Also, I made baked eggs for the first time today. It was so great-- like a pizza dip! I just baked eggs over marinara sauce in a small ramekin, then topped with parmesan. It is pretty soupy, so we dipped buttered toast into it. I think it could be very versatile by changing up the herbs and cheese and maybe even using different breads. 
Our TV hasn't been unpacked from our move. 5 months ago. Looks like we don't miss it much. :)   I made okonomiyaki last night, a favorite comfort food from when I lived in Japan. I make an easy version--my favorite pancake recipe with half the flour, thinly sliced cabbage, a handful of shredded mozzarella, and chopped raw shrimp. I cook it just like a pancake, and top with mayo and BBQ sauce. It sounds awful but it really is delish--even the kids love it. If I could...
I made spring minestrone--stock, mirepoix, chickpeas, tomatoes, frozen artichokes, frozen peas, asparagus, spinach and pesto. Amazing!
I just started using Google calendar to plan meals. I have meals repeat every 2 or 3 months, and if a meal is a stand-out favorite, it repeats more often. I leave a day or 2 each week to try something new, because I love to cook and time in the kitchen is my sole creative outlet right now. But, I'm trying to be more frugal and rein in our food budget, so I also have some structure.    Twice a week I make a one-dish sautee (meats + 2 veggies + sauce) Once a week I serve...
Jumping in here-- we had huevos rancheros. I make mine with corn tortillas and beans. Also made a salad with shredded cabbage, green onions, and pumpkin seeds. Delish and budget-friendly. 
I don't know how often you check this forum, but I hope things have been improving for your little one. Also, I thought of using a so-called Calm Jar as a tool. I use one for DD1 and it has been very helpful in regulating her emotions, and even in slowing down my own reaction time. There are tons of tutorials on Pinterest. 
Hi, I also wanted to add that you can contact his case manager/special education teach to establish a behavior plan component to his IEP. If his behaviors are interferring with his ability to learn and thrive in the classroom, this plan may be of a benefit to him.    I taught Special Education before I had children of my own. Only one of my students required a Behavior Plan, and I remembered how discouraged and defeated his mama was. But you know what, it worked!! He was...
Thank you for your replies. Early on we lowered the dose of her medications on a trial basis to see if the other symptoms were connected, but nothing changed. 
Great idea on the jar! What size? I only have the standard canning size (ha, I don't even know what size that is offhand), but if I could find some in the 1/2 cup range, that would be awesome. Can you freeze soaked oats?    I bake the filling, egg, splash of cream in silicone muffin liners at 350 for 15-20 minutes. I just keep an eye on them while I clean up the kitchen. The silicone liners are great because I don't even have to use a muffin tin- I just set the liners on...
Hi-- Although I'm a SAHM, I feel like the kitchen is consuming all my time between preparing food then cleaning it up. I'd like to stock my freezer/pantry with healthy stuff I can pack for the kids for busy appointment days, or just days I want to spend an extra-long day at the beach or park.    Here's what I'm trying so far:   1. Whatever meat/veggies I have left over from dinner go into frittatas I bake in muffin tins while I do the dishes. 1 egg, plus filling, makes...
