Back To School Easy Dinner Ideas

Don't know what to cook for dinner during school nights? Here are some ideas and tips to get you started. First, make it simple. My kids don't like many ingredients in their dish so I don't go super fancy on the menu, but love to keep them fresh and mostly organic. Second, save some time by getting pre-made protein such as chicken skewers from Costco. I also like to get meatballs, and chicken hot pie from Whole Foods. Third, presentation. I use bento plates so they can see all the different items on their plate, and it also helps me to get more creative with side options. What are your favorite dishes you made during weeknights? Would love to hear from ya!

2017 Oakland Running Festival

I used to run a lot. I mean like a lot.... like six half marathons and a full marathon in one year. I know, not very smart and of course my knee got injured and I had to force myself to rest. That rest took 3 years for me to start running again. My friend posted on Facebook that one of their teammate had dropped out of their team relay. At first, I was very hesitant to say "me!" because I haven't trained for long runs in a long time, but I thought I can totally run the shortest leg right? So I said yes without asking which leg first. Of course when my friend wrote me back to welcome me and yadi... yada... told me that I'll be running the longest leg. I won't lie, I was very nervous because I didn't have much time to train (not to mention kids baseball season take up all my afternoon, then homework, dinner, bed time...) but went for it. I'm so glad I did because my confidence is back and I can't wait for my next race! Thank you lush butterflies!

Best part after the long run ;-)

Only in Oakland :-)
