Carne Asada Tacos | Fresh Corn Salad and Pico de Gallo with ALDI

*This post is sponsored by ALDI. All opinions are my own.  It’s officially summer, and that means the season of cookouts and patio meals is upon us! My favorite. I am always coming up with excuses to make tacos and fun colorful meals. We would probably eat tacos multiple times a week if Ian would let me. I try to refrain or at least change them up if I plan on making them. This past week, I was at ALDI and there were so many great veggies on sale. I decided to make Carne Asada Tacos with a fun and fresh corn…

Snacks on Snacks on Snacks

I hope you all are having a great week! We stole some time away from home and work to visit the lake with some friends. We had such a restful weekend, even though Cove partied so hard he didn’t want to sleep at night… It was amazing how even with little to no sleep, you can still feel rested by just being in a different environment.

Since we have had Cove, I really appreciate a home-cooked meal with them. I used to love eating out, but I’ve become so much more of an…

This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however all opinions expressed are my own.  If you have read TST for any length of time, you know how important it is to me to shop local. But that doesn’t just apply to goods for me, it applies to food also. When it comes to grocery shopping, and food in general, there are two important factors I like to consider before purchasing. Is it local? When products are from local farms, they are usually fresher and have better nutrition due to them not having…

One a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

When it came to eating solids, we didn’t really have a problem. Cove loved food and was reaching for ours early on. One of the things we were concerned about was how much iron he was getting. I have always suffered with iron deficiency, so I never wanted that to be an issue for him. When we first started introducing food, I started mixing in rice cereal and oatmeal cereal. Since Gerber Cereals have 90% of your baby’s daily value of iron in two servings, I can ensure that Cove gets everything he needs. (Especially so when they have to take…
