I hate it when I eat a meal and 30 minutes later - I'm hungry again. The way I figure it, a dinner that takes me 30 minutes to prepare, 20 minutes to eat and 10 minutes to clean up should keep me full for at LEAST that amount of time. Unfortunately, it's not unusual that we find ourselves reaching for a granola bar or a bag of popcorn, 30 minutes after dinner. I'm taking that as a sign that I need to add some more protein to the meals that I'm preparing for my family.
This week, we're loading up our menu with both tasty and satisfying protein rich foods. The theory is that healthy meals that keep us fuller longer, will keep us from the grabbing the unhealthy snacks. (That's the theory anyway.)

Last week marked the end of the travel soccer season and to commemorate the final game, the girls soccer team took on the parents in a friendly game of soccer. I wished I could have played in the game but I had to settle for game photographer instead. It was possibly the funniest game of "soccer" that I've ever seen.
Have a great week friends.
