    I went shopping on Monday morning – something I haven’t done a lot lately (I’ve gotten into the rhythm of shopping often on Saturday nights). I remembered why I was such a fan of shopping on weekday mornings … because there were so many great discounts on products !!

    I did a happy dance when I saw all these bananas and peppers!

    And look at all the meat!

    What we ate this week

    Many of you have asked me to tell you more about what we eat each week. Here’s a sneak peek at some of our meals this week …

    Monday night we used bread I had in the freezer (which I marked and frozen) + the boxes of cage free eggs I wrote down to make them …

    French toast! We served it with fruit on the side.

    The daily lunch (for me) consisted of salads with toast and butter.

    Tuesday night we had a double header baseball game for Silas so we had a quick and easy meal of meatballs (using the labeled ground beef and turkey I recently got and frozen) and raw peppers (as I got a ton of labels would have) !)

    I ate Energy Bites for breakfast some mornings. We also made scrambled eggs and blueberries and the kids had cereal or oatmeal most of the morning.

    Wednesday night we had barbecue chicken (barbecue sauce over frozen chicken breast in a crockpot), rice, raw peppers, and sourdough bread.

    Thursday night the three older children had leftovers and Jesse and I took the babies to a Foster Care Appreciation Dinner at the Church of the City (they had free childcare!)

    We had baseball again Friday night, so I made a toasted salad for dinner. Jesse got some fast food for the rest of the family.

    Saturday we had frozen pizza and vegetables. On Sunday we defended ourselves – that was leftovers and cereal! 🙂

    Was it helpful to have this overview of what we ate? Let me know – and if so, I’ll try more often!
