Need to restock the sandwich drawer in the freezer this weekend! @ladderica’s been making 10 sandwiches or so at a time, sticking them in the freezer, and that way whichever kid is in charge of making lunch that night can just assemble the lunch basically. They thaw beautifully, and you only do the sandwich making mess like once a week or so instead of every single night or morning.
Just finished a two hour meeting to talk about our writing, the podcast, goals and dreams, and how glorious it is to be able to sit down and talk about these things for two hours on a Tuesday! If you don’t meet people who fuel your creativity, give you deadlines, and dream big with you right next door, go find those people somewhere.
Kelsey here and with the change in my work situation plus the start of the school year dinner organization has been on my mind. A simple thing like writing out dinners and putting it in a visible spot is making a difference. I really like this little DIY reusable menu, made from @gettoworkbook sticky note inside a half-sheet page protector and written on with dry erase marker.🌈 Do you post planned dinners in the kitchen? 🍽
First Day of School in our neighborhood! We start early here in the desert cause it’s too hot to do much else. When do your kids go back to school?
It's back to school season here in our neighborhood! (And we’re both pretty excited to see our 🐒🐒 off.😂) To celebrate, we’ve got a new ep all about home efficiency. Are we speaking your love language yet? 💞 We share what helps keep our households running smoothly when life get busy and have some areas where we could use some help. Tell us all your home efficiency tips or struggles! If you see a struggle mentioned in the comments chime in with the answer if you have one, it’s the neighborly way. 🏡🏡☺️ .

We’ve mentioned these handy “measure-n-pour” cups and wanted to show you what they look like. They measure ounces, milliliters, tablespoons, and teaspoons. Super handy for making cocktails and cooking in general. 🍸👩🏻🍳 We found them at Target but probably elsewhere too.👍🏼
Erica here. I am dying! That is all
Inspired by similar eps on @themomhour and @friendlierpodcast, we’re inviting you to our dinner tables for a week and sharing what we ate. We had wins, struggles, and ill-timed grocery trips — surely we’re not alone? 🙏🏼 What’s working and not working for you in the dinner department lately?
