Hi guys!

Can we talk about the stress of being in charge of team snacks?

I only sign up for weeks waaaay into the season so I have time to see what everyone else brings. I mean, I definitely don’t want to be the mom that shows up with something lame and gets made fun of by a bunch of 12 year old boys for the rest of the season.

My plan right now is to bring a couple batches of these no bake bars made with Honey Nut Cheerios because they’re too delicious for the kids to be mad at!

Happy Monday, y’all!

How was the weekend? We did Christmas on Saturday because I gave my ex the holidays this year. Santa came and all that.

So I ate cookies literally all weekend and now I think I need to go on a detox for the next month and a half.

Also, super excited to put all the Christmas decorations away the second I hand the kids over to their dad.

Anyway, our Christmas was fabulous. As you know, this was the first one since the divorce and I had a moment of  “Whoa, I actually pulled this off all by myself” as I watched the kiddos open their gifts.

You guys.

I want you all to be proud of me. Not only do I have decorations up, I’ve even started buying presents.

This is a big deal because up until about 3 days ago, my kids were only getting donations to my favorite charities in their name.

I have had quite the year.

At some point in the near future, I’ve got to A) figure out where to move and B) move myself, 3 kids, 3 dogs, and all our stuff.

So I am very much anti-stuff right now. I don’t want to bring anything else into the house that I will then have to store and then move. I just cannot handle anything else.

But yeah, I gave in and bought them a few things and they’ll be happy with what they get, dangit.

Monster Trail Mix - the ultimate roadtrip snack mix! Pretzels, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, raisins, peanuts, and M&Ms!

Are you loving summer?

I’m loving summer. This has been the best summer of my life and we’re only a few weeks in. My kids are all at really good ages for outdoorsy things right now and we’re just really loving everything central Texas has to offer.

Plus, we’re counting down the days to our next roadtrip!

Wait. Another roadtrip with 3 boys and a dog?

Amanda, are you crazy?

Maybe.

January is a hard month to be a food blogger. I mean, the last few months have all had a theme. September was football, October was pumpkin & Halloween, November was Thanksgiving, and December was Christmas.

But there’s nothing in January.

I’m posting healthy/paleo stuff because I hear it’s popular around this time of year but every time I do, someone unsubscribes and uses the “content not relevant” option. 

Which then causes a conversation with my husband that goes something like this: “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?! Are they saying that my content is not relevant to THEIR life? Or are they saying I’m not relevant? Am I old? Am I too old for the internet?!” 

And my husband just looks at me. Because how do you even respond to that?

So I made Salted Nut Roll Bars. It’s always a good time for marshmallows and peanut butter and Rice Krispies, right?

I love these kinds of bars. You’ve got the cakey bottom (made from boxed mix so super easy!) and then a marshmallow middle, all topped with crunchy goodness coated in peanut butter. It’s all my fave flavors with all kinds of fun texture. They are delicious.
