One of the highlights of our summer has been our pool time with Aidan. We are fortunate enough to have a pool in our neighborhood, and we enrolled him into two sessions of “Mommy and Me” classes.

Low Sodium French Dip Sandwich

French Dip

I feel very proud of myself for figuring this one out. BUT not proud enough to remember that I had, HA! I was creating a photobook for 2012 (I know it’s late, don’t judge me) and I stumbled onto the picture on Derrick’s phone. Then I remembered how shockingly good this was for low sodium, […]
