Why I Created Living the Simple Country Life Meal Plan

I have always enjoyed cooking for my family, but I hated trying to come up with meals. I would spend countless searching for recipes to make and hope that I had the ingredients needed.

I would overspend at the grocery store, filling my cupboards with food items that had no meal or purpose.

I got sick of doing things this way, so I decided to start planning my meals monthly. I make one big grocery run at the beginning of each month with only a few quick trips in between for perishables.

Now, I save between $100-$200 per month and I never have to throw unused food away. My stress level has gone down, and my free time has gone up. I have not looked back!

I want to take away the stress of planning meals, and help you save money!
-Make Weeknight Dinners Less Chaotic
-Spend More Time with Your Family

With a monthly meal plan, you never have to wonder what to make for dinner again!

Grocery shopping is faster and easier with pre-made grocery lists that fit your lifestyle.

My family-friendly recipes are sure to be a crowd pleaser even with those picky little ones.

Cheesy Taco Pasta

I love to cook but with work and being busy at least 5 days a week quick and delicious meals are what I prefer and Cheesy Taco Pasta is a family favorite in this house. Each member of the family adds their own extras to it to please everyone.

This dish is my nod to the hamburger helper I grew up eating as a kid. While this isn’t exactly the “crunchy taco hamburger helper” because I skipped adding the tortilla chips on top, the ooey gooey meat and cheese sauce is still the same and with just a few ingredients!

Additional note: You can also freeze this pasta for a later date. I’d skip adding the cheese and when you defrost it, use a cup of chicken or beef stock. Then once warmed through add the cheese, mix and serve.

Like I mentioned above each family member adds their own twist to this dish. The different add ons include the following:
Extra Cheese
Crunchy Tortilla Chips
Sour Cream




  • 1 pound box of any brand Rotini noodles
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 packet of any brand taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cans condensed tomato soup
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese



  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the box and drain.
  2. Brown the ground beef in pan and then drain well.
  3. Add the taco seasoning and 1/2 cup of water, stir.
  4. Add in the pasta and tomato soup, stir to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, add in your extra favorites as desired.


Cheesy Taco Pasta is easy to make and tastes like the Hamburger Helper you used to eat as a kid except better. Much better.

Follow Me on the Journey, called Life

Since my early 20's I have loved reading blogs. Watching makeup & hair tutorials was a normal everyday routine for me. Thru the years my love for them continued, whether it be about motherhood, family life or cleaning blogs, I always thought it would be such an exciting thing to pursue. But thought to myself "What is so interesting about my life, that people would want to read about?" And to me that is the thing about it, you put yourself out there to the world, your raw, imperfect life. Yes, it would be terrifying but the thought of connecting with so many others that have the same interest, lives, or even struggles would be so empowering. Plus it would be a great way to release and let go some thoughts along the way. How cool would it be in 5 years to look back on everything you had dealt with, accomplished, overcome?

So after immense thought, I decided to go for it! Oh man just rereading that last line gives me Goosebumps and such excitement at the same time! So here is to the beginning of this exciting yet terrifying journey.
