For some reason I went CRAZY the other day and decided to tackle 5 recipes in one day. By 8pm I was like “what in the freaking hell was I thinking?”. What I was originally thinking is “oh Mark will be home by 4 that will give me pleantly of time to make 5 meals”. Was I… Continue reading 5 Freezer Meals and 4 Hours Later
Most of the time I feel like trying to figure out what to make for dinner is half the battle. Especially when I’m not in the mood to cook, shop…or even stand. Mark made his amazing guac last night (seriously, so yum) and it was about to be dead as doornails today, so I decided to… Continue reading Guacamole Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries

This buys me about 1.5 minutes… Continue reading Mac and Cheese with Broccoli, Bacon and Chicken
Today was Mark’s first day back at work after a 2 week leave period. Is it a joke that they come back from deployment, and then have to go back to work? Like here’s your husband back, but wait now we are taking him back again. Ummm no. So this is the reason I love to… Continue reading King Ranch Chicken
