With the Low Country Boil, I will not be adding the shrimp. I am not a seafood, fish eating person, and neither are my kids, so I’ll be leaving that out! I know…please don’t send the food police to my house! 

I found another recipe that I’ll be making this week that I’ll share with you all….

Creamy Farmer’s Market Tortellini - everything about this dish sounds delish! 

I hope you can use these fabulous recipes this week!

Meal Plan and Websites

I get a little giddy when I discover new websites that I find and I can apply them to my life! 

In 3 short weeks, the princess and 3 jesters will be headed BACK TO SCHOOL; to which I do have mixed feelings about. So, in the meantime, I have dedicated these next few weeks to Operation Get The House Organized and Back To School Ready! 

I don’t have a good “eye” when it comes to getting things organized, where to start, how to get it all nice and pretty. So, I am very thankful that other moms out there do, and they have a blog that helps you!

My entire house needs a major makeover in every way. But, with time and money, I’ll need to tackle it one room at a time. And I found Morganize with Me to help me! She does a great job breaking down areas of your home and life to help you stay organized! 

I used to have a pretty decent cleaning routine going, but, I’ve fallen out of routine and with 4 kids and constant activities, some areas of the house get neglected, so I’ve found a better routine that will fit in my schedule and we will have a clean house again! So, checkout Clean Mama . Her weekly cleaning schedule is simple and fast! I also like her choice of products that she uses, I’ve been using them as well. I also read up on my friends’ cleaning blog  I Dream of Clean. She has great and useful tips as well!

I’m always up for some new recipes to try out! And I discovered Chelsea’s Messy Apron. Easy,simple, tasty recipes! 

I hope you can benefit from these sites just as much as I will!! 

As far as a meal plan goes for this week, there’s one meal I’d like to share with you.
