Organizing the Everymom: Pantry edition

Well friends, after a brief respite, I’m back with our final organization post. The dreaded pantry. In all transparency here, my own photos show that even I, the proudest of organizers, do not have a perfectly organized pantry.

Asian burritos!

In case you haven’t noticed, we love anything wrapped in tortillas around here. And…we also love Asian food. So tonight’s dinner is loaded with clean protein and super-foods that are still delicious and kid-friendly. The only downside is the edamame. I HATE shelling edamame. It is seriously the worst.

I… Continue reading Saturday blitz!

Make-ahead meals

School is starting back on Monday…and this mom’s one solution to long days and new routines is having dinner at the ready. As a serious control freak, I have no problem admitting that knowing what everyone will eat offers me significant comfort, especially when the rest of our routine is in transition. So what did… Continue reading Make-ahead meals
