PThirty1 Two-Week Meal Plan March 2 to March 15

So I have a secret to tell you. Last week month, I bit off waaaay more than I can chew. I mean waaaay more! I had something going on just about every weekend PLUS projects at work kept me working late PLUS kids activities during the week kept me busy, biz-zay!!!  I fell behind inContinue Reading

Turkey, Kale and Brown Rice Soup

I am sleepy. I’ve been freezer cooking all day long. My back hurts and my mind just wants to be free…in dreamland, that is. BUT, I promised this winning recipe to a few PThirty1s and I cannot disappoint as this delicious soup surely did not.  I’m awake to pen this recipe for the sake ofContinue Reading

Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Soup

I made this by a fluke. I had every intention to make cream of broccoli soup for dinner…something I hadn’t had in many moons. It was even a part of my meal plan for this week. But somewhere in between the hours of 9 and 5, my hungry thoughts happily pondered the cheesy, creamy flavorContinue Reading

PThirty1 Two-Week Meal Plan: February 16 – March 1

Seems like February just started and now it’s just about over. It’s only 2 days shorter than an average month, why the heck does it go by so quickly?!?! As I sit here writing this, my Valentine’s Day is ending. I’ve been under the weather these last few days so I didn’t put a lotContinue Reading

Baked Spasagna with Vegetable or Meat Sauce

I started back meal planning this month and I’m soooo excited! I planned to try at least one new recipe a week and so far so good! At least twice a month, I make a recipe involving pasta and spaghetti sauce. Why? Because it’s cheap and it’s quick and the kids ALWAYS eat it withoutContinue Reading

Mini Pot Pies

Finding foods that’ll make a toddler lick his plate is a sho ’nuff task. Once you’ve found something they like, you want to feed it to them for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, but that’s not practical. In fact, it might be child abuse :D! I make a lot of dishes that I think areContinue Reading

It’s My Anniversary: 14 Things Marriage Has Taught Me

14 years ago at the “tenderoni” age of 25, I married the most handsomest guy I’d ever seen! He was 1 month shy of his 22nd birthday, which made me a “Cougar”…to which I utter a soft, but proud RAAAAWRRR :D! The last few weeks, my hubby and I started reminiscing…laughing and chatting it up aboutContinue Reading

Spicy Fried Chicken Strips

I remember back in the day, there was a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant near our high school. It wasn’t really within walking distance for a lunch period, but sometimes the craving was so bad, we took the walk there and back risking a delayed return which would surely result in an in-house detention. At myContinue Reading

PThirty1 Meal Plan: February 2 – February 15

Howdy y’all! 😉 It has been a loooooong time since I’ve blogged. Not because I don’t care to write anymore; I’ve just been trying to keep up with my life. Once the holidays hit, I think I was stuck in a storm like Dorothy and Toto. I mean, where did the time go? All ofContinue Reading

Baked Veggie Omelet Muffins

Muffin cups are so convenient. They are the perfect size for the perfect serving for both adults and kids alike. For someone like me who is making an attempt at portion control, I need just about everything in a muffin! Can you fit a whole meal in this thing?? During my freezer cooking fits, IContinue Reading
