With school bells ringing and family schedules filling up, it seems like some days we meet ourselves coming and going. It is those times when a quick and easy dinner menu is needed that will not get you off track from healthy eating. The rewards are two fold; besides eating healthier your family will save money by eating at home.

Before today's topic, let's briefly update the area's drought status. Remember this is through 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug.13. The no drought area has moved into the eastern third or so of the county (and even in to Stafford County). The abnormally dry area is the middle third and the western quarter is in moderate drought. And this doesn't reflect any rains after 7 a.m. this past Tuesday. Last year at this time we were pretty much at the highest or next to highest drought severity rating. What a difference a year makes.
