We had a great weekend and I hope you did as well.
Monday always means getting our act together: laundry, grocery shopping, and meal planning, etc. But, as you’re going about your business today– here’s a little “Product Love” for you!
1. Flat Out Flatbreads
These were recommended to me as great (QUICK!) pizza crusts, and after trying them–I’m a believer! Each crust has only 140 calories–which means you can load it up with healthy ingredients and it makes a delicious and satisfying meal. They can also be grilled, which I cannot wait to try. We made them last night with a little bit of roasted peppers and onions (EVOO, S&P and 425′ for about 15 min.) and then added a bit of shredded pork from the freezer. Very good!
Here’s what ours looked like:
Once baked, I drizzled with a bit of balsamic glaze, which brings me to #2!
2. Colavita Balsamic Glaze– this is not the same as Balsamic Vinegar, but is a reduction made from that Vinegar. It is a bit pricey, about 10.00 for this bottle, but I’ve been using it all summer and still have more than half left. It is extremely flavorful so you only need a little bit. It goes great with many things, Caprese Salad being one of the best! Also, think, roasted veggies, grilled steak (perfection!) or pork, and it will jazz up a pasta or risotto very nicely.
These are excellent, non-breakable, dishwasher safe plates for little ones. They also come in bowls. We have had both for years, and they are just as nice as the day we got them. They nestle together, saving space; and they are the perfect size for littles! And at $3.99, they are a steal! Put them on your list next time you visit an Ikea!
We love the quality of Yankee Candles around our house! They are a great product and even though we wait until we can stack a coupon with a sale and get a really good deal, they are still a luxury item for us. This scent is a nice, light springy scent that will carry into that awkward time between summer and fall. Still too hot to break out the pumpkin candles, but still “fall.”
And, now for #5. Something I do NOT love. This sweet baby is starting school on Wednesday. Pre-K 4, only three days a week, but still. This fact had me reduced to a puddle of tears last night when I thought about not being there in case she gets cold and forgets she has a sweater in her backpack. I know. I’m such a baby. But I better get it out of my system while she isn’t looking. She’s going, ready or not.
And she is going to have a fantastic time.
