Outfits of the Week + What I Cooked for Supper (12/13– 12/19)

I’m officially on Christmas break, and I couldn’t be more happy about it! My outfits over the next few weeks will probably be super basic and casual, but here’s the somewhat put-together outfits I donned this week.

dress (similar, similar, similar) / cardigan (similar) / booties

peplum top (similar) / scarf (similar, similar) / jeggings / booties

striped shirt (old from Old Navy, similar, similar) /  leggings / sneakers (Mine are from Soles of Savannah, but here’s the link for the manufacturer’s website. They’re cheaper at Soles!)

flannel  / jeans (similar) / booties

dolman sleeve sweater / jeans (similar) / loafers (similar)

We had family visiting this week, so I honestly didn’t cook much, but here are the recipes we did try.

Main Dishes + Sides

Tex-Mex turkey tacos – I used the recipe in this Skinnytaste cookbook, but this one is an adaptation and very similar.

Chili – This recipe is so easy and is a go-to this time of year. I have some family visiting, so I made this and took to my parents’ house, and my mom made potato soup, too.

Breakfast casserole with hashbrowns – This is a quick and easy meal to throw together on a busy morning or weeknight.

Layered Doritos casserole – I have to put in a disclaimer that this isn’t necessarily a healthy dish and isn’t something I make when it’s just Daniel, Isaac, and me. However, we had a get-together to go to, so I made it for that, and it was really good.

Dessert

Caramel apple crumble – Although the recipe makes enough for two, simply double the recipe if you’re making this for more people.

Outfits of the Week + What I Cooked for Supper (12/6– 12/12)

How was everyone’s week? We had state testing every day this week, which made for some long days, but the semester’s winding down quickly.

As usual, here’s what I wore this week, along with what I cooked for supper. Enjoy!

sweater (Mine’s from Marshall’s, similar, similar) / dress / booties

utility jacket

sweater / jeans / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart)

criss top (similar) / jeans (similar) / leopard sneakers

top (similar) / joggers / sneakers (Mine are from Soles of Savannah, but here’s the link for the manufacturer’s website. They’re cheaper at Soles!)

poncho (similar) / leggings / sneakers (Mine are from Soles of Savannah, but here’s the link for the manufacturer’s website. They’re cheaper at Soles!)

Main Dishes + Sides

Grilled chicken wraps with sweet potato fries

Slowcooker Santa Fe Chicken – Daniel ate this in a tortilla, while I added avocado, shredded cheese, and plain Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream).

Grilled steak sandwiches with zucchini fries – I couldn’t find the exact recipe online, but it’s from this Skinnytaste cookbook.

Skinny chicken Parmesan with roasted asparagus

Dessert

Vanilla cake donuts with maple glaze – This recipe is from this cookbook. I made it for breakfast last weekend.

Sugar cookies – These were delicious, but let me just say that cooking with a toddler is not for the faint-hearted, ha ha!

I’m starting off today’s post by linking everything I wore this week.

Since Thanksgiving was this week, I didn’t cook as much “regular” food as I usually do. What I mean is, there were several evenings when we had family gatherings to attend, where I fixed a traditional Thanksgiving dish, and several nights we ate leftovers. I figure most of you were in the same situation.

Main Dishes + Sides

Pizza – I’ve shared this dough recipe multiple times, but this is a quick and easy recipe to use.

Chicken Parm Stuffed Peppers – These are really good! Additionally, leaving out the pasta makes this a low[er] carb dish.

Chicken quesadillas and Mexican rice – This is one of our favorite dishes! I just cook diced chicken in a skillet and sprinkle it with taco seasoning, then add peppers and onions and let it all finish cooking together. I add chicken and shredded cheese into tortillas and let them cook on each side.

Dessert

Nutella S’mores Bars – I halved the recipe for us.

Have a great day!

Outfits of the Week + What I Cooked for Supper (11/8 – 11/14)

Happy Saturday!

Thank you for your input on Intastories about continuing these outfits of the week posts. I’m glad they’re helpful to you!

I also asked about some content you’d like to see coming up, and I got several responses pertaining to recipes, meal planning, and grocery lists. As a result, I’m going to begin adding a weekly menu to these Saturday posts, too.

First up is what I wore this week. I’ve provided links when possible and found dupes for pieces that are old or out of stock.

dress / waffle cardigan / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

dress (sold out online from Old Navy – similar, similar) / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

flannel / jeans / booties

tunic (similar) / leggings / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

poncho sweater / jeans (similar) / flats (Time and Tru has a similar style – check local Walmart)

Other than date night, I cook supper most nights. Lately I’ve been trying to cook dishes that will have leftovers to take for lunch the next day. This week, I tried a new recipe, along with some of our tried-and-true favorites.

Main Courses + Sides

Tex-Mex Cauliflower Rice – This is a new recipe and turned out pretty good! It also made enough to have leftovers for lunch and supper the next day.

Sausage and peppers with brown rice – I discovered this dish back in the spring from one of my favorite bloggers: Caitlin Covington. It’s super easy, and even Isaac likes it!

Spaghetti, salad, crescent rolls – This is nothing fancy. I just brown ground beef and add it to Prego sauce, then dump it over noodles.

Sausage pizza, salad – This is the dough recipe I use. Pizza is always a great meal option because it can be customized to fit all taste buds in the household.

Dessert

We’re big dessert people at my house! I usually try to do at least one on the weekends.

Chocolate oatmeal cookies – These are quick and easy and pair perfectly with a glass of milk! I usually half the recipe for us because, although we would definitely eat the whole batch, that’s probably not the best option!

I did another blog post a few weeks ago with some more family-friendly meal ideas. Check it out here.

Have a great day!

Happy Halloween!

Thank you all so much for the love on my birthday yesterday! Daniel, Isaac, and I went to Tupelo, MS last night to celebrate. We had a lot of fun, but it’s also challenging trying to get a toddler to sit still these days!

What are your plans for tonight? I think we’re going to go trick-or-treating at a few family members’ houses. I’m glad that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year because we can start our visiting earlier and get home sooner, ha ha!

Here’s what I wore this week:

sweater dress / booties

leopard top (similar) / black jeggings / loafers (similar)

dress (similar) / denim jacket (similar) / nude loafers (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

Outfits of the Week (9/20-9/26)

Happy Saturday! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are enjoying your weekend.

Here’s a compilation of this week’s outfits. When possible, I linked the items I’m wearing. If something is old or sold out, I linked a similar piece.

leopard top – part of set (similar) / distressed jeans (similar styles) – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / sandals

leopard cardigan – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / peplum tank (similar) / black jeggings / flats

burgandy cardigan (similar) / blouse (similar, similar) / white jeggings / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

plaid button up (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store) / black jeggings – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / booties

sweater – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / striped dress (similar) / booties (similar)

top (similar) / jeans – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / booties (similar)

One thing you’ll notice is that, while I do buy new clothes, I also have certain pieces that are old, yet still functional. As a result, sometimes it’s hard to find the exact item. Additionally, I do shop at Walmart for clothes, and sometimes items are sold out online, but still available in the store, so I encourage you to always check there. I hope today’s post has been helpful!

Which of this week’s outfits is your favorite?
