Let the Adventures Continue

Labour Day weekend is here. It has always been the last (long) weekend of “summer” because school always started the week after Labour Day for us. I wish I was out camping right now, because that’s what I grew up doing – going camping on the Labour Day long weekend; hiking, reading, putting on fleece sweaters to roast marshmallows over the last campfires of summer.

Making Hand-Washing Fun

Sponsored Post on Mommy Miracles

I used to try to cut as many corners as I possibly could when I was a child and a young teen. How much toilet paper could I use to still leave enough on the roll so I wouldn’t be required to change it? How far would the car drive, and could I justify not putting on my seat belt for the duration of the trip? What were my chances of getting sent back to wash my hands after a trip to the bathroom from a grossed-out adult, and did I really touch anything worthy of needing to wash my hands when I was in there anyway?

I remember these things.

Chicken, Peach and Quinoa Salad

As much as I like cooking a whole chicken, I can’t seem pass by a grocery store rotisserie chicken without stopping to inhale its amazing aromas.  And, how is it they’re cheaper than buying a raw one?  I bought a 4 lb. rotisserie chicken for $7.99 whereas an uncooked 4 lb. one was nearly $10.00.  […]
