***Thing Bonus! The reasons I do the things I do.

I hope you enjoyed seeing our “Tex-Mex Week” as much as we enjoyed documenting it.

 

Do you ever pick a theme and explore it with your kiddos? What kinds of things does your family do to learn about different cultures, countries or cuisines?

If you decide to have a Tex-Mex week – or another theme week, I’d love to hear all about it!

Here’s to a happy and stress-free week! (What?!? I hear that’s *totally* a thing!)

Kick it Up a “Nacho” Storm Chips

Happy Thursday from snow covered, yet sunny, Nova Scotia!

We had a spring storm. A Blizzard. It was a real doozie, if you catch my “drift”?

It’s another snow day after the amazing spring (Hah!) storm we had yesterday and overnight. Bonus snow days are the best!

So, with everyone I love most in the world home again playing and/or working I thought I should make a fun lunch. I did a quick opinion poll and everyone agreed nachos were a great idea. I love it when a plan comes together so quickly.

I love it even more when a meal plan comes together so quickly!

This is a great lunch for weekends or storm days. You can use up leftovers and get your “5 a Day” veggies in, all at once, if you do it right.

So, without further ado, I give you “Kick it Up a ‘Nacho’ Storm Chips”!

 

Serve with salsa, sour cream and, if you have it, a bit of fresh cilantro and you have one very easy and happy making meal. So yummy!

Now, you must tell me, how did *you* weather the storm?
