Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep and Menu Plan: December 2, 2019

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!  My husband bought a 20 pound turkey for the five of us, so now we have two gallon size bags of leftover turkey in the freezer.  We’ll be having turkey leftovers all winter long! Also, I wrote in one of our posts how our stove has only two […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep and Menu Plan: November 25, 2019

Since this is Thanksgiving week, I went easy on the meal prep.  I was running out of low point, oatmeal based muffins, so I made a few dozen, and I also made a snack cake for the girls. We should be able to pick up our turkey tomorrow, so we want to make sure we […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep and Menu Plan: November 11, 2019

This post contains affiliate links. I’ve been a WW (Weight Watchers) member for 10 months now, but I haven’t followed the plan for awhile thanks to all of the travel my husband has had to do for work and the girls and I did when we went to Michigan.  Now, all the travel is done […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep and Menu Plan: November 4, 2019

I did a freezer inventory as I mentioned I planned to do as part of my strategy to reduce our grocery budget.  Boy, was I shocked at how much food we already have!  I decided to mainly rely on freezer meals from my last large freezer cooking session, so I didn’t really have much I […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep & Menu Plan for October 27, 2019

I wasn’t quite as ambitious this week when it came to meals and snacks I made ahead, but we had a busy weekend.  One child went to ABA all day Saturday, and the other two were busy with school and extra curricular activities.  Then we went to our church’s trunk or treat.  On Sunday, we […]

Meals & Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep October 21, 2019

We left for Michigan on October 6th and got home on October 18th.  When I got home, I found many things waiting for me–bills I had to pay, freelance work I had to do, groceries I had to buy.  This weekend was very busy, so I considered not having a meal prep session, but then […]

Meals & Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep, September 29, 2019

Thanks to my big freezer cooking session a few weeks ago, I don’t have to make as many meals on the weekend.  Instead, next month, the girls and I will be heading to Michigan for my mom’s hip replacement surgery, so now I’m focused on preparing food I can bring with us.  Since none of […]

Meals & Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep, September 22, 2019

A few weeks ago in my meal prep, I made Mexican Egg Skillet the way it was supposed to be, with zucchini and egg and all of the rest of the ingredients.  I don’t know what it was about that combo, but it tasted really gross!  I couldn’t eat all of the servings I had […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead, and Our Menu Plan, September 1, 2019

For the next three months, my husband will be traveling once a month for conferences, so my goal over the next few weeks is to make not only meals for the upcoming week, but also to stock the freezer a bit so when he’s gone, I don’t have to cook very much. Also, our kids […]

Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead, and Our Menu Plan for August 26, 2019

I was really tired on Sunday because I only got five hours of sleep the night before.  That made for a rather lackluster meal prepping session, but at least I got some items made! Meals Diced Potato, Eggs, Bacon and Cheese Casserole (for the kids’ lunches) Neighborhood Bean Soup Mexican Egg Skillet (replacing corn with […]
