Transitional Tuesday

Yeah, I'm still adjusting to the changing of seasons.

1. Food...  The weather is still too warm for most of my favorite fall foods, but I'm don't with summer fare.  Do you have any good transitional meals for these first few weeks of fall?

2.  School sports... I think it's a given that we watch our kids' sports, at least some of the time... but what about other sports?  If you have younger kids, do you watch/support your local hs teams.  If you have hs kids, do you go to football games (or other sporting events)?

3.  Dreams... Do you remember your dreams?

1. Not really we are still in summer cooking mode.

2. The only high school football games  I have been to were the year that DD1 was a cheerleader.  I didn't even go to them when I was in high school.

3. I do sometimes.  I read somewhere that if you wake up in the middle of one you remember it and if not than you do not.  That seems to hold true for me.

No, I truly can't imagine ever watching some sports thing, unless I had to be there for my kid.

1. Food...  The weather is still too warm for most of my favorite fall foods, but I'm don't with summer fare.  Do you have any good transitional meals for these first few weeks of fall? -- Not really, we're still eating mostly "summer foods" in that we're not using the oven much and still grilling a lot. And still lots of fresh, local produce.

2.  School sports... I think it's a given that we watch our kids' sports, at least some of the time... but what about other sports?  If you have younger kids, do you watch/support your local hs teams.  If you have hs kids, do you go to football games (or other sporting events)? -- My kids don't do sports, lol.  I've traditionally not gone to the HS football games (even though The Girl has marched/played at every one) because I've been in the concession stands, working. This year, the band lost that opportunity (errr, had it stolen) so I *could* go, and now both kids are playing/marching, but dh and I are gong to take the opportunity to go out alone. :)  We'll go to a couple - senior night, where The Girl will be recognized, and the last one, where the marching band will have their complete show finished.   We support the HS teams as much as we can without actually going to the games.

3.  Dreams... Do you remember your dreams? -- often, yes, but not for long enough to analyze them or write them down.

Since it is going to be 90 tomorrow, no fall in sight yet.

2.  If you have hs kids, do you go to football games (or other sporting events)? Yep.

I do a lot of grilling, but with more pork and beef and less chicken.  I love a good marinated flank steak and even though it's still super hot here, I have a craving for chicken and dumplings!  So for us, less salads.

2.  School sports... I think it's a given that we watch our kids' sports, at least some of the time... but what about other sports?  If you have younger kids, do you watch/support your local hs teams.  If you have hs kids, do you go to football games (or other sporting events)?

My kids play a lot of sports, including high school so we attend a number of games through the year.  We are also blessed to have  professional baseball and football teams in the are as well as a number of colleges, so yea....we attend a lot of sporting events.  We enjoy sports.

Sometimes, but unless I write them down not for long.
