"I bet you already know what you're having for supper tonight." Someone said that to me one afternoon last week. I replied that I did have a meal planned - not necessarily because I was super organized but because I'm really hungry when I get home from work! 🙂
This time of year is always extra busy, and with the fluid nature of things right now it's possible that your schedule is constantly changing. I've come up with a few tricks that help me to stay as on top of things as possible. I can't possibly remember everything that I need to get done or recall random thoughts that pop into my head. Here are a few things I do that might be helpful for you, too!
Do you remember life before Pinterest? It's been around almost as long as I've been married and I can't really imagine planning meals without it! After almost ten years of pinning recipes to my boards, I decided that it is time for me to get in there and reorganize things. I started with my Main… Continue reading Menu Monday and Organized Pinterest Boards
I'm not going to apologize for starting another post with a pumpkin flavored item - it's just part of who I am. 🙂 I saw these pumpkin bars as I was scrolling Taste of Home's Instagram stories and instantly knew I needed to make them! Find the recipe plus a week's worth of meal ideas in today's post!
I use the weekend to prepare for the coming week - I set up my planner, clean the house, plan and prep the meals, and do the bulk of my blogging. Since I work outside of the home during the week, I've found that setting aside this time on Friday evening and Saturday morning really… Continue reading How I Prepped For A Busy Weekend
Happy Monday! We are definitely in fall food mode over here - how about you? I tried a new Southern Living recipe for Hamburger Stew that was so delicious! The broth was extremely flavorful, especially for a recipe that doesn't need to simmer all day. I used a rainbow medley potato that I had on… Continue reading Menu Monday + Hamburger Stew
It didn't take me long to dive into those Taste of Home recipes I shared last week! I put two of them on the menu immediately, and they were both winners! I'll mark them below with an asterisk. Paul wasn't a huge fan of the Bacon Chicken Club Pizza, but any time you call something… Continue reading Menu Monday + New Recipes!
I used my crock pot three times during this menu (which is from a couple weeks ago). My crock pot is used much more in the summer than the rest of the year - the kitchen stays a lot cooler when I don't have to use the oven! As I've mentioned before on the blog,… Continue reading Menu Monday + Tips for Crockpot Recipes
If it's June, July or August, you can almost guarantee I've eaten a peach in the last 24 hours. Paul and I both try to eat at least one every day - you just can't beat a fresh South Carolina peach! 🙂 I'm working really hard to keep the kitchen cool, but my love for… Continue reading Menu Monday: Summer Survival
As I mentioned on Friday, I prefer online shopping in the summer. If I can grocery shop from home and then sit in my air conditioned car while someone else loads all the groceries in my trunk, I'm a happy camper! 🙂 Last week I did a small online haul from my local grocery store.… Continue reading Menu Monday and A Grocery Haul!
