Favorite Family Dinners: One Pot Wonders

The following “Favorite Family Dinners: One Pot Wonders” post is sponsored by Foodie.com.

I really cannot move on to any other topics before I share what might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I realize that I might be partial since it’s my child, but is this not the best school picture you’ve ever seen? I’m pretty sure (fine, absolutely sure) that all of mine were terrible.

Anyway, while we’re on the topic of school, I just wanted to remind you all again that it’s coming up so freaking soon. I mean, I blinked and summer was over. The hardest part about going back to work each school year, in my opinion, is trying to keep on top of things at home. Between yard work and household chores, we get off track pretty easily around here. Add in meal planning and dinner making, and you’ve lost me completely. Plus, I just hate washing dishes.

Luckily, quick meals with few pots to wash do exist. And they are lifesaving, y’all. I compiled a list of meals I love and meals I want to try soon in the hopes that I will remember to use them on busy nights. Hope you find something you can use, too!

I really, really want to try the broccoli quinoa casserole first. Might need to add that one to next week’s rotation if I get around to meal planning before then. See? I’m already screwing up and I haven’t even gone back to work. Ridiculous. What makes it even worse is that I’ve been sitting around for four hours staring at a blank screen and waiting on a DIRECTV installation appointment.


They never showed, so I twiddled my thumbs all morning for nothing. Totally should have been working on something, huh? I better go get M from school now, because they said they’ll be here this afternoon. I didn’t really miss having TV for the past three years, but I’m still a little excited about getting it back. Ryne decided that we couldn’t survive another season without college football, but I’m sure I’ll also find a ton of other stuff to mindlessly watch. I better clear my schedule for the next month or so, which I guess means I’ll certainly be needing some quick meals after all. I mean, TELEVISION. I don’t even know what to do about it.

Cleaning Frenzy + Medicine Ball Tabata

With the school year rapidly approaching (seriously, how?!), I’m trying to get as much done as possible with my last few days of free time. Today that meant cleaning the entire downstairs. I even tackled the pantry and fridge, so you know it was serious. On a related note, anyone have some good links to […]


F.A.S.T. Virtual 10k + NASM News

Happy Tuesday! I’m in an exceptionally good mood this afternoon because I’m feeling pretty productive. I feel like I’m just checking things off my to do lists like a champ. Except for cleaning the house. I’ll get to that sometime this year. Yesterday I ran farther than I have in a while, despite the heat […]


Taking Breaks

Well, that was nice. I pretty much took a break from the internet for a few days and I’m feeling pretty fresh if I do say so myself. I think I needed to step back for a little bit, because I have a habit of forgetting that blogging is just a hobby for me. Reality […]


#PropelFit Hydration Challenge

This post is sponsored by FitFluential on Behalf of Propel. I was compensated and all opinions are my own. I can’t even believe how late I’m posting today. Can’t sleep. I had what might have been a total sugar bomb for dessert, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be crashing momentarily. Anyway, tonight we’re talking hydration. […]
