Menu Plan Monday ~ June 22

Summer seems like it’s quickly slipping by, and I’ve been terrible at planning our menus, which has resulted in too many dinners out and too much money spent.  I’m working to fix that, starting with our menu plans.  They really are a time saver and a stress reliever!  I just need to remember to work...

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 9

I’m jumping back on the Menu Planning bandwagon after being absent for a while.  I NEEEEEED Menu Planning to stay sane!  It helps me to save money at the grocery store and to save my sanity at dinner time when I’m scrambling to figure out what to cook.  I’ve recently starting substitute teaching, and while...
Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza

You might be tired of hearing me say this, but my family loves to make pizza.  We eat homemade pizza weekly, and I’m always trying to find new ways to dress up our dough.  This week we had Tacos on the menu for dinner, and I doubled the batch of taco meat that I made...
BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you’ve probably caught the fact that I’m a huge fan of making homemade pizza for dinner.  It’s my go-to easy dinner.  I always have dough in the freezer to defrost whenever I need to come up with something for dinner.  One of my favorite...
Chicken Pesto Pizza

Chicken Pesto Pizza

I love pesto so much, and I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate it into new recipes.  At the end of each summer, when the basil plants resemble bushes and our CSA share is full of basil I find myself making mass quantities of Homemade Pesto and freezing it for the winter months.  There’s...

Menu Plan Monday ~ October 6

I am really struggling with planning (and sticking to plans) for dinners.  School nights are getting the best of me with extra curricular activities.  I need to find some balance.  Last week I did pretty good though, I not only made some great meals, but was even able to make some “extras” to stretch for...

Fresh Caprese Pizza

 It seems like this is the season when gardens are teeming with tomatoes and basil, so we’ve been doing our best to take advantage of this and use lots of fresh basil and tomatoes in our meals.  And you already know we love homemade pizza.  So we combined our love of fresh basil & tomatoes...

White Pizza with Lemon Basil & Grilled Chicken

Lately I’ve been making quite a bit of White Pizza with Lemon Basil and Chicken.  Lemon Basil is one of my all-time favorite fresh summer herbs, and lucky for me I always get plenty of lemon basil in my CSA!  In the past I’ve done several different things with the lemon basil, my favorite being...

Menu Plan Monday ~ July 1

How in the world is it possible that it’s already July?!?!  Our summer break is practically flashing before our eyes!  We’ve been staying very busy this summer with all kinds of adventures from our Summer Bucket List, but I’ve still been pretty good about making our meals at home instead of too much eating out.  Although...

Menu Plan Monday ~ June 24

We’re still going full tilt, enjoying our summer vacation.  We went to COSI last week, we went swimming, I attended two awesome events in Cincinnati and learned about two companies giving back to our community (more on those soon), we had a great party with Michael’s cousins, Michael took part in Paddlefest (and bought a...
