This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fazoli’s®.

My best friend’s older sister worked at Fazoli’s® in high school and it just so happened to be on the way home from school if we went a very specific way (ahem) so we would stop in for an Italian Ice at least a couple times a week. And then we’d get a double slice of cheese pizza on special occasions.

And by that I mean whenever we could scrape together enough change from the floor of my old Camaro.

But yeah, because of that, Fazoli’s has a special place in my heart.

Well, that memory and the breadsticks.

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie might actually be better than the traditional version! With sweet potatoes and a rich tomato gravy, it’s fantastic comfort food.

How does your cooking change in the summer? Like, beyond grilling more often and eating more salads?

I find that I just have zero desire to cook. We’re just so busy and doing so many fun things that most days I don’t even realize that we missed dinner time until my kids are all hangry and we’re minutes away from a giant disaster.

I just don’t want to cook. I want to be outside. I was to be in water. I was to be hiking through the woods. I don’t want to cook anything.

Weekly Family Menu Plan - 5 dinners, a weekend breakfast, and a yummy dessert!

Hey guys, happy holiday weekend! Big plans?!

I don’t have a single thing planned. We’ve gone home for the 4th the last couple years but, for a variety of reasons, that’s not happening so we’ll be watching the Fort Hood fireworks show from our backyard.

Anyway.

This week’s menu plan is ready and I’m drooling over it. Super excited about all of it.

Hey guys, happy almost Friday! I’ve got your weekend plans right here! Make up a batch before you head to the beach or the pool or whatever

When my mom was here last week, I was trying to sell her on Texas and I was all, “Mangoes are only $.50 in the summer! And avocados are 3 for $1! THREE AVOCADOS FOR ONE DOLLAR!”

Didn’t convince her to move here and help me take care of all my kids but hey, it really is one of my favorite things about Texas.

So yeah, I’ve been buying avocados by the dozen it seems like and then all of a sudden, they’re all about to go bad and I’m forced to make a huge batch of guacamole and then eat it all myself since my kids won’t touch it.

Rough life, right?

Hey guys, happy Tuesday!

I hope your week is going well. My mom left us to go back home but we’ve managed to survive so far.

We didn’t do much while she was here but we did end up at the lake a couple times. We haven’t seen her since last summer so my littlest was excited to show her how he learned to swim in the lake a few weeks ago.

And there were doughnuts. And you guys know my favorite thing to do with a glazed doughnut is make a breakfast sandwich.

Plus, doing this single parent thing means that I’m having to take all the kids every where I go so it was nice being able to run some errands wihout worrying about kids asking for a million different things.
