Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of July 2, 2018 Plus a review of Eat at Home Tonight

Last week, my friend Molly was in town.  The Imaginative One was happy when she left because that meant I would once again cook dinner for him.  LOL! A month ago, I signed up for Eat at Home's first cookbook's launch.  I received the cookbook a few weeks ago.  I immediately read the book from cover… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of July 2, 2018 Plus a review of Eat at Home Tonight

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? – April 16, 2018

We actually sat down as a family twice last week so that is a win in my book.   Meal prepping is key to eating healthy. I also use it as a countdown to the weekend.  I made up 4 containers of roasted veggie with tahini dressing last week.  As the week progressed, my tower of… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – April 16, 2018

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – April 9, 2018

I've been bad at meal prepping lately.  Really bad. It's been a month since we've sat down to dinner during the week.  We usually eat willy nilly. This week I'm going to follow Sweet Peas and Saffron's Instant Pot Meal Challenge for the week.  Hopefully this will help us eat better.

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of February 19, 2018

It's been a while since I menu planned.  With my gallstones, food has not been appetizing.  I create a menu but then decide I don't want to eat any of the food on the menu plan. Last week, I had another gallstone attack after eating a piece of sausage.  It was awful.  So I decided… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of February 19, 2018

Can you believe it is already 2018?  Neither can I. For Christmas,  I got myself a meal planner.  As I mentioned in my review of 2017, I am going to begin a weight loss challenge/ fitness challenge at work starting on Friday.  I want to get a jump start on the challenge so I got… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of January 1, 2018

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – December 2017

My family has been upset because I have not been cooking many dinners lately.  All of our meals have been on a whim or we have gone out to eat. Since I had the long Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to make freezer crock pot kits so dinners will be easier for us. I made a… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – December 2017

I'm traveling to Pittsburgh next weekend to celebrate what would have been Tanya's 40th birthday. The Wee One loves to cook so he decided he wants to cook for his dad and brother while I'm gone.  So we sat down and planned dinners for while I'm away.  They need to be easy because he is… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of August 27, 2017 – Plus The Wee One’s Menu
