Yes! I scrapped some!

I have totally lost my scrappy mojo since getting pregnant! So here are some layouts I worked on.. not much, but hey, something is something!

 Gift to a lovely Dutch couple that were in Atlanta were 4 years and just went back "home" wanted to give them something special to remember the great times they had here!

Feb and March!

Party Planning time again! Strawberry Shortcake!

Time has come to start planning for my baby girls 2nd birthday party!! OMG!!! She is almost 2!!! So for this year, I have decided to do a Strawberry Shortcake Party! I still wanted to use most items I have as leftover from her first, like pom poms, plates, utentils... which were pink and green.. so I said, Strawberry Shortcake will be perfect just add red and brown!
I already found some inspiration online, especially on Pinterest and ETSY! Don't think I will design my own invitations this year, but we shall see.. I need to make that decision soon! Also, cake or cupcakes????
Here are some inspiration photo's aren't these great???!!!!

New toddler friendly recipes!

I eyeball the recipe... but you can make as little and as much as you would like. My daughter ate this really well...
1) Farfalle pasta (all organic ingredients) boil in some water with seasoning like an all purpose seasoning and some salt if you'd like
2) I used up frozen Organic Peas and Carrots and Spinach, and added fresh chopped Zucchini, 
3) Once the pasta starts boiling, add the veggies.. stir well.. 
4) Once pasta and veggies done, drain, then mix it with some shredded Rotisserie Chicken (Whole Foods), then Alfredo sauce (from Whole Foods) and keep on low heat for a little bit.. and voila! 
You can add shredded cheese or Parmesan when done.. 

I will add broccoli next time, since Isabella loves Broccoli... You can boil pasta separate if you want to do this for the whole family. I did make a LOT..  but this is an easy way to do it...

I always start by boiling the penne pasta. Since Isabella is almost 21 months, I use bigger pasta's now, if you have a younger child, you can use smaller pasta's like the pasta stars, or ditalini pastas...

I also start by boiling the dry aged grass fed ground beef. I freeze them in small balls, so I can make these small portions... I then add diced sweet potatoes, diced carrots, peas, zuccini and broccoli. Drain, then I mix it in with some organic pasta sauce.. still well, cook for a few minutes on low heat.. then store in small containers...

All my ingredients are from Whole Foods and organic.
