There are only a couple more weeks of school left for us. Now that I have one kid in school, I can totally relate to this article about how parents feel at the beginning versus the end of school. It took almost 2 hours for Big A to finish her homework the other night, and […]

Now that March is here it’s time to make rough plans for the meals for the month.  I did that last month and it went pretty well.  I didn’t make all the meals I planned (about 60%) but it helped to have something I could react to instead of coming up with a whole week’s […]

I’ve been getting organized in my kitchen, including gathering and printing all my recipes in one notebook.  I can see that I’m low in stir fry meals.  So on Thursday, instead of following a recipe, I’m going to experiment with this stir fry tutorial on All Recipes (all the great cooks tell me that you […]

This isn’t a normal week for a variety of reasons. First, it’s Thanksgiving, and instead of the relaxing dinner at my mother-in-law’s, we are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner. Second, the book is back, with the edits due before we leave for our week-long vacation this Sunday (exciting details to follow after our return). Two words sum […]

I’m going to get straight to this week’s meal plan because I have a lot to say below. We grilled Sunday so will be having leftovers today. That’s a good excuse to go out and play longer before dinner. I love easy dinner nights! For more meal planning inspiration see Org Junkie. What’s Cooking This […]

I started off the weekend at our neighborhood’s Farmers’ Market. This is part of my new weekly meal plan strategy — make up my meal plan on Friday, go to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and shop for the rest of the items on Sunday. It’s funny how I always kick myself for not going […]

Weekly Meal Planning is back! My kitchen is still not complete but at least we now have counter-tops, a sink, burner, toaster and microwave. I’ll be sure to post some pictures when it’s all done. Life is good. I’ll be relying on the slow cooker and burner for most of the meals this week. I’ll be […]

Welcome to August.  Can you believe summer is more than half over? We still haven’t been that hot here in San Diego.  We had one warm week but that’s been it.  I have to say I’m enjoying the cooler summer. It makes it nice to go to parks and play with kids without the nagging […]

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. We had a nice relaxing day which ended with a meal I did not cook. But now it’s Monday. I didn’t post a meal plan last week because my husband was out of town and my daughter was sick. I made the easy chicken noodle soup again […]

I’m done celebrating my birthday and am ready to settle into a normal week of eating. I’m trying a couple of new things this week including making salsa and meatballs from scratch (not at the same meal).  I’ll let you know how they turn out. For more meal ideas check out Menu Plan Monday at Org […]
