Menu Monday Week 4

Heather says We keep on keeping on. Life got away from us over the last couple of weeks, but it’s the 4th Monday of 2017 and that means a brand new chance to get on track. We have joined a local CSA*, which means we receive a weekly dividend of vegetables. We have limited choice…

Menu Monday Week 2

Heather says A few *ahem* years ago I had a teacher whose catchphrase was “Monitor and adjust”. It was her way of having a plan, but rolling with the punches and not going completely off the rails just because life isn’t playing the way you think it should.  Last week was one of those weeks…

Menu Monday Week 1

Heather says There’s nothing like a new year to rekindle the desire to be more organized, keep better tabs on the budget, and to be more efficient with my time (so we can do more fun things with our evenings together).  *Cue up the broken record* Menu planning is a great way to get your…

Menu Monday Week 47

Heather says Transparency – About six weeks ago my insomnia got bad enough that I finally visited my doctor. Bad enough is my euphemism for completely out of hand and I wish I’d gone sooner. The funk is clearing and I’m sleeping better which is giving me energy beyond the have-tos. We’d managed to keep…

Menu Monday Week #42 of 2016 –

Heather says This is one of those weeks where having a menu plan for the week is critical to our staying on budget. Most weeks, when I’m not traveling for work, I time shift. In other words, instead of working the standard 9 am – 5 pm, I am on 6 am – 2 pm.…

Menu Monday – Week 40

Heather says Well, it is definitely still hurricane season on the East Coast.  I know many of you who live on the East Coast are tired of the drama that accompanies these usually-and-thankfully-non-events.  While it looks like Matthew will make the S-curve and head out to sea, it bears watching. We’re going over our preparedness…

Menu Monday Week 39

Heather says: Fall is finally here, according to the calendar. I’m shaking off this year’s late summer funk and last Sunday I spent the afternoon reshooting some old recipes that need a little photographic love. I’m putting together an ebook of quick, budget-friendly weeknight dinners.  Since we have a wheat allergy in the house, everything…

Off Topic with an Menu Monday Attempt to Get it Together

Heather says Late summer is difficult around here. You’ve got the usual back to school hassle and sports starting up with four kids, we enter birthday season mid-August and before any of that happens, I start dreading an anniversary. For those that don’t know, my sister was killed  in August of ’13. It was a traumatic…

Menu Monday Week #26

Heather says Every year I delude myself thinking that the end of the school year will result in some down time. I don’t know where I get the idea, but it plants itself firmly in my mind and I hang onto it from February until school is done in late May / early June and then…

Menu Monday 2016 Week #17

Heather says: Do you ever have consistently over-estimate the amount of time and energy you’ll have in a given period? I’m right there, right now and paying for it. This weekend I forced myself offline, with the intention of spending a lot of time with my family. (Intentions are cute aren’t they?) What really happened…

Menu Monday Week #16

Heather says I hope everyone had a great week. I had a work trip to Salt Lake City, which is quickly turning into one of my favorite places. The company I work for, FeedBlitz*, was a sponsor of the SNAP conference. SNAP attendees are generally craft and DIY bloggers. For three days it looked like…

Menu Monday Week #14 of 2016

Heather says: Ray, my fiancé, is from Southern California and is the reason tacos seem to be on the menu every week.  Any suggestions for dinner this week, Ray? Tacos. Sigh.  As if that’s not enough tacos for anyone, every couple of weeks we visit a local taco truck / stand where I have fallen…

Menu Monday Week 11 of 2016

Heather says: So, let’s pretend last week didn’t happen, as it felt like herding cats more than anything. As an aside, is the site loading any faster for you? I’ve made some changes and I’m hoping they’ve helped, but I think some of the image changes made them look less sharp. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Have you tried any…

Menu Plan Monday Week 9 of 2016

Heather says Last week was a doozy. There was no plan as I was flying back from Salt Lake City on a redeye and I was buried in the day job until Friday afternoon. I don’t enjoy weeks like that, but it was the best kind of work-related busy. I’m ready for a normal*, routine…
