Working Girl Lunches: Part ONE

newfoodiefeb

PRESENTS

As part of being a meal planner, I love getting ALL my meals ready/ironed out for the week!  This doesn’t just include dinner, it most certainly includes breakfast, lunch and snacks as well!  Lunch is a meal that I find particularly hard for people.  Tons of people just go out, get lunch, which can mean unhealthy choices, and unnecessary spending!  these are two things I’m not a fan of, so I have some great lunch options for you today!

PRESENTSdog treats

So today is my 31st birthday!  It is also ONE year to the day since we got Maggie, my first dog ever!  It has been an absolute blessing having her!  One of my favorite things to do is see what different healthy things I can give Maggie instead of typical dog treats!  Before I gave her any of this I did do my research to make sure there’s no known problems with any of these foods. Of course, before doing any of this consult your veterinarian.  However: my dog in particular has had no issues with any of the following foods.  Let’s get to the yummies! Continue reading

Food In Your City: Queens Part II!

newfoodiefebPresents:rp_food-in-your-city.pngQueens, NY Part II

Last year, I had Estelle on the blog chatting about Queens restaurants.  This year, she decided to do a part two of that post!  There is so much to do in ALL of New York, but Queens is an area that I do not know much about, DESPITE my whole family being from there, so I must say, it is awesome to have Estelle give me a look inside this lovely city! And now, I give you the wonderful, Estelle!

Three years in, I’m realizing just how much pride I have for my little Queens neighborhood. When Cassie let me know I was invited to participate in Foodie February, the first thought was to do a part two of my post from last year. I love any excuse to talk about Queens, apparently. So I hope you enjoy this little glimpse at the food spots I can’t stop recommending!

Foodie February: Meal Planning 2.0

newfoodiefebPresents:meal planning 2.0

One Year Ago…

I thought I was TOTALLY awesome, had this DOWN and wrote a post about Meal Planning. I was about to move in with Jon, knew I had to cook 3-4 nights a week, and was trying to come up with a totally kickass system. I was feeling really, really confident in this and couldn’t find ANY flaws in my plan.  It was PERFECT.  

One Year Later…

I realize I only half knew what I was getting myself into.  I have a grocery store PROBLEM.  I have realized that the phrase life happens, is real, and I have come to terms that I had flaws in my first system.  But hey, now I have it pretty much, ironed out.  And this is not to say my first system wasn’t good, it was!  It was more that I didn’t have a grasp on how much MONEY what I was proposing, was going to cost.  You can’t cook steak every week Cassie, not when you choose filet mignon.  A few subtle changes, and some new organizational tools in tow, and I have this.  I know I do.  Until I create version 3.0.  Because I’m always nitpicking.  OF COURSE.
