How are you adjusting to the kids being back in school? Have you found your new normal?  

Are you smarter than a fifth grader? How many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have you made so far? My pantry seems to run of out snacks before mid-week.

Coming home from work, nothing is better than preparing an easy meal, from start to finish for the family.  If you are lucky, you might have some leftovers.

Tips on making Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

  • I loved using Marble Jack shredded cheese, but use your favorite
  • Add your favorite vegetables, like peas or brocolli.
  • Use a rotisseri chicken and shred, this will cut down cooking and prepping time.

Crock Pot Cowboy Hamburger Soup


Crock Pot Cowboy Hamburger Soup is a hearty dish.  There will be plenty of leftovers for your family.  I love that the ingredients in this soup came from our garden and the beef came from a local farmer. 




We planted a big garden this spring.  We have spent a lot of weekends canning green beans, tomato juice, stewed tomatoes, sweet corn. It was a lot of work, but worth it in the end.  We have a lot of canned goods to enjoy this winter.  I love adding tomato juice and stewed tomatoes.
