Friday Favorites!

Favorite New Meal: Cheeseburger Salad from the Pioneer Woman
This was YUMMY! I think I can get Jed to eat just about anything, but when I suggested serving a salad for dinner, he wasn't thrilled. Until I said it was a CHEESEBURGER salad and showed him the picture, then he was pumped. I had never made my own croutons before and that was kind of fun to do. She suggests using a whole stick of butter to make them but I probably only used half a stick or less... the Pioneer Woman LOVES butter. I thought the flavor was really good and it was definitely filling enough for both of us. I used 1/2 lb of ground turkey instead of 2 lbs of hamburger, since it was just for the two of us. Definitely will make this one again!

Favorite Momma Moment:
On Monday, Lainey and I made a quick Target trip. I am starting to get really tired of lugging that huge, heavy car seat around so I decided since she's sitting pretty well I'd try putting her in the front of the shopping cart. I literally needed 3 things so I figured if she wasn't having it or it didn't work, I could carry her and it would be fine. Luckily, she loved it.
My oh my, she looks so big. So cute.

Favorite Verse:
A familiar one to many... but Jesus' words were especially encouraging and helpful to me as a mom this week...
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. [matthew 11:28-30]
