Last night, we brought home an old (86?) Party bus!!! It was a school bus back in the day, and you can see the party bus paint peeling away to show the yellow and black. We bought the bus cheap, with plans of turning it into an RV. We hope to possibly full time it in the future! We are so excited to share all updates with you along the way. Check out my Facebook page for videos and pictures too!! A Crazier simple life - our bus adventure. (The name could change at some point)

Easy food that tastes good is my main mission, along with being *sorta healthy*.
I had some cooked, leftover lentils to use up, and a bag of potatoes mocking me...
I decided to cut up the potatoes and bake them with the lentils, a bag of frozen corn, an onion and nutritional yeast. Salted and peppered and dinner is ready about an hour later!!
Simple. Easy. Delicious, and *sorta healthy*

I have this crazy , crazy idea that will just not leave my head. This idea would seem so crazy to any normal person, but I think I am seeing my vision taking up residence in my husband's head as well!
Every now and then, I think I can even see my kids taking on my crazy idea too.
My dream is to sell everything, and move my family into an RV.
We want to travel up to 200 miles in a day, but not so far that we do not enjoy what is around us.
I want to visit every awesome park, every beach, every children's museum and science museum. I want to go on an adventure.
This dream feels like it should be so easy, but I'm not quite reckless enough to risk being homeless and starving.
I have to figure this out.

Yesterday, I found a mason jar with seasoned apples in it in my freezer. I took the apples out and hoped they would still be good. ** it has been longer than I know since I stuck apples in the freezer...**
Today, the youngest Prince( Talon ) has been so grumpy, I was worried my apples would not get made into anything. I took 5 minutes to throw together a quick crisp and froze some bananas in the process.
Dinner tonight is Nice Cream with apple crisp, veggies and hummus!
Yummy. Nutritious. Easy!!
My crisp is a mixture of oats and walnuts with a small (not so healthy) addition of brown sugar. The apples were already sweetened with sugar and spiced to perfection. I tossed the apples into the processor to get them chopped up more, as they still had the peels on. Then, separately I processed the oat mixture.
Half the oat mixture in pan, all apples, other half of oats.
After my kids eat some veggies with hummus, (and quite possibly something else as my 3 yr old sort of runs the show when it comes to what he will eat. Don't judge, it's always *mostly* healthy! I will blend the frozen bananas with a small amount of soy milk to make a "nice cream" and serve it with our crisp!!

I made a trip to Aldi yesterday and filled the back of my van up with (mostly) whole foods for under $130! Today, I made a yummy fruit salad and portioned it out so they have healthful snacks for the week!
I cut up 14 kiwi, 3lb of tangelos, 3 lbs of apples, and one pineapple. I sprinkled the fruit with chia seeds and hemp too! My kids have easy to grab fruit cups now and it is something I can feel great about!
- 1/4 C. raw cashews (soaked in water for several hours and then drained IF you don’t have a high powered blender)

Hop on over to that blog if you want the details, but it is pretty easy if you have ever cooked before.
Our pizza had all sorts of awesomeness on it!
