Not going to lie, it was a TOUGH Monday coming off of a really great weekend. On Friday we loaded up the kids and headed to the lake. We’ve had several weekends of craziness and it was sooo nice to just chill for a couple of days. We hung out, watched movies, played outside, read, took golf cart rides, slept and just relaxed.
It’s always hard to come back, but at least we had 2 fun Superbowl parties ahead of us on Sunday night. That might explain our tough day, though- Isla was a hot mess. So. Much. Whining. And this was Jack when I told him to get his homework done this afternoon:
I sat down to make a grocery list this morning with exactly zero ideas as to what to make for dinner. Luckily I have about 200 “to try” recipes saved in my Bloglovin’ app, so tonight I made this sweet corn chili from Mix and Match Mama. I love that she does meal planning posts on Monday because I’m usually too brain dead on Monday mornings to come up with anything good.
The chili was really simple and not at all spicy, so it would be fine for kids. I just added some Liquid Smoke and seasoned salt, and I used this fire-roasted corn from Trader Joe’s:
Served with Greek yogurt, shredded cheese and tortilla chip scoops.
So good and filling… and leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Soup and chili are the only leftovers I actually get excited about.
Hope everyone had a good weekend/smooth transition into the week!
