As previously mentioned, one of my goals for this New Year was to be more intentional about cooking and preparing our meals. I wanted to eat less processed foods and waste less money grabbing quick fast food dinner for our family.
I spent weeks scouring Pinterest looking for recipes that were quick, had few ingredients and would be enjoyed by our entire family. Once I had them compiled together on a board, I created a list of each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) so that every day I would know what I was making and could just pull up the recipe on my Pinterest board.
It has been one of the single best things I could have done.
Not only do I not have to wake up and wonder what I will make each day but I have something that literally helps to reinforce not settling for unhealthy foods. I have changed up some of the things I served on what days so that if Little Miss M was having a bad afternoon, I could cook something a bit easier to ease some of the stress.
I plan to actually type up a full calendar for next month to share of each meal and the links to the recipes. I wish I had the time to do it now but it has been REALLY hard to find time to get that done with all the craziness around here. There’s always tomorrow right?
In the meantime, I thought I would share a few of our favorites so far with you today. To view the recipes, just click on the descriptions below. I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we have!
(These can be done with homemade waffles which is what we plan to do UNLESS we are on a time crunch like we were when we made these.)
