Since meal-planning went so well last week, I decided to give it another go this week. I started out by finding 6 recipes that I wanted to try for the week. All of these are new to me, so it will be interesting to see how well we like them. […]
We’ve all been there before – when you ask your significant other what “sounds” good for dinner, and all you get in response is a shrug and a “Whatever”. To combat the “Whatevers”, I spent hours at the beginning of this week making a dinner menu for my family. I pored […]
This has been an unbelievably busy week and I had no time to prepare a meal plan, so we have just been winging it. Not having a meal plan sucks because you end up going to the grocery store on a daily basis and spending far too much time staring […]
On this beautiful Monday, when I would much rather have been outside enjoying the sunshine, I was inside planning the menu for the week. I was bound and determined that I was NOT going to be running out to the grocery store on a daily basis to pick up ingredients […]
I’m trying to be better about making lunch at home instead of running out to grab something all the time. My husband’s wallet is thrilled about that. Today I opted for an “un-tuna” sandwich. It was so freaking good!
Still sticking to my “1 pound of raw veggies per day” commitment for 2014…..so far, so good! I do love having GIANT (1 pound) salads for lunch and having yummy salad dressings makes it even better. I am a big fan of making my own dressing…..it’s so easy, fast, cheap, […]
How many of you have spouses or significant others (or kids) who respond to the question “What sounds good for dinner tonight?” with a shrug and a blank stare? Yes, me too. I often find that I’m getting burnt out of ideas on what to make. I’d do a giant […]
I was at the grocery store yesterday and I spotted a carton of soup that looked like it would make the perfect base for a nacho cheese dip I have been working on for my daughters. The soup looked right up my alley….it was based on carrots and almonds….it was […]
Yesterday was a pretty disgusting day, weather-wise. It was cold (for Florida), and it rained all day long. Today hasn’t been much of an improvement, honestly. On top of that, my tomato-allergic husband has been nursing a sore throat for a few days, and the only thing he’s really wanted […]
Some days there’s nothing better than some good old fashioned cornbread. I use the recipe on my Bob’s Red Mill Cornmeal package, but I modify it to make it cruelty-free. You can check out the recipe there, but I’ve listed it here as well. It’s so delicious!
