This is a great kid friendly recipe that is packed full of veggies.  The kids (and adults) love anything that they can pick up and dip, so this is a fun way for to get veggies in.  I think we all get a little tired of eating vegetables the same way all the time.  Veggie nuggets are a great way to give the family some variety, but still eat healthy.

Bittersweet Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome Mamas.  Motherhood is such an amazing and exhausting journey.  It’s full of extreme highs and lows all at the same time.  I think we all deserve more than one day to be celebrated. I’m sure a lot of us really would just love a nap and someone else to cook.  A plate of cookies wouldn’t hurt either.

For many of us Mother’s Day is bittersweet.  It is a day filled with a mix of happiness and grief.  We can snuggle up our babies and a enjoy all their little gifts all while trying not to cry for the one we can’t hold. I wish that we can all find a little peace today and try to enjoy the sweet parts of the day.

I hope that all you mamas have the amazing Mother’s Day you deserve so much and it is filled with lots of happiness and lots of good food too!
