Seize the Week on Monday

Monday.... We meet again. 

Last week was a BUST for me. I fell behind on housework, homework and blogging. 
Shockingly my family stayed fed and happy, so I suppose I should count that as breaking even and cut my losses (mostly sanity and sleep, right?

Anyways, here I am...trying to find a way to write about motivation on the LEAST motivating day pretty much EVER! Last night, I told myself that today was going to be awesome and that I would start to catch up on life. 

Good news! I am actually beginning to catch up on things and at 9:00 am I have actually accomplished quite a bit (bedding in two rooms, vacuum the main floor, clean the carpets in one of the three rooms on the main floor, sweep and dust the main floor). Oh, and I made breakfast for my family and did dishes too! Eff. Yes! Monday, I might get the best of you! 

I am determined to carry out all of my daily to do items this week and stay caught up! It will happen if I will it to, right? 

Here is to hoping that next Monday I have something really motivating to share with you, rather than the struggle to survive a Monday.

Roasted Red Potatoes

It is Tasty Tuesday here on the blog and I am going to share one of my go to side dishes with you!
We eat really healthy for the most part in our house, and I like to eat a lot of the same things because I like to prep my meals in big batches rather than cook every day. 
J doesn't like to eat the same thing all the time, and he surely doesn't like sweet potatoes as much as me, so these roasted red potatoes have become a staple side dish here. 
Oh, and they are EASY to make!

Red Potatoes
Mrs Dash (flavor of choice)
Olive Oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 and cube potatoes
2. Put in gallon size bag (or a bowl if you like doing dishes)
3. Add 1-2 TBSP of Olive Oil
4. Add Mrs. Dash to taste. Shake bag until everything looks evenly coated.
5. Line a cookie sheet with foil (makes dishes easier), put potatoes on foil evenly.
6. Cook for 45-60 minutes depending on your oven!
