These Enchilada Meatball Subs combine two family favorites in one delicious dish that’s easy to make and perfect for busy weeknights!
So we made it through day one of our spring break week. And we’re all alive, haha. I must say – spring break always comes as a bit of a rude awakening around here. Not only is it a sudden shift in our routine, but it’s a reminder of what’s to come in summer. And I gotta say – YIKES!
Honestly. Is it just me….or do you always go into these breaks with a certain vision in mind that ends up just feeling impossible? For me, it’s a vision of everyone getting along, making the most of our time together at home, reading books, doing art projects, enjoying one another’s company.
And then, about 4 hours into day one, I realize that what’s happening around me is NOTHING like what I had envisioned…and it takes everything in me not to pour myself a glass of wine and throw in the towel.
But. Instead of giving up on this break and throwing in the towel, we’re planning to make the most of it. Imperfections and all! So yesterday we went to the library and out for frozen yogurt….today we have a couple play dates….and tomorrow we’re thinking about a movie and a fun lunch. It’s definitely no trip to Disney World, and I can guarantee there will be plenty of arguing along the way, but it’s better than nothing! And it’s all we’ve got.
The one thing that’s making my life easier this week is EASY dinners I know everyone will love. Like these Enchilada Meatball Subs! They seriously couldn’t be easier to make….and since I know they’ll go over well, they’re totally worth any amount of effort. Perfect for spring break, game day, or anytime you need a delicious, sanity-saving meal!
