Welcome to my Musings of a Housewife


Sassy Moms in the City is hosting the Inlinkz widget. Scroll down to share your own recent healthy recipe or meal plan from your blog. We simply request you link back to one of us, and that the recipes you share use primarily real, whole foods.

As a busy working mom, I’m always trying different techniques and products to make the week run more efficiently. Meal planning works well for our family, keeping me on track, organized and ensures I prepare healthy meals. It’s important to me that I’m doing whatever I can to instill good eating habits in my girls and avoiding that dreaded question every night – What’s for dinner??.

CookingPlanit.com is such a great solution for busy moms. So many of us have no time to cook much less hunt down healthy recipes. After initially reviewing the site I was hooked and so excited to share it with you!

    With the JCPENNEY gift card I would buy my granddaughter Shiann a cool new pair of boots. She’s really into western cowgirl boots.
