Today I am sharing some great meal prep tips and a recipe for our favorite baked ziti!

Meal Prep Tips and a Delicious recipe for Baked Ziti by Uncommon Designs

A while back, I was waving the white flag and surrendering the fact that I needed help getting a decent meal on the table. Weeknights are particularly difficult for our family because we all have a packed schedule. We were making the time to eat together, but I struggled to find the time to prepare something that didn’t come right out of a box and something that was remotely healthy. Something had to change… I needed to come up with a meal plan.

When coming up with my way to plan I knew that I wanted two things: one shopping trip to the grocery store per week and one weekend afternoon to prepare the bulk of our meals. I usually cook the most elaborate meal on Sunday (don’t worry… these are super simple recipes)  when we are home and have the most time and do a little prep for the rest of the week at the same time.

Here is a look at a sample meal plan for our family:

Sunday: Baked Ziti, salad and bread

Monday: Leftovers (this is our busiest night of the week)

Tuesday: Chicken Soft Tacos with Refried Beans

Wednesday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Fresh Fruit and Sliced Cucumber Salad

Thursday: Chicken Parmesan with Caesar Salad and Green Beans

Friday: Eating out

Saturday: Chili and Cornbread

Here is what my Sunday meal prep looks like:

  • Cook and shred boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Brown ground beef
  • Cut vegetables and fruit for snacks, lunches, and salad
  • Roast peppers for snacks and tacos
  • Cook full meal for Sunday night
  • Brew a Gallon of Tea

Rubbermaid Brilliance Collection

Wal-Mart is now carrying the new line of Rubbermaid® Brilliance™ storage containers and I love them. They are clear so anyone in the family can grab what they need and also help to throw dinner together. You can find the Rubbermaid® Brilliance™ products in the food storage section.

These storage containers are also 100% leakproof and perfect for leftovers. Take a look at my leftover baked ziti… yep help upside down and that rubber seal prevents any leakage! There is also no worry that the red sauce will stain my container.

Meal Prep Tips and a Delicious recipe for Baked Ziti by Uncommon Designs

The set is stackable so you can save precious space in the fridge and you can reheat right from the container. They are microwave save and splatter proof… that puts even more time back when I don’t have to clean the microwave after a major re-heating bomb. This is just a great and convenient product and it is so durable that my children won’t “borrow” them for crafts and things. It is definitely food storage options

Now let’s make some Baked Ziti!

Meal Prep Tips and a Delicious recipe for Baked Ziti by Uncommon Designs

Baked Ziti Recipe

This is a family favorite recipe at our home. It is delicious and filling and just is so simple to make. No need for a long ingredient list when I can use a delicious Bertolli’s® Organic sauce that is Tuscan cooking at its finest. They’ve perfected the taste of a delicious sauce and their Organic sauces come in several flavors including:

  • Tomato/Basil (This is what I used)
  • Creamy Basil Alfredo

Let’s get cooking! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Jar Bertolli’s® Organic Tomato and Basil Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground sausage (I used mild)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups of water
  • 12 oz. ziti pasta
  • 1 TB  italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
  • shredded Mozzarella cheese; optional

Bertolli's®

This is what the bottle of the Bertolli’s® Organic Tomato and Basil Sauce  looks like. You can find it in the spaghetti sauce section of your local Wal-Mart store.

Directions:

  1. Drizzle olive oil in a large pan and brown ground sausage, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic paste and stir well, cook for 2 minutes
  3. Add crushed tomatoes, the jar of Bertolli’s® Organic Tomato and Basil Sauce and italian seasoning and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the water and dry pasta. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to a low boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until noodles are tender.
  5. Add the half and half and parmesan cheese. Top it off with a little dash of the italian seasoning and you are done!

You can add mozzarella cheese if you like, but we are trying to watch our waistline and decided to skip the additional cheese.  Now… let’s save a little money using Ibotta!

My Morning Coffee Just Got More Amazing

Can I tell you a secret?  I am secretly a homebody. I love having loads of people at my home, but I just love being here. Working from home was never something I thought would be possible, but thanks to this wonderful world of blogging I am able to and I love it. That isn’t the only thing I love these days.  There is something new and fancy, and super easy (totally my speed).  I’m in love… with International Delight® One Touch Latte™.

