I would love to keep chatting it up with you all.. but folks- I gotta run..mom duties! 

P.S. What is your go-to quick meal when you are on the run? I am always looking for new dishes.. Easy and Quick...please share below! 

Now you have dinner taken care of- let's talk about some sweets to end the meal! Check out my desserts!


  1. I love it Jen! Fast meals are a life saver for sure! Here is a yummy taco recipe :) Give your boys hugs!

    Chickpea Tacos

    4 tsp. chili powder (I use 3 1/2 tsp. so it's not as spicy for my kids)
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/2 tsp. onion powder
    1/2 tsp. oregano
    3 tsp. cumin
    2 tsp. salt
    2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
    4 Tbsp. water
    One 14 oz. can chickpeas (garbonzo beans), drained and rinsed
    1/2 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 small zucchini, diced

    Combine spices, lime juice and water. Add beans and zucchini. Marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bean mixture on a tin-foil lined (greased) cookie sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Stir once after 10 minutes.

    Sometimes we serve this with a cabbage slaw:
    Cut up purple cabbage, red pepper, onion, and add some jarred salsa.

    Always serve with:
    Red pepper

    1. Oh... my gosh! April this sounds delish! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. That Golfer's Stew sounds interesting! My go-to quick meal is bean and cheese burritos! Diggin' the new design girl!

    1. We LOVE that one Rachel! Bean and Cheese..can never go wrong!

  3. Easy filling spaghetti carbonara (or as my kids called it "bacon and egg spaghetti") Usually have the ingredients on hand as it's just a few eggs, some bacon and parmesan cheese tossed together in cooked pasta. I dont' really have a recipe, just google it every time to make sure I'm getting the proportions right.

  4. Love em! Meatball subs are a favorite around here too!!

  5. We seriously have the exact same activities as you!! These all look great! I do a quick crockpot black bean taco meal that couldn't be easier. One bag of frozen chicken {we buy the bags of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts from WM}, 1 large jar of salsa and two cans of black beans. Throw it all in the crockpot {I don't even thaw the chicken} and cook on low for at least eight hours. Serve in tortillas with cheese and sour cream. So good!! :)


I triple dog dare you to comment...it would make my day!
