Menu Planning Help – Create a List of Favorite Meals

For years, Hubby and I have had a great system for getting dinner on the table.  I would get home and cook dinner.  Or I would put food in the slow cooker before work. This year, my schedule has changed.  I begin work 20 minutes later and as a result I get off of work… Continue reading Menu Planning Help – Create a List of Favorite Meals

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of June 3, 2018

It has been a hot minute since I have made a menu plan.  For a while, I was eating out way TOO much.  Like almost every day. The cost of eating out plus the unhealthiness of eating out was wearing down on us. My aunt came into town for a week.  While she was here,… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of June 3, 2018

Mom, What’s for Dinner? – Week of March 12th

It's been so LONG since I meal planned.  Between my gallbladder illness and then recuperation, it's not been a priority. My family and I are unique because the boys and Hubby are meat eating, gluten loving while I'm dabbling my feet back into the gluten waters and am currently a vegetarian.  So planning for suppers… Continue reading Mom, What’s for Dinner? – Week of March 12th
