Balanced meal ideas for the whole family-BBQ London Broil Steak

Since this weather has been quite hot, but cool at night, Teresa's balanced meal idea for the family tonight is BBQ. The main course is London broil steak, seared on the grill until medium well, or well done for the kiddos. The sides consists of steamed rice in a triangle mold, and steamed broccoli and cauliflower with cute, animal food picks. As the family enjoyed this effortless dinner, Teresa couldn't forget dessert! The family ended on a fresh and sweet note with strawberries topped with sprinkles. What a mouthwatering dinner idea.

Implement this super quick and easy dinner idea for your family on a hot summer night.

Family Fun in Sacramento

Here in Sacramento, there are a lot to explore, and places to spend quality, family time. Kids can often get weary at home, or is just on their electronics all day. Take them out and get active. Today, I want to share with you some of my family's favorite places, and hope they become yours, too, in time.

One of the places you might consider is Dave and Busters in Roseville. My boyfriend and I often take our daughter there for decent food, and fun in games. They offer an "Eat & Play Combo," which gets you dinner, and a $10 power card for games. The best time to go is Wednesday for their ½ price games. You can't beat that deal. It's the perfect place for us because we can all just be kids, and carefree.

John's Incredible Pizza Co. in Roseville is also another great place. They offer buffet style lunch or dinner for reasonable prices under $20.00, and have beer and wine available.

Family Fun in Sacramento

Chuck-E-Cheese in Elk Grove, or the Arden area is a good place for much younger kids. They get to meet Chuck-E and are surrounded by bright flashing lights, and a bunch of other eager little munchkins. Their unlimited salad bar is a hit, and pepperoni pizza of course. Enter the home of Chuck-E, get stamped at the door, get your tokens, and play freely.

Family Fun in Sacramento

Bowling is a must for the family at some point in your life. For some reason, kids dig rolling big, and heavy balls and knocking pins down. Just remember to put up the safety lanes for less gutter balls, and more joy will come out of them. Our favorite spot is Strikes in Elk Grove. There is also one located in Roseville. The best time to beat the crowd and get the best out of bowling is Saturday and Sunday. Get their "Early Bird" special from 9-11 a.m. for $2.50 per person per game, and $2.50 shoe rental. This is a good way to motivate your kids and boost their confidence, all while enjoying the time.

Family Fun in Sacramento

Rock climbing has become a recent hit for us. PipeWorks has eight different locations in other areas, but the one we devote our upper strength to is in Downtown, Sacramento. They have "40 foot high lead wall, 11,000 feet of climbing terrain, 2,000 square feet of bouldering, and over 70 top and lead ropes (touchstoneclimbing.com)." It's totally safe, and they provide full equipment package rentals from $2-$6. Their day passes are $18 after 3pm on weekdays, and weekends. I would get climbing now.

Family Fun in Sacramento

If you have super hyper kids, try trampolines at Skyzone in Rocklin. Let the kids be free and jump all over until they fall asleep. I highly recommend this for an active leisure, and they won't be disappointed. They start off at 30 minutes a jump for $9, 60 minutes for $12, 90 minutes for $16, and 120 minutes for $18. Now, let's see how long you guys can jump for.

Family Fun in Sacramento

I'm sure there are still a lot of places out there to choose from, but the ones I've mentioned can relieve some stress, and spend more time with the family. If you just feel like doing something simple, there are always nearby parks, and recreational centers. Make your kids happy, and you'll be happy, too.
