It’s the unofficial last day of summer and with that I would like to celebrate.
As much as moms are ready for school to be done in June, I can probably speak for most of us that we are more than ready for school to be back in session in September.
Back to a schedule, back to a somewhat clean house, back to a little quiet time.
For someone like me who is introverted (I gather my energy from being alone in the quiet) it is so exciting for me to think that I’ll be able to have 3 hours every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by myself.

Here is an excerpt from an article that I found really hilarious
“Back-to-school supplies are on sale. We’re getting close. I didn’t find out until I was an adult that my mother threw a back-to-school celebratory brunch for the neighborhood moms on the first day of school after we all left for the bus. I was shocked. A little appalled even. These days I’m thinking, should I serve sit-down style or buffet?”
With the new school year, comes sports and all sorts of activities that will be happening during the dinner hour. Make your life easier by cooking in the slow cooker so that dinner time at home can still happen!
I’m giving away a copy of my cookbook to celebrate this joyous time of year. I know you’ll love it and be able to find at least 30 great meals for your family. If you already have a copy give one away as a gift.
In addition if the winner is from Utah, I’ll throw in 2 tickets to the Really Big Cooking Show that is coming up in November. Here is a little information:
