Well, the kiddos are all officially back at school for the New Year.  
Time for a new semester & in some cases (like our's) new teachers and new classes. 
(Aka, potential new headaches, worries, and banging my head against the wall as I struggle to help my son who is a freshman in high school with subjects I struggled with as a teenager and apparently still cannot grasp... *sigh*.)

Can he just take all history and English classes for the rest of his high school career??
I was a certified social studies teacher who taught junior high and high school for over 8 years.  And I almost studied to become an English teacher instead of a history teacher...

But math and physics and chemistry?
Try as I may, I cannot re-learn these subjects to help him along.
Anyone know a good tutor I can hire? ;)

We all have enough on our plates with the school year and sports seasons and dance classes and after school clubs and practices back in full swing.
How about a tasty, creamy bowl of Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Soup that you can whip up on a weeknight in just about 30 minutes?

Seriously, folks.  This recipe is budget friendly, can please the pickiest of eaters, and has just 5 ingredients...
Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Soup

by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients (4-6 servings)
  • 1 (15 oz) jar of your favorite Alfredo sauce
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 5-6 uncooked lasagna noodles, broken into pieces
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
  • Optional, but great additions if you have them on hand- spinach, mushrooms, roasted red peppers
  • Parmesan cheese & fresh basil for topping
Add the chicken broth, Alfredo sauce, and water to a dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then add in the broken lasagna noodles.

Continue to boil for about 5 minutes and then turn down the heat to medium.
Add in the cooked chicken and any additional mix-ins that you would like to include. Cook until the lasagna noodles are tender.

Ladle into bowls and top with a sprinkle (or two) of shredded Parmesan cheese and fresh basil, if desired.

**Note- I like to slow cook 2 large chicken breasts in my crock pot on Low for about 4 hours for this soup. You could also just pick up a rotisserie chicken at your local grocery store & use the breast meat from it.

You can put on a pot of this easy Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Soup and at least feel pretty good about what you are putting on the dinner table during the week... even if you are experiencing parental guilt for your lack of remembering high school curriculum. ;)

Am I the only one who has mixed feelings about school being back in session?
What do you struggle with most during the school year?  Which subjects do your kids seem to struggle with most?
