A good friend of mine has become a consultant for Pampered Chef. I am -so- excited. I loved Pampered Chef shows when I was a child ( I went with my mother ). I’ve always loved cooking tools. The more you buy, the more your family rejoices!

I like to sit down and plan a month’s worth of meals, that way when the day comes I don’t even feel like thinking about food, I can refer to my list. The decision’s already been made.
This also helps me build my grocery list. Breakfast and Lunch are usually simple and easy ( eggs, sandwich, soup, or oatmeal ) so I don’t plan those.
Blue marked meals mean its the week my stepson is with us, so I choose things I know he will eat ( or we can at least get him to try ).
I am attempting to move towards more healthy meals filled with veggies and more proteins and less creams and carbs. Big M wants to lose some weight, and the only way that’s going to happen is by changing our dinner menu.
I bought a 7 Qt. dutch oven and I plan on getting some good use of it this year!
