Happy Tuesday (that feels like Monday) + first day of November my loves!
I was chatting with a mama friend and going over the direction I want to take CBM, mainly it being a balanced resource of all things I love in my life and most importantly posting consistently.... Oh so hard when life gets in the way! And I will admit recipe testing, creating pretty and delicious, semi-healthy, and sometimes completely indulgent meals, for my family and friends is an absolute favorite.
But I've also spoken a lot about balance lately. The truth is that the days that I rock it as a mama, are the days that I sometimes neglect the house, and the days I rock it as a "house wife" I suck at being a mama (read wayyyy too much screen time) etc etc. And with baby number 2 on it's way, this mama on modified bed-rest and a to-do list that gets longer and longer, I've realized I need all the help I can get.
Even just pulling out my trusty slow cooker/crock pot once a week makes me feel like a complete ROCKSTAR. So, first up is a list of easy peasy, delicious slow cooker meals that I have been rotating and loving. Because there is NOTHING like knowing dinner is taken care of as you are walking into the house after a crazy day knowing that dinner is pretty much set.
Freshie pants eating the frozen corn!!! ^^^
Balsamic Glazed Roast Beef (absolutely amazing. I serve with the Trader Joes frozen brown rice)
Chicken Tikka Masala (a family favorite!!)

Game Day Apps
Buffalo Wings (a reader swears by these!)
We are off to toddler yoga and to run a couple errands and since I made my fav soup in the crock pot last night I don't have to worry about dinner, other than maybe some bread for grilled cheeses... mmmm oh yeah and maybe a salad.
