Menu Plan Monday is BACK

This year I resolve to cook, and cook a little more Colombian. Even as much as I love the convenience of Schwan’s and Costco premade meals, one goal I have for 2015 is to get back to cooking actual meals.  I was kicked in the butt by a video I recently watched called “nutrition to nurture” by Leanne Ely.  The holidays have me missing my Colombian mama and grandmami a ton too. Especially their cooking. Since moving to Michigan, I don’t see these ladies as much as I used to. My grandma used to bring me home cooked Colombian food once a week...awesome, right!? I miss her food so much! 

Now that I am FAR away from where I grew up in San Diego [where my Colombian family settled back in the 70's], I’ve discovered that cooking Colombian food makes me feel a little closer to home! Plus I think it’s super important for my kids to experience food from their heritage. To learn more about where they come from. I researched some Colombian and Latin American inspired recipes and added them to my menu plan.

I am super motivated to get back to menu planning and providing “real” food for dinner. This past week [it helped I had a week off work!]  I made a menu and went grocery shopping. Three grocery carts later... I had all I needed to cook yummy meals for my family. Seriously...I had to check out, pay, load my stuff in the car only to turn right around to finish my shopping!
