When You Clean Up Your House…

Yesterday when my husband looked at me and said, ‘I think we should do some cleaning today’, I couldn’t hide the shock on my face.  It was a rainy Sunday, perfect for napping and movies, and he suggested cleaning?!  So spring clean we did!!!  In the process, I found a TON of recipes that needed to be organized and pinned.  Which got me searching for more recipes, which linked to a few more, and you know where it goes from there…next thing you know you’ve pinned 35 new ‘must make’ dinner recipes and 21 new complex cake recipes.

And then it’s Monday and you have a crazy busy day of yoga, running around, the grocery store, shoe shopping, a few returns, paperwork and a trip to Costco.  I did manage to get what was going to be tomorrow night’s dinner in the crockpot on low around 2pm, but that’s about it.  Bummer because I had another cookie dough ball recipe that I was eager to make this week…hopefully coming soon!

Despite the warm temps, the BOY was in the mood for chili.  Technically, he requested bison chili, but I went a totally different direction with a white chicken chili.  Another one of my new found pins!

I was surprised to see the BOY came home earlier than expected today.  We decided to enjoy the gorgeous air with a walk, but swung by our neighbors first to drop off a gift for their new baby.  We ended up hanging out for an hour holding their sweet baby girl and catching up on life.  By the time we left, a walk was off the table.  The BOY didn’t feel like cooking, so my meal plan got all thrown off before it started and we headed over to our favorite local Mexican restaurant to pick up dinner and come home and watch Spotlight.

I’m not exactly sure when we’re going going to eat our chili but it looks and smells incredible, and I know there will be plenty for lunch leftovers during the week.

Do you ever fall down the recipe rabbit hole?

What are you cooking this week?
