I survived my first full week back to work…whew!
It’s been quite an adjustment week for my little family!
Mr. Hoff has been pitching in with the laundry, the dishes, and keeping the house straightened up.
Miss L has been getting adjusted to her new routine. She is exhausted when she gets home from daycare on Tuesday and Thursday and went to bed a whopping 2 hours early last night!
I know it takes time to adjust, but we’re all wiped out!
I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe with you today!
My mom made this strawberry butter for my sister’s shower a few weeks ago. It tasted amazing with the banana and blueberry muffins!
Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 T. confectioners’ sugar
1 T. strawberry preserves
In a small bowl beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar, and strawberry preserves until creamy. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
I hope you have a great weekend!
I will be spending mine relaxing and recouping!

It is quite an adjustment, isn’t it? Think about hiring out some cleaning… with full time work it is hard to get all of that done. It always takes a few weeks to get back into the swing of school, but can be more challenging now with a child to think of too:) Good luck – our time is coming again soon. The strawberry butter looks incredible, by the way – pinning:)

It is a huge adjustment…huge. I think I just might listen to you about hiring somebody to clean. It would be nice to have one less thing on my plate! 🙂

I think you should hire someone 🙂
This way you can blog more. Butter looks delish!
The first month is always the hardest! I find I am dragging my butt until Canadian Thanksgiving (first Mondy in October) every year. By then I have a routine with the kids and the hubby and I’ve worked out how to gert things done at home. You’ll find your groove!
This recipe looks scrumptious! I might make some for the tea party I am planning for next weekend. It would be wonderul with sones!
