Kitchen Confessions: On the go eating

So here's my kitchen confession this week...I pretty much don't cook family dinners anymore.  Sure I make easy things for my kids to eat and I'll have a late night meal sometimes after I get everyone settled, but when we don't get home until late from the kids' sports and I am going in a million different directions, there just simply isn't time unless we all want to eat as a family at 8:00 PM, or later.

 I feel like since school started we are pretty much on-the-go all the time.  Tomorrow I plan to share some things that help us get though the busy afternoons.  Most afternoons though, the kids hurry to finish homework so that it is out of the way before they have to change and we are rushing out the door for our many afternoon activities.  From soccer, to baseball, to cheer and back again to soccer, there is always something that fills our afternoons and evenings.


One thing I've been thankful for during these crazy days is that we have always been pretty low-key when it comes to family meals.  The Mr. is usually traveling for work or working longer hours, so we have never been a everyone-sit-down-together-every-night kind of family.  Now don't get me wrong, when we are able to all eat together it is so nice, but it's more important for me to get everyone fed at a normal time and most important to get them to bed on time!  We spend plenty of quality time together and squeeze in meals when we can.  Like a quick salad for me in-between carpool...


Or a hearty snack in the car to hold over Blondie until after soccer practice...




Since we do a lot of on-the-go eating in the afternoons and evenings I was so excited to be introduced to Ready Pac's Bistro Bowls and Snack Packs, which are seriously the best thing for on-the-go.  I can't believe I have never paid attention to these in the store before now because they are AMAZING!!!  Not only do they taste good, but everything you need for a healthy snack or meal is already included and it is so easy to grab and go.  To read more be sure to check out my post on Savvy Sassy Moms, HERE.  AND, there is a $150 Visa gift card giveaway you can enter at the bottom of the post!  Go check it out and enter to win!
