My first HELLO!

Hello world of the BLOGS!!!

My name is Squishy. Well, obviously it's not Squishy- but that's the name my Husband calls me.. you know, from Finding Nemo? I shall call you Squishy and you will be mine?

ANYWAYS, I am here to write things to you.... so you can in turn, read them.

Actually, the main reason behind this blog is because it's 2013.. and I have a resolution. That's right... a RESOLUTION I INTEND TO KEEP.

I want to change my diet.
Currently, I work in an environment where I am out of the office all. day. long. I miss lunch often, and days where I DO have time to eat- I eat out. It's just so much more convenient. As we all know, our wallets don't appreciate this. SO in order to make peace with my finances, and to help put me back on a track of getting healthy.. and maybe lose a few pounds here or there... I DECIDED to set up this blog.

Here's the thing. I am not a chef. I have a hard time creating recipes from scratch.... so I will be posting REVIEWS of recipes.. and then maybe, just maybe.. I will get bold enough to make my own.
Oh.. and just to make you smile- here is a cute picture of an elephant. His name is Frank. He looks like a frank, doesn't he?

So here is what I am going to do...........

Suspenseful, yeah?

Last Sunday, I spent a few hours in the kitchen preparing some FROZEN CROCK POT MEALS from two AMAZING blogs.

Six Sisters and The Sweaty Betties

My goal is to, every other Sunday, prep frozen Crock Pot Meals for myself and my husband, as well as prep lunches for the week. I will be compiling a list of recipes I find from the internet, or things I come up with- as well as my own shopping list and suggestions. I'll review them as I go along as well!

The idea is to save time, and money! Also, avoid being tired and not wanting to cook when I get home. This GUARANTEES we eat here, at the Squishy household. 

I will also be posting lunch ideas in case I come across something SPECTACULAR. For now, I am thinking I will be packing easy sammys to save the time.. but we will see.
My freezer full of 14 crock pot meals
