And if you are from down under, it tastes like Jaffas. Oh how I miss those little red balls of yumminess.
So now I've hidden it in the back of the refrigerator so I don't have to share ... okay so I may have bought the original chocolate TruMoo for the kids, but that may have been to throw them off the scent of mine.
Last week Marisol and Flynn turned 8. I can hardly believe it.
They wrote rather lengthy lists of what they desperately wanted for their birthday, one thing being a Minecraft birthday party. Unfortunately I failed miserably at throwing that together. These things happen to the best of us.
I did want to put together a few fun Minecraft surprises for them though. One of the things I did was prepare a special Minecraft lunch for them to take to school.
As you can see I made one for a boy and one for a girl, and with the help of a few free printables I found on-line this was actually a very quick and easy lunch to put together.
The weather still hasn't cooled down here, but I'm dreaming of autumn and hoping for a few cooler nights when we can sit outside to eat. It doesn't mean that I can't make a little comfort food though, right? We can just crank that air conditioning up a little.
Last week I was down and out for a couple of days with what I'm assuming was a reaction to a tetanus shot. Whenever I'm sick, or feeling a little down all I want is comfort food. On one of the mornings I woke up and was craving scrambled eggs, so of course my man jumped up and set about making them for me. Maybe it's because I'd fed him bacon the night before ...
Note to self: Feed him bacon more often.
So yes, the night before I needed comfort food and decided to make a homemade potato and bacon soup. It was delicious. I ate it again the next day for lunch too. It was exactly what I needed.
This soup is fairly quick and easy to make and doesn't require too many ingredients. I didn't even have to go to the store, I had everything I needed. Actually I may have used milk or cream, but I had neither in the refrigerator, so the Half & Half was used instead. It worked out perfectly.
