Now that life as taken on a whole new look for most of us, I thought I would share the daily schedule I have put together for my girls and I. The schedule incorporates two time slots for school work or anything that involves learning. Since the girls are going to be out of school for longer than expected, I wanted to add in more education work. That may include fun learning games, screen time for learning or other worksheets I print off.
I have also added some really helpful Educational cheat sheets Youtube channels, Netflix, Home school websites, and other learning websites. All of these were provided by a friend of mine from Instagram, Emily Barnes.
This is a screen shot that was sent to me! Hope you find this helpful navigating the crazy YouTube world!
I hope you find these helpful!! Good luck to all us these next few weeks!!
A friend of mine recently had heart surgery for the second time. She is required to hold her arm still and in a sling until things heal up. That is going to take a few weeks! Cooking is hard enough with two hands, let alone just one! I thought a good meal, already cooked was just what she and her husband need.
As a momma like many of you, I am short on time all the time. I wanted to make a good meal but make it fast. Her husband seems like a meat and potatoes guy like Grizzly, so I knew those had to be involved.
I decided on a Chicago seasoned roast, little ranch potatoes, and garlic & rosemary carrots.
These recipes I made up as I went so keep that in mind lol! I did write ingredients down as I cooked so I would not forget anything.
If you do not own an Instant Pot you need too, they are wonderful! ( I own an 8 quart, linked here) I was nervous to use mine at first because I had heard all kinds of horror stories about the lid popping off or people getting burned from the steam. I am pretty sure those happened because the owners did not read the directions or the manual. Y'all, read the instructions and you will be fine!
The roast took 55-60 minutes to cook. Most take all day in a crockpot but not with the instant pot. It was super easy and fast!
The roast is called Chicago seasoned because of the seasoning I rub on it. I buy it at Walmart and use it on chicken as well.
The seasoning is pictured below
Baked carrots for the win
I feel like you cannot serve a southern meal without carrots, right? These carrots take no time and taste amazing. When I bake them for my family I leave out the rosemary. My girls are not a fan of it, so I use garlic and salt only. The Parmesan cheese at the end really give it the best flavor. Cheese on anything is good!
Little Ranch Potatoes
These little potatoes are a big hit with my girls and Grizzly. They are small and perfectly portioned for a fork. The ranch flavor gives them such a good zest. They bake best in a 9X13 dish covered with foil.
Food was meant to nourish the body, not tear it down! Feed it right! Cooking at home usually means a healthier meal. Try these fast recipes and let me know what you think!
