It’s the end of summer vacation and I find myself once again asking, “where did the time go?” These months seem to fly by faster and faster with each passing year, but for me there is one distinct difference that sets this upcoming school year apart.
Instead of one child in school full-time, I’ll have two! Woohoo!!
My sweet Lily is going to be in Pre-K, right across the hall from her big sissy’s 2nd grade class!
We have some nerves as well as excitement over here, but as I plan for us to get back into a solid routine, the question of school lunch always comes into play.

The summer is here and we’re so excited for what lies ahead! We have some scheduled fun and many impromptu adventures on the horizon as well. One place we’ll frequent is the pool because it’s hot, hot, hot in Georgia, and we look forward to congregating around the water with friends.
In fact, we went to our first pool party of the season and I really wanted to bring something tasty and refreshing to contribute. I’m not very creative in the kitchen and thought a simple salad would be nice. The difference this time, however, was the addition of Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit!
My family really enjoys kiwi but it’s not something we think to buy often. When we do, it’s typically the green kind, but who knew there was a yellow kiwi option?!!
I was intrigued when I saw this sungold kiwi in the exotic fruit section, and learned that Zespri is a New Zealand based business that focuses primarily on the kiwifruit. Packed with nutrients, kiwi is a great source of folate and potassium. It’s juicy and so easy to cut open and serve too!
When it came time to put together a salad to bring I decided to add this special ingredient. I knew I made a delicious discovery and wanted to share!!
The water, and salad were both big hits that day, and even though it seems small, trying something new with food took me out of my comfort zone. I’d like to do more things that stretch me this summer which is why I’m also excited to share Zespri’s Wander & Win Challenge!
For the next 10 weeks I encourage you to try something new and step out of your comfort zone with the challenges you can find here.

Do you eat dinner as a family? We do our best to every night and keep it pretty simple during the week. However, we try to switch things up on the occasional Sunday, and this weekend we had a delicious meal courtesy of my mama!
She had a taste for smothered pork chops and cabbage and we were all ok with that! I wanted to contribute with a quick and easy side, and thanks to Stella® Organic Fresh Mozzarella we had some creamy and extra cheesy mashed potatoes that were the perfect compliment to our meal!
