April has been an exciting month in our Midwestern life. The Husband and I started this blog and I am pretty sure we have at least a handful of readers!! I made some chocolate cups and chicken salad (not together). Mowed the yard, celebrated Easter, shared some brownies, baked some peppers. The Husband offered some new fatherly humor and wisdom. The poodle got a haircut, albeit a bad one. Also, Sweetey Petey had quite the month. He now crawls, says Mama (I swear he does, even the Husband has heard it), started solid foods and grew out of even more clothes. This is all front page news here people.
This was also my first month in the Foodie Pen Pals program started by The Lean Green Bean. As a kid, I had dozens of pen pals; there was nothing more exciting for this girl than getting mail! Nowadays the mail is mostly bills and ads, and most of the packages we get are diapers from Amazon, so a Foodie Pen Pals box sounded like Christmas morning! As a bonus I “met” two lovely ladies, Calee of life+running and Katie of Nutrition in a peanut shell. Both these girls have some spunk so check ’em out. Calee posted a peanut butter cup frozen yogurt recipe recently that there is seriously something wrong with you if you don’t try. Unless you don’t have an ice cream maker. Or are allergic to peanut butter. Or dairy. But otherwise you’re nuts cause it looks fabulous.
