Do you struggle to find the time or make the time to make meals from scratch? Do you need some inspiration to cook and eat at home instead of running through the drive-thru or getting takeout?
Next week, I’ll be doing another fun Eat at Home Challenge all week long, in partnership with the Eat at Home Menu Planning service. I did this back in April and it was such a hit that I’m bringing it back for a week!
I know that many of you are in the middle of getting back to school schedules or are gearing up for back to school and I thought this would be the perfect time to do this challenge to inspire you with simple and easy meals that you can make in the morning before your kids head out the door to school and then you won’t have to think about dinner the rest of the day!
How This Challenge Will Work
The challenge will run August 14-18, 2017 and I’ll be using the Slow Cooker Menu Plan from Eat at Home (stay tuned for a special discount code that will just be valid for a few days!)
Every morning around 7 a.m. CT, I’ll be on Facebook Live prepping our dinner to throw in the slow cooker for the day so that when 6 p.m. rolls around dinner is READY!
(Yes, 7 a.m. is early, I know. But I leave every morning at around 7:40 a.m. to drop Kathrynne and Silas off at school and then I start work at 8 a.m., so this is when it works for me. And I thought you might find it helpful to see me fitting this into my real life, though I can’t promise that our kitchen will be perfectly quiet or clean at 7 a.m. on a school morning! It might be quite a bit of real-life, but we’ll see how it goes!)
Every day, in addition to doing a Facebook Live video on my Facebook Page, I’ll be posting here on the blog what I made that day, along with a link to my video (in case you missed it).
My hope is that this will inspire you with some new recipe ideas, encourage you to not wait until the last minute to think about what you’re having for dinner, and motivate you to eat at home more (even on busy nights!) so you can save money.
(You can see all the recipes I made in the last Eat at Home Challenge here. Plus, there are links to all my live Facebook videos there, too.)
