Superhero Birthday Party {Owen’s 4th Birthday}

Superhero Birthday Party {Owen’s 4th Birthday}

Do you remember three months or so ago when I mentioned we had a Superhero Birthday Party for Owen’s 4th Birthday?  And how I also said I would be back to share some of the details?  Well … if you were holding your breath, I’m sorry you passed out long ago.

I had a minute to sift through the pictures this past weekend, so I’m finally sharing some of the highlights …

Homemade Chicken Nuggets {Kids in The Kitchen Series}

Homemade Chicken Nuggets {Kids in The Kitchen Series}

Happy Labor Day!!  I hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend and the extra day off today (hopefully)!

I’m back today with the second edition of our ‘Kids In The Kitchen’ series.  This week, we’re making Homemade Chicken Nuggets!

My kids love Chicken nuggets from fast food places, but very rarely get to eat them (I think I can count the number of times on one hand).  Instead of fast food, we decided to make our own version … with healthy ingredients.  The result?  They LOVED these nuggets (and so did I), AND I felt good about giving these to them!  Real food.  Healthy food.  Kid Friendly.  Perfect lunch idea!

Gluten Free Pancake Poppers {Kids In The Kitchen}

Good afternoon!!

I mentioned last week that I was participating in this ‘Kids In The Kitchen’ series for a variety of reasons.  One of which is that I want and NEED my boys to be able to make healthy food choices when they get a bit older.  I want them to be able to feed themselves when they leave for college (something other than McDonald’s and Ramen Noodles).  College for them is a million years away in my mind, but developing healthy eating habits can (and should) start now.  So, challenge accepted, and here is our first project … Breakfast!

Yesterday, as an entire family, we made Gluten-Free Pancake Poppers!

Owen and Charlie start Preschool in three weeks.  They will be going three days a week for three hours each day (9am – noon).  I’m not gonna lie … I’m kinda secretly excited for ‘school’ to start, but that does mean our mornings are going to get quite a bit more hectic on those days.  With two ‘spirited’ and energetic boys running around the minute they wake up AND a newborn, I struggle to get anywhere before 10am.  School starts at 9 (which means we leave the house at 8:45), and therefore I need some quick ideas for healthy breakfasts!!!  Also breakfasts that they will eat without a fight!
