Hello Monday + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends!  I haven’t done a post like this in quite a while and thought I’d share the things I’m saying hello to on this overcast Monday… Hello Quiet House The kids are back in school today after a week off for mid-winter break.  As much as I loved the break and time off with the kiddos, I am so glad to get back into our routine and get their schedules back to normal.  My kids thrive on routine, and a[Read more]

My Favorite Instant Pot Recipes + Weekly Meal Plan

If you follow along with any of my meal planning or recipe posts, you know that I looooooove my Instant Pot.  It’s the electric pressure cooker that I got Christmas 2016  and used it so much over the last year that I leave it out on the countertop all the time.  We use it almost daily for one thing or another and is easily my favorite appliance in the kitchen.  I know it was a very popular Christmas gift again this[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

I have to admit, I’m getting really excited about Thanksgiving dinners!  We’ll get a couple family dinners, and then on actual Thanksgiving Day, my little family just stays home and has Thanksgiving just the five of us.  It’s one of my very favorite days of the year- we make our family favorites, eat, relax, and enjoy each other’s company!  We might throw in a Christmas movie too, to kick off the season. 🙂  But this week, we’re sticking to our plant-based[Read more]

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

I love a good frivolous celebration, and so Pi Day last week was the perfect excuse to have a sweet treat after dinner to celebrate a made-up holiday!  I wanted to make something very simple with very few ingredients, and this ice cream pie was perfect! As Ben and I walked into Kroger, I got the idea for the ice cream pie.  A pre-made pie crust filled with ice cream and a yummy topping would make for a super easy,[Read more]

Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

One of our very favorite side dishes is Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts.  When we ask Ben what he wants for dinner, his response is always the same– “Steak and Brussels Sprouts!”   When we grill during the fall and summer, we make them on almost a weekly basis, but they are really great with pork, chicken, fish- all year round (clearly, they’re our go-to side dish with steaks!).  And if you’ve never had brussels sprouts or are convinced that you[Read more]

Hello Monday + Our Weekly Meal Plan Menu

Hello Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We braved the torrential rains and had a productive Saturday, then watched The Girl on the Train (movie was so-so, and per the usual, the book was about a thousand times better).  Sunday we had a great morning in church, and then cheered on our Falcons as they became NFC champions!  On to the Super Bowl!  What a year so far!!  Here’s a few more things we’re saying hello to today… Hello[Read more]

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

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

Hellllloooooo Friends!  We are back from the beach (post coming soon!), and trying to get back into the swing of things since we only have  A WEEK AND A HALF of summer left!!!  Brantley and Grayson start 2nd grade and Kindergarten (WHAAAAAAT) a week from Wednesday, so we have 9 days to cram in the last bits of summer fun and back to school prep that we can!  And also a bit of down/relaxation time, since their little worlds are[Read more]
