Breadsticks {Flashback Friday}

Buttery garlicky soft breadsticks--just like you'd get from a restaurant!

I have to admit, I think I was a little naive about how life would change after having a baby.  I remember having conversations with Mike while I was pregnant about how we could still do everything we typically do and life wouldn't change that much.  Wrong!

It's incredible how much life is affected by such a tiny little person!  While we still are able to do many of the things we would do, like go to the apple orchard, everything just takes a little more planning than it used to.  We have to plan our trips (even to the grocery store) around Summer's schedule.  We're following the Baby Wise Method, so at least her schedule is very predictable.  Then we have to make sure we have everything we might possibly need packed into the diaper bag.  Let's face it, I haven't been on time to anything since Summer was born!

Mike and I are going on our first date night since having our baby next weekend!  In the past 3 months, we haven't had much time to ourselves, so we are both looking forward to next Saturday.

That's where these breadsticks come in!  Since we haven't been able (okay, we've chosen not to) go to our favorite restaurant, I re-created one of our favorite meals at home.  Last week, I made chicken Alfredo and our favorite breadsticks at home.  Okay, I might have cheated a bit by using a rotisserie chicken and jarred Alfredo sauce, but I made homemade breadsticks!  These breadsticks are soft, buttery, and garlicky.  Everything I look for in a breadstick!  They're pretty simple to make, and you don't have to leave the comfort of your house to enjoy them!
