Meals - August 3-9, Changes with the new site

Welcome to my new site. I have imported all my posts with pictures from the previous site. When I make the recipes on the FoodieCrystal site and have pictures I will add them here as well.

I realized last Thursday that my site name for FoodieCrystal was not really what I wanted my blog to portray. I am not a "Foodie" in the strict sense of the word as it is used today. I do love good food, but not all the recipes I'm going to post will be Foodie type recipes. I also want my site to feel like coming home and having a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. I want it to be more of a discussion between you and me.

Going along with the discussion between you and me, I'm going to have weekly polls. I decided that with life being hectic right now (my husband is finishing a Master's degree and we're looking for jobs), I simply do not have time to post every recipe that I make each week. So Monday's we're going to have a poll to see which recipes will be posted on Wednesday. The polls will close Tuesday evening and the recipe will be posted Wednesday - probably in the afternoon.

Another new thing with this site is that I will have occasional posts on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday will be desserts. I figured since I really love making desserts, I should have a day devoted to that. They are not going to be every week because I don't need that much dessert in my life (I'm still trying to lose those extra pounds from pregnancy). Thursday will be a hodgepoge of things - lunch and snack ideas, as well as answering any questions you may have posted in the comments or emailed me if I think everybody will benefit from the questions.

I hope that you enjoy this new site, I think it is much more what I want it to be.

So this past week, here's what we had:

Basil-Lemon Pork Loin Chops

Barbecued Chicken Tortilla Pizzas

Grilled Ham and Cheese

Fettuccine Alfredo with salad and chicken

We had dinner with some friends - thanks Heather and Logan.

Spaghetti and Meatballs (Meatballs and sauce were pre-made and I just pulled them out of the freezer, so will not be included in the poll)

Ham and cheese omelets


  1. Your menu sounds so good, but especially your meal for Monday! Will you be posting the recipe?

  2. I agree, the pork chops sound yummy! That's what I voted for!


I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment below. Because I want this space on the internet to be a happy space, any rude or degrading comments will not be published.
