Menu Planning Challenge accepted!
It is time to give some long overdue attention to my little blog. I have been cooking up a storm in my kitchen but not taking the time to document any of it. I am sure many others in the blogging world can relate!
My friend Laura at mommyrunfast.com has teamed up with her friend Jill to organize a menu planning challenge for the month of October. This inspired me to re-commit to my blog and try to change up my weekly meals. I am going to try two new recipes this week!

Here is my plan for the week. I hope I can stick to it!
Sunday: Dinner at a friend's house
Monday: Chicken, basil pasta with a side of garlic broccolini
Tuesday: Herb-crusted pork chops (new recipe!), rice and peas
Wednesday: Spaghetti bolognese with green beans
Friday: Santa Fe crockpot chicken (new recipe!)
Saturday: Roast pork tenderloin, roast potatoes and green beans
While this is a blog about cooking for my family, I would like to add that we joined our local YMCA this week. I have spent the last nine months trying to prepare more health-conscious meals so it only makes sense that the next step would be to try and be healthier outside of the kitchen! I really love the feeling of community at the Y and appreciate that our daughter can also be included on our quest to become healthier.
