Menu Monday + Paul’s Favorite Dessert {2.24.20}

This is actually more like two week's worth of meals instead of just one week. Sometimes we have weeks where I only end up cooking a couple times instead of 6-7 nights like I planned. I looked back on my planner this weekend and realized I only made 3 out of the seven meals I… Continue reading Menu Monday + Paul’s Favorite Dessert {2.24.20}

Menu Monday + Aldi Favorites {2.10.20}

  Although this week's menu plan was not sponsored by Aldi, it looks like it could be! I've been loving their version of the Everything Bagel Seasoning, especially on Avocado Toast. During Lacrosse season I keep our fridge stocked with Aldi's pre-made salad bowls so that Paul can grab one on his way to a… Continue reading Menu Monday + Aldi Favorites {2.10.20}

Menu Monday + A New Source For Recipe Inspiration {1.20.20}

I am subscribed to Food Network's YouTube channel and it's one of the best ways to find new recipes! They take a whole recipe from one of the Food Network stars and cut it down to just a few minutes. It's a great way to see a quick overview of how something is made, and… Continue reading Menu Monday + A New Source For Recipe Inspiration {1.20.20}

Menu Monday – Eating From The Pantry {1.6.20}

  After eating out quite a bit over Christmas, I was happy to be at our kitchen table for supper all week long. This was the second week of a two-week Aldi haul, so we were eating from the pantry/freezer and finishing up the fresh produce I had on hand. As you'll see from my… Continue reading Menu Monday – Eating From The Pantry {1.6.20}

A Budget Friendly Menu Monday

During December I really try to keep our weekly meals as simple and inexpensive as possible. My sister shared a great tip with me recently - if she buys something for a new recipe (or an ingredient that she doesn't usually keep stocked in her pantry), she plans another meal the same week using that… Continue reading A Budget Friendly Menu Monday

Menu Monday + A 30 Minute Comfort Food Meal

  Even though I tend to spend more time in the kitchen this time of year, full meals of home-cooked food don't have to take forever. On Friday night I was able to put meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans on the table in 30 minutes! The recipes I used are linked in the menu… Continue reading Menu Monday + A 30 Minute Comfort Food Meal

Menu Monday and Slow Cooker Woes

It's still too hot to use the oven for long periods of time, but I squeezed in one oven-baked recipe last week on a cloudy day! Here's what was on the menu at my house last week - all tried and true favorites. 🙂 On The Menu Breakfast: Green Smoothies Yogurt with Blueberries and Peanut… Continue reading Menu Monday and Slow Cooker Woes

Menu Monday [and a different week in my kitchen]

I know I just told you that we're doing two week menu plans, but this week is a little different.  Several months ago we discovered water damage on our back deck and the part of the kitchen floor that connects to it. Water damage seems to be a theme in this house. This week we… Continue reading Menu Monday [and a different week in my kitchen]
