Thursday: Chicken Tetrazzini
This is a great casserole that can be made ahead and popped into the oven on a work night. Truly comfort food, it is delicious and filling for teen appetites.

Reflections from the Backcounter

Thursday... almost the end of the week. A great day to plan a breakaway. Everyone needs a break from the routine, the mundane tasks of the week that are mind numbing and predictable. A weekend getaway is always fantastic but for most of us, the time, funding and opportunities to get away for an entire weekend are limited. Instead of a getaway, how about a Breakaway? A Breakaway is just that, the chance to break the routine and enjoy a brief respite from everyday life. It can be as simple as reading a book in the library or sitting on a lawn chair under an umbrella for two hours sipping an iced tea and leafing through a magazine. Anything that we do to change it up is refreshing and rejuvenating. Here are some great Breakaway ideas:

Take a drive and look at spring flowers

Take a short hike

Grab your camera and shoot a few pictures

Go to garage sales

Read a book

Take a bath

Take a bike ride

Take a walk

Wash the dog and have a water fight with the kids

Take a nap


We need to embrace opportunities to refresh our spirit.
