January Meals

Sometime during the first part of the month, I decided to start photographing the meals I made. I try to cook about 5 nights a week and photographing my meals has been great motivation.

I  have been debating if I wanted to include lots of recipes on my blog... for now I have decided to just post a weekly recap with links to recipes. To kick it off, here are the meals I made {and photographed} during the month of January. They are all pretty healthy with lots of veggies. 

Bon apetit.

  1. Cheree,
    I'm a lurker that found you from Sarah's blog. I think we may have even gone to Harding together. (?) Anyway, just had to come out of hiding and tell you that your meals look great. I'm a total foodie and love seeing others' creations.

    I also love hearing about the books that you are reading. This is my first year to join the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge and so far I'm really enjoying it.

    Have a great day and keep the great posts coming!

  2. Thanks for dropping by Cat! I went to high school w/Sarah and then was at HU from 98-02, so it definitely possible we crossed paths!

    Thanks for the comment about my meals :)

    Good luck with the 52 Books - it is totally doable!

  3. Yep, I was at HU from 8/97 to 12/00 so I'm sure we passed on the sidewalk at some point. I was in Regina and roomed with Sarah for awhile when they put a bunch of us girls over at Harding Place. Ah, the good old days. :-)

    It's nice to "meet" you.


Family Hike at Fiery Gizzard

On Saturday we had originally planned to go on a group hike on the Fiery Gizzard Trail , but it was cancelled at the last minutes. So...
