Meal Planning

Meal Planning started when I ran a home daycare. With 7 kids needing two snacks and lunch per day, plus my own family to feed dinner to, daily organization was needed! Meal planning helped ensure we had a variety of nutritional content, food wasn’t wasted and I was using my prep time wisely. Trying toContinue reading “Meal Planning”

Let’s Talk Tupperware

Mismatched container, missing lids, and so many pieces aren’t actually tupperware brand! This drawer tends to be the disaster of most kitchens. But it doesn’t have to be. It doesn’t even take a lot of work to keep it organized! Our containers have changed over the years. With two kids in school and a husbandContinue reading “Let’s Talk Tupperware”

French Onion Soup

I used to hate onions. I would pick them out of spaghetti sauce, and could never have imagined that I would love a soup who’s main ingredient was onion!
