Thai Curry Lime Shrimp

This Thai Curry Lime Shrimp recipe is an easy way to have a taste of Thailand right in your own home! #recipe #ThaiCurryLimeShrimp #Thai

Thai food is one of mine and my boyfriend’s favorites. We order it all the time and each time we do, I think to myself I need to figure out how to incorporate the bold and vibrant Thai flavors into dishes at home. And that’s exactly what I’ve done with this Thai Curry Lime Shrimp.

I cannot even begin to tell you how amazingly delicious it is. The curry offers up some heat and the lime adds a little sweetness. The two flavors are perfect compliments to each other. And it’s just like summer – a little hot and spicy, but sweet all the same!

If you’re wondering about the Thai Green Curry Sauce, it can be purchased at Aldi. At least, that’s where I get it. I don’t know if it’s available in other stores, but if it’s not and you don’t have an Aldi near you, the sauce can easily be substituted with a different curry sauce or maybe even try a sweet chili sauce.

When you try the recipe, come back and let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Do you enjoy the bold and vibrant flavors of Thai inspired dishes?

I’m just not afraid to show it, haha!  A few of this week’s photos show just how messy our home gets sometimes, but the kids are happy and that’s what matters. Enjoy!

Strawberry Streusel Squares Made from Our Freshly Picked Strawberries


Last week we went strawberry picking and came home with more strawberries than I knew what to do with. So I baked us up some Strawberry Streusel Squares and they were delicious! #recipe #strawberrypicking #strawberries

Last week I took my family strawberry picking for the first time. It was a great way to get everyone out of the house and enjoy a little family time together. It was a simple outing, but the kids had a lot of fun picking their own fresh strawberries. And though my son doesn’t eat them (because of the picky eater he is), even he enjoyed it.

We arrived at Farms View Roadstand sometime in the afternoon. Luckily, it was a really nice day out with temperatures in the high 60’s, the perfect day for strawberry picking. The staff kindly gave us the rundown and directed us to the strawberry plants out in the field. Then we were off!

Wonder Woman lost her patience and ate a few strawberries while in the field.

I had no intention of picking and buying as many strawberries as we did, but once we saw them and got to work, we had a box full in no time. We bought just over 2.5 lbs. of strawberries!

When we buy strawberries from the store, about half of the package typically goes bad before we get around to eating them, so I had no idea what we were going to do with all of these. But we’ve had no problem this past week going through the 2.5 lbs. we picked from the farm.

When we got home, I decided to bake us up some Strawberry Streusel Squares and boy were they delicious. They were gone by the next day!

These Strawberry Streusel Squares will have your family working hard on the farm, growing and picking their own fresh strawberries for their favorite spring time treat!
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar (break down into ¼ cups)
  • 1½ cups of flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick, cold and firm)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups freshly chopped strawberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a square dish by lining it with parchment paper (if you don't have parchment paper you can also spray the dish with non-stick spray). Parchment paper allows for quicker cooling time and easy cutting.
  2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients (brown sugar, white sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon). Only use ¼ cup of the white sugar.
  3. Add the butter, egg and vanilla to the bowl and do a rough mix. It's easier to slice the stick of butter before adding it to the bowl and I suggest using your hands to do the rough mix. The mixture should be a thick, crumbly consistency when ready.
  4. Place half of the mixture into the bottom of the dish. Mash it into the dish so it creates a solid base.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the strawberries and a ¼ cup of white sugar. Add the strawberry mixture to the dish, spreading it evenly.
  6. Crumble the remaining streusel mixture on top of the strawberries. It's okay if the remaining mixture doesn't cover the entire top of the strawberries.
  7. Place in the oven for 35 minutes and when done remove the dish from the oven. Then, using the parchment paper, remove the treat from the dish and place on a cooling rack.
  8. Let it cool completely before cutting into squares (9 or 12 squares).

