Homemade Applesauce

I really enjoyed making and eating this applesauce. I could have made it more commercial by putting it in a blender after, but I don’t mind the chunkiness. It gives it a more homemade feel. I ate this mostly as Dean wasn’t fond that it didn’t come in an applesauce container. lol. I need to keep that and a pudding cup and make my own. This way, they are still in the containers that he recognizes and are used to. I love sharing these recipes with all of you and I hope that you share any pictures if you decide to make any of the ones that I post. Happy baking!

Misfit Market 3rd Delivery

We are still loving this subscription box. I think this week is my favorite so far, because we will basically use up everything. The only thing I am questioning is the cabbage, which I will most likely give to my mom. I am not a big cabbage person. I don’t really like it all that much. I am for sure happy about everything else we received in this week’s box. I actually need to use up last week’s apples, so I am going to make an apple and pear apple crisp with oats from oatmeal that none of us has been eating. It will make the perfect topping for the baked apples and pears. I have a severe sweet tooth from that “time”, so I have been baking more recently. I just made squash bread that tastes like pumpkin bread. It is super good and nutritious. I am happy to get more veggies into Dean’s diet for sure!

20190430_150941.jpg

2 Collard Green Bunches

This is the cabbage that I am taking about. This will probably get given to my mom, because I hate wasting food.

20190430_151208.jpg

2 Pints of Cherry Tomatoes

This will be eaten and used up for sure. They go great in salads and on the side of many dishes. I am making American Chop Suey tonight and will add a few on these chopped up into it. It will add much needed color and veggies to the meal. Two pints will go fast. I had already bought a pint for the potato salad. I am thinking about making a roast of potatoes and sweet potatoes. These would go great with that being baked in the oven.

20190430_151706.jpg

2 Bunches of Rainbow Carrots

I am going to be making some glazed carrots, methinks. I really love glazed carrots, but have never tried doing it myself. I also might make a ham soup with carrots and potatoes. I have a ton of carrots though that need to be eaten, so I will be looking at lots of carrot recipes.

20190430_151316.jpg

2 Bunches of Broccoli

I have meal prepped last week’s broccoli and I am thinking of steaming them with a garlic and lime sauce. It sounds yummy. We really love broccoli over here, so I am happy to have more. I also eat broccoli raw with some veggie dip or ranch dressing. It is the best! Veggies also generally speaking keep me fuller longer when I have them as snacks.

20190430_151522.jpg

2 Cucumbers

We have already eaten one of these in a salad. The other one will be gone soon enough. I am looking up a cucumber recipe to do something different with it. I stumbled upon fried cucumber slices. Kinda like fried pickles. I think I will try this because it sounds amazing.

20190430_151854.jpg

9 Yellow Carrots

Like I said, we have a ton of carrots to eat through. I might wash and peel some for snacking, but I still need to put some into a few recipes. I love carrots personally, so I am sure that it won’t be a chore to eat them up and find things to make it with.

20190430_152226.jpg

3 Delicata Squash

Squash bread was a huge hit this week. I plan on making it the same and making a squash “pumpkin” pie. Martin isn’t a huge fan of squash, so I have to find ways to disguise it as other things. It’s fun finding new recipes and making different dishes almost everyday.

20190430_152840.jpg

16 Small Potatoes

I believe these might be baking potatoes or specifically made to have with a roast. I am thinking about making roasted potatoes with these. Also, I could make my homemade fried potatoes as well. I have enough to make a few options for sure!

20190430_153007.jpg

8 Pears

We have already eaten a few pears as well. I plan on making a pear and apple crisp like dessert.

20190430_152022.jpg

2 Heads of Lettuce

We already ate this. These were small and each head made 1 salad.

20190430_152347.jpg

11 Oranges

I believe that 3 have already been eaten. These will go quickly since Dean loves oranges. He has one a day as a snack.

