Xfinity and Xfinity Racing: Fun for the Whole Family

Xfinity Racing at Pocono Raceway

This post is sponsored by Comcast.

We recently had the pleasure of attending the Pocono Green 250 at the tricky triangle (Pocono Raceway) as guests of Xfinity. For this family full of race fans, it was a dream come true, as well as a day of family fun.I wasn't really sure what to expect, we've been to a lot of sporting events, but this was my very first real race.

Racing is one of those sports that people seem to love or hate. I can remember watching Jeff Gordon (back then he was the Rainbow Warrior) with my dad and thinking how fun it would be to zip around the track going that fast. I'm not sure when my own kids began to enjoy it, but my oldest has been a die-hard Jimmie Johnson fan for years! We love to watch the races on TV each weekend, and if we are out and about during them, we listen to them on the radio.

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 25

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 25

Welcome back meal planners, happy Monday! Would you believe we are still not completely out of school around here? Today is our very last day.

I have decided to immerse myself in the laid back vibes of summer vacation this year. That means a lightened up and easier meal plan each week. I may even grill up some Chicken on Sunday's to use throughout the week . . .I'm SO bad at make-ahead meals though!  Do you make meals ahead? What are some of your favorites?

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 24

Weekly Family meal Plan 2017 Week 24

Happy Monday meal planners! Has summer vacation started for you yet? We have one week (and one day) left of school, but I am pretty sure we are all mentally already in summer mode!

As if that's not reason enough for lighter meal planning, the temperatures are climbing into the 90s around here, and no one feels like spending time in the kitchen, even with air conditioning! My summer plan is plenty of lean grilled meats, like chicken, steak, pork, fish and shrimp, with a side grilled summer vegetables. Broccoli, asparagus and zucchini all grill really well.
