The end of the school year has been crazy here so we've been going out a bit more then I would like. We've also been using our list of things we know we like which has been great. Its so nice to make things that the kids already know they like. Here are a few new things we've done recently though.
One pan baked salmon. It's so good and so easy we've made it twice already.
Backed Chimi Changas. These were tasty. Emily only ate the filling but the rest of us were pleased. They held a lot of heat though so let them cool or cut them up for little kids.
This is eggs, cheddar cheese, and potatoes. Everyone was pleased.
Pesto chicken pasta salad. I made this on a night when I knew we would all be walking into the house hungry at 8pm. I used regular pesto and a can of oranges instead of the specific recommended ingredients. I also mixed it up hours ahead of time and served it cold.

During spirit week this year one of the days was PJ day. Easy enough right? Except that the girl can't wear nighties unless they have bottoms and no one can wear tank tops. No big deal if it weren't also hot. I know I could have gone shopping and gotten both kids new pjs but finding any for Emily that truely fit the rules would have been hard and finding any for Elijah that were topics he liked would have also been hard so I decided just to make them instead.
