2016 General Conference Kids Activity- Prophets and Apostles Memory Game


This post contains affiliate links.

General Conference is coming up this weekend!  So for the lesson in my primary class we talked about prophets, so I thought it would be fun to make a game out for it.  It worked out really well for the lesson and I think it will be good for General Conference this weekend too.  I think I will play because I still need to learn the new apostles' names :).

15 Minute Caprese Chicken with Avocado




One of the hardest things about eating healthy for me is that for some reason I think that healthy things are bland and don't taste as good as the other comfort foods that me and my family enjoy.  Well I was definitely wrong about this!!  It's amazing what some simple, natural and fresh ingredients can do to a piece of chicken! My family loves chicken but I wanted something more than just grilled chicken that I knew that everyone would enjoy.  I made this 15 minute Caprese chicken and it was amazing!  It was so good, so easy to make and it will now be our new comfort food!

3 Cheese Chicken Parmesan with Ragu Homestyle Sauce


Finding a meal that everyone in the family likes is not always an easy task, especially for our family.  We have a couple really picky eaters and the second they see something new they immediately start frowning and asking what it is.  Does that happen to anyone else?  Every time for us.  Well this recipe was a new one for our family and they did their usually frowning, until they tried it.  My two picky eaters both went for seconds, I was so pleased!  Everything about this chicken parmesan is great, but the Ragu Homestyle sauce really takes it to the next level!  It is oh so yummy!
