Hello everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great start to the week. I thought I would share this week's meal plan for anyone looking for kid-friendly meal ideas. The breakfast and lunches are geared more toward Sydney, the last school age child we have at home. She's a full blown teenager but she still loves her kid-friendly lunches. I usually eat yogurt and berries for lunch, or salad and some protein, or better yet, leftovers from dinner.
I'm going to go ahead and get breakfast ready, but Syd is going to help me make dinner this evening. She is having turkey bacon, a blueberry bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, along with a side of sliced bananas topped with chopped walnuts.
I'm going to do a similar version of Syd's breakfast only I'll add a pepper ring with one egg, and spread a little butter on the bagel instead of the cream cheese.
Today in science class we started a new chapter on waves and sound. We also got to watch three students give their science project presentations. "All Greased Out" was our favorite presentation because it was a project that involved experimenting and collecting data on french fries from Burger King, Steak & Shake, McDonald's and Wendy's. The results obtained from the experiment were interesting. As it turned out Steak & Shake served the greasiest fries.
Today in health class Miss Burns was teaching a chapter on personal hygiene. It was all about the skin, your protective covering, the largest organ of the body. The layers of the skin - epidermis - dermis - hypodermis. "Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life."
Syd volunteered to help me make chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. They are super quick and easy to make. As I was cutting the pepper into strips, I noticed that it looked like it was smiling at me. "Awe Bell No!"
There's my girl! She's throwing sass around like a spicy chili seasoning. :o) She's way more sweet than sassy though.
It's time to saute the onions and peppers.
We set up a little mini salad bar.

Great job Syd! It's delicious!
Happy Monday ya'll! Talk to ya soon!
With the New Year in full swing, we have been a busy bunch making the most of the opportunities in each day.
The kids have been busy with their new studies for the year.
I have been working diligently on my study in the book of Revelation. Speaking of “revelation”, I think my rock drummer husband is finally coming to grips with the fact that he unknowingly married a theologian. Who knew twenty years ago that I would one day desire to pursue a degree in theology! :) Life is full of surprises!
Aaron made it to his orthodontist appointment for impressions of his teeth. The fake teeth are being made, and February 16th will be one heck of an exciting day. Just wait until you see his smile!
Syd is chillaxing now, but it will be her turn soon enough. :)
We are continuing on with our healthy diet and exercise plan.
Today is our special day to splurge a little. Since the Steelers are playing tonight, Clint decided to make focaccia pizza, and I made some chocolate covered peanut butter footballs.
Let's do this healthy lifestyle thing!
Stock up on some killer ammunition. You are guaranteed to hit your target with these bodacious bombs.
Keep yourself well hydrated. Your mind and body demand it.
Get that handy dandy Crock Pot out and cook up some lean protein (chicken) to have on hand in case of a protein emergency. :) It could happen!
Don't have time in the morning to cook a low calorie, protein packed breakfast? Why not make some egg white, spinach, feta cheese quiche in advance for a quick and easy breakfast.
Grab some healthy on the go snacks.
Got yourself a sweet tooth? Sugar free JELL-O is only 5 calories per serving.
No time to exercise...MAKE TIME. If all you have is 20 minutes, grab your sneakers and hit the pavement for a quick walk. No excuses!
