Brought to you by got milk? Food Loves Milk!
To say that I am completely inept in the kitchen is probably generous. I often joke I married a chef so I wouldn’t starve. My husband, Michael does try to teach me things and I’ve picked up a couple edible dinners that I can feed my family. Don’t worry – Michael created this recipe, and it’s amazing! I love the idea of “Night Cereal” because our kids love anything that accompanies milk and they think were cool parents for letting them have cereal for dinner. BONUS, they got to help prepare it – which they love. When I told them the plan they were like, “Wait….you’re going to let us make food AND we get cereal for dinner?…” That’s right kids! Cool Mom in the house!

Me waiting for the first day of school like:
Are you as ready as I am for the first day of the school?! Don’t get me wrong, being up earlier totally sucks BUT I feel ready to get back to our routine about 1.5 weeks into Summer. My kids love school and being busy, so they are ready too. All praises to teachers everywhere – you’re incredible.
