I made 2 different kinds of hummus last week. Classic and roasted red pepper hummus. Yum! I used Hummus Made Easy and it really is easy. And delicious!




I made the last package of Slow Cooker Butter Chicken that I had in the freezer. I need to make more to freeze and it’s really good. I use the recipe from


butter chicken


I also used the last package of Bacon Cheeseburger Nachos I had in the freezer. I was make your own nachos night. I set everything on the table and let them have at it. lol This recipe is also from MyFreezEasy and my family loves it.

I had some bananas ready to use for banana bread. I actually had enough to make 2 loaves of bread. My family loves banana bread. They would have eaten both loaves at once if I let them. I didn’t. Because banana bread is even better the next day. Have you ever tried toasting it? Slathered in butter, it’s amazing for breakfast!  I have 3 banana bread recipes.  Banana Bread, Cinnamon Apple Banana Bread, and Gluten Free Banana Bread.  Check them out!

Apparently, last week’s theme was use the last of everything in the freezer. lol I used the last Chicken Ranch Macaroni. This recipe is also from MyFreezEasy. It’s a family favorite. The next time I make it, I’m going to put more than 2 in the freezer. I’m also going to make some in smaller containers to freeze from lunches.

The weather turned cold here in Kentucky. Temps down in the mid 30’s, and frost a couple of mornings. It was definitely time to make some homemade hot chocolate mix! Yum! So nice on a cold morning!

I was very busy on Sunday afternoon making snacks for the week. 2 kinds of trail mix, one with raisins and one without. Homemade Chex Mix, and cheese cracker snack mix.

I also made a pan of no bake granola bars. I wrapped them individually in plastic wrap so everyone can grab one when they want it.
