Hey yall….how was your weekend? A wonderful filled weekend of nothing here:) We played puppy games and took lots of walks….great weekend all around. Both our kids are off and driving now…and they are loving their new freedom. I could get very use to eliminating my runs to the grocery store:)

Now that school is back in and we are settling into fall….the rountine of meal planning is back in action. I have talked about how we do things here a few times in the past. I like to allow everyone one dinner pick per week. I makes my grocery list based on those picks. I like to get this done on Sunday so that on Monday I can get in and out of the grocery store. Multiple trips to the store are annoying to me…

I wanted to share a yummy new recipe I made last week. The quick and easy chicken teriyaki was a real crowd pleaser. I adapted this recipe with a few substitutions and it worked great.

Took about 25 minutes or so….I just steamed some brocolli in the microwave and served it with rice. I love this steamer….makes fresh veggies and rice very easy!
