Saturday....Eating out. Miller has a Chess Match

Sunday.....Brunch.... Hot Breakfast Sliders.....Dinner...... Hamburger Sandwiches, Mississippi Cheesy potatoes  and Very Berry Cheesecake Salad for Dessert

A lot of my friends have asked for easy, on the go meals or snacks...there is prepping involved with this. I always have some kind of "snack meal" in my fridge to grab and go.
Breakfast around here is in stages...that is our life right now. Scott gets an egg and cheese sandwich every single morning to go. Miller takes a protein shake because he can't eat that early. As for me and Madison we eat eggs a lot or protein shakes. We have an easier morning than the boys.

Snacks and Meals on the "GO"

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels....make these up and put them in the fridge...pop some out and heat and go.

Salads....I meal prep my lunches throughout the week. I have small containers and I make up salads minus the dressing. I pour my dressing on them last second and go.
(Yes, while running errands you can see me at stop signs eating a salad....truth)

Lunch Kabobs....I make these up and we grab and go.

I also take Greek veggie dip and put 2-3 tablespoons in a small container and stick carrots and bell pepper slices in it...grab and go.

Fruit....there is ALWAYS a piece of fruit and Peanut butter crackers in my Suburban at ALL times.
(and about 108 half drank water bottles rolling around...but we are not talking about that today)

Protein Shakes...we drink these a lot. I carry one with me to fight off hunger pains. It always does the trick.

Smoothies....we do these in the summer when there is more time. The kids love looking up recipes. Here are two favorites around here
Peanut Butter Banana 
Strawberry Banana 

Trail mixes are popular here. I also let the kids make their own up.

Thought of the day...Take every chance you get in life, because some things only happen once.....

Have a great week!
