What’s For Dinner?

I have been majorly struggling with cooking recently. I have NOT been struggling with baking…but, cooking well-balanced, healthy meals? Struggling.

I am meeting with Lere Robison at the end of the month, so I know I gotta get my snicker-oatmeal-chocolate chip-cookie-making-self back on the whole, healthy food bandwagon.

In attempts to do this…I am blogging my meal-planning so each night I can just click and cook…and it provides good accountability!

Side note–I saw this great idea on Better Homes & Gardens via Pinterest, just put all the ingredients for meals in small bins and you’re ready to go! Hello? Genius.

Sunday: Chili with Ground Turkey, Salad, Jim N’ Nicks Cheesy Biscuits (freeze leftovers)

Monday: Herb-Encrusted Chicken (use leftover chicken for Wednesday), Oven Roasted Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Tuesday: Pot Roast with Carrots, Potatoes, Mushrooms, Celery, Salad, Artisan Wheat Bread

Wednesday: Chicken Tortilla Soup,

Thursday: Grilled Trout, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Salad, Roasted Veggies

Friday: LAKE HOUSE W/GIRL FRIENDS!!! (Need to have some additional freezer meals for Joel)

If something sounds yummy, and you eat dinner around the blue-hairs time, you’re welcome to join us. :)

Also, HERE’S a weekly meal planner that is free to download!

My doctor’s visit went so well, thank you to those who prayed for me. Dr. Porter said my bone was growing back very nicely and would be 100% in 10 more months. Great progress. Hope you have a great week!!

Lick the Bowl

The prayer chain was a hit! Students are really believing God for great things. Please keep praying for us as we get this new semester rolling!

I wanted to share a fun summer recipe that is so tasty you will want to lick the bowl clean. I first tasted this when Susan brought it to a birthday party we had for some boys at church. Later that week, it was STILL on my mind, so my personal assistant, Google, found it for me!


  • 2 kiwis, peeled and diced
  • 2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
  • 8 ounces raspberries
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor
  • 10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • butter flavored cooking spray
  • 2 cups cinnamon sugar


  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, Golden Delicious apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle wedges with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Spray again with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture.
