    Weekly Menu || Vol.006

    I almost didn’t make it today with my list.  I was distracted all of yesterday and plain busy today with unexpected errands.  But I needed to make a list, even if I can’t make it to the store for shopping tonight like I usually do, because if I didn’t, it would make tomorrow that more exhausting.

    Weekly Menu || Vol. 003

    Once in awhile I like to share what we eat.  It’s something we all have to do and sometimes, when we are trying to think of something to make for dinner, it’s nice to have ideas thrown out there for us to use.  We live on a very tight grocery budget so our meals are usually simple and kid friendly. Dinners: Oven fried chicken w/ roasted brussel sprouts and steamed carrots Chicken Fajitas w/ tex mex rice Meatloaf w/ pan seared green beans and onions Spaghetti w/ garlic bread and side salad Turkey burgers on whole wheat buns w/ baked fries Turkey BLT w/ baked pasta crackers Breakfast & Lunch…
