We all have been there. You are going to the grocery store super hungry and buy each and every piece you could eat right away in your car, pay a lot at check-out and still have nothing proper to cook a meal at home.
This is the reason I started meal planning for the whole week ahead cause I have always got groceries after work and it was the same every damn time. I love to use Pinterest, Instagram or my cookbooks as inspo.We don´t cook new meals every week but change up some things from time to time.
So why should meal planning save you time and money
– you will only buy what you have on your list
– you know exactly what you have home and what you are you going to cook so there will be less ordering out
– you save time cause you are not wandering around the store and search for meal ideas
– you also save time by only hitting the grocery store once a week
– recipes are mostly free if you are using Pinterest and Instagram as your source
– you can cook the most versatile menus every week
I first cook all the fresh produce and for example meats and then process all the other products later in the week. I have found an amazing meal planner on amazon which makes the whole procedure very clear. On the left side is a column to write down your planned meals and on the right side is place to make a list off all the ingredients your will need. It can be separated as well so your weekly meal plan can stay on the fridge as it is magnetic.
Try it out and tell me what you think. In my opinion there is always room to improve.
We haven´t watched many shows for quite some time cause after December Emilia´s sleeping routine has been so messed up she was up until our bedtime almost everyday so there was no time left for us to watch new shows cause Mama has been really tired.
Now that the issues are revolved and we are back to our eight o´clock bedtime we have binged quite the shows the last two weeks and since it has been some time that I have shared new shows with you guys I wanted to give you an update.
Big Timber // We were only searching for a show to watch while working on the computer but both of us got so hooked and we watched it in two days. So interesting. Who would have thought we could get sucked in by a show about wood.
Inventing Anna // Really love it so far. I have watched the first few episodes almost immediately. It is super interesting and of course I also stayed for the fashion.
Archive 81 // I wanted to watch this so badly but had to stop after the first episode. It is just to frightening for me and since I have to get Emilia in the middle of the night from her bed I can not watch horror anymore but my husband really liked it. Inbetween he said that it has some crazy twists and abnormal sh** but it was scary good to watch.
Catching Killers // For the last few months we have totally been into real crime shows and started a lot of different ones but this one was quite outstanding and also very interesting so we are definitely hoping for a second season.
The Kominsky Method // We loved this one a lot and have been very sad that it ended. Super funny but also a great show about friends you have your whole live. I loved it a lot and we will probably watch it again.
Stay Close // This is about a former stripper that ran away and changed her identity but after many years her past is coming back. It is definitely strange and for my opinion a little too easy for the killers to murder that many people but other than that we wouldn´t have guessed the outcome at all. It was really exciting the whole time.
The Stranger // Not a huge fan of this show. So many things that were mentioned in the beginning didn´t end up or have been totally ignored or never revealed in the end. Bascially the wife of the main figure vanishes and it is all about finding her plus a stranger revealing secrets to different people which are all somehow connected.
Clickbait // Was alright but not my cup of tea. It is a mini show with only 8 episodes and that is absolutely enough. It shows how social media can easily be used to turn one´s live upside down and also share so many untruth facts about people which can also end very very badly.
Ginny & Georgia // I watched all of the episodes and ultimately decided I don´t like it and am not going to watch another season. It is just too much and over the top. I don´t like her scamming her way into every place and I also don´t like the daughter questioning her mother all the time and eventually leaving home. It has some cute parts and pretty outfits but not enough for me to keep watching.
So that´s it for another round-up of Netflix shows. Everytime I recap all of our shows I keep thinking “oh boy those are a lot of shows we watched” and then I go back on all of my Netflix posts and there will show up even more but I guess this is just normal am I right? With the possibilities of binge watching and streaming everything at all times.
today´s post is an exciting one. I am finally sharing the gender with y´all. We have known for some weeks now cause this time around we did some testing at the beginning of my pregnancy which required bloodwork and they were also able to find out what our second baby will be. I was so excited – even more than with baby number one I think.
So for our second gender reveal I wanted to do something different than the baloon we had for everyone the first time around (although I got my husband cause he insisted on it). The idea of baking a cake was actually pretty cute and so I went with this one (also it is less work to clean up afterwards).
anyone already up ?? Most of you are probably still asleep unless you have kids hopping around on you. We have been up for quite some time but we only had dinner with some friends yesterday and didn´t go to bed much later than usual.
My favorite part about the first day of the new year is going outside for a walk in the mornings. It is truly quiet and so peaceful cause almost everyone is still inside or asleep.
So I rounded up my top ten most read posts like I do every year and it is always a surprise to me what you guys loved most.
