Meal Planning, Grocery Shopping, and Epicure, Oh My!

I’m not sure about any of you, but I am finding myself wondering more and more – where the heck does the time go?!? It seems that my week flies by, and when the weekend comes, that flies by too! It’s really making me realize how important meal planning is for us in order to make our week run a little bit smoother.

This is what I have planned for our meals this week:

Sunday – Burgers, Burger Sauce, green salad
Monday – Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs, Wuhr’s Beach Rice Salad, steamed carrots
Tuesday – Out – I think Husband and I may actually have a date night. *faints*
Wednesday – Tortellini Casserole
Thursday – leftovers
Friday – Takeout
Saturday – Chicken souvlaki, greek salad

Now, I’ve gotta take a minute and talk about something I’ve recently ventured into, Epicure.

I’ve recently become an Independent Epicure Consultant, selling Epicure products. I decided to become a representative mostly because I LOVE Epicure products, and have for many years. A friend of mine had a party recently and I leaned then that Epicure’s products are not only delicious, but Epicure is a Canadian company, started by a woman in BC. Epicure’s products are REAL FOOD, keeping health consciousness in mind. They are all low or no sodium, gluten free, peanut and nut free, with nothing artificial added. They are quality products.

I’m also discovering that Epicure products are making my life and my meal planning much easier. There are several “bundles” of Epicure products that are themed to make meal prep easier: The Real Fast bundles include: Good Asian. Real Fast., Good Greek. Real Fast., Good Omelets. Real Fast., Good Burgers. Real Fast., Good Italian. Real Fast., Good Mexican. Real Fast., and Good Cocktails. Real Fast. I’m currently working my way through these products and enjoying all of what we’ve tried.

The Burger Sauce I’m making for our burgers tonight is part of the ‘Good Burgers. Real Fast.’ collection. It is so good (and completely addictive). You just mix the seasoning with mayonnaise, relish, and ketchup. Easy peasy.

I also made my husband a glorious chocolate cheesecake last weekend with the Epicure Chocolate Velvet Cheesecake Mix. I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t think that the mix would make as good a cheesecake as what I make from scratch. I was completely surprised to say that the Epicure cheesecake was delicious and didn’t disappoint in the least! In fact, it saved me a lot of time – the recipe was 6 ingredients and took about 10 minutes to put together. The finished product was creamy and smooth. Absolutely delicious.
