Time to Eat

I find that meal time is one of the hardest times of the day... After a full day with a little girl who rarely naps my energy level is just spent by then. I try to last minute figure out something to make or call the hubby and about a Pizza?  As we all know, out to eat is not necessarily great on the pocket book.

After a great speaker from MOPS came and spoke with us about organization around the house and how to make things more peaceful I decided to start menu planning as my first project. Last week was my first week of actually having a calendar on my frig and on Sunday I planned each meal and what it would be for the week. EXCITING, I know...well maybe I am just excited. We didn't go out to eat once and we tried some new things...

Then, Ben challenged me last week to find 30 different dinner items/ideas so that I have 30 different types of meals for the month! So if you have some great recipes to share or have any other ideas...Let me know!

My goal is to make things a little more easy going so when dinner time comes we can enjoy each other plus what OCD (obsessive compulsive) person doesn't love organization?!

So tonight for dinner it is Chow Mein Hot Dish-recipe from my mom!

(Have to add a cute photo---nothing to do with food)


  1. That sounds like a lot of fun. Now that we are back from vacation, I am getting back into some of my favorite recipes too. I love Addy in the trash can :).

  2. I would love to swap recipes! Oh, and love the picture of Addy in the garbage can with leaves. I'm going to be posting a very similar one of my kiddos soon. :)

  3. I'm WAY behind in my blog viewing, but saw this pic of Addy in the trash can - SO CUTE!!! :) And a great idea for meal planning. I could use some of that - if I could just find the time. :)
