My kids love pancakes and waffles for breakfast. Who doesn’t, really? For years and years, I was buying mixes and syrup at the store. But not anymore! I’ve been making my own homemade pancake mix and my own homemade syrup. It’s really easy and saves me a lot of money! I’m shaking my head wondering […]
Here are our week 10 school lunches. I’ve been mostly using the easylunchboxes lately. Mainly because they’re easier to throw in the dishwasher. The yumboxes kind of get a bit of gunk in a certain area when dishwashed and it’s just kind of a hassle to get it out. I don’t always want to hassle […]
