What's the Plan, Stan?

Tell me that I'm not the only person that has the moments of "Wow! This week was amazing! I'm going to put this effort into every week." And then before you know it, the next week comes and then another and suddenly it's, hey self, remember that one time when you had everything so well put together? Well, I hate it when that happens.

Double Take Greens

For ever now, I have been wanting to make a pot of Split Pea Soup, it's one of my favorites. Well, I finally got that accomplished. And why haven't I been making it all winter, I asked myself. Or soup in general. It was so easy and the leftovers made packing lunch easy peasy.. And Monday night, I also made a pot of chili, so all week we had either soup or chili to choose from - yummalicious! And then because my new breakfast smoothie recipe is also so fantastic, I'll share that with you too!

Coconut Braised Baby Bok Choy

Vegetables. That's what I wanted for dinner tonight was just a big plate of vegetables. Tonight's dinner was quick, fresh and so very flavorful. A curry seasoned chicken breast would be perfect to go along side this dish, but I wanted effortless and on the table now. The chicken will have to wait until another day.

Apple Waffles

I started to make up a batch of waffles and by the time I was done, this is what we ended up with. With a double dose of apples and a dash of cinnamon, they are a lovely comfort on a chilly morning.

Farewell Granola

The day is arriving that little Lottie is moving to a classroom of older kids. The teachers that she's had throughout her young days have had such a marvelous impact on her and she loves them so much, that I thought it would be nice to make them a farewell gift from her as she moves all the way across the hallway.
