Saturday Sidebar: What’s for dinner?

Can you help a mother out?  World Moms Blog writer, Maman Aya asked,

“What’s your favorite go-to dinner dish for the family?”

And you know what? If it’s quick and easy, that’s even better!  Here’s a list from some of World Moms to start the conversation…

Karyn Van Der Zwet of New Zealand writes:
“Home-made hamburgers. Not my favourite as such, but quick and the kids love them.”

Polish Mom Photographer of California, USA writes:
“We did invest in a slow cooker and it’s been an awesome time save.  It makes delicious meals (like barbecue pulled chicken or chili) with almost no effort.  Recipe for BBQ chicken here. ” (more…)

WASHINGTON, USA: Honoring the Salmon

When my big girl gets really excited to learn about something, I love to dive right in with her.  I find it thrilling to explore with her and watch the learning through her eyes.  So a few weeks ago she came home all excited about salmon, I knew I wanted her to understand the life cycle of the salmon, but I also wanted her to learn about the important role of salmon in Native American culture here in the Pacific Northwest, where salmon  not only serve as nourishment, but they are also honored.  (more…)

Eva Fannon (USA)

Eva Fannon is a working mom who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her hubby and two girls. She was born and raised on the east coast and followed her husband out west when he got a job offer that he couldn't refuse. Eva has always been a planner, so it took her a while to accept that no matter how much you plan and prepare, being a mom means a new and different state of "normal". Despite the craziness on most weekday mornings (getting a family of four out the door in time for work and school is no easy task!), she wouldn't trade being a mother for anything in the world. She and her husband are working on introducing the girls to the things they love - travel, the great outdoors, and enjoying time with family and friends. Eva can be found on Twitter @evafannon.

Friday Question: What were your biggest aversions and/or cravings during pregnancy?

This week’s Friday Question comes from World Moms Blog writer Tara B.  She asked our writers,

“What were your biggest aversions and/or cravings during pregnancy?”

Check out what some of our World Moms had to say…

MamaRobinJ of British Columbia, Canada writes:
“I ate a lot of pickles. And ice cream. But not together, because I’m not THAT cliché 🙂  But seriously, we bought big pickle jars every week!

Major aversion for me was salad – anything with greens turned me off completely.

Weird craving was for a McChicken. I don’t eat at McDonald’s and hadn’t for years and years. But I wanted one so badly. I didn’t give in, but that combo of craving and aversion made no sense. Isn’t your body supposed to want good things? Someone suggested it might be salt that made me crave that, but I think the pickles were taking care of that 🙂  In any case, my son (3) has never had McDonald’s and he will actually eat salad, so go figure.” (more…)
