Oh, TIME… there’s never enough of it, right?
As school starts here in the coming weeks for us, I’ve started to make a new schedule for us so I know exactly what each kid has and when. It was pretty pathetic when I realized how much I’d be in the car with 1 elementary school and 2 different preschools in the mix. :/ Add T-Ball, dance and soccer and things are even crazier. Having said all that I was talking to the hubby and explained how although we are busy I never want to be too busy that we couldn’t all sit at the dinner table together for a meal. He agreed. Yes, we want our kids doing extra-curricular activities, but we think there should be limits and we’re insistent that we’re not picking up fast food and eating in the car 3 nights a week. No thanks.
With that in mind and knowing that many of you are busy too, I thought I would put together Over a Month of 20 Minute Meals for you to use one some of those “crazy” nights. I mean, most should have at least 20 minutes to put a meal on the table, right? I know some may not but if you do, here are 31+ ideas for you to make and enjoy during a busy or hectic schedule.
