Olivia's Favorite Meal

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce you to...

I like pepper in case you can't tell!

Summertime.  Where we have a strictly scheduled day.  One that begins at daybreak with reading, writing, and arithmetic.  Meals are all organic and homemade.   Ba!  Who am I kidding?!?!  Starting at anytime after 9, Princess awakes.  Usually over mini muffins, poptarts, or frozen waffles, we watch some Sabrina the Teenage Witch.  TV is usually off while we play with the dolls and she sneaks in the iPod as much as she can.  This should not come as a surprise to anyone-Jenn is all about going retro so her kid is of course going to have a 1980s summer (minus the Diet Rite, Kool cigarettes (mother NOT me), and Days of Our Lives!

Today is the perfect day to throw something in the ol' crock pot and get back to that good book!  Speaking of food.  Every once in a while, if you are lucky, you find something your child will eat without going to all out war with them.  This has long been my saving grace.  Although she has ventured out to more exciting things like edamame or Louisiana Style Chips when dared (thanks Carney), this is our stand by.  We usually make this when Daddy is out to dinner and cigars-otherwise known as Girls Night In at our house.  It started with a recipe from a friend at work YEARS ago, and along the way I tweaked it to our tastes.

Throw some ham in there, you got yourself some Carbonara.  Plate with a salad or green beans and some crusty garlic bread, and you've got a meal!

You can sub for low fat cream cheese and cream of chicken soup, but in the name of taste, go for the gold!

  1. Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I'm buying my cigs over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 60% from cigarettes.
