what we ate feb 15-21, 2015


Hi!  How’s your Monday going?  I started out with this delicious plate of strawberry whole wheat yogurt pancakes, apple chicken sausage and extra strawberries plus some raisins on the way to teach.  On Mondays I teach Body Pump and fitness yoga.  The perfect combo to start out my week! Here’s a look at what we […]

what we ate feb 1-14, 2015


Heyo! Here’s a look at what we ate for dinners over the past couple of weeks. My secret recipe club reveal (the yummy baked pumpkin oatmeal) took my normal Monday post date so instead of throwing it in sometime later in the week, I decided to combine them together.  A double dose of dinner ideas […]

save money by combining ingredients + budget meal plan {oct 14-18}

Did you all catch the yummy cinnamon rolls I shared last night?  They’re mighty good the next day too… just sayin’. Over the weekend I didn’t cook a lot.

Here’s a look […]

Hello!  How are you all doing?  I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday, can you?  We were gone over the weekend, catching up with some friends – Jacob did lots of kid playing.  There were 5 kids total, the littlest one didn’t do much playing though. We also spent time with family and joined in for […]

Grocery shopping was a bit more challenging this week, as far as staying within my $100 budget.  Before I share about that, here’s what we have planned to eat for the week! Saturday: chipotle lime grilled chicken skewers with avocado ranch + corn on the cob The avocado ranch was definitely needed – these chicken […]
