Show Us Your Life - favorite main dishes


I try really hard to menu plan in advance, but that doesn't always happen.  With the help of Pinterest, I usually manage to throw something together every night, even if it is last minute.  Here are some of my favorite go-to main dish dinners.  You may notice a trend...each one is easy to make and serve, because that's how I roll.

Nothing says comfort food like good ole American Shepherd's Pie.  I. Love. This.

I love these lasagna roll-ups because they are so easy to make and even easier to serve.  I recently had a guest who couldn't eat dairy, so I made a separate pan of these without cheese...so much easier than trying to leave part of a whole lasagna cheese-free.

These little meatloaf muffins are wonderful.  I use the meatloaf recipe I've always used, but this it is so much easier to ensure all of the meat is cooked the whole way through...and they are perfect servings.

What are some of your go-to main dish recipes?

Thirty Days of Thankful - Day 16

Today, I'm thankful it's Friday.  
Looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

DaySpring - {in}spired deals review

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share another product review hosted by DaySpring and {in}courage. I was so excited to come home and find a box stuffed full of Christmas goodies from DaySpring.  Their Love Came Down collection is probably my favorite.  I already had one of these table runners and always debated whether to put it on the dining room table or on the coffee table in the living room.  Now I have one for each spot.

I also have the felt advent calendar mentioned in this post.  I cannot wait to get it out and share the true story of Christmas with my family again this year.  This frosted Purest Love trio tea light set is beautiful and would add a glimmer of simplicity to any corner of your home.  I love the message it sends and can't wait to give it as a gift for Christmas.  This Wonders of His Love ornament will add a sweet touch to any Christmas tree.  I have two of these and plan to gift one.  I'm thinking mine will remain on display somewhere in our home long after the greens are packed up for another year.  The jewelry tree is not part of the product review, but I thought it displayed the ornament well.  I am also really excited to read a page from the Advent Tabletop Devotional each day in December.  DaySpring offers these items for such reasonable prices.  I {in}courage you to hop on over and do some Christmas shopping and maybe pick a few things up for yourself.  That's where I'm headed right about...now.  Happy Shopping...and remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Thirty Days of Thankful - Day 10

Today it seemed like I really didn't have a whole lot to be thankful for as I woke up feeling awful.  I had a stressful week and planned my weekend around trying to pull things back together.  I had a list a mile long that included family time, taking our Christmas pictures, a haircut & open house at the spa, groceries, Target, hanging Christmas lights, getting my jewelry cleaned, catching up on laundry, and cleaning the house.  I guess someone had other plans for me, as I didn't leave our bedroom and bathroom until after 4:00 in the afternoon.  The only thing I did today was sleep and pray that I would feel better.  All those chores & errands?  I'll have to do some tomorrow and catch up in the evenings this week.  I'm thankful that I didn't have to take a day off work and that Dan & Daniel were home to help me and take care of Joel while I couldn't make my way out of bed.
