Root Beer Floats

Summer! Summer is a time to enjoy desserts guilt free. We are so active in the warm months that one dessert a day, that the kids choose, is totally ok with me. It was hot and we had been to a few playgrounds, the kids decided the Gigis Root Beer Floats were going to be dessert .

I’ve had many questions this year about ice cream safety. I’ve done the research, the MOST safe ice cream is vanilla Breyers Natural Vanilla that is also Gluten Free. When I called Breyers earlier this year, two customer service reps confirmed the nut free status, free of cross contact as well.

Chloe also lost a tooth! So, we celebrated with floats. It was delish!

Have a great week :)🤗😘😎

Therefore, as always, please remember to read the label first for the most up to date and accurate information.

    Campbells Soup at Hand

    The options of Soup at Hand made by Campbells Soup Company are plentiful. When it’s a busy day and we still want a healthy meal at home, we reach for Soup at Hand since it’s only 1 minute in the microwave, sip and go! It fits perfectly in our cupholders in the car, too.

    Saltine crackers are always nutfree, they are made by Nabisco. Organic Girl spinach is triple washed and ready to eat and blueberries were on sale 2/$4 at Metcalfes Market. My favorite salad dressing, Newmans Own Balsamic is also nutfree, but be sure to check your labels. They also make a pecan balsamic and I’ve almost purchased it several times since they look so similar!

    Today is a crazy Friday as we gear up for Mother’s day out of town. Hope you share the weekend with the ones you love, too. Happy Mother’s day, to those with us and help us daily, and to those who have passed on before us. We remember all that you have done. Have a good weekend everyone!
