Get out of the kitchen...…and get on with life. Let’s just say what it is – we’re busy gals! I personally don’t have time, or the desire, to slave over a hot stove all day trying to create the latest gourmet recipes posted on Pinterest! Don’t get me wrong, I love me my “pinning” but most sessions end in an I’m-not-a-good-mom-unless-I-bake-that kinda’ mood…ugh!
Here are some quick and easy ways I make sure my family is fed, while minimizing my time in the kitchen:
1. Plan ahead. It can be easier than it sounds. List your family’s favorite dishes and rotate them regularly – use a calendar, if it’s easier. When you plan your meals in advance, you can schedule easy dishes for busy nights.
2. Keep your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer organized and well stocked with a variety of healthy “convenience” foods, such as canned beans, quick cooking grains, pasta, frozen veggies, chicken breast, ground turkey, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, etc.
3. Give leftovers a makeover. Make a double recipe, serving it one way the first time, then transforming it into something else for a future meal. For instance, you can turn leftover roasted vegetables into a soup, stew, or potpie or combine them with beans and pasta or rice.
4. Once a week, have a cooking marathon, where you prepare several dishes for the week. Once you put on a pot of chili and a hearty soup, they cook themselves. While they simmer, put together a casserole, stuffed peppers, or maybe a chicken and rice dish.
5. Cook double recipes of beans, grains, and other dishes and freeze half for later use.
6. Double up your oven time. If you’re baking a casserole, also bake a few potatoes or long-cooking vegetables such as winter squash, carrots, and onions to use the next day.

I held my son's birthday party at Colonial Bowling and I was most pleased with the event. From the scheduler, Jen, to our party hostess, the staff at Colonial took care of every detail, including goodie bags and getting everyone where they needed to be. The boys had a great time (and so did the moms!). Well worth the money. Tasteful and updated decor; would highly recommend.

Have been to Colonial Bowling & Entertainment many times over the years - we are astonished at the remodel! Simply Beautiful! Last week we attended a school fundraiser for our Tween. Awesome deal - 90 minutes of bowling w/shoes plus a game of laser tag for $20. My wife and I actually played laser tag for the first time ever - Lol! The staff was very pleasant and attentive - a few families showed up late and were not happy that their bowling cut off at the conclusion on the fundraiser. Well, a front desk person (Jermaine???) came over and explained to them that the school contracted for a specific time period and if they wished to extend play, he offered them a real good deal-- Sometimes people forget that we were there to raise money for a good cause :) BTW - one of the best burgers I have had in a long time

Good luck finding good service here! The staff are slow (if you can find one!) came here one night on a whim despite the atrocious reviews...should've listened to everyone else! It's a beautiful setup but the service (particularly an older woman with red hair and a nasty attitude) was below par and food was mediocre at best! It was such a joke for the money you pay. Talk about a wanna-be Lucky Strike. Go to a real trendy bowling location in the city. The scene/people/food will be worth it! I feel bad for the families that used this location as their kid's birthday site. Just not kid friendly...

Had a birthday party for my 13 year old daughter. The host seemed to have better things to do. I've had several birthday parties there before and the hostess that I had were attentive, asked us if we wanted a menu while the kids bowled, check on us often. This time around the host walked around with his friends. It was such a horrible experience I will never have a party there again. Disappointed in the service and for the price I paid....I would've expected a better outcome.

Colonial Bowling is great and is a whole lot of fun for birthdays but had one major drawback. On a kids' birthday you get to go into a ticket machine where tickets fly everywhere and you try to grab as many as you can. The child at the party went in but had to wear goggles to protect his eyes. They in fact did the exact opposite and gave him pink eye for 2 days! My advice: ASK THEM TO SANITIZE THE GOGGLES BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM!! Though after this experience I still would recommend this place for birthday parties if not for this little issue. I am not trying to say not to go there because everything else was spot on (everyone loved laser tag and bowling) but just ask them to specifically take care of the goggle problem.

We were on our way to Princeton, heard about your place from friend so stopped in with kids. They loved game room, although a couple of games were out of order. We ate very well, had exceptional service, and kids want to come back again....and we live in York, PA! Thanks for wonderful, unexpected family experience.
