The kids went back to school yesterday.

Hallelujah.

I did as every mom does after a solid 10 days with no break.

I got a spray tan and then drove an hour to the nearest Whole Foods for coconut flour tortilla chips and a bag of vegan peanut butter M&Ms.

Boyfriend was all, “You go to the coffee shop to work this morning?”

Umm.

Yeah, totally.

Anyway, I knocked out, like, 10 recipes last week while they were home and asking a billion questions every minute of the day so you better believe I have a yoga class scheduled this morning and then plan to spend at least 3 hours strolling around the library.

Might even sit in my car and watch Instagram stories without interruption for awhile before driving home.

Mini Hawaiian Calzones - easy homemade calzones filled with ham, pineapple, red onion, and mozzarella cheese! The perfect way to switch up pizza night!

Heeeey guys, happy Sunday!

How was the week? I told you guys all week that I’ve basically locked myself in my house for the last 7 days to just catch up on work. And also because it’s seriously been raining for a week now. It finally stopped this afternoon and it’s sunny and beautiful and I’m writing this is my bright blue lawn chair that I’ve set up in the driveway because that’s where the sun is brightest.

Sorry neighbors.

Switched up the pizza thing this week with some mini calzones. I actually made these twice this week because the first time it started monsooning as soon as I put them in the oven and the pictures were garbage.

Strangely, no one complained about calzones twice this week.

Weird how calzones twice a week is fine but kale salad twice is a no go.

Ham and Lentil Soup - the perfect way to use leftover ham! It's quick, inexpensive, and really delicious!

Tomorrow is December 1.

What?

How?

Are we sure it’s really the last day of November?

Like, sure sure?

Anyway, I’m putting my Christmas tree up today because if I don’t do it now, tomorrow I’ll start the “Well, it’s too late now! Christmas is practically here!” thing and we just won’t have a Christmas tree this year.

English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas - easy, healthy, and delicious breakfast idea!

Okay.

Let’s talk breakfast.

You know I do this every September.

I’m over cereal. I have 3 boys – do you know how much cereal we go through? And it’s kind of expensive.

So I am officially on the hunt for easy, quick breakfast. Did I mention they need to be easy? And quick?

Yeah, easy and quick.

Cheesy Ham and Tortellini Bake - an easy 30 minute meal the whole family will love!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve got a delicious and easy Cheesy Ham and Tortellini Bake for you today! Because I love a 30 minute meal! Especially one that the kids eat without complaint!

Those are my favorite.

Don’t you just love tortellini? I am obsessed. They literally cook in 2 minutes and they make a meal so much more fun than regular pasta. Why have plain pasta when you can have cheese-filled pasta? That’s my life motto.

Along with the tortellini, this yummy casserole has ham, peas, lots of swiss cheese, and a crispy Ritz cracker topping. Ritz crackers make everything better, right?

If you’re not into swiss, use whatever cheese you like. I’d actually bought Parmesan for this but I accidentally melted all of it onto tortilla chips during a weak moment over the weekend. Whoops.

But yes, any cheese will work! I wouldn’t go for, like, a pepperjack but you know, swiss, Parmesan, or cheddar would all be delicious.
