This weekend was filled with rain, rain and more rain. So, instead of our normal mix of fun activities and some business we actually decided to simply enjoy our home and relax with the rain, some movies and of course yummy food. The perfect ingredients for a perfect weekend. In honor of Alpine Lace’s My Life Ingredients campaign I decided to share how Alpine Lace Swiss cheese helped fuel my weekend at home doing what I love to do best…hang out with my men.
As the only lady in my home I was lucky enough to be woken up with breakfast in bed this weekend!
This pregnancy I’ve been on a huge cheese kick, which is good because I haven’t really been loving any other sort of protein. So, my men made me a massive croissant egg sandwich complete with my latest cheese obsession, Alpine Lace reduced fat Swiss cheese.
Of course my breakfast in bed was not a solo affair after a couple of minutes this little man decided to join me.
You see little Hudson has been driving me nuts with eating lately. All he is interested in is fruit snacks and goldfish. Most meals are left untouched and he simply tells me, No, thank you, when I ask him to try the meal I put in front of him. It seems like it’s a normal 2 year old thing to do, but I keep blaming myself that he isn’t eating a well balanced meal. So, I’ve started to get creative with the way I display food for him in the hopes that he will give something a little nimble or two.
A paired a fun cutting board that I used as my plate, a paper kraft bag to fill with carrots (his favorite), grapes for something sweet and a little Swiss cheese and turkey sandwich.
I had a little victory when Hudson exclaimed, “Wow” when he saw the whole set up and actually ate a little bit of everything.
For dinner we all wanted something light so I rounded up some of my favorites: cheese roll-ups, turkey roll-ups, mixed nuts, grapes, strawberries and wheat crackers. Yum! I made things super easy by just using a large platter for all of the goodies and paper plates. Who doesn’t enjoy a quick and easy meal that doesn’t require a ton of prep work or clean up.