International Delight® One Touch Latte™

Please don’t get the wrong idea, working from home is wonderful, but as an entrepreneur, full-time mom, and leader of many wonderful groups in my community, my cup is full. Therefore, my coffee cup needs to be full, too.  I find myself squeezing productivity into every moment of the day, but there are about 15 minutes in the morning that are for me to relax, journal, pray and enjoy a good cup of coffee.

International Delight® One Touch Latte™

Within those precious 15 minutes, I can now enjoy my coffee and it now has just gotten an upgrade! I love a good latte and now I can make my own sweet, frothy delight at home in just seconds! There are just three simple steps to create this drink. Fill your coffee cup ⅔ full, give your latte can a shake and point, press and enjoy!

International Delight® One Touch Latte™

I’ve been an International Delight® creamer consumer for years, but I have to tell you that I am so smitten with this new International Delight® One Touch Latte™. I feel like I am getting a real coffee house style drink right in my own kitchen without having to get out of my PJ’s! You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own. If I’m doing it, you know it is easy, right? There is just no extra time for the fuss… until now!

International Delight® One Touch Latte™

Once you brew your coffee, all you need is the International Delight® One Touch Latte™. You can use it up to seven times and it comes in three delicious flavors: Vanilla (my favorite), Mocha and Caramel.

Watch this video to see how simple it is to make:

How easy is that?  Just shake, point, press and become completely obsessed. I feel like a barista in my own kitchen. The great part is that it doesn’t cost nearly as much as it does in the coffee shop!

 International Delight® One Touch Latte™

If you are wondering where you can find this little bit of heaven, head to your local Wal-Mart to the refrigerated dairy creamer section.

What flavor will you try?

You guys… I have a major confession to make.  If we could only eat one thing for the rest of our lives, I’m pretty sure it would be cereal.  We eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is actually a meal that I can throw together in a jiffy and I know that the kids are getting some wholesome goodness that they might not find in other convenience foods. The new year is also the perfect time to get your family in the habit of eating a filling and delicious breakfast! Cereal so full of wholesome goodness and is just such an easy way to start the day, don’t you agree?

Post Cereals

Here are a few of our favorites… Post CerealsHoney Bunches of Oats, Post Cereals Raisin Bran and Post Cereals Grape Nuts Original. They are all Post Cereals and you can find them in our pantry most of the time. Our kids are super active, so they need fiber that prepares their body for the day and keeps them with a full tummy until the lunch bell rings. Not to mention that they have whole grains that are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants. So important for us all!

Grape Nuts at Wal-Mart

They can be found in the cereal aisle at your local Wal-Mart store.  I purchased Grape Nuts Original cereal, because I have such a fun idea that is perfect for breakfast, snacks or even dessert!

Yogurt Parfaits

These yogurt parfaits topped with grape nuts cereal are a fun way to get your kids to eat a wholesome breakfast and they who doesn't love eating out of fancy glasses?

I love yogurt parfaits.  There is just something about them that really appeals to me. I love them with a little crunch, a little sweetness and a little fruit.  The recipe I’m going to share with you today combines all three of my parfait requirements!

These yogurt parfaits topped with grape nuts cereal are a fun way to get your kids to eat a wholesome breakfast and they who doesn't love eating out of fancy glasses? I especially wanted to make parfaits because I just received something very special from my mother in law.  After she saw my entertaining closet post, she thought I might enjoy having her parfait glasses that she no longer uses.  Guys, I was so excited!  Just look at how well she took care of them.  They were individually wrapped in paper.  The wrapping paper just made them look like a party waiting to happen… so let’s party!

After polling the girls, they have decided that their favorite Valentine treat to date are these Gumball Flowers. Apparently they were quite a hit for both of their classes and they loved them, too! I thought I’d share this fun idea again so you could grab the supplies and make them this year!

Let’s learn how to make them…

Gumball Flowers Tutorial 

Supplies Needed:

Instructions:

Gumball Flowers An Adorable #Valentines Treat!  www.uncommondesignsonline.com  #valentinestreat #kidscrafts

Step One.   Cut a square of cellophane a little larger than the mason jar lid and lay it on top of the lid.  Add a large gumball to the middle.

Gumball Flowers An Adorable #Valentines Treat!  www.uncommondesignsonline.com  #valentinestreat #kidscrafts

Step Two.  Add small gumballs around the larger gumball in the center.

