Thai Coconut Shrimp with Wild Rice – A Raley’s Chefs’ Menu

Thai Coconut Shrimp with Wild Rice - A Raley's Chefs' Menu

Thai Coconut Shrimp with Wild Rice

A Raley’s Chefs’ Menu**

We’ve all been in that situation where we are completely uninspired and short on time for dinner.  You’ve got hungry people to feed and you need a plan like 20 minutes ago.  This is exactly why I’m loving the new Chefs’ Menu line at Raley’s.  They are so easy and tasty I’ve actually been making them for lunch too.

If you can nod in agreement to any of the following questions you need Raley’s Chefs’ Menus in your life:

  • You don’t think you’re a “good” cook.
  • You are short on time.
  • You hate doing dishes.
  • You do not eat gluten.
  • You don’t like to do any prep.
  • You are dairy-free.

Lurong, Magical Dragons, and a Tear-Free Swim

This was a little bit of a crazy week!  My husband and I started doing the Lurong Summer Living Challenge with our box, Folsom City CrossFit, so that means a whole new eating plan that takes more prep and thought than whatever I was doing before.  It’s a really interesting plan, it’s not paleo and not Atkins.  Lurong is somewhere in between.

Good Clean Fun with Firefly

Star Wars Light Up Toothbrush  //  Hello Kitty Light Up Toothbrush  //  Hello Kitty Fluoride Rinse

Apparently I have been living under a rock for some time.  Up until recently I had my kids using the toothbrushes from the dentist or the occasional character one from the grocery store.  When I received these Firefly toothbrushes that TALK and LIGHT UP I knew I had to tell everyone about them.  The first few people I told said they already had them!!  I mean, what?  How did I not know about these?

What we really want: A Mother’s Day Party for US – VIDEO

What we really want: A Mom's Day Party for US

What we really want: A Mother’s Day Party for US

How many moms out there feel like Mother’s Day is stressful and not a relaxing day to celebrate you? From the grandmothers, to aunts and mother in laws it could be a crazy holiday to organize and make memorable for all the moms in our lives.  So why not throw OURSELVES a party with all our best mom friends?  I’m inventing an occasion about celebrating all the mothers I love that didn’t raise me or birth me.  Instead, it’s the village of moms I’ve collected that help me be a better mom each and every day.  THEY are definitely worth celebrating.  So here’s my take on What we really want: A Mother’s Day Party for US.  I was on Good Day Sacramento over the weekend talking with Melissa about this party.  The videos are below.

We do not have pool in our backyard and it can get over 110° in Northern California in the spring and summer time.  So when Mom Spark Media came out with their campaign about the New Air AF-520B Outdoor Misting Fan I jumped at the opportunity to try the product for myself.  I am so glad I did, it is pretty awesome.

Here is my California Cool: AF-520B Outdoor Misting Fan Review.
