Blueberry Spritzer Cocktail

I love making cocktails. I love trying new things, new recipes, classic recipes, and making things up too! This one is so simple. You can use whatever liquor you want. I prefer bourbon or whiskey. But I think it would be really good with vodka too!

I used 1-2oz of liquor, 2-3 oz of blueberry juice then I topped it off with sparkling water! I had fresh peaches so that is what I garnished it with! I think trying it with raspberries would be so good too!

What is your favorite type of liquor for your cocktails?

Simple Chex Mix

Football season is HERE!  This means lots of Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays watching games.  Tooooo many days a week if you ask me, but apparently no one did.  We go to a lot of football parties- big and small- and most of the time need to bring a snack.  I love Chex Mix recipes.  I have made many different variations over time, tweaking this recipe and that one.  I have finally made a recipe I love.  It is husband and Millie approved as well. It is very simple to make and tastes delicious.Chex Mix

Chex Mix Recipe

  • 2 C- mini pretzel twist
  • 3 C- Cheez-Its
  • 4C- Chex
  • 1/4 C- Butter
  • 1 pkg- Ranch

Preheat the oven to 250*

 

Mix pretzels, cheez-its, chex in large bowl.  Melt 1/4 cup butter and pour all over the mix.  Shake the ranch packet in the bowl.

Take a large spoon or spatula and mix all of the ingredients until the pretzels, cheez-its, and chex are evenly covered in the butter and ranch.  Spread on to a large baking sheet.  I put down parchment paper or aluminum foil- totally up to you.

Put the tray in the 250* oven for 45 mins- stirring every 15 mins.  After 45 mins are up let cool. Then EAT!!  (Place in airtight container to store)

Super east and super yummy too!!  If you make it let me know how it goes and how you liked it!  Can’t wait to hear about it!

Millie Monet

Millie is going to be the next great artist! Well maybe not, but we had fun doing this activity!  It is a great sensory activity to do with babies.  They can see the colors, feel the paint moving, and bang their little hands all over. It is SUPER easy- mess free- and you get a cute piece of art.

Materials:

  • Paint (a few different colors)
  • Paper
  • Ziplock
  • Tape (optional)

Paint1

Squeeze blobs of paint on the paper inside of the ziplock bag and seal.  I choose to use cute Duck Tape to hold it down on her high chair so she doesn’t grab and throw it.

Then let them have at it!  Millie loved to push her little fingers on the paints- then she took to banging away.  She moved and squished the colors around until she had made a beautiful piece of art.

 

We had a fun time doing this sensory activity.  It was cheap, easy, and best of all MESS free! Have you tried this or something similar with your baby? Tell me down below in the comments!
