Cloth Diaper Swimmis and Swim Coordinates


Morgie is a water baby so finding cute, reliable, and reusable cloth swimming diapers is a must for our family. After reading several online reviews we chose Bummis Swimmis and have been absolutely happy with our purchase. I have so far gotten almost 2 years of use (summer pool seasons and winter vacations) out of these swimmis and they look and perform just as good as when I first bought them. 

Watch for rockbottom online sales from Gymboree's Swim Shop. You will save a ton of money! During Morgie's first year, I planned ahead, purchasing offseason, and was able to snag matching rash guards, shorts, and hats for well under $5 a piece (original prices averaged $20). This year I forgot to do so, and spent a small fortune outfitting him for our March trip to Punta Cana.  I learned my lesson and will be looking for this sale over the next couple of months. Let me know if you want a heads up when the sale begins.

GNG highly recommends picking up a couple of rash guards for babies and small children, especially if you are going somewhere tropical. We felt reassured knowing that the rash guard provided Morgie with an extra layer of defense (paired with sunscreen) against the blazing sun. By the end of the week, he had a healthy color and no sunburn. While on the beach we had several families come up to us and ask where we got the rash guards and wished that they had picked some up. Morgie befriended a cute little girl Julietta, from Argentina, and loaned her one of his for the week. Here's a pic of he and his beach buddy heading for the surf.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at  Seeded at the Table . I think it's right on the money!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.   I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon! First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch! Download the Printer-Friendly Cracklin' Cauliflower Recipe Card

I'm Loving Lidl's Sauces and Marinades

Last Saturday we packed up and headed to our borrowed beach house for the summer.  Before heading out, I stocked up on a bunch of Lidl's Sauces and Marinades for quick and easy meals at the beach. Lidl has a great variety to choose from, and look at the prices!!! So far we have tried Ya Mon Jerk Style Marinade, To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, Nashville Style Barbecue Sauce, and Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. All have been bold and flavorful. Scott especially enjoys the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which definitely has a kick to it.  On our first night I served up this grilled steak marinated in the To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, with a refreshing Watermelon Cucumber Salad, and fresh grilled corn. So good!  The next night I used the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce for BBQ Chicken.  This spicy BBQ chicken went great with grilled fingerling potatoes and a chilled Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad. The then I turned up the heat even more with the Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. .  It reminds me
