I don’t know about you, but I feel like the new year (last time I mention it I promisssssse) is really just starting today. I’ve been spoiled by having David around so much the last couple of weeks and today brings back a real work week. I’m so grateful that he had some time to hang around here and we made sure to spend our time together wisely. You know, by driving an hour to go to a RV show and all.
Long live the Ergo!
So today brings back reality, but at least that pesky tooth that Kaitlyn has been fighting with finally popped through yesterday. In her defense, it did look incredibly painful, but luckily a little gnawing on a carrot finally helped it make its way through. And not surprisingly, she slept like a dream last night.
But the real focus of what I’m sharing today is my return to meal planning! I really missed it and am thrilled to have this week’s meals laid out and grocery shopping complete.
So what’s on the menu? A few new ones to try…
Stuffed pepper soup (tried it last night and it was very good, though David and I preferred to add some spice after Hailey ate her share)
I hit up Whole Foods early Sunday morning and discovered that is the perfect time to shop.
With a nearly empty store I was able to move my way through at an impressive speed, maintaining enough extra time to hit up the breakfast hot bar. How they make sautéed vegetables delicious enough to eat for breakfast is beyond me, but YUM.
Total grocery cost: $162.43 including the hot bar food. I feel pretty good about that total, considering a large majority of items purchased were organic. I stand by my claim that I can shop for cheaper at Whole Foods than Harris Teeter, but that’s a post for another day.
David and I are on a mission to reach peak physical condition (orrrrr maybe just to feel more fit) in 2015 and a stocked fridge definitely helps.
And with that, let the week begin!
What’s on your menu this week?
Do you have any food/healthy eating related goals for 2015?
