KinderPerfect Review

I’ve discovered being a parent is a complete rollercoaster and being a parent to a toddler is absolute insanity.  There are new adventures everyday and you are put in situations you never thought you would be. A new game, KinderPerfect, captures those moments perfectly. Described as “a timeout for parents” it is a hilarious card game modeled after Cards Against Humanity.  The cards describe real-life situations gathered from actual parents.

First, the game came delivered with a hand drawn note from the creator’s kids. How cute!  I played with my boyfriend and two friends and we had such a great time!

Each player draws 10 white cards. Some of my favorites are below! Each round one red card is pulled and players select the best response from the cards in their hand. You end up with some hilarious combinations.

I can’t wait to pull it out for our next neighborhood moms night – there are 4 of us on the same street all with kids 1 and under. I know they will love it!

I was given a copy of KinderPerfect in exchange for my review.  All opinions are my own!

RICED CAULIFLOWER TACO BOWLS

So I’ve jumped on the riced cauliflower bandwagon. It’s tasty and a much healthier alternative to rice or other grains.  Tonight we made riced cauliflower taco bowls and they were so tasty!  Tacos are a favorite in our house and we eat some version of them at least once a week so they can get a little boring.  Enter the taco bowl.  All the taco fixings thrown in a bowl!  We made ours with ground turkey and topped with black beans, store-bought salsa, cheese, and avocado.  Quick, easy, fun, and bonus – my 15 month old son gobbled it right up!

Many stores sell cauliflower already riced, but if you can’t find it you can easily throw cauliflower florets (1 medium sized head) into a food processor for a couple seconds to get the same effect.  Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan.  Add the cauliflower and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until just tender and slightly browned – about 10 minutes.  Remove to a bowl and set aside.

In the same pan, add another 2 tablespoons of oil and the ground turkey.  Cook until no longer pink and cooked through.  Add taco seasoning and cook per package directions. You can certainly make your own taco seasoning (tons of recipes on Pinterest!), but for convenience I used store-bought.  You can also sub your favorite meat – ground beef, chicken, or pork would all be great.

To serve pile rice in a bowl and top with turkey taco mixture and your favorite taco toppings.  And for the heck of it add some sour cream – you’ve saved calories from the cauliflower so you deserve it!  Enjoy!

WHY I MARCHED

With my mom and stepmom at the Connecticut State Capitol building

Yesterday I had the privilege of standing with women, children, and male allies at the Connecticut Women’s March, lending our voices to the fight against injustice and standing in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington and the 600 events happening worldwide.  There were an estimated 10,000 participants in CT and 1 million worldwide.

I marched for every little girl who has been taught her voice and value are not important.

I marched for every women who has experienced the glass ceiling and had her ideas and contributions undervalued and under appreciated.

I marched for the right to make my own decisions regarding my body and reproductive health.

I marched for the LGBTQ community who are not awarded the same rights as I, a cisgendered woman, am.

I marched for the minority communities and their daily struggle for racial equality.

And most importantly, I marched for my son in the hopes that his future will be a little bit brighter because of my participation and the millions of others across the globe who stood with me.

I feel so honored to have participated in such a historic event but know the fight has just begun.  I will not be silenced until all people are awarded the same fundamental human rights.
