We’ve reached the point of absolute end of the school year chaos.

Between end of year projects and exams and soccer and 7-on-7.

I’m done.

I’m ready to not have to worry about who needs a Benjamin Franklin costume and who needs a terrarium. I’m over stressing out about 2 soccer practices on the same night at the same time in 2 different cities.

I need a vacation.

I’m really relying heavily on no fuss 20 minute dinners like this Parmesan Pasta with Bacon and Peas.

Bacon Spinach Feta Chicken - low carb and keto recipe! Crispy chicken thighs in a delicious feta sauce with bacon and spinach! 30 minute meal, perfect for weeknights!

I’m going to start this post by saying that my 6 and 8 year olds ate zucchini noodles for the first time because of this chicken.

Like, pulled it out of the fridge and asked if they could have it. For their after bath, pre-bedtime snack.

Yeah.

That sauce will change your life. Or at least change your opinion of zucchini noodles.

I mean, it’s got butter, heavy cream, and two kinds of cheeses so how can it not be delicious?!

How do you feel about dyeing egg?

I’m an only child so dyeing eggs was fun for me. I got to do all the eggs my mom was willing to sacrifice to the cause, I didn’t have to fight with anyone over colors, no one wanted to chitchat as I expertly drew “I <3 [insert random boy name] with the clear crayon on each and every egg.

I have 3 kids.

Which means I’m buying 3 of the exact same kit because lord knows I wouldn’t survive buying 3 different ones because someone will definitely feel like they lost out by not getting the glittery dinosaur kit. And I can’t just buy one kit and have them share. That would be even worse.

And the anxiety I feel by having 12 cups of colored water on my counter with 3 boys flailing around?

Nope.

We dye eggs every year though. I’m yelling “I’m doing this alone next year!” by the end, but at least I do it, right?

Bacon Alfredo Pizza – homemade pizza recipe with easy alfredo sauce, crispy bacon, spinach, and mozzarella! 

Bacon Alfredo Pizza - homemade pizza recipe with easy alfredo sauce, crispy bacon, spinach, and mozzarella!

We’re not going to talk about this crust.

Okay, fine, we’ll talk about it.

So I didn’t use my regular crust recipe because it calls for, like, 5 cups of flour and this was Spring Break and I’m not about to take all my kids to the grocery store for flour. So I used a recipe that sounded delicious – I mean, honey wheat pizza crust? That only needs 2 3/4 cups of flour?

Sold.

Hi guys, I don’t usually post on the weekends but I’ve been holding onto the photos for this Loaded Baked Potato and Cauliflower Soup for weeks now and wanted to get it post while the weather is terrible and we’re all freezing.

I had plans today, got all the kids in the car, and then immediately drove home after putting gas in the car because I literally couldn’t.

Too cold for me.

Everyone keeps saying, “Amanda, it’s February, of course it’s cold” but y’all, last February I was wearing sleeveless dresses in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and not complaining about it being too cold to have a Jeep.

Summer needs to hurry.
