Plans & Plates: MUFFINS!!! & Week 46

I love it when a good plan comes together.  Does anyone else remember hearing that often from their childhood?  I can close my eyes and picture my Pop Pop Frank sitting in his chair watching A-Team.  It is one of my happier memories.  That and Hogan’s Heroes.  But more than that…  I remember the smells […]

Plans & Plates: Apple Pear Crisp Recipe & Week 44

Lofty goals…  That’s what I had!  Lofty goals.  Okay, maybe not lofty but I definitely did not pay attention while I menu planned.  I saw “easy”, “instant pot” and a delicious picture.  I need to be more thorough when I look through recipes for menu plans though.  Almost every one of them required prep work […]

Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancakes in a Mug

My family was scavenging early Sunday morning.  It was the week of payday aka the week that the refrigerator is completely empty all of the sudden.  Everyone was getting a little whiney.  This one wanted eggs.  That one wanted pancakes.  Someone suggested frozen waffles.  Everyone shot that down.  And to be quite honest, I did […]

Fit Foodie: Ruined by eggs

Some weeks you have it all figured out…  Other weeks it’s spaghetti-os and hot dogs for dinner.  This was a week with great intention but then ruined by the egg recall and dwindling motivation after that to get to the store for more.  We were able to pull things together before the asparagus went bad…so there’s […]

Fit Foodie: No Griping.
