Before I get crazy with all that is involved with the Fall season, the hubs and I are heading out of town (celebrating 10 years). Our long awaited, first time ever, vacation without the kids. I’m excited and scared all at once. However, my amazing parents are taking over parental duties with the kiddos, and I couldn’t be more grateful, knowing that they are in very good hands. I’m trying to prepare as much as possible to help alleviate the load on them. I would love to have a few meals ready for her to pull out of the freezer, for a quick, delicious dinner.
