Friday Favorites: Instant Pot Recipes

This week going back to school after 2 1/2 weeks off has about killed us all!  It has been a little tough getting back into the swing of things- bedtimes and routines, work schedules and carpool lines, we are all worn out!  But here I am, with one more post this week, about the one thing that has saved dinner this week- my new Instant Pot! I was so happy to get an Instant Pot for Christmas this year!  If[Read more]

Hello Monday + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and if you live in Atlanta, that you survived Snowpocalypse 2017: All in good fun… 🙂  We were predicted to get snow, and we got a good sleet, and that was about it.  I even went to the store like the crazy Georgia fools that we are and stocked up on the neccessities.  You know, like wine, haha!  But, I will say, that when we had that freak snow/ice storm two[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It got COLLLLLLLDDDDDDD the end of last week, so we had a fire going all weekend long, which is pretty much perfection to me when combined with twinkly Christmas lights and a bottle of wine.  And except for a few last-minute things and stocking stuffers, I am done with Christmas shopping!  And that is great, because we have two SUPER BUSY weeks leading up to Christmas!  Which is also why my[Read more]

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]
