All About Summer Camp Guide – 2017

All About Summer Camp Guide – 2017

Singing  “It’s summer” in my Olaf voice from Frozen!

Can you imagine another school year has just whirled on by and while I am rejoicing for the break of not having to iron uniforms (I absolutely HATE ironing) I also cringe at the thought of now having to find a safe and fun environment for my kid during the summer break (again)! With that said take a look at the All About Summer Camp Guide!

Let’s start with the free camps, simply because its free and free is always AWESOME!

Bahamas National Trust has an amazing Eco Camp in Andros from July 7th – 14th your child can learn about marine life and how important preservation is to our country, among other amazing facts.

Kingdom Life Church is offering a FREE music camp for ages 5 years to 12 years old.  Learning music improves academics, boost self esteem and is just down right fun!

The Cat Island Accordion and French project is hosting its very own day camp and yes there are accommodations for off islanders. While there is a registration fee the camp itself is free and runs from July 17th -31st.

The Royal Bahamas Police and Defense Force also host Free Camps every summer. This year camps begin June 26th – August 4th. . You can collect registration forms at your nearest station.

A Slice of Little Caesar

A Slice of Little Caesar

What started out as a routine Saturday filled with paying bills and grocery shopping turned into a slice of fun. I am still not sure if it was a grand opening but Little Caesars sure turned up. This stop wasn’t planned at all, in fact I had no idea they were even open.

The popular pizza brand Little Caesar has made its way to the sunny isle of the Bahamas, Nassau to be specific. Tucked  away  just between The Nassau Guardian and Xtra Value food store you’ll find Hot – N – Ready pizzas starting at only $7!

Ok first things first, the food. I know you want to know about the food! Despite the slogan, no pizza was ready upon my arrival. But, if this was indeed a Grand Opening I will give these guys the benefit of the doubt, they must have been slammed with customers and I completely understood. The attendant was more than pleasant and promised me a Hot – N – Ready pepperoni pizza in 10-15 minutes or less.

The time was easily spent. Unbeknownst to me a mini fair was going on right outside that was hidden away from the street entrance. This distraction would more than help me to kill time (clever, clever Little Caesar’s).

Equipped with balloon animals, bounce house, popcorn, snow cones, party bags and yes the Little Caesar Mascot, my kids were more than entertained. At one point I was so engaged we almost forgot about the pizza, ALMOST.

So, how was it? Well worth all the freebies I got and then some. Oh, yea I forgot to mention all those items above were free!

The pizza was eight slices of cheesy pepperoni  goodness. I know what you’re saying, oh gosh another pizza franchise. But the pizza is ready, you know almost like drive thru but you walk in and supposedly walk right back out, so no wait time, plus did I mention it tasted great?

Most grand openings are a huge mess. You know long lines, uneducated staff, sometimes even burnt food but Little Caesars gets my $7, but then again I am still not sure it was a grand opening.

Have you tried it yet? Whats your favorite pizza?

Quick Recipe: Mason Jar Salad

Quick Recipe: Mason Jar Salad

It’s no secret I love food. I mean I just spent the last weekend overdosing on hot cross buns and baked macaroni. But despite it all I do try to make subtle changes to my diet that will come off to some as eating healthy. Small things like replacing cow’s milk with almond milk, swearing off hot dogs and I’ve even abandoned the fire engine aka corn beef (although there is still two cans  in my cupboard as I speak).

My new project was the Mason Jar Salad.  This super quick recipe makes for a perfect lunch and can be made days ahead saving me tons of time and money! It was real easy and took me maybe 10 minutes max.

Quick Mason Jar Salad

Here’s what I used:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • California Mix Vegetable Blend (Included broccoli, carrots and cauliflower)
  • Tuna Salad
  • Dressing of your choice
  • Mason Jar

And Voila!

There is a trick to making the Salad however so everything won’t get all brown and soggy.

Here’s how I put my salad together:

Ingredient 1: Salad Dressing.

Ingredient 2: California Blend

Ingredient 3: Tomatoes

Ingredient 4:  Tuna Salad

Ingredient 5: Lettuce

In that Order.  The strategic placement of each recipe helps to keep the salad fresh and avoid it getting all mushy.  Easy right?

Be sure to leave enough space at the top so you can shake it all up when you are ready to eat…or not entirely your choice.

I got most of my ingredients from Xtra Value Food Store and Solomon’s. The Mason Jar was from Kelly’s.

There are so many cool recipes that I plan to try in the upcoming weeks, too include fruits and nuts. What are your favorite recipes?

Till next time…
