Menu Plan Monday: week of September 29th

Happy Monday! This week is about a normal as they come. There’s nothing really on the agenda, apart from the regular work and school schedules. We have no elaborate weekend planned. Maybe I should be worried. It’s nice to get back into a routine. Fall is here and the weather is cooler. Last week’s meal plan went great. We tried a few new recipes from the 100 Days of Real … Continue Reading →


Rustic Italian chicken slow cooker recipe | One Mama's Daily Drama

Rustic Italian chicken recipe

I love using my slow cooker. I use it in the summer so I don’t heat up the house. I use it in the winter to make warm comfort foods. It is the perfect kitchen tool for a busy person who just doesn’t have time to spend an hour in the kitchen every day. That’s me, and I think it’s probably you too. My kitchen is pretty small, so real estate … Continue Reading →

Menu Plan Monday: week of September 22nd

Happy Monday! Here we are again, back at the beginning of the week and it’s time to make a menu plan. This week should be nice. Hubby is back to work today, the kids are recovered from their weird rash (which I discovered was hot tub folliculitis), and we even have some nice weather. After what seems like a long time of eating less-than-healthy convenience foods, I am back to … Continue Reading →


How to survive the witching hour | One Mama's Daily Drama

How to survive the witching hour

In spite of regular doses of drama and chaos, there are plenty of things in my home that are predictable. No matter what I do, they sneak in. Allergies when the weather changes. A growth spurt every time I buy a child some new pants. A giant zit when I’m planning to be in a photo. Every day, I pick my kids up from school at 3:00. Sometimes they are … Continue Reading →


From clutter to clean: Organize school papers on the refrigerator door with DIY name label magnets | One Mama's Daily Drama

Organize school papers on the refrigerator door

So we’re a few weeks into the school year. Is anyone else also buried under a pile of papers already?!? I’ve got papers to fill out and send back. I’ve got weekly homework that needs to not be lost. I’ve got amazingly beautiful artwork done by my eight and ten-year-old. I also have a refrigerator door that seems to be disappearing beneath the small forest that has been attached by … Continue Reading →


Menu Plan Monday: week of September 15th

Happy Monday! We are bopping along here. I’m at the point where the chaos is more funny than stressful. I don’t know if that means I’ve lost my mind, or I’m just dealing with it better. Last week when Hubby tried to go back to work, his doctor said no. Originally, the doc had said to just call for a note whenever he felt well enough. When he called, the doc … Continue Reading →
