making something with that flavor to go along with it. In this case, chocolate popcorn!
I love that the M&Ms are the same colors as the chocolate popcorn we made. White popcorn, Yellow buttery goodness, and Dark Brown chocolate drizzle.

Pizza at Home - Alli makes Tomato Pie pizza

Happy Sunday! Today we're making a pizza special for Alli. Whenever I ask about toppings for pizza, she's been asking for the same thing for a long time. Just crust and sauce! 
I've got the perfect pizza for you then! It's called a tomato pie pizza! Also known as red bread, strip pizza, church pizza, or even cold pizza, because often this pizza is served at room temperature or even chilled!
