Breakfast: Cheating at 7am

The picture really says it all. You know of my love affair with Nutella. But did you also know that it is insanely healthy? Ok, maybe not for those of us who have stopped growing. But for little ones, a few tablespoons of Nutella packs a nutritional punch. That is good news because Pops (as in child #4) is nowhere near the weight chart. We take him in for routine weight checks (his doctor is worried) and whenever we succeed, we chalk it up to Pops' daily allowance of Nutella. For breakfast in a hurry, I shmear nutella on an eggo waffle, then add fresh strawberries. The kiddies love it, and I love watching them eat it.

Dinner: Slow Cooker Extravaganza

Most of you know how much I love my dear slow cooker. My good friend, LD, has a fancy-pants crock pot from All Clad that I covet. Someday. Anyway, I've enjoyed looking at these slow cooker recipes and think I'll try a few. I'll start with the Slow Cooker Chocolate Chip Cookies. Can't wait for those babies.
