delicious {corn} fritters | EAT

corn-fritters-rae-ann-kelly-9

now that school has started, i get to spend a few days a week (when i’m not working) with the ham above (no sibs) which i think qualifies me as the luckiest person alive. however, i would like to go on the record and say, i’m not sure that one takes any less energy than two seeing as how he becomes this hilarious, go-go baby when his siblings are away and a chill wallflower when they are around . it’s been interesting to watch and has made for some amusing errands and outings, just the two of us.

earlier this week griffey and i headed over to my friend kim’s house to catch up, play, and make corn fritters in her (nearly complete) remodeled kitchen. so jelly. her and her husband have done an amazing job which made cooking fritters that much more fun.

corn fritters are a great veggie side for dinner, after school snack, or happy hour app. (recipes below)

corn-fritters-rae-ann-kelly-1

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon oil, for sautéing
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • a couple pinches of salt (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • oil to cook fritters

TO MAKE: heat oil and sauté corn and peppers for a few minutes. remove from heat and transfer to a medium mixing bowl.

prep cilantro, whisk eggs and add to a mixing bowl with a little salt.

stir to combine.

add enough oil to a non-stick skillet to cover the base and heat over medium. drop large spoonfuls (i use my 1/4 measuring cup) of the corn mixture into the pan, 1 to 3 at a time (depending on size). cook until browned (about 2 minutes) and flip to cook the other side.

lay on a paper towel or wax paper (paper side up) to drain and cool before serving!

with the exception of griffey, the fam devours these fritters.

grif just laughs at me for eating my veggies i guess… good thing he doesn’t know what’s in the green juice he chugs at brekkie. guess who will be laughing in the morning!? mwahahaha.

now that we are well into the fall & back to school season, is there something in particular that you are really enjoying?

other than time with my littlest, i must admit i’ve gone over my budget at starbucks – those pumpkin spice lattes get me every time!

#ootd soccer mom | WEAR

i have been waiting my entire adulthood for two things 1) to watch my kids (and their friends) play sports and 2) for an updated version of the hammer pant (please tell me i’m not alone!).

soccer-mom-1

This weekend it seemed, all my dreams came true when i got to watch ozzie’s varsity baseball game on friday and espen’s soccer game saturday all while wearing these slouchy sweats. (these are super cute too)

it was nice to be comfy and relaxed (and still on trend) without embarrassing my kids while i cheer from the sidelines.

have you tried the slouchy pant style? i think next i’ll need to try a pair of trousers.

kids-sports-instajust a couple iphone snaps from the weekend. i swear i was made to do this. at least when it’s not raining.

hope you had an amazing weekend!

zucchini bread pancakes | EAT

the kids might make all kinds of faces (and noises) when they see you add shredded zucchini to perfectly good pancake batter, but they will be kissing the cook after the first bite!

zucchini-pancakes-rae-ann-kelly-4

the recipe above (from the monthly spread) calls for gluten free pancake mix, but you can use whatever brand you like or make it from scratch using this recipe.

i don’t love cooking breakfast in the morning (it just seems wrong to start the day with hand dishes!) but the hubs and kids are constantly making requests so it’s nice to have fun recipes to choose from.

do you have any favorite brekkie dishes?

saved by the trench (coat) | WEAR

rae-ann-kelly-trench-coat-3

i’m always on the hunt for pieces i can add to my wardrobe that are simple and versatile, but that also make me look (& feel) put together without actually requiring me to be put together.

i mean, (side note) i have a hard enough time getting myself ready and out the door on time and then you add little people to the mix and some mornings it seems almost impossible, but that’s a whole other blog post.

rae-ann-kelly-trench-coat-2

it’s those kinds of mornings that makes this trench just the thing i need to grab from my closet when things get chaotic. i can throw it on over jeans (even the ones that have a paint stain on the butt from this little fiasco) or leggings, a tee and a pair of flats.

on the catwalk : KIDS back to school fashion show

kid-fashion-showthe kids typically put on mini fashion shows as they come home with cool new duds for back to school, but this year i thought it would be fun to step it up a notch and put on one big fashion show.  so i’ve collected a few pops (glow in the dark bracelets and funny glasses) that i thought would be fun and a roll of disposable table runner to use as the runway.

now all we have to do is make a playlist… any suggestions!?

do you guys do back to school fashion show!?
