6 Week Challenge | Week 1

When I set out to challenge myself to 6 weeks of making myself a better person, I didn't realize that it becomes habit after about 3 days or so.  The first 3 days are the hardest, and then it becomes kind of a new routine.  I cook dinner a few times a week, but really got into the habit of cooking daily when I started this.

The big thing was cleaning up the kitchen! Blah! Who  really likes to do that? But, I'm pretty anal about my kitchen being clean by when I go to bed. If my sink is dirty and the kitchen is not clean when I get up to have my morning coffee, it really ruins my coffee. Literally. Isn't that awful?

Okay, so here are some recipes I used this week.  I went for simple and easy, and decided to stick with the normal things that I cook even though those Pinterest pins haunted me and said "you should really branch out and try me today..."

Monday, I made a recipe from a friend's mother in law. It was SO easy and a winner. It's called Tamale Casserole, and sound disgusting. But it really is good. Promise!

Here is the recipe for Tamale Casserole. I added ground beef. Don't get freaked out by the tamales in a can. And DEFINITELY don't forget to take off the corn wrap that the tamales are in!

Tuesday, I made homemade enchiladas. Beef. We do a lot of ground beef. Here is the recipe I used for this dinner.

Wednesday, I had planned for Chicken Pot Pie, but husby wasn't feeling well and wanted Chinese Take-Out. No complaints there. Clean kitchen AND dinner out. Off my "challenge" but isn't it all about making the family happy!? ;)

Thursday, we did pork ribs in the crockpot. So simple and SO yummy. Here is the recipe.

Friday, Meatball Subs. Hubby's favorite!

Saturday, we went simple with a PF Chang dinner. It's not homemade, but it's yummy and easy for dinner for 2.

Sunday, we ate dinner at our friends house for a birthday and Big Brother. We're so addicted every season to BB, but BB16 seriously is a good one. We are loving it!

I would love to hear what you guys are eating this week! Anyone willing to share recipes, that would be awesome too! I'm always up for trying new things...especially when they're easy and yummy!

 Can I get an amen on this one?!

How is the challenge going for everyone so far!? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and comments!
