The weather here is a little cloudy and rainy - we have a rain/hail storm that was insane this weekend! Last weekend we had a lightening storm - the sky was going from pitch black to blue every time the lightening struck.
All this weather has made me excited for fall. School started for Jake today (more on that tomorrow) and I feel the need to organize and structure our family lives a little more from our normal and from our crazy never go to bed summer schedule!
With that - comes home cooked meals - and dinner as a family. We have never been good about sitting around and talking during dinner. Its usually "hurry and eat" so we can rush off to the next event. Or Mike and I catching up on our day - and the kids are playing games while eating. Its time to veto the ipads from the table and connect.
So in light of my new found self - I've got a good menu planned for the week!
Monday - Pesto Chicken w/fruit (Jake's choice as he back to school special meal)
Tuesday - Manicotti w/salad and garlic toast
Wednesday - Egg Sandwiches
Thursday - Chicken meatballs stir-fry w/fruit
Friday - Tilapia w/ salad and fruit
I feel soups coming on in the next few weeks? Any great soup recipes out there I should be trying?
