A short while ago the Phases of the Moon Music and Art Festival announced the exciting 2015 line up and I sure hope that I will be able to be in attendance this year.

Last year I was very fortunate that I was a part of the media team for the first year of this exciting festival.  I really had the time of my life even though the weather was some of the worst that I have seen at a festival.  The promoters did an amazing job and I will share more with you in a follow up recap where I can show you some of the amazing things about the festival that I have enjoyed.

Isn’t Life Hard Enough??

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

We as moms have it tough.  In fact, while many non-moms won’t agree, I would say that we have the toughest job that there is.  We are completely responsible for making sure that our children are well cared for and that they have everything that they need in order to grow into healthy and successful adults.  One thing is for certain, mom bashing needs to end.

I don’t usually make posts about this stuff but lately there seems to be more and more mom bashing from moms who are supposed to be on our side.  Seriously, if you can not stand up for other moms then how the hell do you expect us all to make it through the day.

Earlier this week, a Florida ICING store manager was caught mom bashing in the worst way.  She posted a picture of a mom babywearing her child and then blasted her for her choices as a mom.  I personally do not feel that the mom has a need to defend herself.  I have a 7 year old who I still occasionally wear sometimes when she is tired.  However this mom was wearing her 5 year old and had her toddler in a stroller.  The manager did a few things that I feel are completely unacceptable.

She posted a picture of someone else’s child online on social media without her permission!!!

That’s right, she took it upon herself to snap this picture which was distasteful.  However when she chose to post that picture on a social media website without the mother’s permission it went in a completely different direction.  I am seriously appalled by this happening and it freaks me out to think about someone posting pictures of my children without my permission.

However that is just the start of this.  She used very crass language and demeaned the mom for her choice.  Then she admitted to being a step parent.  Isn’t being a step parent hard enough?  Why would you ever question or judge another mom’s decision to raise a child.

Can’t We ALL Just Get Along!!

I will admit that I have a diverse group of mommy friends.  I have friends who are far harsher than I am.  I have a tough love approach sometimes that might seem harsh to other moms.  I have mom friends who vaccinate and those who do not.  I have mom friends who breastfeed and those who could not.  I have mom friends who babywear and those who choose not to.  I have mom friends who cloth diaper and those who think that cloth diapering would be gross.  I have mom friends who stay at home and those who work full time.  I have mom friends who feed their children only organic foods and those who often feed their children processed and/or fast food.  I have mom friends who pierce their infant’s ears and those who never would.  I have mom friends who had natural unassisted home births, those who have had c-sections, those who have had minimal medical interventions, and those who have had the full treatment with meds and epidurals in the delivery room.  I have mom friends who are devout Christians and choose to take their children to church each week and those who do not believe in God.

You know what the beauty of this is?  That we can all get along.  I do not have to worry about my mom friends chastising me for how we are different.  In a world that seems to pray on differences, my mom friends and I have found a support and love for each other based on the common grounds that we are moms.

So let’s rally together.  Let’s stand together as moms in love and admiration rather than choosing to chastise and treat one another poorly.  In a world where there are few things good going on, let’s be a light to one another and stand in the amazing sisterhood that brings us together as mothers.  We are all just trying to be the best that we can be and if we work together that is only going to help us all to be a bit more successful in the end.

New Mexico Style Hormel Chili Cheese Baked Potato Cup

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

Living in the Southwest is a fantastic region for food diversity. In New Mexico, we love our green chile and pair it with pretty much every single thing we eat. When we have Hormel Chili for dinner, that doesn’t change. Whether we enjoy some chili dogs or some Frito pie, topping it with some diced green chile is a must. My family wanted something fun and different and so we took a simple idea and added a is delicious. Baked potatoes are hearty and versatile. And who doesn’t love cheese? So, the Hormel Chili Cheese Baked Potato Cup was born.

It was really a basic concept of a delicious baked potato that we often have with grilled steaks. Our baked potatoes often have several different toppings. Cheese, sour cream, onions, bacon, green chile, and of course Hormel Chili. It is fun to build the baked potato how the kids want it, but sometimes a whole potato is way too much food for their little tummy, and our own. So, we decided to downsize and came up with this easy to make recipe that are individual size portions that still pack all the awesome flavors of the toppings. Grab your coupon and save $1 on Hormel Chili and follow these simple steps with just these few ingredients and your troops will be screaming for more!