Dean is going to daycare starting June 3rd. I think I am going to cancel the box now, even though I love it. I want to see if we spend more on fruits and veggies or less from the cost of this box. It is a neat little experiment. If we end up spending less, then we won’t be buying this again. If we end up spending more, then I would go back to the box. It was nice to try and get a feel for it. I think we might actually spend less though. With meal planning our veggies and fruits, I think we will spend less than $38 a week on veggies alone. This will free up some money for Dean’s daycare since 1 day is $38. Skipping this will pay for 1 week of daycare for Dean.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

20190424_200512.jpg

This was super delicious and easy to make. I had all of the ingredients easily on hand. This recipe also only took like 5 minutes to make for four servings (It filled out two 15 oz mugs pretty well, but I do like my smoothies thick). This is a delicious filling snack or as a breakfast replacement. It has a good amount of protein and fat to energize your brain. The recipe calls for honey, but I didn’t have any on hand. My smoothie still came out fantastic without it and I added in vanilla yogurt for some extra thickness.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas, broken into chunks
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey, or to taste
  • 2 cups ice cubes

Directions:

Place bananas, milk, peanut butter, honey, and ice cubes in a blender; blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Well, there you have it! A simple, but delicious smoothie recipe. Simple altercations and you could have a ton of variations of this like adding berries to it or agave syrup instead.

With Love,

Selena

Walmart Haul Using The Grocery App

Okay, so this was so easy to use and I will continue to buy my items from Walmart this way for as long as I can. They don’t have everything in the store available for purchase to bring out to your car, but it is close enough to wear having to actually go inside should be rare. I bought snacks, baking/cooking ingredients, and a ton of household stuff. The app was super easy to use to order, then I just let them know that I’m on my way, and pick up my order. Easy peasy. I actually had Martin pick it up for me. I 100% recommend this app if you hate going into the store to shop. I have used this app multiple times and I am still in love with it. Unless I need something that isn’t on the app (like grip socks for Dean), I don’t go in the store anymore. It is really great for budgeting and staying within how much you want to spend that week. I always have my shopping list on my phone, when I am doing my groceries on the computer. I will make a set amount that I want to spend on household things and then up to how much I want to spend on groceries.

I have been slowly stocking up our pantry with spices, baking supplies, and things you don’t use very often but is nice to have on hand. It’ll be a few months, I think before our pantry is a pretty good size with many options to make different kinds of foods. Also, Dean is going to be going to daycare and I’m on the wait list for discounted child care for 8 to 10 months. So, I am looking at $100 or less a week for 2 full days of childcare for Dean. That will also slow down our pantry shopping as well. I am also building a reserve for backup money (School loan money (extra) and my company’s reimbursement for classes), so if Dean’s daycare becomes a financial strain some weeks, there is still a reserve of money to buy groceries. Since, we are looking at a maximum of $400-500 a month on childcare.

I don’t use the app to order the groceries. I just use the app to “check in” that I am on my way to pick up the order, which Martin usually does on his way home every Sunday. I highly recommend trying this app out or even logging into the computer to make an order (like I usually do). Like I said, I stay within budget now and get everything that I want every week without breaking the bank. Do some things have to be prioritized? Yes, but this makes that way easier than getting to the checkout line and seeing how far over your budget you went… I love that I don’t do that anymore.

Garlic Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Root Veggies

Okay, so I will be posting these recipes on my blog. I will be taking pictures of our plated meal and giving a review on each meal. I will be reviewing making the meal as well as consuming it. I am really excited to start making these meals. I thought that sharing the recipe would be nice if it is any good and so anyone could make these meals at home with their own ingredients.

COOK THIS RECIPE IN 6 SIMPLE STEPS

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Peel carrots, then cut into ¾-inch pieces on a diagonal. Medium dice sweet potato and Yukon Gold potatoes into ½-inch cubes. Leaving remaining sprigs whole, strip half the rosemary leaves from stems; finely chop leaves until you have 1 ½ tsp (3 tsp for 4p).

