Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! Although I’m not sure if it’s as fun sliding into a big pit of corn…

Or spending a fun Saturday afternoon with my three favorite people…

In other big developments, Mommy met this nice lady…


And brought home lots of snacks…

Oh, and here’s the biggest news of the week. I’m a big boy and I don’t need naps anymore…

Bug no nap


Mama is teaching me all about being thankful, especially for people that help out and do good things. If you know any people like that, you should enter them in the Thanks for Giving Contest.


If you want to see more photos of me behind-the-scenes of life in the Cupcakes & Kale Chips house and kitchen, follow Mommy on Instagram.

Also, make sure you follow her on bloglovin’, or enter your email address in that box on the right, so that you never miss any photos of me new recipes, reviews, and giveaways that are coming up.

OK, Mommy’s turn…

Something I love and made this weekSlow Cooker Beef Pot Roast – well, basically I made this, but didn’t exactly follow the recipe. That happens sometimes. (on my Yummy Eats Board)

Something I love and will probably never makeKentucky Hot Brown Burger from Call Me PMc – I just can’t even… no words! (on my Burger Obsession Board)

Something I love and want to bake – Grain Free Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips – yummy yummy yummy! (on my Gluten Free Baking Inspiration Board)

Something I love and want to cook Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash from Closet Cooking – now THIS is what I call “dinner”! (on my Squash Obsession Board)

Something I love and want someone to make for meCaramelized Butternut, Roasted Garlic & Coconut Butter Grilled Cheese from How Sweet It Is – because I was to eat it in all its cheesy, greasy glory, but I am sure I would cut back o all of that if I made it myself. (on my Grilled Cheese Obsession Board)

Something I love and want to put my own spin onAutumn Chicken Salad from Chocolate & Carrots – I think this would be fabulous with steak, too, and this may be what pushes me to remake and post my cream balsamic dressing. (on my Salad Obsession Board)
