What We Ate for the Week of November 17, 2018

Our plan for reducing our grocery bill worked with this menu, but my husband wasn’t pleased with all of the potatoes we ate this week.  😉  What can I say?  Organic potatoes were on sale for Thanksgiving $1.99 for 5 pounds, so I bought two bags.

What We Ate, February 1 – 9, 2018

My baby, who is really not a baby anymore, will turn one this week, and she has suddenly decided she wants to only eat finger foods.  Enough with the mashed up goo she has been eating.  So, this week I went on the hunt for kid friendly recipes she can eat.  (And hopefully they will […]