  2. Step 2

    Toss together carrots, sweet potato, Yukon Gold potatoes, 1 tsp chopped rosemary (2 tsp for 4p), a large drizzle of oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper on a baking sheet. Roast until slightly softened, about 15 minutes (we’ll add the onion then).

  3. Step 3

    While veggies roast, halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Finely chop a few of the slices until you have ¼ cup (½ cup for 4p). Peel and finely chop garlic.

  4. Step 4

    Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle all over with 1 TBSP flour (2 TBSP for 4p). Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over mediumhigh heat. Add seasoned chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Turn off heat. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  5. Step 5

    In a small bowl, combine sliced onion, a drizzle of oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Once veggies have roasted for 15 minutes, remove from oven. Top with seasoned onion, then return to oven until everything is browned and tender, about 12 minutes more.

  6. Step 6

Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used to cook chicken over medium-high heat. Add garlic, chopped onion, remaining chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add stock concentrate and ¼ cup water (⅓ cup for 4p). Simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Turn off heat; swirl in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4p). Thinly slice chicken. Divide sliced chicken and roasted veggies between plates. Top chicken with pan sauce.

The Review:

This meal was very easy to make and it was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the rosemary chicken and all the root veggies! I couldn’t finish my plate and I had a little bit leftover for a good snack before lunch. I realize with making these meals that these are recipes you can easily make at home and buy your own supplies for cheaper. Its nice every once in a while or if they are having a good promotion. I am on the second delivery (and my last) and having this delivery service isn’t the right fit for us. It is a fun service to try out though.

Our Review:

I like the cute recipe cards. If we like the recipe enough, I will keep the card to make it again. Otherwise, I will find a new home for the card. My mom says she likes making new recipes, so I might given them to her to try. I’m disappointed that the ingredients were just tossed in and my bread was broken. I didn’t like that at all and I hope the next box improves upon the presentation and placement of delicate pieces like bread. However, the meal itself was delicious. You can’t really mess up soup and a grilled cheese though. Martin has said that every meal that I’ve made has been delicious. He cannot believe that I never really cooked before. I have finished making all three recipes and my only critique is that it takes longer to make everything than what they state. Could just be my crappy oven though.

I really love sharing recipes, pictures, and my opinion on the food. I will be continuing to share with these kinds of posts. I hope you enjoy them. I have been getting most of my recipes from an amazing app that Dean’s ABA therapist turned me onto, because she enjoys cooking as well. I will be sharing my thoughts on that once I have used it more as well.

EveryPlate 1st Delivery

I really want to get serious about learning how to cook and making/eating healthier meals for my family. It just hit me that’s what I have now. I have a little family. There was a discount for this delivery service and it was the cheapest. I thought that I would try this one first and maybe try a few others to see if it is worth it or not for our family. I got a sale price of $19.94 a week for the first three weeks. I also upgraded one recipe this week, so I paid an extra $5.98 ($2.99 per serving for 2 people). I paid $26 for the first week of three different recipes for 2 people. The normal price is $29.94 and $8.99 shipping, so that is a total price of $39 roughly, not including the up-charge if you chose any premium meals. It is a really great regular price, since most of the other services are $40 on discount. You get to pick your three meals for every week and I already have my 3 weeks planned out. I actually can see the 4th regular price recipes and I decided to skip it. Everything is really high in carbs and we are trying to be low carb and zero bread/pasta. This is just as well for me, because I can chose a different service to try out for that week.

I will tell you what I got this week and show you the unboxing for each recipe. I will also include pictures of steps/completed plated meals in a separate post, one for each meal as this post will be long as is. If I can take any video, I will do that for sure like plating the meal. I doubt that I can tape the whole video of making the recipe on my phone. My camera is kinda crappy quality as well. I will need to invest if the recipe thing becomes a big part of the blog. The separate recipe posts will have more information on the recipe and how easy I thought it was to cook. It will also include our thoughts on how good the meal itself tasted. You can look forward to hearing Martin’s thoughts as well!

