Family Favorites // June 2016

7.01.2016


I decided to share some of our family's favorite things on the last weekend of each month and you readers LOVED it!  So now it's a blog series!  This can be a fun insight into our life and give you some great ideas for your family as well!  Read past FAMILY FAVORITE posts here.


Because Summer is here that means Meat Smoking Season is upon us. Chachi is in his happy place.  He has been outside with his 55 gallon meat smoker for some quality time and has been loving recipes from this book (which I gave him for Father's Day) and we have been watching BBQ Pitmasters reruns on tv.

On your marks...get set...BAKE!!  Oh my gosh, you guys...one of my very favorite shows is returning tonight on PBS!!!  The Great British Baking Show is so perfect. You have to watch it!! I am so obsessive that I run a Facebook Group where we recap the show and cook recipes from each episode. Don't judge me.

This month I read and fell in love the book Counting By 7s.

Chicken and Banjo are both obsessed with watching episodes of Good Mythical Morning on YouTube.  They especially love the food posts called "Will It".

Bonkers has this Gazillion Bubble Hurricane Machine and it is getting a lot of use on our back porch.  I have to admit it is pretty epic.  It is so much fun for her and the little kiddos. I highly recommend it.  We also love grabbing packs of finger paints from Dollar Tree and sending her out to our back deck in her underwear and a stack of paper to paint for hours.

McMudo's favorite thing in life right now is Blaze and the Monster Machines. I finally broke down and bought the DVD since it would sometimes get accidentally erased from our DVR and then disaster would strike.  He also loves Book of Life. I feel like that movie didn't get much press, but is really cool and my kids love it! The music is great!

It's so fun to see our baby get into the things the older kids like.  This past month we have been playing a lot with play-doh.  I bought this tool pack from Amazon and we love it!! I'm not gunna lie, when we first got it I sat down and made myself a perfect little Play-Doh cheese burger.  My good friend has tried every homemade playdoh recipe on the planet and swears by this one. I have just been buying crappy Dollar Store Play-Doh up to this point since I'm too lazy to make my own.

THE ENTIRE FAMILY 

I bought a set of these reusable squeezy packs from Amazon this month and I love them.  They are nice and big and so much cheaper than buying pre-filled squeezies!

We are all still really loving making dinners from this cookbook!  You will LOVE it too!
