Welcoming Summertime

Last week began our first official week of summer. I got our new grill put together, one child in camp, and am looking for fun things to do with the other two. One major thing I have done for myself this summer was to create a lunch and dinner menu. It has saved a ton of time, reduced my shopping bills, and stopped me from wondering what to feed the family. The kids have enjoyed looking at the menu and seeing what the plan was for their bellies that day.

Highlighting Some Favorites

Here is a highlight of some of the more popular recipes hitting Big Red Kitchen these last few months. Maybe you remember them, maybe you do not. I am gearing up for summer-time and having children with me 24 hours a day. That means dragging them to places they do not want to go, such as the grocery store, bank, Sam's Club, and all the other places I go to keep my home running. I have learned to pack lots of snacks, waters, toys, books and games to keep them motivated while on these trips. It will be good, it will be fun, right?