New Mexico Style Hormel Chili Cheese Baked Potato CupNew Mexico Style Hormel Chili Cheese Baked Potato Cup

The ingredients for this recipe ae very few and can even be made fewer depending upon your tastes. Start with these few items to begin:

  • 1 can Hormel Chili (with or w/out beans)
  • 2 ½ cups hashbrowns (frozen thawed or fresh)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • ½ cup sliced green onions
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup bacon bits
  • 1 can diced green chile (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Now that you have all your ingredients, get ready by greasing up a muffin tin with canola oil or coconut oil. Preheat your oven to 350 and gather your ingredients. (*Hint: toss your muffin pan in the oven about 5 minutes before you start building your cups.)
  • In a small saucepan, empty Hormel Chili into pan and heat on low-medium heat until slightly bubbling and turn off. Leave the Hormel Chili covered on the burner to keep warm.
  • In your muffin pan, fill each cup about half way full with the hashbrowns. Drop a hearty spoonful of the Hormel Chili on the hashbrowns in each cup. Top the Hormel Chili with about ½ Tbsp of diced green chile and ½ Tbsp of bacon  in each cup.
  • Bake in your 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove your pan and sprinkle with the sharp cheddar shredded cheese. Then, return your cups to the oven for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and melted.
  • Remove the cheesy chili cups and set aside to cool for about 5-7 minutes or until able to handle with utensils when removing.
  • Serve alone on a plate or with your entrée and let the troops add the sour cream and onions as they desire.
  • Grab a fork, dig in, and wait for the compliments to flood your ears!

This easy New Mexican twist on a traditional idea is definitely a fun way to mix things up this summer. If you wanted, using aluminum as a buffer, we could easily throw this on the grill next to those juicy steaks we spoke about at the start. Hormel chili gives the Potatoes that perfect and signature spice that only Hormel can give. Adding the green chile makes it our own here in New Mexico. So, give this recipe a try, leave us some comments, and if you have any other ideas, feel free to share! Enjoy and Bon Appetit!

Be sure to swing by Hormel’s Website .

As alwasy be a social butterfly and check out Hormel on Facebook  and of course save yourself some money by grabbing your Hormel on Facebook.

Summer Camp Music Festival Guide — 10 Things Every Dad Needs in His Backpack at Summer Camp @SummerCampFest #SCamp15

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure
As a father and follower of the music scene, it is important to be well prepared to ensure that both you and your kids have a great and memorable festival. I have found that stuffing the following items in my backpack reduce trips back to camp and keep everyone happy in most cases.
IMG_1377

Water and Juice

 I carry a CamelBak backpack and will stuff some juice boxes or pouches in it in the case of sudden misbehavior. If we sit down and have a drink we can generally diffuse the situation.
IMG_1403

Glow Sticks

 Who doesn’t love glow sticks.

Protective Ear Wear

We need to protect our kids from damaging their ears so they can have a long future of enjoying music and continuing to create a positive experience at music festivals.

Small Toys, Playing Cards, or Dice

Preferably something cheap that they have never played with before. This will keep their attention longer and won’t be a tragedy if they lose it while you are watching a band.

iPhone

A brief game of Minecraft or Jetpack Joyride can often times allow you to finish that concert that your kids have obviously become bored with.

 

Insect Bands

Wearable insect protection will ensure they are not devoured by insects causing an uncomfortable and long bedtime.

Sunscreen

We need to keep them from getting a sunburn to prevent the aforementioned long bedtime.

Camera

Don’t forget to grab lots of pictures of the memory that you shared.

Schedule/Map

Make sure to protect this as my kids seem to take delight in ensuring that gets lost.

Snacks

Something like peanuts or a snack mix is perfect. Something that won’t be messy or be crushed in your backpack.
Most of all, have patience which will help you have a great and positive experience that you and your kids will never forget.

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure
This year looks to be another great music line up that will be sure to create some good memories for you and your kids.

There are also many activities to do with the kids to keep them entertained and happy. Plus, the extra activities generally makes bedtime easier and faster.
Kids Camp has always been a family favorite and they generally get to express their creativity and create some unique crafts, see interesting people, and play with new camp-oriented toys.
Head to the Soulshine tent and check out a number of activities such as Stepping Into the Hoop, Victor Wooten’s Nature set, Speakeasy art center, Live Art Gallery, or Amazeballs.
Be sure to get some relaxing time with the kids at your camp with kites, frisbee, or glow stick construction of something you can haul to their late night show before bedtime.

Summer Camp Music Festival Guide — Feeding Your Kids at Summer Camp @SummerCampFest #SCamp15

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

“Mom, I’m hungry.”

100_0617

“Hey mom, I need a snack!”

Anyone else dread these words from their children’s mouths?  If so, I will promise you that you are not alone.  I HATE hearing from my children that they need a snack and are hungry because if it were up to them they would never eat a meal and would live completely off of crappy snacks.  (Sadly they like all of the bad stuff that I HATE buying for them.)

When it comes to being at Summer Camp Music Festival I will admit that I like to plan ahead for my kids.  For one they are not going to eat a meal sized snack so vendors are generally out when it is snack time.  For another they are kids so, while there is tons of kid friendly foods (more about that keep reading!!), there are times that they just want their favorite.

