It’s been really hot here and I’m hoping the temperature finally drops so it feels a little more like fall.  The mornings and evenings have been cooler though. Regardless of the weather, I love this time of year. Although it always makes me nervous to see Christmas decorations out already!! Big A’s birthday is Friday […]

September is here and summer is over. A few things will change when it comes to meals.  We probably won’t grill every Thursday because that pushes dinners back because we have to wait for my husband to come home.  Eventually when it cools down we’ll start soup/stew night again on Thursday.  Little D has late […]

I cannot believe it’s August and summer is almost over.  My kids start school a week earlier this year — August 25. Help! Actually, we are taking our vacation this month so no meals scheduled for one out of the four weeks.  Don’t forget to check Org Junkie for more meal planning inspiration! What’s Cooking? […]

I hope you are having a relaxing summer!  My first week of summer was kind of disastrous with plans falling through and the kids whining.  I even started second guessing my “enjoy the kids” goal.  But like anything, it can take time to get into a groove.  Things started to improve as soon I added […]

It’s been really warm here lately, signaling that summer is on the way.  This means it’s time to change things a bit.  There won’t be as many soups and stews on the menu  but there will more grilling options and lighter fare. So, I’m declaring Thursday night “grill night” and Friday will be kept kind […]

April is a special month for a couple of reasons. First, it’s Little D’s birthday. And second, it’s my birthday 3 days after his. I used to think it was good to have my birthday over-shadowed by my kid (getting older blah, blah blah), but now I want my birthday back. So I make a […]

Now that March is here it’s time to make rough plans for the meals for the month.  I did that last month and it went pretty well.  I didn’t make all the meals I planned (about 60%) but it helped to have something I could react to instead of coming up with a whole week’s […]
