Hey guys!

Is everyone adjusted to school now?

We pretty much are but I feel like I’m forever looking for ways to really streamline to lunch making process.

So I’m trying to find things that I can either make ahead of time or that are just easy to grab and put in a lunchbox without much fuss. But I also want things that are going to keep my kids full throughout the day.

Part of what’s making my life super easy when it comes to lunches are these Yoplait yogurts. The Yoplait multipacks recently got a makeover that includes an easy open top so you (or your kids) can see which flavors are left and easily grab them from the fridge.

I picked up the Strawberry and Peach package and a package of all Strawberry at Walmart to get us started this school year. My kids love both flavors and they’re super quick to pop in the lunchbox with an ice pack to keep it nice and chilled.

They also make great snacks after school when your kids need something super quick because they cannot wait longer than 2 minutes to get outside and play with their friends.

I’ve made these Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels several times since my kids went back to school. They are super easy to make ahead of time and then I slice them and store them in the fridge so that all I have to do is pop 5 or 6 slices into a small container and toss it into the lunchbox with the yogurt and the ice pack and a couple other things.

I know that making a sandwich in the morning isn’t a huge deal but man, at 6:30 in the morning it’s just nice to have something already prepped and ready to go.

My kids love them. The boyfriend even comes home from work and swipes a couple slices whenever I have them in the fridge.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels

Okay.

I know yesterday I said that I had a monkey bread coming today but I forgot that I wanted to talk about pizza first! So monkey bread Thursday!

And let’s be real, pizza is every bit as exciting as monkey bread.

ANYWAY.

Was your high school football team good?

Because mine wasn’t.

In 4 years, we won 1 game.

ONE.

I mean, the bleachers were always packed and we were so excited for the game every single week, but man, we were terrible.

Curious: if you still live in your hometown, do your kids go to your high school? Do you go to football games with them?

If I still lived in Mobile, I’d totally want my kids to go to Baker and I’d definitely be the obnoxious parent at all the games, even if they are still terrible.

Stuffed Hatch Peppers - delicious spicy hatch chiles stuffed with ground turkey, black beans, corn, salsa, and topped with monterey jack cheese. Easy and healthy dinner!

Heeeey guys!

I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned this but hatch pepper season is my favorite time of year since moving to Texas. We used to get them in Colorado but it’s nowhere near like it is in Texas.

Like, you walk into HEB and they’ve got barrels of mild hatch peppers here and the spicy ones are over there and if you want your hatch peppers already roasted, you’re in luck.

Because they’ve got roasted ones and roasted diced ones and, by the way, they’re sampling hatch pepper guacamole over there and hatch pepper cornbread in the bakery and, oh, hatch pepper empanadas right here.

There are even hatch pepper fake Oreos and I have 11 boxes of them in my freezer right now to last until next year and you can take your judgement somewhere else.

Chicken Fajitas - easy and delicious weeknight meal!
I’ve officially reached the point of summer where I have no concept of time. I hang out with the kids all day at the lake or in the woods or whatever and then come home and watch them spray each other with the hose on the trampoline all evening.
And then it’s 8 pm and dinner was supposed to be hours ago and everyone’s hangry and we need food immediately and I just honestly don’t feel like fussing with much.
So I’ve got a list of quick and easy recipes that don’t require me to keep a ton of stuff on hand and that no one will complain about.
These Chicken Fajitas are at the top of that list..
