Mealtime Monday - Mommy & Baby

I'm completely obsessed with Pinterest. I really have no idea how I ever made dinner without it. It has opened up the world of cooking for me.

Recently I made a super yummy and healthy Kale salad that I found.

Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad with Bacon Poppyseed Dressing

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


6 cups baby kale {prewashed kind}
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 ripe avocado, sliced
for the dressing-
4 slices bacon
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
salt & pepper, to taste


Place kale, strawberries and avocado into a large bowl and set aside.
For the dressing, cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and drain bacon on paper towels. Crumble into small pieces and whisk together with remaining ingredients. Drizzle over salad and serve.

For the twins I found these English Muffin Pizzas. They were a big hit! I also liked that you spice it up each time you make it with different toppings. 

English Muffin Pizzas
  • English muffins
  • Pizza sauce -or- Marinara sauce (pesto is also tasty!)
  • Pepperonis*
  • Spinach, chopped or ripped*
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Italian seasoning
* choose any toppings you want

When the twins are older I'll let them help make them, but for now, it's all me. 
I used the toaster oven on 425 because it's quick!
