Have you been following along the last few weeks? Have you tried any of the meal suggestions? Is the mealtime chaos getting easier?
Planning a family friendly, easy meal is so important to keep the household going. Take our situation on Thursday. Our oldest was at a Scholastic Bowl meet. Our daughter had to be at school at 6:00 pm for a Science Fair. On the way out the door to get to the Science Fair, Ryan called and asked us to pick up him up from Scholastic Bowl. We dropped Cora off at the grade school, picked Ryan up at the middle school and went back to the grade school. We left him in the car to eat (which I brought with us) and the remaining four of us went into the school.
Oh, it gets better.
While we were in the school watching the Science Fair, Ryan came in (after changing in the van, yes, it was dark out) dressed in his band concert clothes. He stayed for a few minutes, then walked to the high school with a friend for his band concert. At which time, we piled into the van and drove over to the high school to watch the concert. Got home and threw them all in bed.
That was our Thursday.
We did not have time for a large, complicated meal. However, I still was able to put together a wholesome and delicious meal for my family. Another plus, we didn’t have to get take out, either. Planning ahead, knowing what recipes you can make that are quick and easy will make a huge difference in your busy lives.
We made Kid Friendly Pizza Bake that night.
Note To Self: Update Picture. ;-)
This pizza bake was made with sausage and pepperoni.
