Good afternoon everyone!

It’s been another productive Sunday over here so far :)

  • Grocery shopping: done
  • Pre-make dinner for a couple nights this week: complete
  • Prep for baking project this week: finished
  • Make dessert for family lunch: check
  • Eat said family lunch: donzo


I have a really busy couple of days coming up, so I got up early and spent a few hours pre-making some dinners that I’ll be able to re-heat and eat this week! A few hours spent in the kitchen on Sunday is time well spent if it means dinner will be pretty much ready for us on a busy weeknight. Plus, I love a good Sunday in the kitchen…it’s relaxing and cozy. :D

In addition to pre-making a couple of dinners, I made an ooey-gooey, warm and chewy Apple Crisp to take over to my parent’s house for lunch! Pre-bake:




I followed my tried and true Apple Crisp recipe – works every time :) 


Lunch over at my folks’ was Steak, Fresh Bread and Almond Green Beans.


These were fresh green beans that my Mom combined with some toasted almonds. All she did was spray a small baking sheet with olive-oil spray, spread out the almonds, spray again and then toast in a toaster oven until they were golden brown. THEY WERE AMAZING and kind of reminded me of toasted pumpkin seeds!


Paired with some smoky steak and soft, fresh bread – this was a fabulous Sunday lunch!


But what’s Sunday lunch without dessert? The apple crisp was super soft with a chewy, crunchy topping. I like to double the “crisp” on top…muwahahaha!


Guess who else was there?! FINN! My favorite (and only!) nephew whose little faces and baby squeaks just melt my heart!! Look at his little man jeans! I just love him so much :)


Okie doke! I’m off to relaaaaaax, maybe watch some football – and snuggle under my pink Slanket because it’s friggin’ freezing in here!


Which weekend day to you typically try and relax a little?

I find that Saturday nights are the best time to kick back and unwind. Getting into some comfy clothes and throwing in a movie is pretty much my idea of Heaven!
