Meal Planning – OK I Did It.

So I did it, we will eat again!  Basically I changed it up a tiny bit.  One of the major problems was that the sophisticated recipes I was making were making my kids, especially Brooke, gag.  I would be exhausted from the arduous process of following a recipe after a long day of work, with…

Cool New Health “Trick”

Thanks to a helpful buddy, I recently found out this little trick.  Every time I feel a sickness come on, I scramble for some Airborne.  It’s kind of a pain because I’m not used to putting it into my routine.  If it’s not in my routine, I can’t remember where I put it, if we…

Meal Planning – OK, Got It.

Here’s the calendar for the rest of this week.  I’ll have to go shopping tomorrow night after work, which really stinks (I’ll be tired and grouchy), and means we’ll have a really late dinner.  I have to say I did start feeling a little burned out on all this organization and predictability, I’m glad I…

Meal Planning – Off the Wagon

Well, it was bound to happen eventually, but it’s ok.  It’s been a busy time with Easter, plus a sudden massive increase in my workload, which is wonderful, so I can’t complain.  I will get back on track though, hopefully tonight, so I’ll post as soon as I have the calendar updated.  Until then, have…

Meal Planning – What a week.

It’s been a very full and busy week, one with two nights of takeout (gasp!).  After all the cooking we’ve been doing for the past month or so, I think we’ve earned it.  This week is one of my busiest of the year.  I’m working on a big bi-annual alumnae newsletter for a summer camp…

Gluten Free Recipe Search

Just in time for allergy season, Punchfork released a gluten-free recipe search!  Here’s the link: http://punchfork.com/glutenfree.  Pretty nifty! Many of you have asked me how my gluten free diet is going, and well, it’s not, exactly.  I’ve made several GF dinners, and they’re awesome, but I realized something, I don’t really eat very much gluten…

Meal Planning – I lost 5 pounds!

About a year ago I started working at a job at a really crappy company.  There were a lot of things that made it crappy, but one of them is that it caused me to gain 10 pounds.  There were a lot of restaurants around, so it made it too easy to buy lunches with…

Meal Planning – Do or do not, there is no try!

This meal planning thing has really helped us in a lot of ways.  I haven’t had that shooting worry that used to hit me every day around 4:45 when I realized it was time to come up with a dinner idea, because all my options are right there in the fridge waiting for me.  I…

Confession: I’m not going grocery shopping.

I’ve been really good these last few weeks.  I’ve cooked like a mother.  I’m organized like a Martha.  My fridge has leftovers.  The sun is shining, and my kids are embracing the peaceful vibe.  There’s no need to create activity to keep people busy.  The store can wait day or two. UPDATE!  I went!  I…
