Dinner time, the most hated time of day for me. I never seem to know what to make. I need something that will appeal to five different people. The Picky Eater (my 7 yr old), The Pseudo-Vegetarian (my 12 yr old), The Allergic-to-Everything (my 3 yr old) and then my husband and I. I’ve tried the meal prep places like Dream Dinners and they were great for a while, but the hubby thought they were too bland and I couldn’t find time to go down to the store for 3 hours to prep. I also tried recipe apps for my phone and that was okay, but not enough variety. What was I to do?
Nowadays I surf Pinterest for great food ideas and also FoodNetwork.com. Over time I’ve found blogs that have great ideas and suggestions and I often poll our forums “What’s for Dinner?” Click through to find 5 tips/tricks I’ve found to help alleviate the stress of meal planning.
Some kids collect baseball cards, my kid collects toothbrushes.

Are you a mom in Colorado who wants to connect with other moms? Want to share recipes, get advice, meet up for playdates?
Our forums are growing and we’d love you to be a part of that! We have comfy vibe, it’s as if you are sitting around a coffee shop, chatting with your closest friends.
Other boards can be large and overwhelming and get on some pretty debatable topics. While we love a good debate, our forums stand out because we respect everyone’s opinion. Whether you vax, delay vax, anti-vax, circ or anti-circ, cloth v. disposable diapers, love Coke over Pepsi, we truly care about everyone and won’t belittle or bash your opinions. We generally stay away from those hot topics (mostly because we all know Coke is better than Pepsi by now 😉 )
Come on over to the forums and join in the fun! We have some fun challenges like our “15 minute clean up” game and our healthy honeys forums where we can share ideas on how to get fit. We have a crafty forum where we share ideas and how-to’s and much much more.
Don’t be shy! Join today!
I love the site Mirror.me. It makes a cool infographic image of the things you tweet the most about. I think this is a really great way to see what I’m all about.
Maybe letting him watch Zombieland with me wasn’t such a good idea.
Wow, this week has been a whirlwind! Really the past 2 months have been just amazing with all of the opportunities I’ve been able to be a part of. To think, it all started with a group of women creating a forum to chat with other moms.
A picture so cute I had to share it again.
So, if you read the blog you probably know I’m a bit of a smart-ass. A friend reminded me of these great videos you can send your kids where Santa knows their name, has a picture of them, knows what they want for Christmas and all that. Portable North Pole, or PNP, as it’s called, […]
So you might remember me saying before about how I am trying this whole Elf on the Shelf thing. (Elf on the Shelf and other crap I do to make my kids behave) That reminds me, I gotta go move the damn thing again… be right back. Okay, phew, the creepy thing has been successfully […]
From my YesVideo DVD! You can see a picture of the Garden of the Gods from a couple months ago in a previous WW here on our site.
Cheating and using words again! A blast from the past, back to Brady (AKA Chewy) and his first Christmas. This picture makes me smile!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the displays at Target and Barnes & Noble, or seen the various facebook updates from your overachieving friends… “Look where Elfie hid today! Johnny is going to be tickled when he finds him!” and “When Suzie was acting up, I simply pointed to our Elf and whispered ‘we should be good for […]
One of the things that I am trying to do is find creative fun ways to reuse or “upcycle” things around my home. I hate to throw things away and I would rather find a creative way to reuse something or make it into something brand new. So today I decided I was going to […]
Yikes! Did you know that it’s only 41 days until Christmas? If you are like me, you try to wait until the day AFTER Thanksgiving to shop and decorate, but the fact is, there are often great deals and sales BEFORE Thanksgiving these days. I’ve been traveling all year to various conferences and toy showcases […]
Made in Colorado 2011 Holiday Gift Guide This year I thought it would be great to feature some local businesses in a gift guide. I, for one, love to support local business, especially ones started by moms. Whether it’s selling crafty items on etsy or owning a wine bar (um, hello! Wine!), Moms are […]
My first post about California Wine’s wine of the month club told you all about life as a mom and how a glass of wine can relax me at the end of the day. Well, they just sent me another couple of bottles and this was perfect for entertaining! My friends often times like to […]
I’ve been following, donating and trying to help the Love Drop Team for almost a year now. They have helped Autistic kids get therapy dogs, helped countless people down on their luck and now headed to Colorado to help a Fort Collins woman who is fighting her third bout of cancer. My own mother has […]
