Monthly Meal Planning

The last few months have been hard to meal plan for due to lots of travel for the Misters work. Its hard to cook for 1 and I tend to gravitate to frozen food, no bueno I know but it is what it is.

In addition to planning meals I am also looking to grocery shop more strategically. This month I went to Costco and bought chicken and ground turkey, which are our two main meats that we typically use. 4 packages of ground turkey for $17 and 6 2 packs of Chicken for $21

The hubs is back and will be here until the beginning of October when we both head out of town for work followed by a wedding, Anniversary get away and a trip to my parents to see a sisters whos coming to town. Here is whats on our menu starting with our dinner tonight

Egg Muffins

I'm a low maintenance breakfast kind of girl - if and when i eat breakfast its usually an uncooked pop tart in the car on the way to work. I spice it up with the occasional English muffin but that's the extent of it. My friend is my fitness inspiration for all things regarding health and working out. She posted a picture to instagram a week or so ago and it got me to thinking about expanding my breakfast options. She gave me the cooking instructions but the ingredients are all your own. Here is what I did

6 eggs
1/3 red pepper
1/3 green pepper
1/3 yellow pepper
salt pepper
shredded cheese

Bake at 350 degrees
20-25 Minutes

I plan to microwave there's and toast an English muffin - add a slice of cheese and there we have a 2 minute breakfast on mornings when you're running late.

Football Season Is Here

I've been a fan of  foot ball since I was an  wee youngin'. I had no older brother and my father was not much of a fan but somewhere along the way I fell in love with the sport.

The Hubs and I met four years ago, when my BFF and I hosted a party for the 1st game of the 2008 season, where my Cowboys defeated his Browns From then on we've made it a point to go to as many games as possible and host as many parties as possible. There's just something about a live game and when watching at home its so much more enjoyable to be surrounded by food, friends and beer!

Last week I hosted our 2012 Season Kick off party. Many thanks to Michael's for all my decor and pinterest for food ideas (go on over and check out my Football board for all the links to recipes.)

While I've been a Dalls Cowboys fan for as long as I can remember - this year I have pledged my allegance to the Celeveland Browns so we've become a Borwns Fan Famaily.

What sport brings your family and friends together? How do you celebrate?
