Pesto Ham Gnocchi

Having just got home from a week in St. George our fridge has been completely empty. Somehow all of my grocery money disappeared this month and I am trying to stretch my meal plan so  I don’t have to go shopping until May (good old case lot sales..they wipe me out every time ;). This meant scrounging through the last of my produce in my fridge–which amounted to one red and one orange bell pepper. I had leftover ham from Easter and some  Gnocchi I had bought from Trader Joes (which I love). I decided to whip together a Pesto Ham Gnocchi and surprisingly it was awesome! I added some fresh basil that was growing in my garden and this simple meal was the perfect weeknight dinner solution. If you have leftover ham and you want a new way to use it up, this dish was simple & used items you most likely have in your fridge. Enjoy 🙂

Yay for warm weather!! There is nothing better than watching kids play at a park. To be carefree and young again. So cute 😉

 
If you live in St. George UT,  or will be traveling there anytime soon, we found a GREAT place to visit. They have a Children’s museum that is free. You can donate money if you wish to enter, but you don’t have to. We went there two days in a row and the kids had a blast! It’s right by the splash pad and tabernacle. It’s also right next to our favorite lunch stop (One Hot Grill). After that, go get you a cookie from The Sugar Cookie. After those yummy stops you might want to take a nice long hike in Snow Canyon to burn off some calories. YUM! I am craving their cookies already 😉

*Try their molasses old fashioned cookie with cream cheese frosting. Oh my, it is heavenly!
