Happy Lunch at CDP Global Table

Happy Lunch at CDP Global Table

Mothers need a break from motherhood once in a while. We shouldn’t feel guilty about asking for a bit of time off. No, it’s not being selfish. We need a break, not to get away from the kids, or to escape our responsibilities and the long list of household chores that need tackling, but we must in order to recharge. Sometimes all we need is an hour or two away to unwind and let loose, in order for us to come back a more happy and loving mother.

Two weeks ago, I finally got the mommy break that I needed over a #HappyLunch at CDP Global Table. Together with some Mothers Who Brunch friends, we shared stories of our motherhood highs and lows, while trying dish after dish of mouth-watering goodness.

Coat, Fry, Dip: McCormick Agemono Fry Set & Dipping Sauce

McCormick Agemono Fry Set and Dipping Sauces

When it comes to my kitchen and pantry staples, there are a couple of brands that I have trusted for years. One of them, a brand that I’ve seen my mother use in her own kitchen, is McCormick. From quick-cooking dishes, to feasts that would take hours to prepare, McCormick has always played a role in making our homemade meals special.

McCormick’s Flavor Nation Festival, held last May 13, brought the flavors of East Asia to life, as they launched their latest: Agemono Fry Set and Dipping Sauce. We got to try some authentic Japanese dishes, cooked using the fry sets and sauces, and saw for ourselves how easy they are to recreate in our our own homes.

Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Oh Slime! That sticky, gooey, and stretchy fun stuff. It’s all the rage with kids these days. It’s all over social media, and every other kid has probably tried making their own, at least once. We’ve tried several recipes ourselves. Most with simple ingredients that can be found around the house, and all pretty easy to make. They all made slime, but every one included a pretty messy process.  While the recipe with the household cleaner Borax seems to be the more popular one out there, we’ve stayed away from using it due to safety concerns.

Zoë has been bugging me to let her make more slime for weeks. I’ve been giving her silly excuses and putting it off, because in reality, this momma just can’t deal with all the sticky mess. The last one we made left me cleaning up slimy residue for a while, and worse, it left some food coloring stains on some of her clothes, too! Which is why I was ecstatic to find this new recipe. No Borax, no detergent, no shaving cream, and no food coloring, this 3-ingredient slime recipe is not only easy to make, it’s also a mess-free and safer alternative for kids! And the absolute best part? It’s sparkly and glittery, too. Perfect for my glitter-lovin’ princess!

Check out how we made this easy Mess-Free Glitter Slime!
