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.

  • 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.
