No Excuse November Day 24: Think About It Thursday πŸ‚πŸƒπŸ

Happy Thanksgiving! Today, I reflect on all the wonderful Thanksgivings I have been blessed with and everything I am thankful for! Life is not always easy and will never be perfect because there are no perfect people, but there is always so much to be thankful for. What are you reflecting on today?

“Thanksgiving reminds us that no matter what befalls us in life, we can take the charred remnants and we can reconstruct a life unimaginably richer than that from which the shards and pieces fell.”     ~ CRAIG D. LOUNSBROUGH

β€œBe thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”     ~ OPRAH WINFREY

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 8: Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tueday! This week, it was hard to pick a favorite tasty dish because I had a few!

The winner was the Blue Apron dish One-Pot Tomato & Parmesan Risotto with Crispy Prosciutto. I had never cooked Risotto before, and my husband wasn’t sure he had ever eaten it, so this was a first for us both!

What did you have that was tasty this week?

Blogtober Day 30: Step it up sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level………

My weekend was pretty busy, so my time to prep for the week was limited. I knew I really had to utilize my time wisely. Sunday morning, I made waffles for breakfast. I decided to double the recipe, so I would have a couple extra for later in the week. Since I cook breakfast every morning, I knew this would save me some time during the week, therefore making my mornings smoother.

For waffles and pancakes, I like to use Millville Protein with Oats mix from Aldi’s. I like to add egg whites (1/3 cup per batch) to add more protein and make them a little fluffier. Sometimes, I add chopped peacans and chocolate chips (bake believe or lily’s brand).

What was something you did last weekend to prepare for the workweek?

Blogtober Day 23: Step It Up Sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level……..

I recently got an amazing deal to try Blue Apron ($119 off the first 5 boxes plus a $200 gift card that would come before the 3rd box ships). I have always wanted to try Blue Apron, but the price kept me away. This special made it resonable and kept us from eating out because we had special meals to look forward to.

These are the meals we got in our first box; the smaller picture shows what they actually looked like once I prepared them.

I will let you know my favorite on Tasty Tuesday. All three meals really leveled up our week!

Have you ever tried a meal delivery service? If so, which one? Do you feel it helped level up your week?

Be Peaceful,
