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 […]

What We Ate The Week of June 15, 2019

I have been finding crazy good deals at the grocery store, like a whole, organic chicken for $1.98! and a 3 lb. bag of chicken legs for $0.99.  The freezer is stocked, we’ve been eating pretty well, and I’ve managed to stay on the reduced grocery budget I set for myself. Here’s what we had […]

What We Ate the Week of June 8, 2019

The days are still a little crazy, and I find that often, I feel like I have no idea what to make for dinner.  However, I just look back on my weekly menu plan, and viola! there is no thought required.  I just cook that recipe.  So easy, and so perfect for a busy lifestyle! […]

What We Ate the Week of May 25, 2019

This was my first week taking advantage of make ahead meals and snacks, and I loved it!  Instead of spending an hour cooking in the evening each week night, I spent 45 minutes doing my work and 15 minutes reheating the meal and making a veggie side.  Win! I think, even though it’s more work […]
