Menu Monday + Summertime Is Here {6.20.22}

Summer is here with a vengeance! It's been in the 90's with crazy humidity the last week, and I'm doing my usual summer routine of trying to avoid it as much as possible. I went for balance with this menu plan, giving myself 3 meals that were super simple and 3 meals that were a… Continue reading Menu Monday + Summertime Is Here {6.20.22}

Menu Monday + Monster Cookies {6.6.22}

I pulled out my recipe binder last week and spent some time updating it. I had quite a few recipes I'd torn out of Southern Living and Taste of Home magazines that needed to be organized into the pages. In the process, I came across a hand-written recipe card for my mom's Monster Cookies -… Continue reading Menu Monday + Monster Cookies {6.6.22}

Menu Monday + Summer Fun In The Kitchen {5.16.22}

This is one of my favorite times of year to be in the kitchen! Paul is in his off season from refereeing sports, so he's home for supper - at the same time - pretty much every night! It's so nice to plan a menu without having to choose things that reheat well or that… Continue reading Menu Monday + Summer Fun In The Kitchen {5.16.22}

This menu is a little different from the usual, for a couple reasons. Right now Paul is in a busy season of officiating college lacrosse, so we don't eat supper together every night. Because of that, I usually just make salads to go with the main dish and plan for a couple nights of leftovers… Continue reading Menu Monday + Different Things {4.4.22}

Menu Monday + Aldi Favorites {3.7.22}

At least once a month I order groceries from Aldi using Instacart. I've had such great experiences with their grocery pickup service and usually spend less than 5 minutes in the Aldi parking lot - they come right out, load up the groceries and I'm on my way! In addition to the pantry staples I… Continue reading Menu Monday + Aldi Favorites {3.7.22}

Menu Monday + Make Ahead Suppers {2.21.22}

I have two meals to share with you today that can be prepped early in the day, making supper time a breeze! For the baked potato soup, I wrap my potatoes in foil and put them in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours. When I get home from work, all I have to… Continue reading Menu Monday + Make Ahead Suppers {2.21.22}
