We have VBS this week…
I’m guessing you know what that means!
For me (& probably you 😍) it means:
Busy schedules (be ready to leave at 6:20 each eve!)
Excited children (& tired! esp. after the first night)
Naps must not be neglected
Extra loads of laundry
Lots of food at ALL times of day
Oh yes, did I mention lots of FOOD?😏
All this in addition to the daily chores already scheduled! How will I survive?😲
For me, the first key is to realize & acknowledge that it will be crazy, & the second key is to act/react accordingly…
Believe it or not… I often have one big thing that I forget to allow time for &... it’s usually the FOOD…
Nobody in my family understands how I could forget something so important but it’s the truth...🙈
So this morning, I was coming up with a plan & decided to share it with you all, as I’m fairly certain someone else is in the same situation! :)
Sooo… our VBS serves a substantial snack every eve BUT no good mama sends her children to VBS with hungry/empty tummies…😊
In other words, my children always want a little something before they go & not only that… most times they are HUNGRY when we come home! ...How does that work anyway??😏
Here’s my plan:
Have a sandwich, tortilla wrap, etc. before going to VBS
Roast beef sandwiches
Have healthy snacks available when we get home
Cheese & crackers
We have leftover steak meat from our Sunday lunch; so that will work perfectly for the wraps!! I love, love having leftover beef steak, ham roast, or chicken!!
I need to put a whole chicken into the crock pot & debone it. Then it’s ready for our quesadillas + our wraps!! YAY!! Whenever I can do 2 meals in one, I’m excited!!
I’m sharing my chicken recipes here to make your life easier as well! 🤗
And then to make sure I have the snack ingred. easily assessable in the fridge…. Ummm, excuse me while I go & clean out the fridge…
Here’s to a well-planned VBS week!😉
