Disney Inspired Treat: Mickey Soft Pretzels

Disney Inspired Treats_Mickey Soft Pretzels National Pretzel Day April 26

April 26 is National Pretzel day and today my family is celebrating with these delicious Mickey soft pretzels I baked up yesterday.  Judging by how many my husband enjoyed, I think this will definitely have to be a repeat recipe in our house.

Our den has been rather neglected since moving in. It is a multi-purpose room that houses our home office and computer, as well as serves as a guest room when we have company.  Since we don’t often have overnight guests, it usually just ends up as a catch-all for the odds and ends of projects I am working on.  It has never felt like a very cohesive space and in order to make it more finished and homey, I decided to hang some curtains and finally get some artwork up on the bare walls.

Mickey and Minnie Disney Savings Jars

Mickey & Minnie Disney Savings Jars

In January I posted about the calendar sticker system we have implemented to reward our kids for good behaviour and help them save money for our November trip to Walt Disney World.  I have begun paying the kids out monthly and wanted a cute place for them to start saving their money.   I am proud to share these Mickey and Minnie savings jars I came up with!

National Waffle day is coming up on March 25 and what better way to celebrate then with Mickey Mouse shaped waffles?  If you have a traditional shaped waffler, it will work, but there is just something magical about a Mickey Shaped Waffle – especially smothered in an amazing bananas foster sauce!

Unlocking Magic at the Disney Store

Unlocking Magic At The Disney Store_Store Opening Ceremony

It should come as no surprise that one of the kids and I’s favorite stores is the Disney Store.  Although there are two here in Edmonton, we don’t seem to get to the malls that often and that means the kids are always excited to spend a good chunk of time checking out the new merchandise and playing in store.

Several months ago I hit up the mall while the kids were in school, and just happened to walk by first thing as the Disney Store was doing a special store opening ceremony.  I learned this is something they do daily and have been meaning to take the kids, so last week my daughter and I finally went to see what it was all about.  She was still too young for the Lego Monthly Mini Build I had her brother signed up for that evening, so I figured this was something special her and I could do that day.

Disney Inspired Treats: Tomato Basil Soup

DIsneyInspiredTreats_Tomato Basil Soup Homemade Soup Day February 4

It can get mighty chilly in Edmonton in the winter months and that has me wanting soup.  Since National Homemade Soup Day just happens to be February 4, I thought for my February Disney inspired treat I would make up a pot inspired by one of the delicious meals I had while in Disneyland Park: the Jolly Holiday Combo.  This meal of tomato basil soup and a grilled cheese sandwich is served at the Holly Jolly Bakery and is a nice change from the hot dogs, pizza, French fries and other sugar laden goodies we ate way too much of throughout the park.  It might not fit most the standard definition of a “treat”, but it is a definite step up from the can of tomato soup I usually heat up on the stove.

Red Roses to Remember Dad

Remembering Dad with Red Roses

Today marks 15 years since my dad unexpectedly passed away during the night from complications of pneumonia.  I am still sad that I never got to say a final good-bye, but also relieved that he passed quickly and there was no prolonged suffering.  We all knew he had extensive health issues, but I don’t think any of us were expecting to say good bye so soon.
