TBT: Overnight Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Welcome to September! I had to laugh when I saw a something on Facebook that referenced how everything would turn into pumpkins come September 1st. I know, as a blogger, we start thinking in pumpkin terms around mid-July so we’ll be ready but I always wonder if everyone else gets annoyed by pumpkin so early. So, I asked on Facebook what you guys would prefer to see today and overnight pumpkin pie French toast beat out the competition!

Spicy Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp

I might be slightly obsessed with take-out noodles. I am totally that person you see in the movies eating them straight out of the little white boxes straight from the refrigerator. I always get our place to add a little extra spice to mine and not a single noodle goes to waste. Of course, I save it for the weekends when I am not trying to eat most Paleo ;) In our efforts to make more home cooked meals, I started making spicy pan fried noodles at home.

Paleo One Pan Italian Chicken

School started today. I’m pretty sure all the moms in my neighbor let out a sigh of relief mixed with a twinge of stress. Sure, we get back on a regular schedule now but that schedule gets infinitely busier thanks to homework, after school activities and all the other stuff that comes along with school starting for the year. It makes the regular stuff like cooking dinner just a little bit more difficult. Thankfully, we can all embrace one pot meals like this paleo one pan Italian chicken to make dinner go a little smoother.

Cheesy Chicken Kabobs

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.

We are headed back to school soon which means quick dinners and working hard to satisfy picky kids. One thing I know they will always go for is chicken nuggets. I like to change it up though and make it fun so I make cheesy chicken kabobs using Tyson® Chicken Nuggets.

Thai Peanut Rice Bowl

I am excited to share one of my favorite new recipes using Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. While this post is sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Have I told you yet that school starts here on Monday? Can you tell I’m a little stressed thinking about it. I’m looking over our calendar and I can feel at least 10 new gray hairs popping up. I’ve gotten used to a laid back schedule where dinner could take awhile to make and no one really cared. That all changes come Monday because we add in homework, gymnastics, dance and so much more into our evening schedule. Good thing I have items like Minute® Ready to Serve Rice to turn to so I can still create delicious dinners like a Thai peanut rice bowl in the limited amount of time I have.

Thai Peanut Rice Bowls are the perfect quick and easy weeknight meal option. Meatless Monday has never tasted so good.

A Thai Peanut Rice bowl is the perfect dinner option when you need something quick and easy but still want it to taste delicious.

Bacon Avocado Crostini

**I know we usually do Paleo Mondays but, to be honest, vacation kicked my butt! So, enjoy this delicious crostini recipe instead and we’ll get back to the paleo goodness next week!**

So, we totally buy our avocados at Costco. When you have a five year old who eats 1-2 per day, you need to buy in bulk. But, sometimes he just isn’t feeling it and we are left with a bunch of avocados and no idea what to do with them. We can only eat so much guacamole after all. I was having friends over recently and decided to put them to good use by making bacon avocado crostini.
