Supper

Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

For the last decade, I have cast aside my cookbooks. I love to read cookbooks, but it just seems too much of a pain to actually use them in the kitchen when I have a computer and Pinterest.  However. In the last 6 months, I’ve bought 7 cookbooks, and I decided that if I’m going to buy them, I really should use them.  This week ... Read More »

Meal Planning Week 8

meal-plan-monday

What a week. Halloween on a Monday. Who planned that?!! I vote we move Halloween to the last Saturday of October. Who’s with me?!! As a parent (and a teacher) I think that would be the best move for everyone! It’s going to be one of those weeks already. On Tuesday, I have a staff meeting after work. I head ... Read More »

Ham & Spinach Quiche {Layered Mediterranean Pie}

Layered Mediterranean Pie

 This Ham & Spinach Quiche has been one of my favourite meals since my mom discovered it in a Robin Hood Flour booklet years and years ago. Although we follow the same recipe, my mom’s ‘Layered Mediterranean Pie,’ as they called it in this booklet, is always better than mine. I don’t know how she does it. Perhaps the ingredient that ...

Meal Planning Week 7

meal-plan-monday

Well, it’s getting harder and harder to sit down and actively plan for my meals, as life gets busier. I’m going to keep on doing it, because it is a real life-saver, but at least I’m not starting from scratch.  I’m going back to Week 1 and drawing inspiration from it (read: copying it). Week 7 Monday: My birthday supper! Going ... Read More »

Meal Planning – Week 6

meal-plan-monday

 Hello! Welcome to Week 6 of my Meal Planning! I honestly can’t believe that I made it six weeks! It has been a real life-saver, knowing what to have for meals! Again, I think it only worked so well because I just planned for the week days, and I allowed for some repeats/leftovers, since my family doesn’t mind. I think ... Read More »

Meal Planning – Week 5

meal-plan-monday

Well, here I am at week five, still following my meal plan!  I like the flexibility of planning the five days of the week, and leaving the weekend up to a spontaneous meal (or my husband…). Week 5 Monday: Leftover Thanksgiving food Tuesday: Pork Chops and Rice Wednesday: Shepherd’s Pie Thursday: Shepherd’s Pie (fortunately my family doesn’t mind leftovers or ... Read More »

Meal Planning Week 3

meal-plan-monday

Look at this! I’m on week 3, and I’m still planning my meals! Just a few more weeks to get through, and I’ll have a good rotation to cycle through! It’s been really helpful knowing what is for meals, since that’s more than half the battle. I like leaving weekends open, because we often end up somewhere, or just having something ... Read More »

Meal Planning Week 1 & 2

meal-plan-monday

I am so proud of myself! I’m finally doing some intentional meal planning! I have one full day home with no kids, and teach the other four days. I really need to make that one day count, so my plan is to plan/cook for the whole week on that day off. I did it for one week already and it ... Read More »

Peanut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker

Peanut Squash Soup in the Slowcooker

Full disclosure, folks. I didn’t create this Peanut Squash Soup recipe – I did alter it a bit and adapt for the slow cooker, but I didn’t dream it up. All I know is that the sister of a friend of mine makes this recipe often, and shared it on Facebook. Our family enjoyed it SO much this past weekend ... Read More »

Weekly Meal Plan, Week 4

Featured Meal-Plan-Menu-4

Good Monday morning! I hope that your day started off better than mine – it was just ‘one of those mornings’ with 4 meltdowns split between 2 kids – we did manage to make record time to school, though, in spite of the fact that 2 of the melt downs occurred on the way to school.  Things have since calmed ...
