Hi everyone!  I have been absent for a few weeks and I'm sorry about that, I hope to do a better job of journaling my Meal Planning, mainly for myself, as it helps me to know exactly what I have and what I have spent.  David and I were on vacation last week for our anniversary and, even though my mom was here with Emily, they cleaned the house out!  We needed basics, staples... everything!  So, my bill this week was really high.  Also, I am no longer using the Farm Fresh To You CSA.  After several weeks of disappointment, I gave up giving them another chance.  I hope to find a more reliable, quality service in the near future but for now, I am purchasing my produce at our local grocery stores, buying Organic as much as I can.

  1. I am seriously impressed that not only do you hunt down all these items and find many of them on sale, but then you get home, unload, take photos and inventory the whole thing. And then cook. Bravo! Your husband and daughter are fortunate to have such an organized wife/mama!
