Meal Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Detox Edition

Hello Friends!!  I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a nice break from work and/or school!  To be honest, I was so sad to send the kids back to school today.  Except for a few squabbles here and there, they played so well together over our break, and though it’s nice to have a little quiet today, I miss them!  Also, I was not prepared for my 6am alarm going off (that I snoozed until 7!)…it was SO hard[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Edition

Hello Friends!  Happy Thanksgiving Week!  We had a wonderful weekend in Blue Ridge with my family, and are looking forward to heading to South Carolina on Tuesday to spend some time with Scott’s family.  It’s nice to have this whole week off so that we have time to run back and forth between both families, and then be home to celebrate Thanksgiving Day quietly at home with my sweet little family. What about you?  What do your plan entail?  Are[Read more]

Loaded Hummus

Sometimes when Scott’s away for dinner or out of town, I just don’t feel up to cooking a big dinner for me and the kids.  I fall back on frozen lasagna (I keep one in the freezer at all times just in case), waffles and bacon, or Spahgettios (they LOVE them!), and I make myself a little mezze platter instead of an actual dinner.  A plate of olives, nuts, a little cheese and maybe salami, and Loaded Hummus.  We are big[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday…and Something New!

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a nice, restful weekend!  We got out of the house and walked around our sweet little local downtown area, and went to the most precious new children’s bookstore that is pretty much the best children’s bookstore ever.  But more about that later this week.  Today, as I do each Monday, I’m sharing our meal plan for the week! If you’re not familiar with my blog, I LOVE meal planning for our family and post our[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend– we took it eeeeeeeeasy on Saturday, which was so nice.  I actually got a few organizational projects done around the house, but never even changed out of my jammies.  I LOVE days like that every once in a while!  Watched football, ate soup, and rested.  Much needed! We have a pretty crazy week coming up, so we don’t have complicated dinners planned, but lots of comfort food.  Here’s what we’ll be eating! Chicken[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday and Happy Halloween!

Hi Friends!  We had a big weekend of Halloween festivities, and Lord, we still have tonight to go!!  My little cuties are Anger, Joy, and Sadness from Inside Out, and Scott and I even joined in on the fun yesterday for our church Trunk or Treat! 🙂 The kids were really into their characters, haha! So this week has several quick and easy options, since nobody wants to sit down for a big dinner right before trick-or-treating, am I right?![Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was a mixed bag- we had a great Friday afternoon with friends at our local pumpkin patch, but then Saturday morning Brantley and I were both struggling with sore throats and allergies!  But we stayed inside most of the day and rested, and started feeling a little better yesterday. Anyway, on this Meal Plan Monday, here’s what we are planning on eating this week: Salad Tacos and Spicy Black Bean Soup[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We lounged, watched a lot of football, I released some creative energy and did some DIY projects and painting, and we tried to prepare as we head back to school today after a great fall break!  And of course, after a week of taking it easy, we are jumping in head first with a CRAZY BUSY week ahead of us.  But at least our meal plan will attempt to keep us on[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We ushered in our Fall Break with a trip to our local small town Fall Festival, which was so much fun, and then took it easy the rest of the weekend.  We have been SO busy lately, so we have been looking forward to Fall Break for an opportunity to relax!  Anyway, we’ll be here a bit and gone a bit, but I still planned a decent little meal plan for the[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent Saturday at the Farmers Market, and then at the football field watching the girls cheer, and then watching football on tv for the rest of the weekend!  Honestly, I am SO not ready for this week, but that’s never stopped a Monday from coming so far, so I went ahead wrote out our meal plan like usual, haha.  Thankfully, it’s a short week since our Fall Break starts on[Read more]
