Cucumber Sandwiches

 

This is seriously the easiest thing you may ever make for an appetizer for tea parties, potlucks, or random get togethers. It's also great when you are looking for ways to use your garden cucumbers. (Seriously, I have so many cucumbers!)


Ingredients

Party Entertainment Bread
8 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Mayo or Miracle Whip
1 tsp Dill Weed
Cucumbers


Instructions

This is easiest if you have a mixer, but if not, microwave cream cheese for a minute to make it soft.

  1. With a mixer, mix together cream cheese, Mayo/Miracle Whip, garlic salt, and dill weed.
  2. Spread as much or as little mixture that you want over party bread. For my sandwiches, I used Jewish Rye and Pumpernickel cocktail size bread. If you can't find the small square loaves, you can cute regulars into squares.
  3. Place Cucumber slice on top. 

Great alternative to cucumber slices are tomatoes, cheeses, and peppers! 

You can also use left over mix as a dip for your favorite veggies, veggie pizza, or even place into some jalapenos for a popper. The dip is very versatile.




Conclusion

This great and easy to make snack is perfect for any entertainment that you'd like to host. It's a light, cool treat, and is a crowd pleaser.

The last time I made up this tray was for a game night with me and four grown men and all but three sandwiches were eaten and that was just one of the many things I served that night.

Great Planner for Kids With ADHD


When I was growing up, I spent a lot of my time in school socializing and getting distracted by anything that seemed more interesting than what was on the chalk board. I got okayish grades because I tested very well, but I was very bad at getting my homework done, mainly because I would forget that I even had it. Had I been able to remember it, perhaps I would have been a straight A student. 

When I was in college, I thought things would get better. I knew I was smart and a hard worker, but if someone were to observe me, they'd probably think I was lazy and a procrastinator. I would come to class, eager to learn more about a subject at hand, only to be disappointed because my other classmates would be turning in an assignment that I had completely forgot about.

Peace Pirates Book Review and Giveaway


I'm the mother of three kids, ages 10 and under. With the Corona Virus pandemic causing schools to be let out early, we've all been together, nonstop. My kids haven't had much of an issue staying home and have adjusted to remote learning easier than I had ever expected. Life has been wonderful and such a walk in the park.... Hahahaha! Who here believed me?

My kids have actually been viewing this time as quite the adventure and haven't really minded being home. Me, however, I've had some anxiety and mood swings since being home. With my husband working at home, too, I have to get the kids to do their homework and play nicely without interrupting video meetings by screaming like banshees. This time has been stressful and sometimes maniac mommy emerges only to be quickly stuffed back in, kind of like a mommy Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.

 I couldn't have gotten the opportunity to review Peace Pirates, written by Ashley Willis, at a better time.

Lasagna Frittas




I first discovered lasagna frittas when my husband and I were celebrating an anniversary or was it a birthday? Well whatever it was, we were celebrating something, so we decided to splurge and order an appetizer tray and we both fell in love the frittas so much, I had to find a recipe to try it myself. 

But, enough about me! I know that what you really want is the recipe that I've adapted over time and it's super easy to make too!

Parenting- Quick Reaction, Wrong Response


My oldest just turned ten and my youngest is five. I'm at the point in my life when my parenting tactics have to be readjusted to fit the appropriate situation without losing my credibility with them.

Having a ten year old can start to be a little trying since he's becoming more private and doing things on his own. It won't be long before he's hanging out with his friends more than hanging out with us and peer pressure is going to be something that he's going to have to deal with and there are going to be choices that he's going to make that are going to be good or bad.

As parents, we're going to want to maintain control, but at some point, our kids are going to have to learn to do things by themselves, and we're going to have to let them so they can grow up to be responsible adults.

Sometimes, the way that we handle things can have a lasting impression and the way that we do it can have positive or negative consequences.

Hello! My name is Brittany and I'm a writer, obviously. As a stay-at-home mom, there are many things that I have to figure out in order to run a house that appears to be more sane than insane. It's not easy to be a parent and I hope that this blog is able to encourage other moms out there to live life happily and to understand that there can be mishaps along the way, but those mishaps don't define you and anything can be overcome with perseverance and will.
