Pay day was yesterday, so that means I get the *joys* of paying mortgage, bills and going grocery shopping. Oh how I loathe all of those, but mostly grocery shopping. My goodness, is it ever exhausting! I don't know what it is about it but it seems like it just sucks the life out of me and by the time I get home I am beyond tired. I don't even want to put groceries away or cook dinner. *Sigh*

When I do my shopping I plan out all our meals for the next 2 weeks for myself, my husband and my son. I plan our breakfasts, lunch, dinners and snacks for the little one. Here is what we will be eating for the next few weeks with as many recipes I can link to. If there's a recipe you're interested in and it's not available online, let me know and I will do my best to get it to you. Sometimes I just cook without a recipe. :)

  2. Hello! I'm your newest follower from Military Wives at MBC. Nice to meet you! HOpe you can visit me soon.


  3. Hi, just found your blog from Mama Yarn Diva's. What gives with that group? I joined and commented on a few forums but then nothing else was done on that group till you joined.

    Anyway i am following your blog and I look forward to seeing your knitting project.

  4. Cute Blog! I need to plan out my shopping better too!

  5. such a cute blog meshell! it's great to be organized and to plan out your food that way when you go to the store you actually buy what you "need" not a bunch of this and that! :) look forward to following the journey!

  6. Hi! Visiting via MBC. Love your blog.

  7. Thanks for visiting ladies! I will definitely be checking out all of your blogs as well. :) I think having a meal plan is the only thing that keeps me cooking dinner and not running to a local restaurant. I actually know what I have on hand.

  8. We tried the fajita ranch wraps the other night and OMG they are amazing. I've been eating the left overs for lunch every day this week!!!

  9. The fajita wraps are pretty good. I liked them and they were so easy! The ham & rotini pasta is delicious too. Definitely worth trying.
