Cheese Beef and Noodle

Check out this low calorie Cheese Beef & Noodle Casserole we had for dinner tonight. It’s one of the 10 meals our favorite cook made for us. It’s definitely a keeper and freezer friendly!


I got this recipe out of the Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook {also available on Kindle} I purchased a while back.

Goals for 2013

Sorry for the delay in getting this update out to you. Spring seems to be such a crazy time of year…recitals, evaluations, projects, yard work, etc. I can’t believe a quarter of the year has already passed. Some of my goals are progressing nicely, others, well, not so good. Check it out.

New IKEA Finds

IKEA Greenhouse

On Saturday we took a little road trip to IKEA. I just love walking through the showroom. So many great ideas!

Here are a few of the goodies I picked up.

10 meal menu


About a month ago, I shared with you the fact that I’m not Superwoman and that I have a wonderful lady cook for us. I thought it might be fun to share what meals I order from her.

Yesterday, we got the car packed up with ingredients and dropped them off at her house.


Here’s what she’s making for us.

:: Meatloaf (x2)

:: Stuffed Shells

:: Chicken Pot Pie (x2)

My First Day in the Garden ~ Spring is here!


I was extremely excited that the first sunny and warm day of spring fell on a Friday and that I had nothing scheduled for the day. I’ve been waiting for this day all winter!

The kids did their instrument practicing and then we were out in the garden enjoying the beautiful sunshine. The kids were off playing in their make-believe world {which is quite entertaining} and I started cleaning up the back yard. After a […]

Family Easter Celebration


Spring break is over and it’s time to get crackin’ with all the spring cleaning. {More on that later on this week.} But before I get started, here’s a little peek at our Easter Sunday celebration.

The kids all dressed up and ready for church. Pretty smiles.


Laughing uncontrollably…this photo session is over.


We had some friends over in the afternoon for some coffee and cake. I made my Fancy […]
