This week on Fee SIMPLE Fridays: an easy recipe that you can actually manage to handle any night during the week (but especially on Fridays when you are exhausted after a long week!) Bonus: It’s a pasta that fills you up but doesn’t make you feel like you weigh 1000 lbs afterwards. LOVE.this. Continue reading
So this recipe is basically my go-to once a week type pasta. It is seriously the easiest thing to make in the world, and usually I have all the ingredients on hand. This recipe hits all my sweet spots: easy, fast, cheap, and darn-delicious! I could honestly eat it every single day and be happy. Continue reading
Tonight’s dinner was finally worth posting… I’ve had a lot of things going on in my life (mostly good!) and have basically neglected the crap out of this blog (per usual since I started working), so I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just going to cut to the chase and give you the recipe :) This came about because I had some stuff in my fridge that I had purchased with the intent of making other things and then had extra and/or never made those things (oops). Here’s what I had, and what you would need, to replicate this insanely easy dish: Continue reading
Oh em gee, y’all. Cover your ears real quick because I’m about to toot my own horn (I know I’m ridiculously cheesy and lame but I can’t help myself). I made a homerun tonight. Matt loved it. I mean LOVED. Muggsy went totally crazy over not being able to have it (sorry muggs it has onions). And I had to keep myself from going back for more, but packed some up to bring to work for lunch tomorrow. It also had the added benefit of taking 30 minutes (and like 5 minutes hands-on time, which is usually all I take into consideration when I think about how long something is going to take). Like it will literally take me longer to write this post than to make this meal. It ALSO cost me like $3 per serving (maybe) thanks to my couponing (I’ll get into that later) Continue reading
Hey guys! Again please forgive my absence! A lot has happened in the last few weeks! I signed up for a freaking FULL marathon. Like a crazy person. I’m still trying to watch what I eat and come up with healthier things to eat. This is certainly a good one and I’ll be using it again. My favorite part is that it’s a one-pan wonder (except for the pot you have to use for cooking the pasta…but the rest can all be done in a single frying pan). Read on for the Verdict to see more about how much I liked this recipe, and how my co-workers liked it as well! Continue reading
Hey guys! Quick post this evening… Today was a lonnngggg day. To tell you the truth, I felt like I was in 50 places at once today, so by the time 5 o’clockcame around, I wasn’t feeling much up to making dinner. But, like a good housewife (yeah right lol), I texted Matt to see what he wanted for dinner. To my pleasant surprise, he texted back that he was already making spaghetti and had made enough for me as well… what a keeper! Continue reading
So it’s the day after Christmas! Actually it’s almost the day after the day after Christmas because it’s almost 11 on December 26th so I’m getting dangerously close to missing the “Christmas post” window… or maybe I already have…who know’s I’m new to the blogosphere. Anyway, I had a really wonderful Christmas and I hope that you all did as well (or a happy hanukkah or whatever your celebration of choice may be!) I truly hope it was a happy one filled with laughter and family.
