what I am loving right now!

Wow what a week.  We have been slam packed with ball games this week.  As well as homework!

I mean really, do you remember having so much homework as a kid.  This makes it super tuff with ball season in full swing.  We usually get home around 4:00 p.m. from work/school.  We have to be on the ball field for practice or games by 5:30.  Hello that is only an hour to do homework.  Cuz you know you gotta drive to the field and all.  It is usually between 7:30-8:00 before we get home.  Just enough time to eat, shower, and hit the bed.  Oh wait we still have to finish homework!

I am voting for no homework during ball season.  Who’s with me?

Needless to say I am really enjoying my quick go to meals here lately.  So here are some pictures of things I am loving right now 🙂

Single Lady Oats – because they just make me smile 🙂

The hubster and I had a wonderful date night last night that included a little shopping (for the house) and dinner.  I had a wonderful Portobello mushroom Panini.  I regretfully have no pictures.  We were so excited to have a free night to ourselves that I totally forgot to pack blogging necessities!

Happy Thursday All!!

  1. Your food pictures just make me soooo hungry!
    Love the pancakes for dinner, totally acceptable 🙂

  2. There is so much good food in this post! I vote no HW during ball season too!! Adam doesn’t have too much homework yet (mostly reading & spelling) – but I hear it will come in 3rd and 4th grade!

    I love that Riesling Relax – too bad we don’t live closer or we could enjoy a glass together!! 🙂

  3. I LOVE IT ALL!!! ❤ The quinoa pasta is a recent obsession and hooray for salad weather returning!!!!! I've missed my crunchy greens all winter! ❤

    Have a fabulous weekend!!! ❤

  4. I love pancakes for dinner!! I agree that homework has increased substantially. I don’t have school-aged kids yet, but when I was teaching I was required to give my 5th graders 90 minutes of homework a night. My FIRST graders had to have a minimum of 30 minutes and 3rd graders 60 minutes (I taught a few different grades :-)) It’s insane!

  5. Those strawberry-coconut pancakes are gorgeous! You’re making me hungry!

    I’m a teacher. I make my kids work HARD all day and then I err on the side of little-to-no homework. It’s so hard to please everyone, though. If I don’t give homework, some people complain. If I do give homework, some people complain. All I know is that if I had children, I’d rather read with them, play with them and talk to them than spend precious time on homework!

  6. Don’t even get me started on homework. Some days I’m lucky to eat. Sounds like your schedule is super packed! I’ve never had quinoa pasta but it looks delicious!

  7. Pancakes for dinner? I hope your boys know how cool their mom is 🙂

  8. yay for date night!!! yummy food in all the pics. i’m all about quick on week nights 🙂

  9. I love breakfast for dinner, and those pancakes look awesome!
