Last week was our first week back to school after Christmas break. It was a good reminder of why I usually try to have dinner ready before the kids get home from school. We don't have much time between school and after-school/evening activities. Life is much better, happier, smoother, less chaotic, etc. if I'm not frantically trying to make dinner after school. Then I can focus on the kids and hearing about their day, helping them decompress from school, start on their homework, etc.
We had a few unplanned easy meals last week, like pancakes, breakfast burritos, and french dip pitas. I'm hoping that I've planned this week's menu a little more realistically.
I'm excited to have Navajo Tacos this week. It's been a while since I've made them.
Orange chicken is our other special, favorite fried recipe.
