✔️ Before you shop, double check your pantry and fridge so you don't buy anything you don't really need, plus it will help ensure you don't miss anything.
✔️ Clean your produce when you get home from the store. Prep ingredients like diced onions and chopped carrots ahead of time so you just need to grab a container when it's time to cook - it's like having a sous chef!
✔️ Keep your prepped foods fresh by using quality airtight containers - these are my favorite. Plus these are great for leftovers, too.

September 4 - Grilled Teriyaki Beef Kabobs
These Grilled Teriyaki Beef Kabobs with onions, and peppers have so much amazing flavor.
The whole family will love this delicious dish! I really love that it's pretty simple and it's impressive for company - kind of a no-brainer for Labor Day weekend in my book!
September 5 - Cowboy Baked Beans
September 6 - Taco Stuffed Peppers
Bored with your typical Taco Tuesday fare?
Try these taco stuffed bell peppers. Not only are the super easy (ready in 30 minutes!) but totally delish.
And, they're low carb, too.
September 7 - Sheet Pan Chicken and Potatoes
If you have never made spatchcock chicken, you have to give it a try!
This recipe uses rosemary and thyme with lemon, Dijon mustard, and onions to add tons of flavor to the chicken and potatoes.
Serve with buttery dinner rolls and a light green salad for a full meal.
You can also use sweet potatoes in this recipe if you prefer.
Be sure to save your leftover chicken to make dinner on Friday!
September 8 - Pulled Pork Sliders

September 10 -Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese
Let's use up the pulled pork leftovers from earlier in the week!
This recipe is one of my favorite restaurant-inspired meals. The combination of creamy mac and cheese and tangy pulled pork is cozy comfort food that makes me want to just crawl into bed and watch Schitt's Creek reruns (that's a good thing!)
Since pulled pork mac and cheese is a hearty dish, serve it with a light side salad and call it a day!
Breakfast - Raspberry Cream Cheese Muffins
I'm over-the-moon and totally in love with these Raspberry Cream Cheese Muffins.
It's a mixture of sweet and tart raspberry jam and tangy cream cheese - which is enough to make me swoon and then there's an amazing bakery-style crumb topping, too.
I swear, these muffins are like eating dessert for breakfast! My mouth is totally watering as I write this!
If you're not a fan of raspberries (or you want something a little less decadent), try one of our other muffin recipes:
Snacks - Chocolate Hummus
Chocolate Hummus is a great way to get some added nutrition into your kids.
I like to send it with my daughter in her lunch box with fresh fruit and graham crackers.
Check out our more traditional roasted garlic hummus recipe, too.
Dessert - Apple Spice Cake
Game Day Grub
Hooray! NFL season starts this week (Thursday the 8th with the Bills and Rams).
Honestly, I'm not really a huge sports fan, but I'm a really love munching on good game day food and hanging out with my friends and family. I might even make myself a pina colada smoothie and pretend I'm on vacation!
Are you more of an NFL or MLB fan? My sister is a die hard Red Sox fan, even though she hasn't lived in New England in over a decade!
Here are a few of our favorite snacks to make on game day:
- Cheesy Spinach Dip - with garlic roll dippers baked right with the dip.
- Sandwich Kabobs - these aren't just for kids, they're great party food, too!
- Crockpot Jelly Meatballs - super easy three ingredient appetizer.
- Pumpkin Spice Puff Pastry Twists - try one with a pumpkin ale and tell me what you think!
sure these are silly and just for fun, but it's a great way to help switch up your meals and snacks. Try something new!