Gumball Flowers An Adorable #Valentines Treat!  www.uncommondesignsonline.com  #valentinestreat #kidscrafts

Step Three. Place the funnel end of the plastic balloon stick right on top of the large gumball in the middle of the mason jar lid.

Gumball Flowers An Adorable #Valentines Treat!  www.uncommondesignsonline.com  #valentinestreat #kidscrafts

Step Four.  Now you will gather up the cellophane around the gumballs and attach with the small rubberband to the plastic balloon funnel.

Gumball Flowers An Adorable #Valentines Treat!  www.uncommondesignsonline.com  #valentinestreat #kidscrafts

Step Five.  Finally, you will attach the stick to the top of the flower.  I trimmed the stick just about in half to make  the flower more to scale.  You may also want to add a dab of hot glue to the stick at the top to attach it to the funnel end.  Otherwise, it could separate easily.  To finish it off, add ribbon to fancy things up a bit!

I am really excited for the girls to hand these sweet flowers out to their classmates.  They are just so cute and are perfect for all ages to give to their friends!

Yes… I know that it is already January 5th and I am just now getting ready to get organized… you did read that right.  I am not organized yet, but I have a plan and a little fire in me and that is pretty much all this girl needs to get the year off to a great start.

2017 Word of the Year

2017 Word of the Year: Present

This is the first time I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of choosing a word of the year, but this word has come across my mind and prayers too many times to count lately.  I want to be PRESENT. I want my kids to feel like when I’m with them, I’m listening, I care about what they care about and that they are the most important people to me in the world. I want my husband to have less of me on the computer as he falls asleep each and every night.  I want my friends to not feel forgotten or left behind. I want my extended family to know that they are important and cared for. I don’t want them to feel like I am too busy to talk to them. Most important of all, I want to be in a position to be able to listen to the Holy Spirit and know that God has placed me exactly where I am each and every second. I feel like all my relationships need me to be fully committed, connected and present.

2017-word-of-the-year

Here is the deal about making a commitment like this, I’m going to need all of the help I can get. First, I am going to have to pray everyday to be present and aware. I’m also going to have to set some boundaries with my schedule and our family’s activities to make this happen.  I also have to get organized. I’m a firm believer that there are no coincidences in this life and I saw a post from a blogging friend of mine that she had written an ebook… it was about organization.  My first reaction was you go girl… I’m so proud of you!   My second was, I need to get that book.  The title had me at hello…

It is that time of year again folks.  I have to admit… the excitement of a new year on the horizon makes me giddy. Nothing really changes, but expectations seem to loom on the horizon and some are daunting to me at times.  Losing weight, less eating out, more family time, less tv…. those are my normal standards, but I want this year to be different.

Free Printable New Years Gift Tags.  Welcome the new year with this great gift attached to a pineapple! See more at http://www.uncommondesignsonline.com/

I want to have a new outlook on the new year and I’m challenging myself to dig a little deeper and let go of some things that may not be what I really need to do right now.  Here are the things that are super important to me and you guys are the first that I am sharing them with.

Free Printable New Years Gift Tags.  Welcome the new year with this great gift attached to a pineapple! See more at http://www.uncommondesignsonline.com/ This year, I want to live in the present and feel the joy of every one of life’s little moments.  They are everywhere.  Joy is all around me and I want to be in the moment and present and feel it to at its greatest level.  That means I need to slow things down a bit, focus a little harder on some things and decided if I’m spending my time in the way that paves a course to being in the moment.

Free Printable New Years Gift Tags.  Welcome the new year with this great gift attached to a pineapple! See more at http://www.uncommondesignsonline.com/ Faith is also something that I want to be more passionate in the year to come.  I am not a newbie daughter in Christ, but I am beginning to see things from a totally new lens and it is requiring me to step out of my comfort zone more and more. I just pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to impress this desire and urgency upon me.  I can see it trickling down to my sweet girls and that is what my goal as a mom is all about.  I want my girls to know that they are loved by Christ and with Him alone they can do anything. I want to learn more and do more and am so thankful that I am in a position right now in my life where I can.

Finally, I want to be open to the possibility of growth, of overcoming fears, letting go of things that hold me back and to surrender to the plan that God has laid before me.
