Milk: It’s Not Just for Drinking

Saturday I had a MOM’s morning out. My friend Erin and I met at Panera for an early lunch. FishBaby accompanied us and attracted the attention of everyone nearby -she’s so cute! But, otherwise, it was a kid-free time.

I’m not one to run from my children every chance I get, but it was nice to have a quiet, little respite. And since Panera is not quite so popular here as it is in Kansas City, the restaurant was very quiet, the perfect place to chat about everything under the sun – from homeschooling curriculum to clothing to, believe it or not, Lego Bionicles!

I am a creature of habit when it comes to food experiences. And I love me some chick food. As a result, Panera is one of my favorite places. And I always get the same thing: roast beef asiago sandwich and a cup of broccoli cheddar soup. This soup is a great winter time meal. But, if you don’t have a Panera nearby, you can make Lynn’s version of it. So yummy! A perfect use of milk.

Speaking of milk, congratulations to:

  1. How funny…we are having a GNO (girls night out) tomorrow evening, at Panera! Coffee and pasteries, conversation and kid free for a couple hours…works for me!

  2. Yay! How did you know my budget was tight this month….! What a blessing 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
