I promised to be honest, so honest shall I be.
Today was rough. I feel like I don't have enough food and food choices-and I feel like what I have is boring!! My grocery list for this week wasn't very good and I have found ingredients that I overlooked-this equals not being able to make a recipe!!! The kids have done a lot of complaining about this healthy food too which after awhile gets....well friends, it just gets frustrating.
As to not sound like a grouch, I did decide that for next week I am going to stick to easy recipes, and I am going to look at our old favorite foods and see what I can do to tweak them. There is no reason why I can't make my own chicken pesto which is a big hit!! I also need to figure out better snack choices. Nothing fancy, but maybe make double batches of things like muffins so those could be a choice too?
I did have to go BACK to Sam's again!!! See what I mean about the bad grocery list (that is NOT like me!!). I purchased chicken, apples, sweet potatoes, honey, and mixed veggies for $38. I'm not sure what my total expenditures are as of now, but I do know that these multiple trips to the store need to stop. Note-I will be sitting down and making an extensive list which is broken down into exact needs for each day/meal/snack!!!!!
Here is what we ate yesterday:
Breakfast - Zucchini muffins/bread and strawberry/banana/pineapple smoothies (the muffins looked really weird, BUT the kids ate them!!)
Lunch - Cold veggies, sandwiches, left over berries
Dinner - Grilled chicken, salad, carrots, berries
**I need to make an easy salad dressing and make a version of the dill dip-those made the veggies VERY enticing.
