Meal Planning for a busy familyHappy Monday! I hope everyone has had a great start to a new week! We have been pretty busy. When your child is in preschool, there are lots of birthday parties to attend. We don’t go to all of them but I do enjoy taking her to most of them. She loves playing with her friends from school so much! This weekend we were invited to a party on Sunday at 5:00. I wasn’t sure what I would do about dinner on Sunday night with a party at this time. Luckily I remembered an easy recipe for the crock pot! This Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken is so easy and delicious. I threw everything in the crock pot before we left for church Sunday morning and it was ready when we got home from the party. It goes great over rice or pasta. (more…)

I have been on a mission to keep a weekly monthly grocery budget! This is a lot harder than I realized. It definitely helps that we meal plan each week and also use leftovers as much as possible. This weekend we grilled chicken so we saved the leftover chicken for rice bowls. This is a super easy and quick meal for weeknights. (more…)

Weekly Meal Plan

Last week we tried an amazing sheet pan recipe with Chicken and Veggies. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to look for another recipe. The one we decided to try this week was a Sheet Pan Steak and Veggies. It was very similar to last week’s choice but was not near as delicious. Β Instead of cooking the entire recipe to have leftovers, I decided to chop everything up and save half of it for the next night. That worked out really well for us this week. (more…)

Meal PlanningWelcome back to Menu Monday! We tried a couple of new recipes this week and they were both delicious! Saturday I made a recipe called One Pan Chicken and Veggies.Wow! It really was so delicious! I was hoping this would last us two meals but we ate more than half of it so I had to rethink my menu for this week on Day One! (more…)

meal planningAfter trying HelloFresh last week, we decided to go back to some of our tried and true favorites this week. Prosciutto Pasta is one of my all time favorite dishes and I think I could honestly eat this one every week. The Hawaiian Chicken is super easy and can be served over the extra noodles I cooked up from the Prosciutto Pasta. That is what we did Sunday night.Β  (more…)

We had a very busy weekend! Graylie turned three years old last week so we had a few friends and family members over to celebrate. Needless to say, my normal way of menu planning was thrown off a little. I normally would have prepared a dinner on Saturday night that could also be used Monday night for dinner. Since we had ordered a nugget tray from Chick-fil-a and had lots left over, we decided to have chicken nuggets for dinner that night! The kids were thrilled with that option. I chopped mine up over a salad with ranch dressing and it was really good. (more…)

It is strawberry season in North Carolina and that makes me happy! We stopped by the produce stand this weekend to pick up a bucket. One of my favorite breakfasts during the week is a bowl of berries and yogurt topped with granola. I try to prep this the night before by putting the fruit and yogurt in a bowl so that I only have to add the granola in the next morning. (more…)
