  1. Your menu looks lovely and so well thought out:) I need to work on mine today. Thank you for such great ideas.


  2. I really enjoy your blog. There's a few recipes here that might appeal to my very picky husband. By "Frozen Tundra" I assume you mean Canada? I live just south of Green Bay WI which is the Packers "Official Frozen Tundra". lol

  3. Kudos to you for planning 3 meals a day all week!! I've just been trying to start planning our lunches so we aren't doing PB&J every day, ha ha!!

  4. I've been wanting to make homemade granola for a while. Your recipe looks so simple! Adding this to my "to-do" list this week.

  5. Zucchini is so good! Are you gonna try using panko? Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  6. That all just looks amazing! :) Erin

    Love your blog and following!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
