A few weeks back I posted about my back to school resolution and how it has become a challenge in the middle of my ever growing schedule to find time to make supper each night. I’ve employed some creative solutions such as cooking up meals ahead of time, freezing, and using my slow cooker more. I’ve even tried ~takes a breath~ planning. I hate that part of it. I’m really a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants gal when it comes to supper. I like to just wait and see what I’m in the mood for when it comes time to cook. I also don’t enjoy cooking ahead as that takes the fun out of getting to cook each night for me, but I’m working on developing new habits in order to be able to adjust to a more demanding work schedule and still keep family the top priority – and it’s working.

Today, I’d like for you to tell me how your back to school resolutions are going and we have a special treat for those who leave a comment!

  1. I just found your msite and love it!! I’m southern and some of your receipes have brought back so many happy memories. Thank you for all the work you put into this for us.

  2. Christy,
    I so enjoy you on QVC and reading your web page. I am widowed, retired and then went back to work a year ago. I am so busy I don’t always take time to cook except on Sundays. I am determined to get more exercise and eat healthy nutritious meals. Therefore I make and freeze a dinner, use the crock pot, cook in the broiler, and make salads that last a few days such as broccoli/cauliflower, 7 layer salad, pasta salad. I can always microwave frozen veggies. I would love a Nook to download new recipes and apps.
    thank you, Marian
