T.P. Roll reindeer

A simple craft, perfect for toddlers! It took a little bit to convince my son to let me trace his hand (He turned 2 a couple months ago) but he eventually came around and let me trace ONE hand. And it looks like he is making the sign Spock makes on Star Trek lol but I just used that to make both antlers.

 For this craft you need:

Glue or glue stick
Brown construction paper
Toilet paper roll
Red Pom Pom ball 
Black marker to color the eyes
White construction paper for eyes

Trace your kiddo's hands. If they are difficult you can just do what I did and get one hand and then use that one for both. 

Draw ovals for the eyes and cut out, draw the pupil in black how ever you want, silly Googly eyes or add color if you'd like, it's all up to you :)

Last, glue on the eyes, Pom and hands. Easy!

Turkey & Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are seriously SO good! I have just recently gotten more brave with the veggies I am willing to eat and I've learned something... Bell peppers are delicious!

Here is what you need for this delicious dinner:

4 bell peppers of your color choice
1 cup of brown rice or quinoa, cooked just shy of done
1/2 cup black beans (canned) rinsed and drained
1/2 cup corn
1 lb ground turkey, seasoned with Ms Dash Southwest seasoning
1 cup petite diced tomatoes
1 cup tomato sauce (add more if you like it more saucy)
1/4 cup of your fave cheese

And here's what you gotta do:

1. Cook brown rice or quinoa according to directions
2. While rice/quinoa is cooking, brown ground meat and season
3. Drain and rinse black beans
4. Portion out diced tomatoes, corn, tomato sauce and cheese
5. Combine in large bowl- meat, tomatoes, corn, rice or quinoa, beans and sauce
6. Cut off caps of peppers and pull out ribs and core. Rinse excess seeds out
7. Stuff peppers with filling
8. Sprinkle with cheese
9. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Cheese should be melted and filling should be heated all the way through
10. Dig in! This recipe serves 4. 

I love these even more for leftovers! Enjoy!

One year photo idea!

This is a simple & fun idea!
My son was at the age he never wanted to sit still, but put something new in his hands and it keeps him content, at least long enough to get a couple shots!  :)

Purple Hair

I've had my hair like this for a couple of months, I love it! It's hard to go back to a normal hair color after all these fun colors!

Winter is Coming

Well, I haven't posted in awhile.  Here in North Dakota, we only get about 2 months of nice weather and after being stuck indoors all winter, we were ready to frolic in the melting snow in April when the temps were finally above 40 degrees. So that is my excuse for my lack of effort regarding my blog :)

But now it's getting chilly out (and snowing in some places!  Noooo!!!)
I only thought it would be fitting to welcome back my blog with this meme.  
And good luck this winter, it's supposed to realllllllllllllllly suck this year!

Cinnamon roll waffle

This was extremely easy to make and the kids loved it! All you need is a tube of the cinnamon rolls that you bake yourself, I used Grands Cinnabon. 

Just heat up your waffle maker, place roll in the middle and press down and allow to cook. I heated up the frosting while it was cooking that way it was warm and ready to pour over the waffle :)

These don't fill up the entire waffle maker, they are on the small side but I still found it to be pretty filling!