I try to choose goods that are not going to have damaging effects on the environment and most of the time we use BPA free containers and such for everything but sometimes I need to be more convenient.  I also like to feed them whole foods or organic snacks but sometimes I relax and just pick up their favorites.  Festival time is one of those times when I let them choose what they want and let them have all of their favorites.

Suggestions for Feeding Kids at Summer Camp

Feeding your kids at Summer Camp is a necessity.  How you do it is up to you.  90% of the time in life we eat whole healthy foods.  90% of time we choose snacks that we can put in recyclable bags and containers.  Summer Camp is not one of those times for us.  I am all about convenience when it comes to Summer Camp and feeding my children.  I want it to be easy.  So I choose a lot of convenience based products.

I am a list person so for those of you are like me, creating lists is going to help you stay on top of things.  If you are not a list person the following “lists” might annoy you.  I prefer to group my lists into categories.  Then I prefer to list the things that I need to buy and pack.  I will admit that I do allow the kids to eat some of their less than healthy favorites (so please no judgements!).  These are not foods that they get to eat often.

Breakfasts

*Mini Cereal Boxes (For some reason these are one of my kids most exciting things about camping…weird, huh?)

*Fruit (I will have a big bowl of cut up watermelon and a big bowl of mixed berries and grapes this weekend!)

Lunches

*Lunchables (I know, I know…these are awful but my kids have honestly not had one in over three months so I don’t feel bad letting them have a few this weekend!)

*Pasta Salad

*Veggies and Dip

*Fruit

*Sandwich stuff

Dinners

We eat dinner at the festival because that means that we do not have to pack grills or anything to cook on.  This is one thing that we take a little extra money for.  The convenience alone is worth spending a bit and one great thing about Summer Camp is that there is a wide variety of foods that are healthy and affordable.

Snacks

*Snack Packs (I get the small cracker and cookie snack packs because they are easy to throw in the kids’ bags and take with us anywhere in the festival.)  Remember to teach your kids not to litter.

*Small Bags of Chips (Yes I bought a big box of the small bags of chips as well.)

*Goldfish (I know that these are not that healthy either buy all four of my children love them and I try to avoid buying them as a general rule of thumb but this time they are a special treat for them.)

Drinks

*Gallons of Water (my kids each have a few water bottles and a Camelbak that we will take with us)

*Gatorade/Powerade/Sports Drink (each kiddo will have a water bottle that is dedicated to Gatorade throughout the festival)

*Juice (I prefer to take in jugs and use the Gatorade bottles for this.  I do pick out bottles without a straw because I do not want to have to clean out a straw or mouthpiece that has been used for anything but water.)

*Sprite (My kids do not get soda very often but they love it so why not offer them a little special treat each day that we are enjoying the festival.)

Remember that it is very important that your kids stay hydrated.  Keep them drinking all day long and make sure that they are getting enough to drink.

Treats

Okay, so who doesn’t love a treat every once in a while?!?  I know that I still enjoy a treat from time to time.  These are the treats that I take for my kiddos.  Keep in mind that you do not want to take treats that could melt so that is a lot of the reason for the specific treats that I choose.

*Twizzlers

*Chewy Sweet Tarts

*Blow Pops

*Tootsie Roll Pops

*Caramel Apple Pops

*Tootsie Rolls

I will admit that mommy really likes candy after having a few drinks, so on my late night some of these might be mommy treats too!

Tips for Parents of Kids with Allergies

I am hoping to publish an allergy guide that can serve not only for this festival but that I can pull from for pre-festival coverage in the future.  I attempted to figure this out beforehand but it was kind of impossible.  I will be walking around to food vendors on Thursday night and Friday so that I can get this allergy guide posted and linked up to the social media feeds.  This should help parents who are worried about allergies and you can access it from your phone to have on hand.

Know What is Being Served

*If your child has severe allergies you might want to ask if that food is served from the vendor.  Cross contamination at a festival is very likely and no parent wants to deal with an epi-pen level emergency at a festival.  So it is my opinion that if a food is served by a vendor that you choose to not feed your child food from that vendor.

Don’t Forget to Ask About How It Is Cooked

*Ask how the items are cooked.  If your child has a peanut allergy there is a chance that foods could still be cooked in peanut oil (actually our zoo cooks all fried foods in peanut oil so it is something real that you have to be aware of!).  This is a HUGE lesson that you should learn now to avoid issues in the future.

Ask Staff if They Have Eaten the Allergen in Question

*This is a question that might feel odd and will feel unnatural to you.  When it comes to figuring out how to avoid your child having an allergic reaction at the festival you have to be proactive.  You have to be willing to figure out everything that you can about the food being cross contaminated with something else.  Taking this extra step is really going to minimize any issues that you might have.

