Mount a KFC Popcorn Chicken “Nugget-vention”

Any parent knows that at one point or another in the raising of your children, you go through a phase where they only eat a number of items. It’s funny though, because while each of my kids has their own preferences, they definitely have a limited number of things that they are willing to eat at any time. Do we get lucky and have that random day where one (or more) of them are open to trying something new? Sure. But for the most part…

Tucker’s favorite go-to’s are peanut butter sandwiches (no jelly!), cucumbers, chips & salsa, strawberries and simple desserts like chocolate chip cookies or vanilla ice cream. Lexie likes peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, bananas, cheese sandwiches with mustard, strawberry milk and grown-up type desserts like blueberry muffins or key lime pie. Lilah? She likes cheese sandwiches with mayonnaise, bagels with cream cheese, macaroni with cheese (um, I think we see a trend here…cheese!) and anything chocolate.

The one thing they all have in common though? Chicken nuggets.

So when it comes to making lunch or dinner for my kids I just may have to mount a KFC Popcorn “Nugget-vention”, who’s with me?

Serving the same old thing is sometimes tiring, and making sure that what the kids are eating is healthy as well is always important. Good thing KFC’s Popcorn Nuggets are 100% white meat chicken. I might have even popped a few on my way home from picking up our dinner, because they are also the perfect size to nibble on-the-go.

These little bad boys are the perfect size to do a number of things…

  • Having dinner that has an Asian flair to it but your kids are shy to try stir fry or sushi? Make KFC Popcorn Nugget sushi. A few flour tortilla shells, dipping sauces of your choice, a little lettuce and maybe even some cheese (for Lilah, of course) and you’ll have little “sushi” inspired pinwheels for the kids.
  • Grilling out and skipping the hot dogs for the kids? How about some KFC Popcorn Nugget kabobs instead? Grab a handful of skewers, some Popcorn Nuggets, cubed cheese, and grapes and you’re done in a matter of minutes. I don’t know about yours, but my kids always love eating anything served on a stick!
  • Make movie night more fun (and filling!) when you serve KFC Popcorn Nuggets alongside your popcorn and favorite candy! We do family movie nights almost every Friday night in our house and I’m sure the kids would love this fun alternative to our usual pizza & movie pastime.

We had fun taste-testing our very own KFC Popcorn Nuggets in order to come up with some of these ideas, but what we really can’t wait for is putting these ideas in motion the next time we grab KFC to go.

wiww: a new ‘do

This week’s wiww will be short & sweet.

Rather than feature what I’m actually wearing, I’m going to feature my new ‘do this week. Hair do, that is. Which, when I say it like that, hair do…it makes me wonder if that is the grammatically correct way to spell it? Isn’t it funny how there are some sayings or phrases that you really question the way to write out on paper?

new hair do

Anyways. Story behind my drastic change (I think it pretty drastic at least).

I was perusing Instagram one day, on the search tab where “based on people you follow” or “popular in your …” pictures show up and stumbled upon @onelittlemomma. Let me tell you, I fell in love with her hair and her style instantly. & once I checked out her blog & shop? Yup, it was a done deal. I knew I wanted my hair like hers, I just wasn’t sure if I could be so brave as to chop it off right away. So over the last month or so I’ve eased into it. I had my stylist take a little bit off last month and then finally went all the way last week.

I’ve got to say, short hair is a lot of fun and so easy to do. I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to anything different. I’m stil experimenting with styling it, and I’ve realized I’lll probably have to get it cut every 2-3 weeks to keep it looking right. But pretty much, I’m in love.

…or so they say.

This one sure is.

wiww: comfort in “winter”

I mention, comfort in “winter” with big fat quotation marks around the W word because in Florida we never really have winter. This year though, I’d say its been more seasonable than usual. I’ve definitely worn more sweaters, scarfs and boots than in years past. Which I don’t mind a bit, however, from time toContinue Reading

wiww: one dress, two ways.

  This week, I wore one dress, two ways. Dressed up, dressed down. I love when a piece works like this. Monday morning, I dropped the kids off at school and headed to a weekly Monday morning meeting with one of my clients. When we left the house it was a little cool, enough toContinue Reading

10 on 10. My first this year.

I haven’t done a 10 on 10 in quite some time. Wow, and now that I look back…it’s actually been QUITE some time since I did one. In August I did a 4 on 14 because I forgot all about 10 on 10, but November of 2013 was the last time I did a trueContinue Reading

7 things you can do to take your home from builder-grade to custom-built.

Weekend projects.

The rain was bringing in a very nice cool front, and had brought me a little headache with it. I decided, coffee was needed stat and the urge to make a project list for the weekend came uponContinue Reading
