Winter is Back

Remember back in February when it was 70 degrees and we were all excited. Winter came back to smack us in the face. It is COLD, snowy and I can not get warm the last few days!


I have tried working out during Emma’s naptime, but the truth is, by the time her nap rolls around, I just want to sit and worry about myself and no one else. So, I have gone back to early mornings. It’s tough, but I have managed to keep it going and feel like I have a ton more energy though out the day.



After breakfast and getting a few things done around the house, we braved the house and went to Costco.



Snack Time:


My Mom orders Hello Fresh, and had some meals that she didn’t think she was going to like, so I took them off her hands. This one was prosciutto wrapped chicken and risotto.


My thoughts: The chicken was perfection, it was wrapped in the prosciutto, seared for a few minutes each side and then into the oven for about 20 minutes. I will totally be making chicken like that again, I couldn’t’ get enough!

The risotto: I had NO idea that making risotto was so freaking time consuming. I also felt it was really bland. With 4 hungry kids, standing over the stove stirring rice every few minutes and adding the stock a little bit a time, I have no plans on making risotto any time soon. I’ll just stick with my 20 minute brown rice Instant Pot recipe.

Overall, I felt like a legit, hardcore chef and I felt really accomplished that I attempted and finished this dish!
