Self-restraint has stood me up, as evident by my all-you-can-eat style—of—well, eating. Given that, my little guy and I have come to terms this phase in my life with a fitting super hero name: Clean-up. Gotta love it.
And true to my new powers. I nearly ate all of these mixed berry scones with jasmine tea in one day. Sure, the elastic waist band on my skirt is stretched thin in protest, but I have three weeks to go before this will all come to an end.
Happy Cinco de Mayo. I made you guys some Huevos Rancheros. Okay, so I took some liberties with it by making it a Huevos Rancheros casserole recipe. Traditional or not, this is a face-stuffing breakfast that you can stack as high as your belly can take.
By that I mean, this recipe is highly adaptable. A good thing in my home, since it’s full of picky eaters and everyone has their little likes and dislikes. It’s something I’ve come to embrace. And the reason why you see all those small dishes with all the fixings to add in afterwards.
So I decided to stuff a s’mores filling between two chocolate chip cookies to make it one grand Chocolate Chip S’mores Sandwich Cookie. It’s way over the top, but you guys know I have a tendency to do that sometimes.
Good thing over indulgence is moderated here. I think. If not, well, there’s always hitting the gym a bit harder for balance.
