Healthy Supper Idea: One-Pot Sausage and Veggie Rice

One-Pot Sausage and Veggie Rice
Sometimes (a lot of the time) by the time supper is over, the kids are wiped up (when will James learn to eat cleanly?!), and the dishes are washed, I'm exhausted. Cooking supper at home from scratch is a passion of mine, so I'm not willing to give that up. BUT, opting for meals that generate less dishes definitely helps to keep the dinner insanity down.

Today I bring you a meal that ticks all the boxes for me: It's easy enough for a mentally tired person to make, it tastes amazing, and it only requires one pot. ONE.

Excuse me while I do a happy dance as I think about all the dishes I don't have to do when I make this recipe.

My Daily Routine + Glass Bottle Review

My Morning Routine

Before I had kids, my days were pretty sporadic. Fewer responsibilities meant I didn't need a game plan: I could do things when I felt like it.

These days, that just wouldn't fly. I need a routine that I stick by, otherwise nothing (or at least very little) will get done.

Here's what my daily routine looks like at the moment:

You guys, my baby girl has started school!

*insert tears streaming down face emoji*

I mean, it's only preschool, but still: !!!

Having been homeschooled myself, I have always known that I wanted to homeschool my children as well. I loved the experience!

I have really been enjoying teaching Helen. Of course we have our moments of struggle, but overall it's been great so far. Helen is upset if we have to skip a day for some reason.

I've been doing it 5 days a week - many preschools only run 2-3 days a week, so I feel like this gives us some flexibility. We won't get behind if I get sick or something and can't teach for a day or two.

I'm planning on doing a more in-depth post about the process over on my personal blog, so stay tuned for that if you're interested.

Starting school has definitely made my days busier. I really have to cram things in since I try my hardest not to do my computer work while James is awake.

So having breakfast sorted beforehand is a life saver some mornings. I personally love a slow start to the morning, but the kids demand food almost as soon as their eyes open.

By roasting up a big batch of veggies, I can have a quick, nutritious, and satisfying breakfast ready for a couple of days. Hallelujah!
