I love Bacon

Anyone who has known me for any length of time more than likely knows of my great love for the crispy, salty, delicious piece of pig! There's just something so right about the sizzling unkosher delight. 

I've heard it called the "gateway meat" for vegetarians. I was raised Seventh-Day Adventist; and until I was 15 I was sheltered from things like bacon, lobster, shrimp, sausage -- the list goes on. So when I had my first taste of the Three Little Pigs, I was hooked!

Where did that come from? Mr. Incredible and I have been talking about our eating habits lately and what changes we'd like to make. I found a very good menu planning site for busy families: Once A Month Mom. This site provides menus for anywhere from a week to an entire month, you can make it all in advance and freeze it, and pop it in the oven as needed. Saves time, money and you know you have meals already - for us, cutting the temptation to pack up and drive to McDonald's!

They have at least six specific menus to fit varying families' needs! I'm very excited. We actually talked about some Vegetarian/Vegan meals, they certainly look good! We said that we could actually see ourselves going that route if it wasn't for bacon! Anyway we'll see how it goes. :)

One very cool thing I found on YouTube, for Vegetarians who are itching for the yummy sizzling goodness of bacon, is this: Shiitake Mushroom Bacon! Enjoy!!!

Family Fridays: Roasting Marshmallows at the Kitchen Table

It's been a while since we had a Family Fridays post!
I can't even imagine how that happened, but we're back! And I can't wait to tell you what Pirate and I just did! 
But first! If you follow us on Facebook, (and you totally should!), you may have seen me post this. Well, here is the much awaited answer.
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you may know how important quality time is to us, and especially to our six year old, Pirate. 

Pirate's days are long. They start before "bright and early", since it's still dark at 5am. By the time she gets off of the school bus, we get about three good hours with her a day, four if we're lucky. After the 7 o'clock hour rolls around, all bets are off. Exhaustion takes over. Monsters come out. 


All that to say, family time has to be found and seized!

One year old Tootsie Roll was already down for a nap when Pirate got off of the bus. It was too cold to play outside,  I took one of her favor…

Family Friday: D I Y Game of Clue!

I'm super psyched about this post! It's been in the works for about a week now, and has been a labor of love.  

Mr. Incredible works long hours, so family time has to be found and seized! Hopefully, this will be the first in a weekly series called Family Friday. True, I'm not posting this one on a Friday. But as it turns out, the timing turned out to be perfect as we are SNOWED IN!!
Without further ado, I give you:  The Game of Clue: DIY STYLE!


Nothing says family time like sitting around the table, accusing each other of murder! Clue is a game that is older than tablets and apps. It comes from my childhood, but Mr. Incredible and Pirate had never played before.
Pirate loves few things more than a good craft, so I wanted to see if we could use the wonders of Google (and our printer) to make our own. Originally, I had planned on personalizing it by making family and friends into the suspects. But I thought I’d better keep it simple this time. As soon as Pirate heard that I had a…

We Tried Decaf: Five Cups Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links. We are not decaf drinkers here.
In fact, the last time I bought decaf coffee was years ago. And it wasn't for me. We had company over and we were trying to be considerate. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure decaf is super. But, can someone explain the goodness to me? I mean, sure. Coffee is coffee. And with enough cream and sugar, I suppose I could drink anything. (I don't really mean that!) But really.


Then, along came Five Cups Coffee.  It came to me in a magical Amazon Prime box. In case you don't know, "I offer free shipping" is a great pick-up line.


My thoughts were something like this: Um, it's decaf. But it's apparently special. I mean, it says so on the package, "The World Finest Coffee". (That's a direct quote.)

A roasting date of September-something was written on the back of the package, as well as some good coffee making directions. I didn't get a picture of that - oops.


Inside, whole bean…
