Green Bean Corn Casserole ~ Easy and Delicious Side Dish Loaded with Corn, Green Beans, and Cheese!

I know, I know it’s not even Halloween yet and I’m giving you a dish perfect for Thanksgiving. I’m as bad as the stores aren’t I? Wait, if I was then I’d be feeding you mint. Just wait for maybe a week or two and I’ll being doing that. I’ve got to make it past Halloween first before I bombard you with Christmas treats. I swear I will not be one of those stores!

I remember when it was a horror that they displayed any Christmas items before Thanksgiving. We were aghast from this. Now it’s moved onto before Halloween and there are a few comments about it but not much is said. Pretty soon we’ll be replacing our Red, White & Blue on the 4th of July with Red and Green. A new definition to “Christmas in July” will be had. I guess we really must be to blame though. The stores would not push Christmas early if we didn’t start buying Christmas presents and decor that early. Or maybe they would? Maybe they are just trying to get us to buy into Christmas early and spend more money because the season lasts longer. Any one know the true answer?

Remember when I shamelessly told you about my new addiction to this Homemade Caramel Sauce? I also told you about how I was putting it on pretty much everything in sight. I wasn’t lying. I’m hear today to introduce you to the place my love affair all started. Right here with Pumpkin Bread that I first drizzled it on. Then I promptly fell in love with it.

You know what? This Pumpkin Bread is actually amazing naked and with no caramel drizzle but you know me, I’m all about taking everything over the top.

 Need some new snack ideas for the kids? Check out these amazing new snacks from Gold Emblem Abound! 

Abound Children Snacks

 Miss K is a snacker just like her Momma. From the time we get home from work until supper is a trying time for her. She’s ready to eat the moment we enter the house and of course supper isn’t ready unless I have something in the crock pot. I need something to tie her over from the time we get home until the time we are ready to eat. A lot of the time she gets bananas, apples, grapes, applesauce or something like that, but sometimes she needs a treat.

 Today I’m going to share my favorite snacks for Miss K from the new Gold Emblem Abound line found at CVS to celebrate Snackurday! Last week I shared my favorite snacks to beat the munchies at work!

Fruit Veggie Snack Bars

Mango & Strawberry Fruit & Veggie Snack Bars are Miss K’s favorite. I’m going to share a little secret they are one of my favorites too. I seriously love them. I have a sweet tooth after meals and these cure that and it’s not bad for me! At only 120 calories they are a lot better for me than that cake that’s usually calling my name.

Don’t tell your kids that they get 2 1/2 servings of fruits and veggies in each bar! If you have trouble getting the kids to eat their veggies this is perfect for you!

Oat Bran CookiesMy child also has an addiction to cookies and yes I give her cookies, but in moderation. She does not get them that often as much of you may be surprised at! When she’s had her cookie quota and is still begging for cookies I love to give her Apple Raisin Oat Bran Cookies to treat her. These cookies are an excellent source of fiber and contain rolled oats. Plus they are perfectly sweet from the plump raisins and apples in every bite!

Head out to CVS and stock up on the amazing Gold Emblem Abound snack line and prepare yourself for smart snacking when the kids start begging for a snack!

Caprese Chicken Panini: A quick and easy sandwich for lunch or dinner!

Are your evenings super busy lately with sport practices, PTA meetings, costume shopping, and the like? How would you like a hot, melty, cheesy sandwich loaded with chicken, tomato sauce, and mozzarella even on a day that you hardly have time to cook? This panini recipe is for you! What’s that you say? You don’t have a panini press? Neither do I! I do have a waffle iron though. If you don’t have one of those either, then you can still make this sandwich grilled-cheese style in the oven or on the stovetop. I must urge you to make these easy sandwiches one way or another because they are go-oo-od!

Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins ~ Amazingly Soft and Moist Muffins Stuffed with Tart Cranberries!

Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins ~ Amazingly Soft and Moist Muffins Stuffed with Tart Cranberries!Fall in my life has always meant harvest time. I grew up on a farm and it seems to have never left me. When you grow up on the farm your life kind of revolves around it. I can honestly say it’s a lifestyle and not a job. I don’t ever remember my dad “clocking” out. It was always on our minds, in our conversations and all because it was a passion buried deep in his heart. I think I can tell you that he doesn’t observe it as his job but his life. I often wonder what it would be like to have a passion like that. I truly believe only a few people get to experience that in life.

One of the things that happens when the guys are in the field is my mom brings the evening meal, piping hot, right out to where they are in the field. This is an incredibly nice things of her to do and the guys look forward to it. In fact they get really, really depressed when it doesn’t happen. For example when Mom falls ill for over a week right in the middle of harvest. Epic conundrum.

Good thing I have a guilty conscious. As in I feel incredibly bad for them working so hard and not getting a meal. I’m a very sympathetic sister and daughter. That’s right my husband isn’t even out there for me to feel sorry for. He’s been assisting in the construction of my brother’s garage addition instead of farming right now.

I’m going to get real. Hold on to your seats. Ready? If you don’t want to listen just scroll to this amazing recipe at the end of the post. Ok? It’s ok… I understand. That Pumpkin Angel Food Cake looks amazing. I might scroll too.

I used to be proud of the fact I was an independent woman, that really didn’t need a guy. I did my own thing until I met my husband and I was proud of it. I traveled, made my own money, bought cars, lived alone etc. I did it. I know I can do it. There’s something to be said about it.

Then I got married and I adjusted and things changed and we adapted. I was still independent. I didn’t care if the hubs worked late because I had my own things going on. Do not take that in the wrong way. I totally love him, but I also was fine on my own. I found stuff to do and I knew he was busy. There were no hard feelings.

Get the mid morning munchies at work like me? Check out these amazing new snacks from Gold Emblem Abound! 

Abound Snacks

Today we are chatting about snacks and your routine to celebrate Snackurday with CVS and introduce their new Gold Emblem Abound line. I’ll be honest. I’m a snacker. A big one.

I try to keep it healthy and snack smartly but I’ve been known to cave to the candy dish that sits on the front counter at work a little to often.

That’s why I keep a stash of snacks in my office that the co-workers don’t know about, well until now. Maybe I’ll need to add a padlock to that snack cupboard of mine! It never fails that between 10 am and 11 am the munchies hit and my stomach is growling. This is why I need to be prepared instead of heading for a sugar rush.

 I first tried the Abound line from CVS back in May at BlogHer Food in Miami and fell in love. I was smitten. They have a HUGE lounge featuring their snacks and I maybe have lived in there more than I’d actually like to admit. Like I said I’m a snacker through and through!

Chocolate Chunk Chia Snack Bars

 One of my favorite mid morning treats for myself is a granola bar, but it’s hard to fine one that isn’t loaded with sugar and ends up not really being healthy at all. That’s why I love these Chocolate Chunk & Chia Snack Bars. I get my sweet tooth fix with the chocolate but it’s also loaded with 10 grains in each bar and a great source of dietary fiber!

Almonds

 Almonds in my snack cupboard are a must have.  They are a great “power food” which means they fill you up with healthy fats and some fiber! That’s what we are going for right? I love grabbing a handful and munching on them knowing that they will tie me over until lunch and I won’t have to go raid that candy bowl.

Omega 3 Trail Mix

Omega-3 Trail Mix is an excellent source of ALA omega-3s. This trail mix is loaded with walnuts, pepitas, cashews and hazelnuts with dried cranberries and sweet raisins. I’m in love with that combo!

Sweet Nutty Probiotic Trail Mix

Sweet & Nutty Probiotic Trail Mix is what I’m going for when I’m craving sweet and salty. I love that I can get my sweet fix from the rich, dark chocolate covered cranberries plus the sweet raisins that are dipped in creamy yogurt coating. Then the sweets are mixed with crunchy almonds. Best part is the yogurt is a special probiotic yogurt coating!
Snack Collage

Head out to CVS and stock up on the amazing Gold Emblem Abound snack line and prepare yourself for smart snacking when the munchies hit you!
