Hi guys!

I made cookies!

Because we are celebrating my kids going back to school after Spring Break!

We didn’t really do anything for Spring Break. It’s just been cold and blah and I haven’t wanted to go anywhere. We always go to the Waco Zoo on Spring Break, mostly because they have a Torchy’s up there and I like any excuse to get tacos. So we did that. And that’s it.

Zoo and tacos.

Wild Spring Break.

BF was standing over my shoulder while I was editing these pictures (because I move a stool to the kitchen island for computer work, instead of, you know, sitting at a desk) and I asked him if the melted green sprinkles right in the front of the photo looked unappetizing.

He said he didn’t even notice it until I mentioned it which means you probably didn’t either but now it’s all you’ll be able to see when you look at that picture.

Because my King Cake Bread Pudding is oozing green stuff.

And then there’s that creepy gold baby that I’ve somehow kept track of since we lived in Alabama. And we left Alabama  in 2011.

I’m a big fan of throwing out everything I own a couple times a year but somehow this creepy gold baby keeps making the cut.

Anyway.

It’s raining in Texas again.

Like, twice a year, it just starts raining in Texas and doesn’t stop for weeks.

Which means that I can’t stop at my favorite taco truck after soccer practice on Tuesday nights because soccer practice is canceled every Tuesday night and if you think I’m leaving my house if I don’t absolutely have to… no.

But I can make the most delicious nachos at home so Nacho Tuesday it is until Texas decides to stop raining.

Paleo Chicken Marsala Meatballs - paleo meatballs in a delicious creamy mushroom sauce. Serve over mashed cauliflower for the perfect paleo comfort food!

I started thinking about these meatballs the other day at the gym, about 3 minutes into my 2 hour workout.

The idea just popped into my head and I didn’t stop thinking about them the entire time and then had to stop at the grocery store on the way home for ingredients.

Because I needed meatballs covered in creamy mushroom sauce at 10 am.

I mean, who doesn’t love mashed cauliflower for breakfast? That’s normal, right?

I know that’s not even Valentine’s Day but I’m ready to talk about Easter.

What do you do with all those hard-boiled eggs?!

I mean, really.

I have 3 kids. We dye a lot of eggs. Nobody eats that many hard-boiled eggs.

I always end up doing batches and batches of deviled eggs because my kids won’t touch a hard-boiled eggs but if you scrape out the yolks and mix it with a bunch of stuff and then put it back into the egg? They will fight over them.
