It’s not just day 1 of “distance learning,” but it’s also #nationalcrayonday so we thought it would be fun to make some art with @crayola crayons. ⁣
⁣
This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

#ad This is a time of uncertainty throughout the world. As a self-employed family, we are having to make important decisions, to make sure that we are saving and spending our money wisely.⁣
⁣
After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣
⁣
There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

Today starts the first week of “homeschool”. ⁣
⁣
Can I be totally honest? The idea of having to homeschool my kids terrifies me. Mostly because I don’t know if I can give them everything that they get at school. We rely so much on our teachers because they are AMAZING at what they do. We are going to try to make sure we make enough time in each day for every subject. I also want to make sure we incorporate some fun arts and crafts projects and outdoor time. ⁣
⁣
We are grateful for the schools providing a list of online resources. I can only hope that we can keep them on the right track. ⁣

What is your school situation like now that so many are closing?⁣

Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish Recipe

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love creating the menu, planning every detail and seeing everyone enjoy themselves as they fill their bellies with everything I worked so hard to prepare for them.  Our Thanksgiving menu rarely changes but this year I’ve decided to take one of our favorite dishes, fresh cranberry orange relish and try to make it a little healthier than normal.

I’m not a lover of cranberry sauce. The thought of that weird, jiggly, canned substance makes my stomach turn.  Luckily, my Mom introduced me to what has become a family favorite in our house, Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish.  It’s tart and sweet and never lasts long. The best part about it is that it’s super easy to make and my kids can help me make it since there is no cooking involved!

thanksgiving thanksgiving recipe thanksgiving recipes cranberry relish recipe cranberry orange relish cranberry orange relish recipe thanksgiving blogluck mom blog mom blogger mom bloggers mom blogs family friendly dishes recipes recipe thanksgiving side dishes food blog food bloggers

All you need is a 10oz bag of fresh cranberries, 2 navel oranges, some sugar and a little water.  The regular recipe calls for a cup of sugar, but this year, I decided to take that down to 1/4 cup.

Take the cranberries and add them to your food processor.  Depending on the amount and size of your processor, you may need to do this in two rounds.

Peel and cut up your oranges and add those to the food processor, as well as a small piece of orange rind.  This gives the relish some tartness.  You can add more or less, depending on your taste.

Next, add your sugar and a couple of teaspoons of water.  You may also consider substituting the water for some sort of juice to give it a little something extra.   Chop all of the ingredients coarsely and place it all into a sealable container and put it into the refrigerator overnight.  You can make this up to 2-3 days in advance if you’d like. The longer it sits, the better it will taste.

When it’s time to serve, you can plate it like it is, or add a cute little garnish to the top.  This year, I created little oranges in the shape of a heart and my kids loved it!  They didn’t even notice the lack of sugar either!  It’s a refreshing dish that can be eaten with dinner, as an appetizer or even as a dessert.  Enjoy! Don’t forget to check out our Dill Stuffing recipe too!

    Yeah, I think this is a much better version of cranberry sauce anyway, not that canned stuff, although I don’t mind it! I love that the oranges look like hearts.
