I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
If there’s one recipe that I just can’t live without, it’s bruschetta. Bruschetta pairs well with pretty much everything. It’s versatile and can be served as a side dish or appetizer. But, let’s be honest here for a second. The real reason I love bruschetta so much is that it’s both fast and easy to throw together, and you really can’t mess it up. When you only have ten minutes to whip together a side dish because the kids are screaming, or you have friends coming over for dinner unexpectedly…this is the recipe you want to make!
You guys are going to LOVE this recipe! This bowl can be made with any in-season veggies you have on hand; it works best with mushrooms, carrots, greens, brussels sprouts and green beans. The gravy is thick and hearty and you are going to want to put it on everything, so feel free to make lots and reheat it as needed.
We get so caught up in all of the things we SHOULD be doing in life; we ‘should’ be exercising, we ‘should’ be eating healthy, we ‘should’ be spending time with our kids…the list goes on. But, sometimes the most powerful changes happen when we stop adding and instead, begin subtracting things that don’t serve us.
To celebrate the new season, I’m sharing one of my favourite cocktails that’s just PERFECT for the warmer weather! I whipped together this blood orange champagne cocktail several weeks ago and knew I had to share it with you guys on the blog.
