I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about broccoli salad all day, but I think I want to make one for a side dish for Christmas.  I haven’t really decided what we will be eating at this meal.  I’m just now starting to put the pieces together.  I’m sure Tiny Tot would prefer to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I didn’t know there were so many variations of a broccoli salad.  There are options with mayo and mayo substitutes.  I need to decide between grapes, blueberries, apples, and oranges.  There is a bacon and cheddar combination.  I didn’t think… View Post

My need for cookies the other day was strong.  I don’t know what it is about the holidays that makes me want to enjoy a good Christmas cookie.  Christmas cookies come in those different flavors that you don’t really experience year round.  I’m here to tell you I want to make those cookies but I didn’t.  I just made a good ole chocolate chip cookie and a sugar cookie. I blogged about how you shouldn’t suffer for holiday indulgence guilt so if you want to eat the cookie, eat the cookie. There are a few things I don’t keep in… View Post

It’s meal prep Sunday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend. I haven’t been a productive human today.  I enjoyed the peace and quiet in my house and napped on the couch and then watched the Cowboys lose a football game.  This game was not a good look for my Dallas Cowboys, but I will still root them on. I haven’t been blogging so I know that you’ve missed my meal prep post.  These posts are helpful not because you want to see what I’m eating, but so you can have different ideas on what to cook for your own… View Post

Hello all!  It’s been a long week but in the best way possible.  I’ve been inspired and motivated to do things.  I’m trying to do little changes to help me back in my flow.  This week I did do a meal prep but it more of a lazy meal prep.  (I’ll be doing some blogging about lazy meal prep very soon.) This week I had enough time to do a little meal prep so I did the things that were easy.  I stocked the fridge with the usual fruits: blueberries, strawberries and this week’s new addition, watermelon.  It’s been my… View Post

There was basically no meal prep this week.  I’ve been trying to get to the blog all week, but it’s always been the last thing.  I want to start off this post by thanking everyone for the birthday wishes.  Seeing all of those messages made me feel very special.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Last week I had everything together, this week it’s just been a struggle.  It has been an odd week.  My birthday was Monday so we went out to eat.  Tuesday was just a rush filled day and I got some fish tacos from… View Post
