Can you believe its time to talk about back to school already?

We still have about a week and a half of summer left but all my friends from home are already sending their kids to school! Crazy!

We have started our fall activities though, which means we have football practice 3 nights a week, the littles have gymnastics, and we start soccer any day now.

I’m honestly not sure how I’m going to pull it all off this fall.

A delicious way to use leftover ham: Honey Ham Biscuits! Only 4 ingredients and they will be the star of your brunch!

Originally published on April 7, 2014. Updated on March 20, 2018. 

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.

Pesto Sausage Pizza with Mushrooms and Olives - sausage, mushrooms, and olives on top of a creamy pesto sauce, topped with monterey jack cheese!

You guys.

I didn’t think this post was going to happen this week.

Months ago I started complaining that my oven temp was off because all my cookies were turning out flat and I almost had a full on breakdown a few weeks ago when boyfriend asked for cookies for a work thing and both batches came out flat and I had to send them anyway because he didn’t tell me until the night before.

Not that I’m still upset about it or anything.

Men though.

So yeah, it finally stopped working this week. And I, of course, didn’t realize it until after I thought it had been preheating for 20 minutes and was about to put 2 sheets of veggies in for dinner.

Ugh.

Anyway, the guy came out the next day and got it heating up again but now the whole house smells like gas when I turn it on and maybe I just won’t bake anything else until I move out of here.

I know it’s only the middle of September but the kids and I went and got Halloween costumes.

My house has been decorated for a month.

It was 95 degrees outside today but I had pumpkin candles going in every room.

Someone stop me.

Heeeey guys, how was the long weekend?! What’d you grill?

I grilled nothing. Let’s be real, I still don’t know how to work either of the 2 grills on my back porch. All those posts about grilled stuff? Someone had to come help me.

I know.

What kind of food blogger am I?

So I ended up hiking with the husky, as I do most weekends I don’t have the kids. I’ve got some heavy stuff going on right now and it helps to be totally alone in the woods with nothing to do but sort things out in my head.

Plus, the husky loves it.
