My itouch has become a handy little thing to have around my life. It’s gives me those few moments throughout the day where I can grab a few minutes for just me in between one mess to another. My kids take up my entire day, everything I do revolves around them, not that I’m complaining one bit. As a Mom you learn you come last compared to your kids. They are fed first, cleaned first, and so on, it’s just how it happens. When I prepare dinner , the kids are first in mind second to keeping it healthy for us all. It’s alot of work no matter how you do it, even more when I must cut alot of things from dinner even before it’s made so it can be diabetic friendly for my husband. So to say the very least meal planning in this house takes up time, but it doesn’t mean I can’t have fun doing it. 🙂
A couple weeks ago while my kiddos were tossing sand around and pretending to plant weeds in their sand castles I grabbed a moment and found a cool app for my itouch. It’s called iFood assistant.It’s Kraft though, not really sure why they changed it but it doesn’t really matter. I found this recipe which is under the “healthy” portion of their lists. It’s delish! The kids were really into the sweet taste of the Apricot while I tasted hints of mustard. It’s super easy to do, the recipe calls for it to be grilled but I tossed it all together in the oven. 🙂 It would taste great on pork and I bet even some fish !
3 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
