Recipe Round-Up: Flat Out!

This week has been super hectic. And here I thought that my days would slow down after Spring soccer season. Boy was I wrong. {I'm drinking a bottle glass of wine as I'm writing this}

I'm all about quick and tasty weeknight meals. The last thing I want to do when I get home from work is spend hours cooking. This momma needs to rest too! 

Lately, since we've changed a lot of our eating habits- I've gravitated towards healthier options, especially for dinner. 

I have been loving these Flat Out Flatbreads. They are great for wraps and only 100 calories and 9g of protein! YAAS! My favorite way to use them is as a pizza crust. Flatbreads make a great lunch or dinner meal. 

I usually do a pesto sauce with veggies and goat cheese {for me} die for! I'll add chicken for the Hubs and M's. This time I went a different route and tried my hand at a shrimp good! 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. You can use a pizza pan or do like I did, line a cookie sheet with foil. Easy clean up! 
I cooked the shrimp on the stove top until throughly cooked. I seasoned with ground pepper and a vegetable seasoning I had on hand. You can season to your liking. 

I removed the tails after they were done cooking. I used about 6-7 medium shrimp per flatbread. 

For the base I used 2 teaspoons of alfredo sauce. As for my toppings I used: a handful of baby spinach, green bell pepper and red onion. OH-don't forget the shrimp! Before popping in the oven I sprinkled shredded mozzarella cheese. 

Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until it's crispy. 

Y'all. This is soooo good! 
I love being able to use any toppings I'm craving and customizing to what others like or don't like. For anyone wondering...M ate the same thing, without the bell pepper and red onion that is. I added more shrimp to his since it didn't have the other veggies in it. 

Let me know if you all try this. This is a great family meal that can also be prepared as a family! M loves to make his own pizza and add his toppings. Enjoy!!

Mother's Day Surprise!

As much as I love getting pampered and spoiled on Mother's Day...I get all the hugs and "love you mom" throughout the year and that's enough for me. Being able to say that I am a mom and knowing that my little guy is healthy is reason enough to be thankful.

We never really do anything extraordinary on Mother's Day so it really was no different than any other day. The Hubs and I don't get each other extravagant gifts either...we have everything we need and prefer adventure memories over material items. However, this year I was given a new...drumroll... camera! Y'all I have been wanting this camera for ages. It definitely wasn't something I was expecting to receive either.

New camera = vlogs! I cannot wait to start and connect with you all a bit more this way. I will be vlogging mainly on the weekends, starting on Friday afternoons. You'll get a little extra glimpse into our daily life and a look into our silly adventures.

The first video will be LIVE this coming Monday, a week from today. Be sure to subscribe to stay up do date! You can find my YouTube channel here

Leave a comment on what kind of videos you would like to see...whether it's family related, product reviews, beauty, fashion, mommy/son name it!
