Lets Take a Poll!

So sometimes I feel as though I post post post but I don’t really know who is actually looking or reading my blog.

So talk to me wonderful followers! This will be a way for me to make sure I am satisfying my followers but will hopefully let me know who is actually reading/looking 🙂

 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and day off (if you were lucky enough to have one!)

I hope everyone has today off like I do!!! HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! Thank you to all the men and women who serve and have served! It takes very strong people to do what you do and I am very thankful!!!

Last week we made a delicious salad and really enjoyed that sweet corn and bacon Mac and cheese!!

We are trying to be a little healthier and have made a plan to try and have some sort of salad at least once a week, so let’s see how long we can keep it up 🙂

This week’s menu is as follows:

Are Bookmarks Dead?

I came across this on a blog I follow (go check John out, he is pretty cool!) and thought it was a perfect question! Are bookmarks dead?!?

Not to me! I love bookmarks! I don’t have any that are super snazzy or anything but I love being able to look at an “actual” book and see where I am, I love watching the bookmark move. Weird, maybe but I prefer an actual book over an e-reader. With my now busy life do I tend to read more on electronics sure but I prefer not to 🙂

So how about you followers? Do you still use bookmarks? Or do you have other ways to mark your spot?

Bookmarks. No, I’m not talking about that little tab at the top of your browser that saves your favorite websites for easy navigation. I’m talking those things that we used to put on the insides of our books to save our page.

I’ve never been a huge fan of bookmarks. But I always liked looking at all the cool designs at my elementary school book fairs. And at Barnes and Noble on that little twisty thing. You could always find one that caught your interest that you just had to buy. Give me a bookmark with Katniss on it! Matter of fact, give me all of the bookmarks with Katniss on them! Or Hermione. But really, I probably wouldn’t even use those. One of my older brothers gave me some really fancy bookmarks for Christmas in 2012? And I never even removed them from the packaging. Don’t…

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Rolls

I made these forever ago, just on a whim because I wanted a cinnamon roll. So me being me took it a step further and came up with these! (I hope as I type below I remember what I did hahaha!)

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Rolls

Ingredients:

1 can crescent rolls

4oz cream cheese (somewhat softened)

1/2 cup sugar

cinnamon (or cinnamon and sugar)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (or what the temp says on your crescent rolls)
  • Unroll the crescent rolls and press the seams together so there are no breaks in dough
  • In a small bowl, with a mixer cream the cream cheese and sugar together
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture on the unrolled crescent rolls and sprinkle (or dump, depending on how much cinnamon flavor you want) the cinnamon (or cinnamon and sugar) all over the cream cheese mixture
  • Once covered, very carefully roll the dough into a tight log
  • Slice the log into your preferred width ( I did about and inch or so)
  • Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 11-13 min (or the amount of time stated on your crescent roll package)
  • Pull them out and enjoy!

**They are good cool for a couple days too, but I wouldn’t eat them too far after that

Menu Monday 5/12-5/16

I hope everyone had an amazing Mothers day! I know mine was super special and amazing because it was my first! Plus I have double the joy so I got to love on two amazing kids ALL day!

Last week we tried a couple new things and all seemed to turn out ok! We tried Chicken Suiza Taco’s (which is just shredded chicken, onion, green pepper, canned corn, black beans and green chilies, heated on the stove and thrown in a wrap. Let me know if you want the recipe 😉 ) and the One Pot Smoked Sausage and Pasta Skillet wasn’t too bad either! They were both super easy which is why they may stick around.

May Love it’s

Who knew the random things we fall in love with! I don’t think these are too random but some may. I am addicted to the following these past couple weeks 🙂

Dunkin Oreo Vanilla Bean Coolatta: Um hello, Oreo in a drink…YES! YES! YES! It tastes just like an Oreo! I do want to try the coffee one but haven’t gotten around to it yet (but I am sure I won’t have any problems liking it!)

OPI Grape fit nail polish: Isn’t this a beautiful color? I got this on my toes last week when I had gotten a pedicure and I LOVE IT! I have been wearing sandals just so I can show it off even though my coworker thinks I am nuts because even though it is May we haven’t had too much warm flip flop weather.

O.P.I. A Grape Fit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snack Pack Lemon Pudding: OMG! I don’t’ know how I didn’t know about this pudding but it is AMAZING! It is like Lemon Meringue pie in a cup! Jess if you haven’t tried it yet you need to NOW! And Wendy I can’t believe you have been having this all along and I DID NOT know about it! 🙂
