This Week’s Dinner Menu

Today, I went grocery shopping for basically the first time since I’ve been home. And we were pretty desperate for some good food. I love to cook, and my husband is pretty used to having a home cooked meal each night. He gets bummed when we eat at a fast food place because he loves my food so much. It… Read more →

Family Dinner: Chilaquiles

So, I’m pretty sure that everyone has their own version of this dish. I mean, I’m not even sure if I’m spelling it right.

On tonight’s menu, I have a plan to make pork chops, macaroni and cheese, a little sauteed corn, and some cheese rolls. I like to make dinner most nights because I feel like it’s one of the best ways to take care of my family. Growing up, my mom always made a home cooked meal that we would enjoy together.… Read more →

I’ve Created a Monstrosity

So, I’ve mentioned before that I like to cook and make new recipes. Lately, I have been trying to budget pretty hardcore, so we aren’t buying a whole lot of snacking food. So I’ve had to kind of create different meals to keep me from getting hungry during the day. I don’t know about you, but I love ramen. It’s… Read more →
