Weekly Menu 3/12/17

I was so excited last week about cooking with Blue Apron I couldn’t wait to get my shipment.  I kept checking the front porch all day Friday anxiously awaiting my box.  Once night fell I grew a bit concerned.  Why haven’t I gotten my Blue Apron package yet?  It said it would be here by 8:00 pm at the latest.  So I finally went back and double checked the ship date.  Much to my disappointment I had the dates wrong.

Weekly Menu 3/5/17

March 5th Weekly MenuI’m excited to be cooking with Blue Apron again this week.  I deactivated my account after giving it a try a few months ago (see my review here).  The meals we received were delicious but a little time consuming to make. They still sent me emails with upcoming menus and this week’s menu got my mouth watering so I decided to reactivate. Continue reading “Weekly Menu 3/5/17”

Weekly Menu – 2/26/17

Woohoo!  I made it through hosting 3 parties in 1 short month!  I’ll be sharing the details of my sister’s baby shower soon.  But first, one more week of overlapping winter & spring sports.

Weekly Menu 2/19/17

Another busy week as winter and spring sports overlap, which means I’m depending on my Slow Cooker and Instant Pot to get dinner on the table.  I love that the Instant Pot can function as both.  I recently ordered the glass lid on Amazon for when I use the Instant Pot as a slow cooker.  I haven’t gotten rid of my slow cooker though.   Continue reading “Weekly Menu 2/19/17”

Weekly Menu 2/12/17

February is kicking my butt.  Why are so many things packed into such a short month?  Needless to say my menu planning has gotten a little lax.  We’re still doing Core de Force, and already noticing results, but I’m not using the 21 Day Fix tally sheets to create a portion controlled menu. I’m relying heavily on Instant Pot & Slow Cooker recipes to get dinner on the table.
