Well, we are almost done with another week of school. We are finally settling into a routine here and both girls are thriving in their new classrooms. My oldest had her very first test and scored a 100 (proud mama moment)!
Earlier this week, Nestle Family challenged me to pledge a New School Year Resolution. I decided to pledge a new, healthier school year for my girls by preparing nutritious dinners and packing healthy options for lunch and snacks. My main obstacle is finding time to prepare, so my husband and I decided that we would take one hour every Sunday morning to plan a menu for the entire week followed by a shopping trip at the grocery store to stock up on essentials.
I found a very useful app for my iPhone to aid in planning and shopping trips, Dinner Spinner from Allrecipes.com. Almost like a slot machine, you can “spin” the categories to find something fun to cook. Looking for something specific? You can select main dishes made with chicken in 45 minutes or less and instantly view many recipes that fit the bill! I am hoping this app helps me to find new recipes so I can stick to my resolution.
Have you made a New School Year Resolution?
One winner will receive a $25 Nestle Family Mastercard Rewards Card, $20 in school supplies, free coupons from TOLL HOUSE Refrigerated Cookie Dough and OVALTINE, an OVALTINE straw dispenser and recipe booklet, as well as a Nestlé Family coupon booklet!
