1/3 Less Challenge Check-In Report #1

This is the first of 4 check-ins for the 1/3 Less Challenge. Leaving a comment on this post WILL enter you in the $50 Visa gift card giveaway.

I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am done with cold and dreary weather or that there have been lots of things going on in our house lately, but my motivation in the kitchen has definitely been lacking lately. So this challenge has come at the perfect time for me.

This first week, I’ve spent some time on spending 1/3 LESS time in the kitchen actively preparing meals and working to have 1/3 LESS wasted food. Both have gone very well. We’ve had some really good meals this week that did not involve much prep time at all. And our fridge isn’t overflowing with forgotten leftovers, except for one small helping of mashed potatoes. I’ll take that as a success!

I’ll have a few more recipes designed to get you out of the kitchen in 1/3 Less time next week. Until then though, I have three recipes from other bloggers that I need to share. These look SO good to me and they’ll definitely get you (and me!) out of the kitchen in a hurry.

Jessie from Vanderbilt Wife left two great recipes in the comments earlier this week. The first, Feta Pasta, really speaks to me. This is the kind of food I Love, with a capital L! And the second recipe…

Tilapia with Honey-Tangerine Sauce. YUM!!

I am in love with this offering from my friend Amy –

Taco Sandwich. Seriously, how good does that look?
