Get Crazy with Crazy 8's Crazy Summer Sale!!!

I love crazy 8. I found the store one day in the mall on a whim and seriously bought way too much adorable clothes for my son. They are owned by Gymboree so you know the quality is good, but the prices are a little bit more affordable in my book.
  Warmer weather is quickly approaching, but not as quickly as your kids grew out of last year's clothes! It's time to start stocking up on this season's styles for spring. Luckily, Crazy 8 is offering 20% off markdowns, up to 60% off at Crazy 8 so your kids can get everything they need (and some they don't!) without cleaning out your wallet. That's up to 60% off! The sale starts tomorrow (4/10) for a limited time, so hurry before it's gone!

Tastes Like Summer Meatballs

Spring is FINALLY here! I am so relieved, but having been craving Summer and so has my son. Green grass, playgrounds, grilling, all signs of classic Summer. Although we have yet a few more months until that glorious season, there is no reason we can't trick our mouths into thinking it is Summer?

Last week I made mini meatballs for my son and I. He ate them with his current favorite food- spaghetti, and I put mine into a salad for a creative twist on salad! The meatballs were insanely easy to make (you'll have to excuse my lack of pictures, I am waiting on a new camera and phone) and the entire meal was made in less than 30 minutes.

Grilled Mini Meatballs
1 LB Ground Sirloin
1/2 onion finely diced

Mix your meat together and preheat a grill pan. Each meatball should be about 1 tsp, yep these are small! Roll your meatballs and grill. The cooking time on these little guys are about 5-7 minutes total!!

As I said above, my little guy ate these as is with some pasta and sauce.

The rest of the meatballs I added 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the hot meatballs so the cheese melted.

In a large bowl mix a bag of Italian Blend salad, 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup of chopped dill pickles, and 1/2 cup diced bacon. Add your meatballs and toss with your thousand island dressing! Yes, that is BBQ in a salad!!!

I ate it all week. My son even ate the salad. The meatballs really remind you of the taste of the grill and taste more like a hamburger rather than meatballs.

Now... if only Summer would actually come to New York.
