insanely easy fish stick burritos.

I was craving fish tacos last night. I googled recipes read reviews, but in the end, just wanted something crazily easy (read: I was feeling lazy).  So I asked the Mr. to run to the store on his way home to grab just a few more items I'd need.  It was an experiment.  An experiment that actually resulted in success.  Boo-yah.

The didn't end up being tacos.  More like burritos. Angelic, heaven-in-your-mouth burritos.  Here's the run-down:

Everything was from Walmart (no, not a plug, just the facts).
It only took as long as it takes to cook fish sticks.
My kids didn't appreciate the cole slaw, but they loved it without.

Ready for the, um, recipe? (It's more like a building tutorial)

1/2 package of Van De Kamps fish sticks
1/2 carton of Walmart deli cole slaw
Heinz tarter sauce
tortillas (I use Tortilla Land uncooked tortillas)
While fish sticks are cooking, cook your tortillas (if you're using uncorked tortillas).
When they're done, assemble: tarter sauce down the middle, row of fish sticks, cole slaw, cheese on top.  Roll up and ENJOY!!

See? SO. Stinkin'. Easy. And I love that you can alter and cater it to your family's size + likes!  #winning

Have a great week! --xoxo


somewhat simple // easter placemats

Love me a good blog hop. Especially one where you can grab a bunch of cute free printables! I created these Easter placemats for the kids because I wanted something that would keep them occupied, and I wanted something cute (read: not something that looked like it came from Ihop).  I LOVE how these turned out! Even the Mr. said he wanted one. ;)

Created this for Somewhat Simple's Facebook page.  And I couldn't agree more.

rs temple activity + free printable

[In my church, I am the second counselor in our Relief Society Presidency, which is the counselor over the monthly activities.]  This month, we decided to do a White Night.  In preparation for the Gilbert AZ LDS Temple open house, our goal was just to have an evening to sit together and learn a few things about Temples.  All while having fun as sisters, of course.  ;)

// We asked that each of them wear something white
// We brought a computer + played this Temple Jeopardy Game [ps - I was uber embarrassed by my lack of Temple trivia knowledge]
// We had the sisters share some of their thoughts/stories about how the temple has blessed their lives.
// We ate pretzels + oreos dipped in white chocolate, along with powdered donut holes
// And handed out these:

What I love about these handouts is that it's not just for Relief Society - it's perfect for all ages! Want to make these yourself? Just click HERE to download the word doc I created.  It holds 10 handouts to a page.  All you need to do is cut out, staple a mint on it [I used the Lifesaver Wint-o-green flavor] and you're set!

Hope you have a great week! --xoxo
