Make a Pit Stop in Bowling Green

As a Kentucky girl, I'm filing this away for a future road trip!

Many thanks to +Tonya Prater for mentioning this - it will be perfect for our next trip through #BowlingGreen

Have you ever had one of those meals that makes your mouth water just thinking about it? This was one of those meals. +BowlingGreen VisitorsBureau  #gearedforfun  
The Montana Grille in Bowling Green, Kentucky offers great atmosphere, food and service, making this a great stop for someone passing through or exploring the area.

Making Bread Dough

My friends tell me it's easy to make homemade bread, but it still intimidates me.

I ran across this recipe for making bread dough from my friend +Shari Lynne, who swears it's simple. I'm going to have to give this a try.

Ground Beef Recipes - perfect for the Freezer!

I'm preparing for heading back to work soon, and I want to make things as easy as possible on my husband. +Brett Kennedy will be managing the fort, filled with five small fry.

If I can get organized and create some easy dinners for him to fix for the kids, it will make the evenings much smoother.

Check out these Ground Beef Recipes from my friend +Shari Lynne. These are perfect for stocking your freezer!

We were lucky enough to get outside and enjoy the warm weather over the weekend ...... before the snow hits again this week! AAACK!

For a park playdate or a picnic, Cleanup is a SNAP with Wet-Nap. My kids loved getting grimy, then cleaning up for some yummy S'mores with +Brett Kennedy in front of the bonfire!

What are your quick clean up tips with kids?

Make Your Own Smoothie Cubes!

I love this tip from +Shari Lynne -- instead of dragging out the blender and making a mess for just one smoothie, make an entire batch and freeze them in cubes!

Makes prep work and clean up so much more efficient!

I love shopping the deals during the seasonal children's consignment sales in our area. I score great deals, and on the seller side, I clean out my closet, garage and attic and MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY!

I'm bookmarking these ideas to help my prep go smoother this fall.

Oh, my YUM!

 This no bake caramel pie looks amazing!

We've got a string of birthdays and special events coming up soon, so I might be making this to take along.
