Easter Place Setting Ideas.

Joe and I have it really good when the holidays roll around.
Since both of our families live close by - - we luck out with always having a place to go to.
{Translation: I don't have to host it at my house}

I do however have a Pinterest board full of cute Easter hostessing ideas in case we ever need to
 step up to the plate. 

Here are some of my favorite ideas:

Such a festive way to spruce up a white napkin!

LOVE the simplicity of this tulip up against a colored napkin.

Carrots, anyone?
I. LoVe!
{Not so Fun Fact: I'm allergic to raw carrots. Boo!}

Image and Idea
I'm always a sucker for monogrammed anything!
These monograms are just stickers. How simple!

If you're having a buffet for Easter dinner - this is the perfect way to label the food.  Use a felt tip pen/marker and just write on top of your already colored eggs. Convenient, no?

I think this is my favorite idea of all.
Easter cookie cutters filled with colored M&Ms.
How fun would that be on a plate?

2fer Tuesday.

2 Recipes You Really Should Know About:

1.Creamy Crockpot Pork Chops

But first.....

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks of Peter Brady from the Brady Bunch when I hear/think/see the word Pork Chops.  I was trying to explain it to my children the other day and they just were not gettin it.

This recipe makes the perfect Sunday dinner.
Quick. Easy. And in the crockpot.

We served ours with a side of Rice-A-Roni and veggies.

4-8 boneless pork chops
1 packet of dry Ranch seasoning
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
1 large can of cream of chicken soup

Add everything into the crockpot and cook on low all day.
{At least 6 hours.}

That's it!
You can thank me later. Or with a Diet Coke.

2. Bowtie Pasta with 
Italian Sausage

This one I discovered on a blog a couple of years ago and it quickly became a family favorite.  We made it tonight and I was reminded of just how much we LOVE it.

Thank you Lil Luna for sharing it with your readers!

2 Things that Make You Go Hmmmm.....

Why? Why? Why?

Has anyone tired this flavor?

Why mess with perfectly delicious Milano chocolate.

The Churro Dog.

Baseball games are all the rage here in Phoenix right now.
{Spring Training}.

This creation is the latest dessert to be served at our 
AZ Diamondback games.

It's a churro that's stuffed into a long john chocolate glazed donut topped with frozen yogurt, whipped cream and caramel and chocolate sauce.

Even my sweet tooth says YiKeS!!!

Personal Progress Easter Printables for Young Womens.

This is a re-post for a couple of tags I created last year.
Hope you can use them for your Young Women this year.

I've created 2 different tags that you can use to motivate your girls to work on Personal Progress and they're both a 
FREE download! Woo-hoo.

I found these cute Reese's Pieces in the form of a carrot at 

Target for $0.99.{I love ANYTHING for 99 cents.}

I've come to discover that you can never motivate your girls 

ENOUGH to do their Personal Progress.

So many different options of 'egg' candy that you could use 

with this tag...

Cadburry Eggs - 68 cents

Mini Robin Eggs - 98 cents
