It’s the busiest time of year! Sometimes I get nervous even looking at my to-do list but I have to because otherwise I will 100% forget the really important things I need to do. During this crazy time of year the temperatures are dropping which means the only thing I want to go outside for are my runs or to ski. Lately, I am really searching for things that I can cut out to make more time for the people I really want to enjoy this time of year with. PS Andrew, Skye and I are thrilled that we will have Brooke and Knox for Christmas this year. We switch off every year so this is our ‘lucky’ year:). The celebrating will be top notch!
One of my favorite things to cut out is the grocery store… Especially the grocery store with Skye because somehow a quick trip with Skye to the store turns into an hour event that leaves me more tired than a 20 miler haha! I love that Blue Apron delivers right to our front door everything we need in a refrigerated box for some amazing meals. The ingredients have been fresh for us 100% of the time over the years and they send all of the right proportions so you don’t waste any food.
For our latest delivery we started things off with the Sesame-Sweet Chili Wonton Noodles w/Chicken and it was so so good.
I had this the night before a big workout and it was just what I needed. I have never made a meal like this at home so I felt pretty cool.
The kids loved it too. Blue Apron offers a 2-Person Plan or a 4-Person Family Plan. We go with the family plan most of the time and it feeds us all so well. I’ll even have leftovers for lunch the next day sometimes too.
The meals from Blue Apron take 40 minutes or less to prepare and some even take 20 minutes! I love having new and fun recipes to try at home because eating out at a restaurant isn’t something we want to do often with three kids.
PS I was making this meal at about 4 pm and it was already getting dark outside
Brooke was very excited to help me with the Chicken & Black Bean Enchilada with Creamy Cilantro Sauce.
I am always so excited for the new recipes that Blue Apron has for us to try. Each week they offer 16 recipes to choose from. It’s sometimes really hard to narrow down to just a few when I want them all!
I hope that this time of year is going well for you. I hope you are able to get the things done that you need to along with spending time each day doing something that you love to do. Stay warm and keep me updated with how your training is going this time of year.
Anyone reading with a blended family? How do you share the holidays?
When cooking—> do you clean as you go or clean after you are done?
-I’m all about cleaning as you go and Andrew prefers to do it all at the end so when we cook together we try to meet somewhere in the middle on this!
Do you keep a to-do list, use a day-planner or use your phone to keep track of things?
What time of day does it start to get dark out where you live?
