Working MomWhat’s for Dinner: Everything I found on sale?

Okay so I have been a great cook this week. I made Renae's Asparagus soup on Monday! Yummy. I cooked it a little differently because I steam additional asparagus for baby food. It was yummy. Then on Tuesday night I made Connie's Lasgna and this recipe I threw together with all my on sale items. I made two dinners on Tuesday so I didn't have to cook on Wednesday just reheat. I think lasagna taste better on the second day. The Chicken Bake 1 can of cream of mushroom soup 1 tsp of ...

I Threw it Together Dinner of Fish and Veggies I had 20 minutes and soccer to content with. I opened the freezer and began the treasure hunt. I spotted frozen flounder. Score.

I served it on a bed of polenta. Voila! The adults topped it with salsa. The kids just ate it topped with the alouette cheese spread and ...

Polenta Recipe

I try each week to tackle motherhood, working, co-owning a business and trying to be creative in the kitchen. I have come a long way from thinking you boil the water for 7 minutes then you add the pasta sauce. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I would have a super picture for you of this great meal but I didn't have the card in my camera as I snapped away.  Yes, I am embarrassed to admit that but I got the family fed. This recipe was submitted by Heather.  This was super yummy and ...

What’s for Dinner Wednesday: Once-A-Month cooking saves my sanity

Once –A- Month cooking saves the day! Well in fact it saved the day  twice this week once with Mexican Chili and the other night with Mexican Spicy Salads. They were both hits. I am a crazy person lately and at 4:00 PM I realize soon it will be 5:00 and my nice children will turn into complaining and shrieking messes because they are hungry. It is my job to feed them and save myself from the 5:00 PM freak out. I walked over to the freezer and pulled out 3 bean Mexican Chili. I threw it in a pan ...

Cream Chicken Pasta and the Brie Strata

This presents a huge problem at meal time. I came across the Once A Month cooking method and decided to attempt their free one week meal plan. I started last week but I didn't eat anything I made because my husband was out of the country and I was in survival mode. Click here to see how I got started. ...
