Making Meals In A Matter Of Minutes

This post is in honor of a dear friend of mine. After being a stay at home mom for 10 years, she is returning to full time work (outside the home!). Learning to balance work with home duties will be a challenge.  Hopefully this post, “Making meals in a matter of minutes” will be not only an encouragement to her, but to others when it comes to #feedingthefam. 

making meals when you are on the go is hard! Some simple recipes for busy families

I don’t envy my friend.

There are many days when 4:00 rolls around and I realize I hadn’t started anything for supper.  {A stay at home mom whose job is to tend to the home!}  The chicken is frozen, the hamburger is still under lock and key (ha, ha) and I didn’t put anything into the crock pot.

What is going to be for supper?!?  I should know because I was in my kitchen 236 times already that day.

Iced Latte With Chocolate Almond Milk

I like my milk.  I always have. I eat cereal almost every day for breakfast.  Milk is usually incorporated into the foods I make. Until now.  At least for a while as I figure out allergy issues. Thank goodness for almond milk and being able to make treats like this iced latte with chocolate almond milk. It’ll get me by.

No Churn Caramel Pretzel Ice Cream

I see recipes for no churn ice cream everywhere.  They are on Pinterest, they are on Yummly and they are on Facebook. I really don’t know why I haven’t dived onto the ice cream making bandwagon, except for the fact I thought it would be more complicated than it was.

This No Churn Pretzel Caramel Ice Cream was not complicated.  In fact, I am truly amazed at how easy it was. I will also be amazed if some is remaining in my freezer by the time this night is through, but that is a different story.

I got a call the other day, totally unexpected.  I order peaches every year, and the peaches usually come in at the beginning or middle of August.  Two bushels came in last week. Whoops, was not expecting that.  The timing wasn’t bad, just unexpected.

The children were at my Mom’s so I had a whole list of items to check off on my to-do list.  Freezing peaches were not on that list. However, being a mom, I am rather used to adapting last minute to unexpected changes. It’s really what I do. 😉
