Fall colds have hit us big time this year! I swear the kids’ noses have been running for a month already!
We also had a garage sale a couple weeks ago and my husband asked if I wanted to get rid of our changing pad covers along with the changing pad and table. I quickly replied, “no way!” I use those things for more than just the changing pad! I especially wasn’t getting rid of them while we’re still dealing with constantly running noses!
Last time for my Sunday Shortcut, I shared one of our favorite meals to keep the kids busy and appeal to everyone – make-your-own flatbread pizzas – this shortcut is a perfect follow-up…
Having two little ones 16 months apart, I’ve cut a lot of food into bite-size pieces. What is the quickest and easiest way to cut food for little ones? It’s something we all have in our house and it’s a lifesaver!
For today’s Sunday Shortcut, I’m sharing a go-to meal that I love for so many reasons:
It keeps the kids entertained and involved during meal prep
It’s a great way to use up leftovers
You can use anything you have on hand
Helps get the kiddos to eat their veggies
Quick and Easy
A big hit with the whole family
We love this meal! I plan it for anytime that I have leftover veggies to use up. Instead of having little ones trying to get my attention while cooking, they help prepare their own dinner, and they always gobble it all up!
Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful Dads, grandpas, Papa, Step-Dads, big brothers, single moms, etc. out there!
This Sunday Shortcut is a little late because this Momma made a big ol’ breakfast and completely embraced that Hubby was in a productive mood this Father’s Day. A lot was accomplished this morning, so your shortcut is arriving late afternoon.
I had to mail out a letter today to request a name change from my credit card company who just can’t seem to get it right. They sent me the form to fill out with no envelope for sending it back. This kind of mail, along with bills that don’t come with an envelope make me happy I save our heaps of junk mail that arrive all week.
We each have the little things we do each day to make our lives just a bit easier. Most, we take for granted and just do, but I’m going to share a small thing -or shortcuts I take to make things easier – each Sunday!
I’m starting out with this tip because we were at the Mall of America yesterday and, due to a lack of groceries, I didn’t have much on hand for portable, healthy snacks.
I would imagine this tip isn’t exclusive to the Mall of America. You just have to think outside the box when you are out and about and could use some healthy snack options.
So, without further ado, here is the first Sunday Shortcut:
How to find healthy food at the Mall of America (and anywhere)
