So last week the the familia and I took a roadtrip to Texas to visit family and to attend the Austin City Limits Festival. Let me tell you, if you are thinking of taking a road trip with a child of or around 21 months of age- don’t do it!! My little one was not a happy camper most of the way. She is a very energetic child and sitting in one place for too long does not make her happy. We took plenty of toys and even played ‘catch’ back and forth (Visualize- me tossing a fairy ball into her lap and her tossing it back- yeah, a modified verion). We had some of her favorite cartoon clips. We split the trip in half and made several stops and any roadside Mcdonald’s just so she can play at the playground and strech those little legs of hers.
So, when we got back I was in no mood to labor over dinner the next few nights so it was quick and easy or one pot meals. Below are some gems I found that may help. Don’t forget to click on the lovely images to find the recipes!
