Berries & Cream and a Free GoPicnic!

Well, we are in the middle of our VERY FIRST full week of school.  The kids have been back since August 27th but they start slowly.  It helps to break them in and get them used to a new routine, schedule, teachers and of course friends.  Our first week was short, only two days followed by Labor Day and then a 4 day week.  So, this is the first FIVE day week and it's proving to keep us on our toes.
 
I actually am looking forward to the ordinary, the "usual" - I'm not the biggest fan of change or trying to adapt to our new schedules.  We are getting there, slowly and I'm guessing by the time we've mastered it, it will be time for our time change and then the adjustment will happen all over again! 
 
Anyway, it's crazy, busy days and nights that call for PLANNING and that includes making healthy dinners and desserts.  Sometimes the simplest things are the biggest hits and a bowl of berries and cream?  Well that's no exception!  Sweet and berries that are tasty and fresh are just what we need after a long day of school.  Soon, we will start making our apple desserts and enjoying the sweet days of Fall but for now, we are enjoying this little taste of Summer while we still can! 
 
Speaking of cutting corners...have you heard of GoPicnic?  Think of a healthier version of a Lunchable?  Anyway, I discovered them when we were traveling one day and needed something quick and relatively healthy.  These ready to eat meals are quick, healthy meals that feature fiber and protein-packed foods, such as multi-seed crackers paired with creamy hummus or lemon pepper tuna, and organic crackers topped with gourmet peanut butter or tangy chili lime salmon for a nutritionally balanced meal.  I wanted to share this coupon for a free GoPicnic at your Target store.  Hurry while they last!
 
Have a great Wednesday my friends!

  1. I feel like this school year is giving me a run for my money so far......our schedule is so busy and I'm beginning to wonder if this is just our new normal! But.. Planning definitely does help and I love the simple berries & cream dessert. My kids would even love it with frozen berries. And they would go gaga if I'd buy them anything resembling Lunchables.....thanks for the coupon! Will try! Hope you are doing well, my friend!