This recipe only used up a small portion of the strawberries we had picked, so I had plenty left to make a second batch of Strawberry Streusel Squares. As for the rest of them, we’ve just been snacking on fresh strawberries all week. I can’t wait until we go strawberry picking again!

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time #SummerFun

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame
~Thank you to Zing for providing Blast Box for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own. This post also contains affiliate links, in which I will receive commission for your purchase.~




I love finding games that are great for the whole family to play and sometimes that’s hard because my kids are so young (5 y/o and almost 2 y/o). They don’t always quite understand the concept of certain games, even one’s that are age appropriate, and it can get frustrating for everyone.

Blast Box by Zing happens to be one that all of us enjoy and even the kids understand what it’s all about. Since getting the game, Blast Box has been played over and over and over. My son literally asks to play every day and I can already tell it’s going to be a major part of our summer fun plans.

How to play!

Setup and play of Blast Box is super simple. For each player (up to four), a balloon needs to be inflated and placed under the box. Don’t worry, the game includes a handheld pump to blow up the balloons.

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame

The object of Blast Box is not to pop a balloon. Each player takes a turn with the spinner, which indicates how many nails they have to hammer into the box (if any). If you pop a balloon, you’re out and the last person standing wins. Easy peasy!

I love that it’s even safe for my youngest one to play. The “nails” are flexible plastic pieces and aren’t sharp at the ends. The tips are a dull rounded shape, but they’re pointy enough to pop balloons when hammered in.

And although a simple concept, Blast Box requires some strategy. In the beginning, we’ve found that starting around the outside of the box is a pretty safe way to go. But when you get to a point where there are multiple nails hammered into the box, it starts narrowing down the possible locations of remaining balloons.

You have to strategize and determine where it would be safe to hammer a nail without popping one of the balloons. It’s also a good idea to pay attention so you can see which nails actually did pop balloons. Maybe your next move should be in that same area, since you know a balloon has already been popped there.

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame

My kids must be lucky, or maybe I’m unlucky, but I actually understand how to strategize in this game, while my kids don’t really get it quite yet. They just love banging the nails in and hoping they don’t hit a balloon. Yet still, they beat me just about every time!

Tips

From playing Blast Box so many times, there are a few tips I’d like to share that will help make the game run smoother.

The first tip involves inflating the balloons. As I mentioned before, the game includes a handheld pump for easy inflation. The game also includes small cardboard balloon holders to keep the air in the balloons and also double as weights to keep the balloons in place under the box.

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame

I’ve found that the trick to easily attaching the cardboard weight without popping the balloon is to inflate the balloon, keep it on the pump, twist the end to tighten it and slip the twisted part into one of the cardboard slots. Then slip it through the second slot and remove the balloon from the pump.

Trust me, I’ve popped and fiddled with enough of the balloons to have a good grip on this, haha!

My second tip involves the box itself. If you’re playing on a flat surface, you may need someone to hold it in place. If not, there’s a good chance someone will knock into the box and when it moves, the nails will bend and allow space for the balloons to move underneath. Here’s an example.

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame

We got down to two players, but only one nail slot left. That just doesn’t make sense. If there’s only one nail slot left, then one of the remaining players should have already popped a balloon. When I turned the box over to check it out, this is what I found.

Blast Box is a Banging Good Time! #SummerFun #Zing #picnicgame #BlastBoxGame

You can see that some of the nails are slanted, making room for the balloons. This likely happened when my kids kept knocking into the box. The nails were already in place and when the box moved, the balloons pushed into the sides of the nails. So when the next nail was hammered in, it missed the balloon.

Playing in the grass (this is an awesome picnic game, by the way) or the carpet is probably ideal because the box won’t move as much.

Have your own banging good time!

Blast Box is so fun that it’s actually temporarily out of stock on Zing’s website! You can preorder it now ($19.99) for the next shipment, or you can head over to Amazon and get it sooner ($24.99). But note that even Amazon has a limited number available!

Would your family enjoy playing Blast Box this summer?
