  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container.

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

Cooking with Kids: Fall Corn Chowder

October 31, 2016

This post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. Opinions are 100% my own.

I’m back with another delicious fall recipe for your family.  Temps are dropping and it’s time to put some soup in rotation.  Once the temps drop, we’ll be spending a lot of time indoors.  This is the perfect time to get the kids involved in the kitchen.  I headed to Target to take advantage of the their buy 3, get one FREE deal on select Unilever items.  I used Knorr Chicken Rice sides to make this delicious corn chowder with Peyton.

Peyton loves when I ask for her help in the kitchen.  She takes pride in the responsibilities that I give her.  Of she loves to stir continuously.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 slices reduced sodium bacon
  • 1/2 cup leek, finely chopped, white parts only
  • 10 ounces peeled butternut squash, finely chopped (I used zucchini)
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 cups fresh corn or thawed, frozen corn
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock – Reduced Sodium Chicken
  • 1 package Knorr® Rice Sides™ – Chicken flavor

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon in large saucepot until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon from saucepot. Set aside and reserve drippings.
  • Cook leek, squash, celery and corn in reserved drippings over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add water and bring to boil then reduce heat to medium low and cook 10 minutes. Remove 2 cups of broth and vegetables and set aside.
  • Stir in Knorr® Homestyle Stock – Reduced Sodium Chicken and Knorr® Rice Sides™ – Chicken flavor. Cover and cook 7 minutes or until rice is tender.
  • Meanwhile, process reserved 2 cups broth and vegetables in blender until smooth; stir into saucepot and cook until heated through. Garnish, if desired, with fresh parsley and bacon.

Preparation time 10 minutes and cooking time 25 minutes.  Makes 8 cups.

*TIP: Nothing beats fresh vegetables – but frozen or canned vegetables save time and can be just as nutritious. Look for no added sugar, fat or salt varieties.

    Yummm I’ll be making this once it gets a little cooler. I add potatoes in mine & the base is a little thicker and creamier. I’m sure yours is healthier 😉
