My Eats, Plus Facebook Giveaway!

Finally Friday!

We often joke with my parents that "everyday is a Saturday" to them, as they are both retired and often forget what day it is.  I have to say I'm not much better lately.  Being off on maternity leave (only 2+ weeks left...boo), makes me forget what day it is most of the time.

When I woke up this morning, I was a little more excited as we got a babysitter for the little man tonight, so the husband and I can go to dinner and do some shopping.  Well, it's kinda a "date", the little miss is coming with us, but she doesn't throw food on the floor in restaurants or yell at the top of her lungs.

She really is a dream baby.

So it's Mexican for us tonight, a little furniture shopping and a grocery haul.  It's amazing how times have changed when a date used to consist of dinner, parties on the college "hill", and late night binges of pizza at 2 a.m.

Changing subjects - my food blog basically consists of recipes, while many other food blogs consist of daily eats, showcasing each and every meal they consume. I could never get the hang of that, too much picture taking for me.  I do love to read those types of blogs, but just couldn't do it myself.

But to honor those, I thought I'd show you what some of my daily lunches and snacks have been including lately.  When you have two little ones, I'm lucky to get lunch some days, so forgive me if they seem boring.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Mint Cookies - recipe on my Facebook page!
Typical lunch - turkey, cheese, mustard on english muffin, apple slices
Homemade egg mcmuffin
Last but certainly not least - a GIVEAWAY!!!

Head on over to Sweet & Savory's Facebook page and enter to win a coupon for a FREE Organic Valley product and a copy of the Earth Dinner book.  A great guide to eating healthy, along with tons of quotes, tidbits, and just great information to make you think twice about where your food comes from.

All you have to do is become a fan and comment on my post - couldn't be simpler!  I'll announce the random winner on Sunday.

Have a fabulous weekend y'all!

  1. I know what you mean about not knowing what day it is. True story!

    Hope you enjoy your "date" night!

  2. I'm getting a better idea of the sacrifices all parents make for their children. Your lunches look pretty good. I find myself eating out of containers these days because I am so hungry and short on time, and the little one takes priority.

  3. Enjoy your date night!
