On the Go Guacamole for a Back to School #SundaySupper

Two weeks… that is all we really have left of Summer Vacation. Two short little weeks. . . I can hear the panic in my kids voices as they count down the days. My boys are a mix of excitement. No one likes the early mornings or the homework, but they like most of their classes, love playing sports and generally all the social aspects of school.  Our Cat is probably the most excited though, she likes all the bags. Cat in a Bag

Barley Salad

This year, I have been trying to stay away from highly processed foods. This  has asked me to get creative with ingredients. Stepping out of my comfort zone of rice or even quinoa, and try new things. Grains, Carbs, they can get a bad reputation in my opinion, but I like my grains and so I need to be more adventurous when I use them. My new grain of choice… Barley. It is not just for the condensed beef soups that you may have grown up with. Barley is awesome.

Lemon Thyme Ice Pops #SundaySupper

It is a Holiday weekend. Lots of fun to be had. The heat of July and August are sure to be on the way… right? We actually spent the 4th bundled into sweatshirts to watch the fireworks. It was chilly down by the lake, but it was beautiful. There is just something magical in a small town festival. Parades, picnics, swimming in a lake and of course fireworks.

Beef Stroganoff… #ChooseDreams Healthy Eating #SundaySupper

Bad day? Rain on your parade? No party invite in the mail? Sometimes, we just need a big bowl of ice cream or mashed potatoes to comfort us, make us feel better. Certain dishes remind us of home when we are far away or they can soothe away the common cold.

Emotional eating may not always be best for a healthier lifestyle though. This week, #SundaySupper is teaming with American Family Insurance and their campaign to #ChooseDreams. We are bringing you healthy versions of classic comfort foods, family favorites with a healthy twist.
