Menu Posts for Busy Moms

We got a little bit of snow this weekend, which was perfect for the soup dinner that I had planned for Saturday night. This week’s menu plan has some soup in it as well, along with some new-to-us recipes that we’ve been wanting to try.

My middle school-er has been wanting to learn to cook for some time now, and so we’re slowly teaching her how to make some simple meals.

In fact, this weekend, she mad us some jam danish that she learned to make in her cooking class at school. They weren’t on plan, but I did enjoy 2 of them…it gave her so much pleasure to see her family eating and enjoying something that she made herself 🙂

This weekend, she’s going to make dinner for us, using a slow cooker recipe for enchilada bowls. We found this recipe at our pediatrician’s office; they had a selection of healthy recipes that kids can make, and she is so excited to try it. The best part is that it’s a THM-friendly recipe (an E meal)!

If it works out, I might try posting it here on the blog 🙂

As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.

    We had snow last year at this time but this year we have had terrible wind. It was bitterly cold with all that wind but no snow. My sister-in-law in Alabama actually got snow recently which doesn’t happen very often.

    So great to hear your daughter is enjoying learning to cook. This week we will be starting our holiday baking. I think we will start out with making cookie dough for the freezer and then progress to making candy. I’m hoping to have it done by this weekend.

    I hope you have a great week and the snow doesn’t get too bad.
