A bit behind...

Hey everyone! Sorry I havn't posted anything for so long! Just wanted to check in and thank everyone that has been posting since I'm obviously behind on the blogging scene lately! Summer is always like this for me -- I never seem to have the time to keep up w/all my blogging and internet loves! So bare w/me and I hope those that can and have been posting can keep it up since I can't!

I am still cooking my dinner's every night which makes me so happy but I wish I could post them b/c they have all been turning out so well but w/our situation at the lake and lack of loading pic's onto my computer kind of prohibits that. I might try to at least post a recipe w/out a picture if it's too good not to share!

Thanks again and I hope to be able to post soon but probably not back to normal until Summer is over!

Make Dinner Easy

I have started using this website for help with my weekly meal planning. Once a week they send you an email with the weekly menu (5 recipes and sides) and grocery list. Super easy and free! I have been cutting and pasting some of the meals into my own menus since I don't want to try an entirely new recipe each night AND I don't do seafood. (I'm a little picky that way!)

Check it out and let me know what you think!

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust.
