Eat at Home Cooking Challenge

I'm just a wee bit excited about getting dinner done this week!

I love using my Eat at Home meals all the time, but I just stay a wee bit more on track when we do a challenge week, so it makes me so happy when you join in and make dinner with me too.

Tonight we're having the Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili and Maraschino Cherry Cake from the Eat at Home Week of 2/11/19 Slow Cooker meals, and goodness, my home smells so good. 

And dinner. is. done.

I'm also going to go ahead and make some cornbread (my husband will be so happy because I never make cornbread), and I noticed that she has her cornbread recipe in the 2/18/19 slow cooker recipes. Since I'll have plenty of cornmeal left over from tonight's meal, I figure it's worth testing it out!


(If you're curious and have kept up with PPP very long you know I don't normally eat this many carbs especially on a Monday as I carb cycle using Faster Way to Fat Loss, but I'm training for a half marathon and have to run 10 miles tonight to keep up. SO, BRING ON THE CARBS.) 🙂 🙂 🙂 




(This is Tiffany from Eat at Home's pic of her yummy maraschino cherry cake all done. Now I kind of wish I'd done it in two layers, but I was thinking I'd be easier to keep in the fridge in a pan. Hmph!)
