You know when you feel so successful because you wake up Monday morning, make it to your 7:40 appointment on time, survive getting 57 vials of blood drawn, and then even manage to get your car’s oil changed? All before 10 am?
And you tweet 15 times about HOW ADULT you are and now you’re killing Monday?
And then you go home, change into your PJs, and sleep until you have to pick your kids up from school?
My life, yesterday.
Thankfully, I had this Chicken Chili Mac and Cheese in the fridge so I didn’t have to worry about cooking dinner.
I don’t know what possessed me to make this. The whole time I was cooking it, I was thinking, “The kids are never going to eat this.”
“Tomatoes? NOPE. Green chiles? NOPE.”
They loved it! Asked for more. Yesterday I gave them the option between this and Trader Joe’s orange chicken and they picked this!
Seriously! Tomatoes and all!

I hope you had a relaxing and/or exciting weekend and hopefully Monday won’t be too bad to you. But just in case, I made us some Blackberry Pineapple Mojitos.
These are really, really easy to make. You just use the handle of a wooden spoon to mash a bunch of blackberries, pineapple, and mint together and then dump in some rum, lime juice, and sparkling water. Throw some ice in and top it with a bunch of mint so it looks fancy. Done.
Happy almost weekend! Let’s celebrate with sprinkles!
You guys, I’m obsessed with Funfetti right now. I can’t get enough. I’ve made cookies, cupcakes, bars, everything in the past few weeks. The sprinkles just make me so happy!
I stock up on all my favorite Pillsbury cake mixes and frosting every time I’m at Walmart. They’re perfect to have in your pantry for quick afterschool treats that the kids can help make! Mine especially love decorating with sprinkles which is why I chose to use Funfetti for these cookies. I did the baking, they did the frosting and sprinkling!
It was the perfect way to #MixUpAMoment after a long day at school!
These cookies couldn’t be simpler. You just need the Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix, oil, and eggs! And the Pillsbury Funfetti frosting, of course. They bake for less than 10 minutes and then you can decorate them however you like!
They are so delicious and so fun to look at it! I can’t get enough.
If you’re obsessed with Funfetti like me, you have to try them!
I’ll be sharing a cute way to jazz up Pillsbury brownie mixes later this month so make sure you check back for that!
