First day back to school after the Christmas break!! House was kind of quiet after the triplets went to preschool, but was loud again after 3, lol!! While they were at school, I made 3 loaves of banana bread. Had to use up a bunch of bananas before the fruit flies took them away! I followed the recipe except for the flour - I used 1 cup of wheat flour instead of white and 1/3 cup all-purpose flour. My kids LOVE this and I feel better serving it for breakfast if it has whole wheat in it.
For dinner, I made Mac & Cheese for the kids and Minestrone soup for dad & I. Gerald does not like Mac & Cheese and the kids don't like Minestrone, so this worked for everyone. I used a new recipe for the soup, but it's basically a "dump every veggie you have" into the pot. Instead of cabbage, I use kale. I found at Woodman's a can of chopped kale, which is great because I can't always find fresh kale.
