Not everything happens in the kitchen! A little recap of what’s going on in my life beyond all the food.
My son plays varsity tennis for his high school and it’s honestly the most cohesive sports team he’s ever been a part of. Between the coaching and a group of parents that are really involved and supportive, these past four years have been pretty awesome.
When the boys have a home match, parents rotate bringing a meal to the courts so the boys and coaches can eat between their matches. This past week was my turn (so happy it was finally sunny). As you can see from the picture, meatball sandwiches were on my menu. I find it’s really easy to bring a couple of slow cookers full of meatballs in marinara sauce and layered with mozzarella cheese. The meatballs easily stay warm and everyone can build their own sandwich when they are able to eat.
As you can imagine, these sandwiches go over over quite well with sixteen hungry boys. The current record is six sandwiches during a tennis match by one person. They can eat!
Cooking Tip: If you want to keep fruit from turning brown /oxidizing after cutting, but don’t want the taste of lemon juice, use a lemon-lime soda like Sprite or 7-Up. Pour a small amount over the cut fruit and toss to coat. It works great and has a light flavor. Perfect for all those spring and summer fruit salads coming up.
When your neighbors bring over a young Dogwood Tree to plant in memory of your dog that has passed away. How nice is that?
Forget galaxy desserts, unicorn cakes have taken over the planet. And I want one.
What’s new this week? My favorite lunch, I’m obsessed. A low carb meal you are going to make again and again. A new slow cooker video that is going to make dinner so much easier, not to mention delicious.
Ordering Coffee Tip: Order your iced coffee and ask for light ice, ice on the side, OR no ice at all (and fill up once you arrive to your office). You are going to get so much more coffee this way!
Ladies, THIS is the perfect party game.
Can dessert inspire a dress? Sure it can, and it’s on sale too.
This dress looks super cute with new white tennies. It’s so comfortable too.
How cute is this balloon set for a bachelorette, bridal or wedding party?
I need this cake in my life.
Have you made these cookies yet? They are perfect for spring.
I would eat the whole batch!
I’m headed to Boston this week, send me all your recommendations!
Until next time…