So, I decided to go with these three recipes this week: Garlic Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Root Veggies, Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup with Pepper Jack Grilled Cheese, and Balsamic Steak with Bruschetta Toasts and Roasted Zucchini (Premium Meal). The other recipes that they had to choose from were BBQ Pork Sloppy Joes with Pickled Onion and Sweet Potato Wedges (The carbs were over 100 on this one, so it was a big no no), Beef Stroganoff Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy and Garlic Mashed Potatoes (I kinda hate stroganoff, so I decided against this), Blackened Chicken Penne with Cheesy Pepper Jack Sauce (This one was again high in carbs at 77 grams). You only get 6 recipes to choose from every week, but at the normal price, that seems very reasonable.

The website states that this meal takes 45 minutes to make. The carbs is a bit high, but that is from the potatoes in this recipe making it an acceptable amount of starchy carbs. It is high in protein and fat, which is what we want for the keto diet. To make these recipes, you will need basic ingredients from your kitchen like salt, pepper, flour, etc. There is only 6 steps to make this recipe, so it seems fairly simple. I will probably make this one first for us to be honest. It is the most appealing recipe to me out of what I chose that I want to try first.

The carbs are a little high for this one with the bread for the grilled cheese, but we both thought that it was worth it for such a home cook staple. This recipe states that it takes 40 minutes to make. Again, they break the recipe down to six simple steps, which I very much appreciate. This recipe would have been useful when Martin was sick to have on hand. lol. I love vegetarian recipes, so it is nice that this one contains no meat. Again, this one is very high in fat with a good amount of protein and this is exactly what we want for the diet that we are going on. You will hear me mention this over and over again, because I want to be crystal clear that I am aware of the fat content. I don’t need any comments about how this is unhealthy without solid facts to back up your claims.

This is our premium meal that I paid an extra $6 for, because it sounded so good and fits our diet to a T. It takes 40 minutes to make and the picture looks absolutely mouth watering. You get the 6 steps again and I will be cooking my meat a bit more than recommended. I don’t like any blood in my meat, so I will watch it carefully until I think it is browned enough. I will also be trimming the fat personally off of my meat, which may take down some of the fat percentage on this meal. I cannot stand the texture of fat though, so I will happily trim it before slicing.

I am looking forward to cooking these meals this week and possibly the beginning of next week as well if I don’t have the time/energy to cook these ones by Sunday. I receive my shipment every Wednesday, so that only gives me 4 days (Wed, Thurs, Fri) to cook these dinners for us. I work 6 to 6 on the weekends, so the last thing I will probably want to do is cook one of these 40 to 45 minute meals. I will probably prepare something on Sunday to feed us for the next two days or choose simple easy recipes that are quick for those days.

First IMPRESSIONS:

Things were just thrown together except for the meat, which was on the bottom sandwiched between 2 ice packs that I am keeping to put in our cooler for a trip to the beach/ocean. The meals were not individually separated, which I don’t care for. I’d like for them to be separated. Plus, the bread was tossed in and one of them is broken for a grilled cheese sandwich. Kinda disappointed, but will try another week for sure. I don’t think it’s worth $26 though. There is for certain a convenience fee for it. I plan to do the other two weeks and cancel. I really don’t think you get enough food to comfortably feed two people.

5 OUT: Product Reviews

So, I have uncovered more old reviews that I have written and never reviewed on my blog. I thought that I would share another 5 of these today. I am happy to see that my drafts on my blog are getting smaller in numbers. I mean, I always a few in there so as to not forget to write about them like my Monthly Reads, Movies, EI, ABA, Semester, and Project 200 pan posts. I always have a draft with the titles in there for those. Other than that, I am free to write whatever posts that I would like. It is a great feeling. I used to have a ton of posts that I planned in there. I have greater freedom now to do what I feel like doing and not feel guilty about it. I still plan on doing some cooking/baking posts now that I have a camera! I am looking forward to those posts!

