The Simple Woman's Day Book: March 2016

 

 
 
For Today...Monday 3/28/16
 
 
Outside my window....today was gorgeous!
The temps got up to 70 - a true spring day!! :O)
 
 
I am thankful....for the little things!
 
 
I am wearing....jeans and my "Believe There Is Good In The World" tee

 
 
A favorite quote of the day....
 
Alisa Bobzien It's All Good Art Print #urbanoutfitters:
Nathan's motto to live by! :O) :O)
 
 
In the kitchen....after months of eating junky or barely cooking for myself while Peter is away at work, I took the plunge today and signed up for Blue Apron!!! Today's salmon Lean Cuisine was what drove me over the edge to do something about the way I am eating! It was the nastiest thing I ever ate! :O( I have read rave reviews about the meals from Blue Apron, and since I LOVE to cook, I think it is the answer to my dinner dilemma. My first shipment is scheduled to arrive next Tuesday! I signed up for the 2-person plan, but with Peter being gone, this will give me 6 meals. You can skip any week it doesn't work for you and you can cancel at anytime. I will do a full review once I try all the meals. I may or may not do it the weeks Peter is home, since I'm usually cooking for him, Nathan/and Kayla too.
 
 
From the board room (Pinterest)....I am giving Lindsey a baby shower on May 14th, so I am busy planning! I found some really cute baby girl ideas that I love! It will be very pink & very girlie!

One of my favorite things....I've probably watched it a 100 times, but when Julie & Julia comes on, I watch (even when I'm supposed to be Spring cleaning!). It's about three of my favorite things: Julia Child, cooking, and blogging! "O)

I signed up for Hello Fresh & Blue Apron! I used deals to get the first week cheap. I plan to get 1 delivery of each per month, roughly. So far the Hello Fresh meal options have looked better to me, but we shall see over time. I haven gotten 2 HF boxes and BA is coming in April. I can send you a link to try Hello Fresh for free if you want to try and compare. Just let me know!

Yes!! Please send the link! I had heard more about Blue Apron so I started with them. I am so excited to receive my first shipment on Tuesday. I got 2 free dinners (out of the six) in my first order. I think it is the perfect solution to my cooking for one problem! I have hardly cooked anything good for myself since Peter started his job in August. I love to cook, but haven't had the motivation. I can't wait! Thanks!!
