You’ve probably been wondering where I’ve been, haven’t you? It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted and for good reason. Back in the summer I welcome a little baby girl and so I’ve been busy with her. Life has been hectic and I don’t have as much free time as I used to. I haven’t had the chance to cook or bake as much. I’m back to work full-time and I never get a chance to actually sit down and relax until about 10:30/11pm when it’s about time to go to bed. But right now I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s so fun to watch my daughter get bigger and develop her personality.
I’ve always been really big on menu planning. I would create a menu for the week and figure out what ingredients we already have and what we need to get. Then I would plan a Peapod grocery order and it would get delivered right to my doorstep. I haven’t been grocery shopping in a real grocery store in quite some time. There are times when I have to run to the local market for a few things here and there, but we do the bulk of our grocery shopping online. I love it.
Have you heard about Home Chef? It’s a weekly meal delivery service – chef prepared recipes, fresh ingredients and step-by-step instructions delivered straight to your door. And I have to say I’m in love!! I don’t have as much time as I used to so this is a lifesaver. We chose the three meals per week for two weeks option. So I went online and selected three of the recipes that looked best and picked those. They arrived at my doorstep yesterday. All packaged up and ready for me to cook with.
I made the Rosemary-Cider Chicken with Roasted Apple & Butternut Squash. Now there is still a little bit of prep – like mincing up the shallots, cutting up the herbs and apples, etc. But everything is measured out for you in the amounts that you’ll need. And I love that this has me making things that I normally wouldn’t think to make. I usually don’t buy Butternut Squash. But it was really good.
Now I didn’t take fancy pictures, but I snapped a few with my phone so you could see what it looks like. Looks delicious, right?
