Weekly Digest, no. 5

>> Saturday, April 12, 2014

I missed a couple editions of our Weekly Digest because we were so hectic with our house stuff.

So, this week -- you get DOUBLE the links!

We've started giving you guys some of our favorite recipes to make with ALL Aldi foods. #unsponsored as always -- you'll love this recipe for its frugality and flavor.

Here's a handy post with some of the foods I make on the weekend that fill our stomachs all week. Super simple "recipes" you won't want to miss.

$400 Kitchen Update + Final Tweaks

We got some negative feedback on our open kitchen shelving -- so we decided to be proactive and do something about it now. Check out the dramatic transformation on the cheap!

Roasted Carrot Soup + White Miso

A quick and easy soup that's got some unique flavor. This recipe goes the distance, too -- as we used leftovers in hummus and pizza crust!

What $77 Looks Like at Aldi

For those of you who are more visual, I posted photos of our latest Aldi haul. I was incredibly impressed with the number of foods (including organics!) we were able to snag for such a low bill.

Try It // Black Bean + Carrot Brownies

A healthed-up version of one of your favorite treats. You'll love the nutrition in this recipe, but it's got all the great taste to boot.

Roasted Carrot + Miso Chickpea Spread

Have a cup of soup leftover? Here's a delicious way to use it up!

Finger Painting Bags Are Awesome

A wonderfully not-messy activity to do with babies and toddlers to express their creative sides.

Weekend Update // House Offer Ed.

We have a contingency offer on a house! A few photos, along with details from our latest 15K race (we both PR'ed).

Happenings of Late

An honest view of how I feel my mothering is going these days. Though I think we ALL do a great job as parents, there's always room for improvement.

What's the Deal?

Some great momma, baby, and toddler deals -- hand-picked by me for you! This month's theme is spring. Lots of wonderful finds, including some things we own that Ada absolutely loves.

House Drama

Some field notes from our open house -- along with the drama we faced when our sellers wouldn't sign the contract! Thankfully we do have a signature. Now we just need to sell in 60 days!

Postpartum Thoughts // 2.5 Years

I feel like I'm the only mom on the planet waiting more than two years between kids. If you're in a similar boat, read my thoughts on the matter.

Fun Learning Tool + Preschool Decision

Our new favorite educational activity (it's something I loved as a kid!). Plus, what we decided for Ada's preschool arrangement next fall.

Hold On + Let Go

A somewhat ramble post about a hectic life, the meaning of life, and comparing myself to Edna from The Awakening.
