Sundays are days to be spent with friends and family. A day to truly unwind and take a breath before the busyness of Monday comes to a start. I consider us lucky that up until next month – we have been a sport-schedule free family. I know the importance of getting your kids involved socially on teams, but I cannot lie that I am so glad we have spent these years with them soaking up every ounce of free time at home with family. Sometimes, there should not be a rush to get involved and stay involved with those who are right next to you.
Brody starts T-ball in April. Finally, jumping on the band wagon and doing what all parents have done for their kids since they took their first step. Sign them up for classes and get them into the groove. We are so pumped for him. I could care less about the logistics of it all – I am just excited for him to meet more friends and have some fun and exercise. Owen I am sure will follow right behind and join a team of our own – and soon my days of prepping meals on Sundays will become less of a luxury and more of a necessity so my kids can eat at night.
The practices, the games, school schedules, work schedules, and helllllo blogging! SO very important 🙂
Here are a few of my favorite staples I like to make on a Sunday. They are uber easy and really save our butts on nights when we do not have the energy to whip up something healthy. Nothing feels better than saving $20 on pizza, to open the fridge and remember what you’ve already made.
Kale + Turkey Meatball with marinara. Such an essential for our week. Packed with protein and vitamins – leaving me only the water to boil and sauce to warm back through.
If you haven’t tried kale in your pasta – do it. Our boys do not even flinch – slurping it up with their noodles.
A favorite in our house that leaves us nearly arguing over the last slice. Brody could eat this every single day if we let him.
Kale + Sausage Quiche.
This quiche is packed to the rim with goodness and is such a satisfying start to our day.
Lemon – Dijon – Dill Chicken.
I have mentioned this before, and I will say it again. Cooking a batch of chicken breasts in my dutch oven with our favorite seasonings is the easiest thing to whip up.
Our latest wrap obsession consists of raspberry vinaigrette, diced apples, carrot sticks, lettuce, spicy pecans and pepper jack cheese. It is SO good you guys. Sometimes I wonder why I grocery shop because Dan and I could eat this every night!
