Pineapple Upside Down Muffins - easy, kid-approved breakfast recipe! Delicious muffins filled with crushed pineapple and topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar and a maraschino cherry!

I’m doing that thing again where I refuse to buy cereal because we’ve had this giant Sam’s Club sized box of instant oatmeal in the pantry for, like, 3 months now and I. Want. It. Gone.

I’m told that there are people in this world that enjoy oatmeal and happily eat it but my children and I are not those people.

Why’d you buy 52 packs of oatmeal, Amanda, if you guys don’t eat oatmeal?

I don’t know, y’all. I black out in Sam’s the second I start thinking about getting a slice of pizza and I don’t even realize I have the oatmeal until I’m already out the door and flinging boxes into the Jeep.

No, this isn’t the first time we’ve ended up with the oatmeal.

Hey guys, how was the long weekend?

I did nothing all weekend. And by nothing I mean that I decided to rewatch Jane the Virgin and somehow made it through 2 1/2 season in 3 days.

Granted, I tend to just leave it on and walk away for hours at a time but still.

I always go back to that show when I’m super stressed because it’s funny and ridiculous and I just love it.

I did escape to my favorite trail with the husky (Good Water Loop in Georgetown) because I just really needed it to not see another human for a few hours.

I listened to a couple of my favorite podcasts, fell in the mud twice, and then stood under the waterfall before doing the 3 miles back to the car in wet shoes.

It was exactly what I needed.

Okay guys, it’s the first day back in real life for us. The kids have to go to school. I have to pretend like I’m cleaning the house all day and not watching CNN while I lay in bed. The usual.

My kids actually just got back from their dad’s house on Sunday night – they were gone for, like, 10 or 11 days. I didn’t go to the grocery store a single time they were gone. Our fridge is bare. Like, totally bare.

There’s literally just leftover pho, half a carton of cashew milk, and 2 limes.

And if you know me at all you know there’s not a chance in heck that I’m going to the grocery store with all 3 boys.

No. Nope. Not happening ever.

So I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, cookies for lunchboxes, and these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for breakfast.

Cranberry Pecan Muffins

Heeeey guys! I made us muffins for breakfast!

Are you a cranberry person? I feel like I became a cranberry person this year. Almost every post I’ve put up in the last month has had cranberries in it. And I’ve never cared about cranberries before. I still have a few bags in the freezer though so expect a couple more posts.

And then when I run out of those, we’ll move onto dried cranberries and cranberry juice!

No?

Two pumpkin recipes this week!

Is it too much pumpkin?

I still have many cans of pumpkin in my pantry so. Prepare yourselves.

Anyway, let’s talk about making mornings easier today.

Because I get my kids out of bed at 6:15 and we’re (trying very hard to be) out the door at 6:55.

Three kids.

That’s 6 shoes that inexplicitly go missing in the middle of the night. Every single night. How does this happen? Why is one shoe outside if the other is under the bed?

I. Don’t. Understand. It.

Tell me I’m not alone. Tell me you have also found yourself sneaking into the neighbor’s garage at 7 am because your kid swears he left his shoes there.
