Menu Planning for September 22, 2018

Last week was another week of flying by the seat of our pants, but by the end of the week, I started feeling like we’re adjusting to our new normal.  In a few more weeks, I think we’ll have adapted just fine. Here’s what we had last week: Saturday Lunch:  Rotisserie chicken, broccoli, diced potatoes Dinner: Chipotle […]

Menu Planning for September 15, 2018

Last week was our first week of taking two kids to ABA therapy 25 hours a week.  I naively thought I’d be able to cook meals at night, but that didn’t really happen because each day was jam packed.  Instead, we relied on easy and slow cooker meals, and I think we’ll keep doing that […]

Menu Planning for September 8, 2018

Do you want to know a secret?  I don’t usually stick to my menu plan perfectly.  I write down the meals I’m planning to make, but I don’t always make them on the day I had planned to make them.  Sometimes, I don’t make them at all because plans change at the last minute.  Take […]

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

This week we tried some new recipes, and they were definitely winners!  The Paleo Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin made a yummy Easter meal, and I plan to make the Paleo Kung Pao Chicken again this upcoming week because it was so good!

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. Saturday Lunch–leftovers Dinner–Don’t remember! Sunday Lunch–Cold Noodles with Chicken & Veggies Dinner–Paleo Shepherd’s Pie Monday Lunch–chicken nuggets, […]
