Most of the time we all frantically rush to the store to stock up on all the pantry items that we can get our hands on. If we are lucky we have no need to dig into that stash and have a full pantry once the scare of a hurricane passes. This soup came about after our last scare. I refused to go to the store again and came up with this pasta e fagioli “Hurricane Soup”. Now this is on rotation weekly because it is cheap and easy! Two of my favorite kind of dinners. I usually serve this with a loaf of crusty bread or garlic bread.
I regularly make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. They are healthy and delicious. We eat them for breakfast and can easily pack them in the lunchbox for school. But when the season of fall arrives I like to switch them up a bit and make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. We all love them just as much as the banana muffins and it gives us all the feelings of fall.
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.
If you haven’t noticed, I make a lot of soup. Soup is usually easy, quick , comforting and delicious. There are two things that are a must have in soup if you intend on feeding your family at dinner time. Meat and Pasta of course! Without them a soup is more of an appetizer than a family meal. My family can eat, so I have to be able to fill them up or I’m in trouble.
School is in full swing here. I am focusing on keeping these kids healthy and happy while they are adjusting to the new school year. These kid- friendly breakfast options are on rotation in our house.
I have two boys that are growing fast and are always hungry. I’m constantly looking for healthy snacks and meals to fill their bellies up so they stop eating! These ingredients are simple and clean! I usually freeze them for the week and pull out a few each day.
Both of my boys will be in middle school this year. I really can’t believe it. Good luck to all the kids going back this week!
I had fun last year working on this after school snack with Rachael Ray Magazine and SuperPretzel. This is still a snack my kids ask for after school.
