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.
Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread – easy breakfast recipe that starts with refrigerated cinnamon rolls! The perfect fall breakfast!
Happy Friday eve!
I think we may have made our final lake trip of the year last weekend.
It was cold.
I think I lasted 30 minutes before I wrapped myself in all 4 of our towels and then they eventually followed me out.
Not really sure what I’m going to do with my weekends now.
On the brightside, maybe it will finally be cool enough for long hikes with the husky. We went for one last week and by about mile 4, she led me to the lake and then just stood in water up to her chest for a good 15 minutes.
Also, haven’t been able to have the top off the Jeep since May so I’m definitely looking forward to that, too.1

Easy Pork Gyros – delicious gyros in less than 30 minutes! Marinated pork wrapped in soft pita bread with veggies and tzatziki sauce.
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.1

Cashew Chicken Chopped Salad – chicken, veggies, mandarin oranges, and cashews tossed in a sweet and sour dressing! My kids LOVE this salad!
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.
Was your high school football team good?
Because mine wasn’t.
In 4 years, we won 1 game.
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.0
