My Texas Table - Back to School Ideas

Happy Monday friends!!!  

Today was my youngest son's first day back-to-school. It's a bittersweet moment in our house having two kids that have graduated and one left in high school. I knew this day would come, but I can honestly say it sure did fly by. Last week was also my first week back to school & work (child nutrition), so there's been a lot of adjustments in our daily routine. 

Since everyone is either back-to-school or soon to be heading back, I thought my August newsletter should be about all things Back-to-School As your kids head back to another school year your schedules will go back to being a bit more hectic, so in today's newsletter, I will be sharing Lunch Box Ideas, Quick & Easy Breakfast Options and Simple Dinner Meals helping you ease back into your dinner routine. I hope y'all find something you like.

How about the huge pro pot ad! Sorry, I find pot one of the most destructive things for the youth, Mommy. Your poor kids. FROM Susan is not sad ...I liked you recipes.

An unacceptable ad sneaks through my ad rotation every once in a awhile. I use an ad company and I will contact them. Just because an ad comes through does not mean that I am pro pot or that myself or my kids do pot as your comment stated (your poor kids). I will have my ad provider view my ad set up and have it removed.

Dear Mommy: I take it back. I was just so shocked, because your blog is so wholesome and normal. I hope your kids do well and I wouldn't want them to feel disrespected. Please don't unsubscribe me. I do apologize. Sincerely, Susan Mary

Ad's are sometimes out of my control on what sneaks by,but believe me when I do see something offensive or not acceptable, I have them removed as quickly as possible. I don't want that type of advertisement on my site. I'm not for any of that and I especially don't want my readers to think I condone it. Thank you for your apology :) and just to let you know the ad your are referring to is a large video preview ad and it's is for Kale. I hope you will still stop by for future recipes.
