Back on Track

With all the fun of summer and I would say we had a pretty good summer this year. We kept very busy and the weather was awesome! I will admit I slacked on a lot of things - baking (it was just too hot to even think about baking!), keeping the house organized, meal planning (oops this I don't have an excuse for), and food related/personal posts on the blog.

With fall creeping in on us, brrr yesterday was cold, I will be getting back to routines. I spent a good chunk of yesterday cleaning and organizing our livingroom with the kids. It looks 10 times better for sure! We now have a HUGE box full of toys to sort and sell/donate. Next up is the dinning/craft room. I am trying to work room by room purging things we don't need anymore and really down sizing our things. I have a friend who uses the word minimalist, I think this is where we would like to be. If we can it will be a lot easier when we go to move.

I really need to keep on my daughter for putting away her toys when she is done playing or moving on to the next thing. Also she has been horrible with paper, leaving her crafting everywhere! You should have seen the big huge bag of recycling that I have from her drawings.

On the blog I would love to get back to posting my meal plans for the week. I am thinking instead of Monday's, I will post it on Friday as we do our shopping over the weekends and the sales usually start Friday here in Ontario.

During the summer my food blog - Marvelous Mommy Meals was merged into Genuine Jenn. You can get to all food related posts including past meal plans by clicking on the tab at the top - Marvelous Mommy Meals. I would like to get back to posting 1 or 2 food related posts a week, including cookbook reviews.

Don't forget to enter the Old El Paso dinner kit giveaway! It is open to Canadians and ends on September 18th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST.

What would you like to see food related? I am working on a post about where we like to get quick and easy recipes. I will also be trying out some fall baking/cooking as the weather gets cooler. I am looking for new slow cooker recipes and maybe even find a favorite new cookbook for the fall.

Happy Sunday!
