It has been a rough couple weeks of illness in my household. My poor husband is still sick, but I seem to be over it for the most part. That means it’s time to refocus and get back on the wagon with Spark. We weren’t super bad the last week or s... Read more

It’s be a hectic couple of weeks and I kept forgetting to blog. Trying to back on track, because it really helps me stay accountable. All is set except Friday. I have an extra steak and I’m not sure what I want to do with it. This week’s menu: ... Read more

Hard to believe I’m in Week four already. Pretty sure I’ll need a back up for Friday’s meal as I’m not a mushroom fan, but we’ll see. My husband will love it at least. Monday: Pork burritos Tuesday: Shrimp and grits Wednesday: Spaghetti Thursda... Read more

One thing I’ve done for a while is menu plan each week. We don’t really meal prep, but we try to have our meals planned out for the week. We started this to help us save more money and stop eating out so much. We aren’t always perfect, but we’ve... Read more
