March Break Meal Planning - Made Easy!

Plan Now, Relax Later

by: Maija Moments

March Break is right around the corner and for many of us the kids are home and looking for something to do. For our family, all the after school activities are on hiatus too, so that means our evenings are a bit more relaxed and perfect for getting the kids into the kitchen.

If you’re looking for a couple of easy kid-friendly recipes they can really "help" make, here’s a list of the recipes my kids and I will be cooking this March Break.

Bacon Cheddar Meatloaf

A Meatloaf SO Good, You Can Serve it to Guests

by: Maija Moments


Meatloaf is one of those home cooked comfort foods that often come from recipes passed down for generations. My favourite (and easiest!) meatloaf recipe is pretty basic so when we decided to invite another family over for dinner and meatloaf was the agreed-upon main course, I wanted to come up with something that was still basic enough the kids would eat it but interesting enough to put on the dinner table for guests.

Slow Cooker Kid-Friendly Minestrone Soup

A soup so good, your kids won't even realize it's good for them

by: Maija Moments

When we lived in Edmonton, one of our family night traditions was to head to West Edmonton Mall, park at the “Bourbon Street” entrance and head to The Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. No matter what meal you order at Old Spaghetti Factory, it comes with soup or salad to start and dessert. My girls love Caesar salad, but my son always ordered the minestrone soup which thrilled me because it is full of veggies!

Maija is a professional work-outside-the-home mom to 3+1 (the +1 being her teenage sister and not her husband). Recently, she’s gone from being a stressed out cop's wife and wanna-be stay-at-home-mom to moving 3,000kms across the country for a job opportunity for her.

Now she brings home ALL the bacon and is still expected to cook it! 

Maija has often said that she is a sometimes food mom which means that in her house there are everyday foods like fruits, veggies and homemade bread (okay once there was homemade bread—but it still counts!) and there are sometimes food like cookies, drive-thru meals and yes even dinners that call for canned soup in the list of ingredients.
