I can’t believe the kids are already headed back to school! I’m pretty sure I say this every summer, but wow, that went fast. So I’m getting all our back to school stuff ready — clothes shopping, and school supply shopping, and grocery shopping for lunches and dinners and snacks. I’ve noticed that meal planning […]
We’re a chili kinda family. All winter long, chili chili chili. And some of the summer, too. It’s so versatile — great for camping, or chilly days (see what I did there?), or taking the crockpot outside to plug in because it’s too hot to cook in the house. Whenever. We love all kinds, too. […]
