Menu Planning for August 19, 2018

Last week, PB & J Girl suddenly dropped with a cold (my kids don’t just get colds–they vomit and can’t eat for a day or two), so we changed the menu plan a bit.  As a result, I didn’t make all of my meals, so they’re appearing again this week. Plus, I’m trying to set […]

Menu Planning for August 12, 2018

Last week, I couldn’t make two of my meals because I didn’t have carrots in the house.  Those meals are on the menu plan again this week. One of the nights when I didn’t have a meal planned because of my lack of carrots, I searched and found a recipe for turkey chili using ingredients […]

Menu Plan for August 5, 2018

Imagine this.  I made a menu plan last week, and I stuck to it.  Taking 30 minutes over the weekend to do that saved me so much time during the week. Of course, I know this because I’ve been a menu planner for years, but when you let it drop and then pick up menu […]

Menu Planning for July 29, 2018

I haven’t menu planned for at least a month now; instead I’ve just been winging it (never a good idea), and my grocery spending shows it.  So, this week, I’m back to menu planning. I did a complete freezer and pantry inventory, and I found that I don’t need to buy much at the store […]

What We Ate, April 1 – 7, 2018

What We Ate, March 4 – 10, 2018

Another busy week!  We’ve kept our grocery budget fairly low this month (for us, I know others go much lower), but we’re still eating good food.  This is what we ate this week: This post contains affiliate links.

What We Ate, February 25 – March 3, 2018

All three kids came down with colds this week, so their appetites were kind of sluggish.  We had a lot of simple foods like grilled cheese and open face tuna salad sandwiches because that’s all they wanted to eat. Sunday Lunch–Fried Rice Dinner–Cod with celery and carrots, veggies, brown rice Monday Lunch–hot dogs, leftover fried […]

What We Ate, February 10 – 16, 2018

This week I felt like I was always running behind.  I made a menu plan, but I kind of forgot that we couldn’t eat meat on Wednesday or Friday this week, so that threw a wrench in things.  Also, I’m still adjusting to being on a soft food diet, so I needed to make some […]

What I Ate in a Day on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program

One of the reasons I decided to join Weight Watchers again is because I needed accountability but also because I felt the new Freestyle program would work for my lifestyle.  I eat mostly Paleo, which means I eat lots of fruits and veggies and meat.  I didn’t want to have to count the fruits.  Last […]
