Another week come and gone - I'm sort of in denial that the kids have one more month and a week or so of summer break. It's going by much too fast! I'm really excited for the July 4th weekend and we are going to be swimming and grilling out at Nick's mom's house. Also just for funsies, I'm doing a giveaway for a $20 Amazon giftcard - tell me what y'all are doing for the weekend and what foods you're excited for?!
diced tomatoes, celery, onion soup mix, ground beef (2.5 lb), bacon bits, green bell pepper, onion*, salad, broccoli

Break in your regular Fantastical Sharing feed for some yogurty goodness! Yogurty is totally a word!
Since having Mason, I have been a yogurt-aholic…also a word. Stay with me here, folks. But yogurt by itself isn’t all too filling. I have taken to adding fruit on occasion, but I always add some type of trail mix. My favorite has peanuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and almonds. Yoplait has come out with a new product that combines Greek yogurt with whole grain oats, flax, and pumpkin seeds for a more filling but still healthy snack: Yoplait Plenti yogurt!

Recently, the idea came to make Thursday our Throwback day for dinner recipes. We do Taco Tuesday, Soup Night on Wednesday, "All American" (pizza or burgers) on Friday...and Nick was like "how about on Thursdays, we eat an old favorite and do Throwback Thursday?" - GENIUS! We don't eat the same recipe very often, so I actually really liked this idea. I don't usually scheduled posts for Thursday, but decided it was also a good idea for the blog to do a "throwback" post.

We have been in our house for about 6 months now, so it's strange to me to just be catching up on posting recipes that I made when Nick first got here to Tennessee. The kids and I (just Matt & Cami at the time) had moved down last July and Nick moved down in September. This pizza recipe was one I made the very night Nick arrived to Tennessee. Since I was pregnant with Mason, I was having weird cravings - namely, spicy foods. So this pizza was a must.
You get heat from the chipotles - a nice smoky heat. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet & Spicy bbq sauce. The jalapenos last summer were just extra spicy - which was awesome! And, of course, Frank's Red Hot Sauce is always a nice touch of heat. The cheese and pineapple did help not to make the heat overpowering, but it was still a really great slice of spiciness :) It was exactly what I was craving!

Originally, when I my June meal plan, Nick was supposed to attend army school. This meant I was gonna carb it up and eat things he didn't like. Then his school got cancelled and I decided I'll just try and modify those particular nights that I know he won't like. Last week, we had Caesar Chicken Sandwiches and I bought a extra pack of chicken and made buffalo chicken for his sandwiches. I'm thinking alfredo will be a good substitution for the dressing for Monday.
