Let's Get Acquainted AND Tried It Tuesday!!

I'm linking up with Latoya from Flying Into First Grade for her weekly "Let's Get Acquainted" linky party! This week's topic... Stranded on an island- What three things would you have with you? Fun!! If I were stranded on Key West, I'd be a happy camper... not sure about being stranded anywhere else though. Gilligan's Island didn't look too terrible!=)

First up is my family. I couldn't live without them! 

Next is a fishing pole. I'd rather fish for food than hunt for it. 

Finally, I'd need some sunscreen. Although I do tan pretty well, I also burn really easily if I don't use some kind of protection. 

Make sure you check out Flying Into First Grade's linky to see what other bloggers would bring with them! 

I'm also linking up with our friend Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her "Tried It Tuesday" linky! 

So, it's no secret {at least in my house} that I'm NOT the greatest cook. I really don't enjoy cooking, at all. Unfortunately, my husband works a lot of nights so I'm left to cook for Makenzie and myself a LOT. Ugh... what's a girl to do? Fortunately, I have a Pinterest board with LOTS of different yummy recipes!! Here are two of my favorites that I've "tried" a whole bunch of times. They're both super easy, and even not so gifted chefs, such as myself can easily make them!! =)

These ham and cheese sliders are TO DIE FOR!! I made them the other night {for the millionth time}, and I had a few leftover, so I'm going to reheat them for dinner tonight! I LOVE the poppy seed- mustard sauce that's drizzled over the top, and the melted Swiss cheese inside is soooooo stringy and yummy!! This recipe calls for 24 white dinner rolls, but for a family of three it's a bit much, so we just buy 8 potato rolls {hamburger buns}, use less ham, and less Swiss cheese, and it works just as great. I also don't use miracle whip... I just stick to plain mayonnaise. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe!!  You have to check out this super cute food blog {The Girl Who Ate Everything} while you're looking at this recipe too... she has SOOOOOO many delicious recipes!!

My next awesome Pinterest find is this chicken, broccoli, cheese, and stuffing foil-pack dinner.  You wrap all of the ingredients up in a tin foil packet and bake! That's it!! It's super easy to make and even easier to clean up! I follow the exact recipe and it's delicious!! Makenzie even eats it, and she's wicked picky! I have to go food shopping tomorrow, so this stuff is definitely on my list of things to buy!! 

Not too much teachery stuff going on in this post, but everyone needs a teacher break now and then. Make sure you link up with Holly and Latoya!! 


  1. Kuddos to you for trying the recipes you pin. I usually just pin them and revisit them and say "I've gotta make that" and less it has cream cheese in it : )

  3. Those meals look amazing! I'm NOT a fan of cooking either...you promise they're easy? And your daughter likes them? My kids are picky. Bloggers don't have time to cook, do we??!! Thanks for sharing! Pinning them now.
