Food Prep Sunday!!!

We had such a fabulous family weekend.  I was in Colorado last weekend for 5 days with my girlfriends so it was a welcome treat to be able to spend the entire weekend as a family.  We took advantage of the sunshine! We went to the park, sidewalk chalked the driveway, carved pumpkins, roasted seeds and watched a lot of sports in the process!! (Lions, Tigers, Spartans, oh my!)

Since I was out of town last weekend, this past week was tough in the food department.  I got back on Tuesday evening and did a quick grocery run on Wednesday. We made do with what we had but I had been looking forward to restocking our fridge with some healthy, prepped food.  Today's prep was a success.  I have a stocked fridge and I'm excited about what's in it! 

I chopped lots of fruits and veggies (pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, cucumbers, celery, onions, green peppers, carrots). Then I prepped Beef Barley Soup, a delicious spinach & feta frittata, Turkey Sloppy Joes, Aunt Tilda's Brown Bread and a dozen hardboiled eggs. I will be sharing the recipes on the blog tomorrow, so stay tuned! Is there on you'd like me to share FIRST?? Post it in the comments and I'll have it up right away!

The picture above is a little collage of a recipe box that my sister gave to me when I got married 8 years ago.  It's very special to me because it has recipes handwritten by my late Mother as well as my 94 year old Nana.  These are our family recipes and it's such a special part of my kitchen! I find a lot of inspiration online, but this box is full of all of those things I grew up on like Nana's Veggie Beef Barley Soup or Aunt Tilda's Brown Bread.  It's full of goodness! 

Have a great week and if there's a recipe you'd like me to share first thing tomorrow, comment here!