New England Coffee in Blueberry Cobbler

This was just terrible. I usually enjoy coffee from this brand, but this flavor tasted terrible. Not even coffee creamer could redeem it. I love trying new flavored coffees and would buy from this brand again, just not this flavor. I’m very picky when it comes to my flavored coffees. It has to be just right and hit all the right notes. This coffee just tasted burnt to me, even though it was never burnt once or left out too long. I brew by the cup, so no chance of that happening. There was definitely no “juicy, berry flavor” like they claim. This did not taste like fruit at all. I figured it would taste good like fruit and chocolate but no.

Yankee Candle Tropical Island Breeze

The candle scent was so good that I burned through two of these that I bought at Marshall’s. It is sweet and light and perfect for those muggy summer nights. It smells like summer. These are huge candles and I burned through them so fast, because the scent was always there but never overwhelming. The candle itself burns clean and there is very little wax left in the jar. I would repurchase this if I saw it at Marshall’s again and I am going to be keeping an eye out for more Yankee Candles at my local store. $13 is such a steal!

Gerber Sweet Potato Puffs

food

Dean really enjoyed these puff snacks, but he had to be in the mood for them. They are kind of bland, so I am going to see if there is any healthy adult cereal that he can try with more flavor to it. I would purchase these again, but he is over them. He loves strong flavors.

MJCARE Snail Sheet Mask

mask

I was really afraid of trying this mask, but I had nothing to fear. It smells light and perfumey. I didn’t notice anything but more moisturized skin and a more plump appearance. I find that all sheet masks do the same thing, but I love the experience when I have the time for it. MJCARE masks are also really basic and a dollar a mask. I’ve tried Tony Moly masks and I feel like they only perform a little bit better, giving me a little more glow or a bit clearer pores. I will repurchase on my next Amazon order and I don’t buy very often from them.

Avon Advance Techniques Keep Clear Anti-Dandruff Treatment

hair

Anytime I had a bit of dandruff, this leave in scalp treatment did the trick. I can no longer find this on Avon’s website. I’ve had this for a very long time. I no longer shop Avon, because they are not cruelty free and that’s a big thing that I am trying to stick by now when it comes to beauty products. Avon is also a big pyramid scheme but that is a story for another time.

There you have it. 5 more reviews of products that are no longer part of my collection (besides the other MJCARE sheet masks). What have you used up lately? I still got a ton of reviews that I need to write and share on my blog. I am very backed up. Doing this 200 pan, I am using up stuff faster than I can review it and with school, I don’t even try anymore. I need to start writing these at least twice a month. I know everyone says that they are busy, but I mean, I really am. I’m not sitting here watching Netflix. I am blogging and getting my papers edited to upload for school that’s due today. Speaking of which, I should probably get those done now before I start another procrastinating blog post.

March Empties

Another month gone and another month’s worth of empties. We are getting very close to my birthday month and my vacation month. My dad is having foot surgery and I will be taking a month off of work to take care of him and my son. This year is really flying by. Why couldn’t high school have flown by as much as time seems to do nowadays? Seriously. Time goes by so slow when you are young with no money and when you actually grow up and can spend, time flies by so much you don’t really get the chance to do what you want to do. April starts my lifestyle changes. I have new hair (coming up soon), new exercise routine, and new meal planning. I hope that I stick with it.

For some reason, the last picture was half corrupted, but I am including it anyway. I already threw out all of these empties. I am trying to review the products in my empties that I want to review before throwing them all out. That is why my empties have been late recently. I currently have a ton of older products that I used up that I have yet to write reviews on. I want to review anything new coming in, so I can tackle that empties bucket without adding more to it. You will probably be seeing a shit ton of reviews, especially when I start up college. Reviews are super easy for me to throw on my blog when they are already typed up. 🙂
