Bananas, Berries, & Little League

Spring has arrived 😉

We only have the joy of spring weather for a mere month or so here in south Louisiana.  You see we will have nice cool temps for early morn heating up to 80ish degrees during the day.  That is perfect weather.  Sadly it is short lived.  By next month it will be sweltering from the get go!

What are some other signs that spring is in the air other that flip flops and sleeveless tops? 

Allergies.  Hyper school kids.  Snowball stands.  And of course one of our favorites….little league ball!

T-ball & coach’s pitch have arrived.  This of course means that I am one super busy mama!

Two boys = two different ball practices and about 3-4 games per week when the games start.  This is on top of running a household, gym, and work….yikes!

Needless to say dinners have to be quick and simple.  So I give to you tonight.

  1. Looks delicious! Once I can get some berries out here that look like they were ever alive, I would love to try this. Hopefully that will be very soon. 🙂
