September is here and summer is over. A few things will change when it comes to meals.  We probably won’t grill every Thursday because that pushes dinners back because we have to wait for my husband to come home.  Eventually when it cools down we’ll start soup/stew night again on Thursday.  Little D has late […]

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 […]

We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year and to make things easy we have everyone bring something.  My sister in law will bring mashed potatoes.  One of my mothers-in-law (I have two) will bring sweet potato casserole and the other will make the stuffing.  My mom […]

Hi everyone! I forgot that Tuesday is Valentine’s Day when I planned this week’s dinner items. It’s doesn’t really matter because we are going to eat at home and celebrate with the kids. We can always go out another non-holiday night (plus, how unromantic is a Tuesday?). This week, the only new item on the […]

I had my weekly meal plan all done when my husband reminded me to go “meat-free” for Ash Wednesday.  So instead of a slow cooker chicken, I’m going to try a new recipe for red beans and rice sans sausage (In celebration of Mardi Gras of course).  I might make some kind of meat to […]

Happy Monday!  I hope you all are enjoying the fall season.  The weather in San Diego has been perfect — cooler but not too cool. The latest new meal we enjoyed was homemade macaroni and cheese.  It was on the menu for Friday but due to a hectic day, I wasn’t able to put it […]

Last Tuesday we all enjoyed the Ravioli with Spinach and Sun-dried tomatoes.  On Friday, we accepted a last minute dinner invitation so I moved the homemade pizza to Saturday. After I preheated the oven I noticed an overwhelming burnt smell, then I saw the smoke oozing from the oven and before I could do anything […]

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 […]

I’m happy to say my family is no longer sick and we are finally back on regular food. The chicken noodle soup I made last week really hit the spot. I ended up using a rotisserie chicken from the store and it was incredibly easy and tasted much better than canned soup. I will definitely […]
