#MonthofMeals: December Meal Plan

dec banner image

December is generally a month of gluttony: non-stop eating, drinking and shopping.  Sure, the shopping could be considered cardio (if you are actually shopping at a mall and not online), but let’s be honest.  December and gaining weight tend to go hand in hand.  And, if you think I’m going to tell you that I…

Thanksgiving Dinner Menu – Gobble Gobble!

thanksgiving menu

This past week has been a holiday food frenzy.  But not the holiday I was actually planning on planning.  Nope, not the Thanksgiving Dinner Menu.  It was a red and green sugar fest over here.  You see I had a big project for my grocery client to finalize.  Which had the unfortunate side effect of…

Yes, I know.  It’s November 6th.  I had grand visions of getting this #MonthofMeals November menu up early, then I simply fell behind.  Further, and further, and further.  It’s crazy.  I remember how it used to feel like days took forever.  Remember what it was like waiting for Christmas when you were a kid?  Now, months…

Weekly Meal Plan: Zucchini, Tomatoes and Corn. Oh my!

zucchini tomatoes and corn menu

Every week lately, it’s been the same: Zucchini, tomatoes, corn.  Zucchini tomatoes, corn.  Yep, that’s my CSA box and I don’t want to say I’m getting tired of summer’s super-red tomatoes and super sweet corn, but if I’m going to be honest with you… I’m kinda craving a brussel sprout right about now.  But what…

Feel Good Meal Plan

Sometimes you just gotta do what feels good.  And, in these last few weeks of summer before I send my oldest kid off to his first day of kindergarten, it’s felt darn good just to hang out with my boys.  We’ve been hitting up the pool, spending time at the lake, and playing legos.  Lots…

Summer Market – A Seasonal Veggie-Filled Meal Plan

summer market

This past weekend, we did a little Tour de Farmer’s Markets to prepare us for a seasonal summer market meal plan.  It was a blast, and I walked out with some incredible finds.  Shiitake and Oyster Mushrooms, Asparagus Beans (super-duper long green beans), Peruvian Purple Poatoes, and my favorite – Flavored Salts.   Adding to…

Healthy Summer Meal Plan

healthy summer meal plan

Gluttonous.  That’s what last week was.  Family gatherings. Parties. Date nights. Fun.  Yes, I lived my life with intention last week, and it was intentionally awesome.  This week, I plan to live intentionally lower-calorie. Yeah, last week sounds like more fun, doesn’t it?  Don’t worry.  You know me.  Healthy, lighter foods will never mean boring food…

Summer Feast: Weekly Meal Plan Collection

summer feast

Let’s be honest, I’m playing catch-up.  After being sick ALL of last week I’ve got two weeks of laundry, two weeks of running (yes, still trying to make up some miles even if I won’t hit 100 for the month!), and two weeks of work.  Bleh.  I’ve also got quite a bit of leftover produce…

A Do-Able Summer Menu: For Busy Families

This week is gonna be a normal week. I swear. That’s what I keep telling myself and for the last three months or so, I’ve failed to live up to my mantra.  Packing, moving, unpacking, birthday parties, holidays, travel, oh my.  But, this week…. This week, I’m going to go to the grocery store, pick…

Foodie Fam Weekly Meal Plan: Farmer’s Market Fare

farmers market fare

I’m back to real life!  Moved in and sorta settled.  Enough so that I know where my pots and pans are, my pantry is semi-stocked, and I can spend a little while each night cooking again.  WOOHOO!  After several months of feeling completely un-settled, it’s so nice to start feeling at home again.  And, nothing says…

Bloggers’ Favorites: a Mom Favorites Meal Plan

Take out Chinese.  Burritos. Chick-fil-A.  Some old strawberries.  Water straight from the faucet.  Yep, that’s pretty much been my “diet” these last few days.  Should’ve remembered to leave a few cups in the house for moving day.  Oops. Needless to say, I’m still not back into a cooking routine.  Hopefully, by next week, we’ll be…
