Can you believe it’s NOVEMBER, already?  This is the time of year when we blink and it’s going to be a new year and we’ll all wonder how we missed the last three months.  Personally, I’m just hoping to get through this Tuesday.  Living in a swing state, I’m really over the calls, the knocks on the door, the ads on my TV, facebook, Pandora…they’re everywhere!  Way scarier than Halloween in my opinion.


Monday: Oh-Honey-Honey Boneless BBQ Wings with sweet potato fries

I'm a mom that works outside the house trying to create home cooked meals for my little family of three. My husband is a small business owner, and my daughter turned 2 in February.
