I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that this is the last week of school. I feel like Ethan just started Kindergarten a couple weeks ago and now he is going to be a first grader. Instead of being sad about how fast time goes by and how quickly the kids are growing up, I have spent the last two weeks getting pumped for summer.

I am a huge fan of smoothies. They are easy to change up, add variety, and I can improvise ingredients depending on what I have on hand. I can enjoy a smoothie in the morning, as a snack, or any time throughout the day.

Cooking for a family of 5 (which includes 3 growing boys) means spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It means coming up with fun family-friendly meals and desserts for all to enjoy. It also means trying to get the food on the table in a timely fashion because the kids are always hungry and it always “takes forever” to make. One way to eliminate all this is getting the kids to help out in the kitchen.

Three of my favorite snack foods: chocolate, crackers, and fruits. I love pairing sweet and salty all into one bite or treat. I try not to keep too many chocolates around the house, because they don’t last long. However, I do keep chocolate wafers to use for treats and I always have plenty of fruit and cracker varieties.

More recently than before, I have been struggling with getting dinner on the table. I have had a hard time managing my time around the house and preparing for it. For that reason I am always in need of quick and easy meals that take less than thirty minutes and have few ingredients. Meals that allow me to use products I keep in on hand.
