Outfits Lately + A Few Healthy Meals + Easter Books

Probably one of the more random posts I've done in a while, but I wanted to share all of this with you before the week got away from me! 

First things first... Let's talk recent outfits... I know some, if not most of you, don't use the Liketoknowit app and that's ok! You can always shop the outfits I post on my instagram from the tab  'shop my instagram' at the top of my blog. Or, you can wait until I round up all my outfits for the month and do one big post like this one! I linked to all the outfit items below each picture.

And now, a few meals I've made recently that were decent...


CRAB CAKES

So, I used the package of frozen crab meat from Trader Joe's to make these! I just thawed it out and used all the meat from the package (8 oz) and it made about 7 large cakes.

Ingredients:

+ Trader Joe's frozen crab meat (use the whole package)
+ 2 tbsps light mayo (can sub miracle whip, avocado mayo, etc)
+ 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
+ splash of worcestershire sauce (maybe a tsp? I didn't measure!)
+ 1 egg
optional: I added chopped onion and red pepper, gives it great flavor! I sauteed the onion and pepper first before mixing it with the above wet ingredients.

+ 1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used garlic and herd panko bread crumbs)
+ 2 tsps Old Bay seasoning

Directions:

Heat some oil (I used olive oil, but you could do coconut) in a large skillet over medium heat.

Mix together all wet ingredients in a small bowl, then add dry ingredients and mix. Form balls of mixture using your hands. Place in heated skillet and use a spatula to flip and flatten.

Mine took about 3/4 minutes on each side to cook, but you will know when they are done when they are browned and crispy on each side. So yummy!!


Another easy and healthy meal I made was roasted chopped sweet potatoes mixed with roasted yukon potatoes, roasted cruciferous crunch salad mix from Trader Joe's (got this idea from Beth! If you want some easy, yummy, healthy meal ideas you should watch her instagram stories!), and Trader Joe's Chili Lime chicken burgers (from the frozen section). I eat these burgers grilled with some grilled onion and yellow mustard. You could also add a bun or salsa or some other topping to jazz it up! 

I've also been trying to work on meal prepping more so I have my dinners ready for the crazy time of night when I'm trying to feed the kids! It's always hard to cook when they are home and hungry! So I like to have my meals ready for me to just pop in the microwave!

I use these or these meal prep containers from Amazon!



Finally, Easter is around the corner!! Some of you may have caught my little 'what's in the boys Easter baskets' video on my stories the other day. I decided to go ahead and give Camden and Bennett their little books early so we can read them for the next week before Easter! Here are a few of our other favorite Easter books we've been reading:


The Golden Egg Book: This one is vintage from my parents' house! I remember my mom used to put it out a few weeks before Easter on our coffee table and she would read it to me the night before Easter. The illustration in this book is so beautiful! I was so happy to see they still sell it on Amazon!


A few new ones we got this year for the boys: Count on the Easter Pups for Camden and This Lift-a-flap board book for Bennett. 

That was a lot and so random, but sometimes it's easier for me to share this stuff in more detail on the blog! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!!
