Spring Break

I have been on Spring Break this week.
So it has been a huge catch up week for me!
While the kids were in school, I was able to go out to lunch with friends, move winter clothes out and bring spring clothes in and make a bunch of foods to put into the freezer.
We are so busy these days, usually over the dinner hour that it is easier for us to eat an early dinner and have a big snack after everyone is showered.
So this is what I made:
Rice Pudding Recipe
This is one of our all time favorite recipes.
My daughter loves to grab these for a treat for her lunch.
It is from Cooking Light.  We have made it for years.
I love that I can adapt it by using brown rice.

Next I made these yummy treats!
Of course I found the recipe on Pinterest.
These are delicious and not fried!
I baked them and then froze them, easy to grab and reheat.

I also made Calzones and Baked Mac and Cheese.
Both are homemade recipes that I put together after experimenting and that work best for our family.
I had some other things I was going to make but just didn't get to it!
Lastly, I froze a huge tray of banana slices, which we use in smoothies.

It has been a great week of sun and fun! 
Goodness I hope the weather is this great where we are going for Spring Break!

Now time to clean....we are having a St. Patrick's Day party tomorrow night, after all of the other festivities are done.
Homemade corn beef and cabbage and of course pastrami fresh off the smoker!

Have a great weekend!
