Meal Planning (3/30-4/3)


Does anyone else get excited when a week crosses over into a new month? Just me? I can’t believe it’s April. The weather was winter-ish last week, and this week absolutely gorgeous. Last night we took a twilight walk with Kaitlan and the pups and I kept saying to Neil, “can we do this every […]

Meal Planning (3/22-3/28)


I know, it’s already Wednesday and I’m just now publishing what we are eating this week. Ah well, had to get the Jerk Chicken recipe out first right? Neil did the meal planning and grocery list this week so we are having a little mix of everything. As you might have seen, we are starting the […]

Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Jamaican Jerk Chicken - Kohler Created

Changing it up this week and starting out with a recipe for Jamaican Jerk Chicken that we made over the weekend. My best friend Patrick sent us the recipe mid-week last week and when Friday rolled around we collected all the ingredients and prepared it for our first meal of this week. As I mentioned […]

Meal Planning (2/15-3/21)

Sorry, I literally dumped everything out on the counter when I got home, and the picture became kind of the afterthought. Very lazy blogger. I tackled grocery shopping with Kaitlan solo this week! Okay, that’s not a supreme accomplishment, she LOVES the grocery store. So much to see and look at, and of course, she grabs […]

Meal Planning (3/8-3/14)

Another week, and somehow we are already halfway through March! It’s blowing my mind that Kaitlan will be 7 months old in a week. Her sixth month just flew by and I have a feeling 7 months will be no different. Sometimes I want her to slow down, but each week gets more exciting! This […]

Meal Planning (3/1 – 3/7)


Last week’s meals went a long way, Orange chicken went a day longer than we thought, and tacos went a day longer than we thought. Definitely not complaining, it was nice not having to worry about meals at the end of the week. It does mean however that our pizza night will get moved to sometime […]

Meal Planning (2/22 – 2/28)

Pork Steaks in the Cast iron pan - Kohler Created

Our grilled “TBD” meal from Friday — hot wings! Our first week attempting to return to more diligent meal planning went great! We didn’t get a chance to try the interesting technique we found for spaghetti squash and meatballs because we ended up taking a rest day from the gym and just doing it all […]

Meal Planning (2/16 – 2/20)


One of my biggest takeaways from the Whole30/Nutrition Challenge is that I have kind of checked out on being involved in the meal planning for the past year. It wasn’t intentional. I went from the holidays, to pregnant and nauseated by the kitchen, to just being plain tired all the time, to having a baby […]

Week 3: Whole30/Nutrition Challenge

kaitlan eating cauliflower - Kohler Created

I ate my weight in salad and meat last week — and loved every minute of it. For me, being half-way through any challenge marks a shift in mindset from survival to planning ahead. I hit a rough patch about midway through the week, but when I came out on the other side (despite a […]

Vitamin D

Pork Butt - Kohler Created

A few random ditties from the weekend. We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend! After getting down into the negatives last week, it got to nearly 70 on Saturday! We got outside and took a really long walk. Kaitlan is officially old enough for the front-facing attachment on the stroller — and she LOVES it. She […]
