Menu Plan: Back to School

School is back in session! This is the first time we’ve taken an extended summer break in several years and I’ve enjoyed it, but I’m ready for our routine. Not only is school starting but soccer starts next week too! I’m hoping we don’t have practice five nights a week like we did last season, but we won’t know until next weekend.

If we do, I’ll have to change the name of my site to The Crock Pot Housewife, because that’s the only way I can get dinner on the table when I spend my afternoons at the soccer field!

      Congrats on your new site Liz! I hopped over last week and it looks amazing! Can’t wait to read all your new recipes!

  2. Those Tuna Melt Quesadillas sound good. I love tuna melts, but have never thought to make one with a quesadilla. I’ll definitely be trying that one soon!

  3. I checked out the peach whiskey chicken recipe! All I can say is Oh MY! I can’t wait to try this. Definitely on my next menu! Thanks for sharing.
