Post-Pool Dinner

I was all set to make this skillet gnocchi recipe I found online, but when we went to TJ’s today they were STILL out of the cauliflower gnocchi. Also Costco was sold out of cotton candy grapes and the amazing cherries that I picked up there last week. WHYYYYYYY? My faves are letting me down!

I ended up taking the kids to the pool around 4:30 today, because it was hot and we were all getting a little stir crazy. We swam for a couple of hours and the kids ate dinner there- because it’s easy and swimming makes them hangry. We got home around 7, and Brian and I heated up a new Trader Joe’s find for dinner (since gnocchi was out… boo):

You just bake the frozen skewers in the oven for about 12 minutes, then brush on the accompanying mango chutney. They’re not bad! The chicken is seasoned really well and the chutney isn’t too sweet. They stay tender since they’re thighs and not breasts, so take note if you’re not a dark meat fan.

I was going to make coconut-lime cauliflower rice but ended up just microwaving some jasmine rice instead. Kale & broccoli slaw salad alongside = EASY summer dinner.

I’ve been feeling some major anxiety since the kids have been out of school because our house is a huge freaking disaster all. the. time. Today I spent 20 minutes cleaning out the pantry and felt like I finally had my ish together (for like 5 minutes but still). Ugh tell me I’m not the only one?? Also my money is on the pantry being wrecked by the end of the week…