Summer Camp Music Festival Guide — Babywearing vs Strollers — The Good and the Bad that You Should Know @SummerCampFest #SCamp15

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

We all know that I am a HUGE fan of babywearing but I am not a big fan of strollers.  I have been lucky enough in the past to have both of these handy items at Summer Camp  and I will explain the good and bad of both!!  To be honest I use both daily when I am at the festival and my husband does too.

Summer Camp logo

This year when it comes to strollers I will be taking the Britax BAgile with us.  This is a handy little stroller but I do feel something with wheels that were just a bit bigger would be easier on the festival grounds.

As for baby carriers there are three that will be making their rotations throughout the festival.  I have a Toddler Tula, a Toddler Lenny Lamb wrap conversion, and a MOM Tai.  I LOVE all of these for different reasons so depending on the time of day, you will see one or the other.

All About Babywearing at Summer Camp Music Festival

Babywearing Pros

*If you are traveling where you have to carry everything in to the festival grounds then it is really convenient to put your baby on and walk through the gates.

*Baby carriers take up very little room when you are packing.

*Babywearing is a great way for you to dance and let baby sleep during shows.

*Even older kids can appreciate “baby”wearing when you are walking around for long periods of time.

*Touching your baby and being close to your baby is good for you both.  Plus it will help ease your little one’s anxieties if they are not used to being in a crowd.

*Babies are happier when they are being carried and held.

*Your baby is going to develop faster.  It is proven that their central nervous system has benefits from being held.

*Your baby can feel your cues when you are nervous or happy so they know who to interact with safely.  This can be HUGE in a big crowd of people.

*You can comfort your baby when you are wearing them.

*Plus it is going to be way easier on you all the way around if the weather should turn a little gray and there is mud.  Strollers suck in the mud!!  Even the best ones that I have owned suck in the mud!!

So as you can tell I will be babywearing (well technically childwearing and toddlerwearing) all weekend long.  I have my three carriers ready to pack and I even have a special carrier for a new friend that my littles are all too big for.

All About Strollers at Summer Camp Music Festival

Stroller Pros

*Strollers can haul other stuff for you…toys, picnic blankets, small coolers with water and snacks for your kids, and a change of clothes for your kids.

*Strollers help you maneuver through crowds, generally no one wants to be the person that ran into the stroller!

*Strollers are a comfortable place for your little ones to sit.

*Strollers have protection from the sun and other weather elements like rain.

*Strollers can be a great place where your little one can take a nap while you are walking around.

*Strollers offer you a break if you have a kiddo that just wants to be held or worn all of the time.

While I will admit strollers are not my favorite, I will be bringing my go to stroller with me to Summer Camp.  I also will have the three baby carriers and a collapsible wagon (daddy’s favorite!).

I can’t wait to see you there and if you see me please come say hi to us!!

Grilling With The NEW Char-Broil Kettleman Grill

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Char-Broil for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m so excited for the spring and summer months because it means more time outside and more evenings grilling with family and friends.  We grill out at least once a week if not more and 90% of the time we have someone over.  For our family and friends, our house is known as the place to stop on Saturday night if you want a bite to eat and hang out for a bit.

Dinner time is the one time we’re together as a family, so we do our best to make it as memorable as possible.  Which is why we start grilling as soon as the weather allows.  

Grilling makes family time lasts that much longer – dads grilling, kids are jumping on the trampoline, and lucky mom gets to run back and forth to make sure everyone has everything they need, and the kids are being good.  Which is why I’m excited to tell you about Char-Broils New Kettleman 22.5” Charcoal Grill, it’s the perfect centerpiece for your family grilling experiences. 

Do you want to know something crazy?  It’s been more than 65 years since Char-Broil brought the first charcoals grill to the market.  As many of you are away, Char-Broil has done amazing things over the years by introducing an outstanding series of innovations that we now consider standard among the modern grills.

Temperature Control – I love the super-sized cool to touch damper on the Char-Broils New Kettleman 22.5” Charcoal Grill lid, which makes heat management easy.  Ther is events around the body of the kettle to allow the air to feed the fire from all sides.  It provides an even heat for the cooking surface.

Flare-Up Control – A porcelain coated no-fall-through grate allows charcoal flavor through while keeping flames away from food. Wood chips can be thrown on the great and small foods like shrimp or asparagus will never fall into the fire.

Charcoal Control – Yepie, this bad boy is designed to grill twice as many burgers.

Ash Control – Who doesn’t want a grill with Ash Control?  This grill has a slide-in porcelain coated ashtray that’s tight against the grill to make cleanup and maintain easily. 

Stability Control – What’s not to love about the wide stance, easy mobility, heavy-gauge steel legs add stability. There’s a bottom shelf, which doubles as a holder for the grill’s cooking grate and other accessories. 

Hinged Latching Lid – The Kettleman also has a hinged latching lid; it will never need to touch the ground while you’re grilling which makes things easier than before.
