Are you ready for the weekend?  Stupid question.  Sorry.  My son has his last basketball game of the season tomorrow morning.  We also have a friend flying in from Iowa for the weekend.  We haven’t seen him in over a year, so it should be fun to catch up and just hang out for the weekend.  The guys are going to go to a hockey game on Saturday night, so I have to come up with something fun to do with my son.  The game is in Denver at 8pm, so that is a little late for a 9 year old. Maybe a fun dinner and a movie, we will see.  What do you do with your kids for special nights?

A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to visit Certified Angus Beef® in Wooster Ohio.  They brought 10 bloggers in to see their culinary education center, meet with their chefs, and get cooking for the weekend.  It was such a wonderful experience.  I learned so much about beef; how to pick out the right cut, how to cook it, how to slice it and more.  The chefs prepared a few meals for us, so we pretty much ate like royalty.  Prime rib, lobster stuffed beef tenderloin, truffle fries, and so much more.  Seriously, I probably didn’t need to eat for a week after I got home!

Are you ready for the holiday baking season? It is pretty much upon us.  I have to admit, I am not quite ready.  This year has just gone by far too quickly, I want it to slow down a little!  But today, I am here with a special treat for you.  I have mentioned Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen before.  She is one of my very dear friends in this blogging world.  We were roommates at a conference earlier this year, and I was able to visit her when I was in Ohio a few weeks ago.  So this post is kind of special to me today.  In case you didn’t know Katrina came out with a cookbook (The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook)!!!  She worked so hard on this book, and it is gorgeous and so full of great recipes.

POPtober Pantry Organization


OXO Pantry Organization

Pantry before Organization

My pantry is always a mess.  I have so much stuff, and I always just throw things in there.  It is beyond frustrating to open the door and not be able to find what you need.  Or find 3 boxes of the same thing, because you didn’t realize you already had one.  Normally I am pretty organized, I can not stand clutter, I had piles of junk places, and things just need to get put in their place.  But for some reason, my pantry is a different story.  Part of the problem is the size.  It isn’t huge, but it is plenty big for the average kitchen.  Just big enough to hold too much stuff, but too small to have everything in plane sight.  Well, this month I decided it was time to get organized, and turn things around!

Gnocchi Shrimp Scampi - dinner is ready in less than 15 minutes, and tastes like it came from a restaurant.

Let’s talk about dinner as a family today.  I have said it so many times on here, but I think it is so important to kids and families.  I know that people are busy, and kids are involved in so many different activities lately, and dinner seems to be one of the first things to go.  Grabbing take out, everyone eating at different times, using the drive thru, and who knows how many other things to try to get everyone fed and where the need to be.   I have a child involved in activities, my husband and I both work, I completely understand.  But I remember sitting down with my family as a kid, and that was when we all shared and learned so much about what was going on.  As a parent, I want to know what is happening in my kids life, and I want him to always be able to talk to me.
