Last week's new recipes, the sausage and spinach pasta and the maple glazed chicken were successes in this house. Again, I love this website. Having said that, none of this week's meals are from that website. I went through my fridge and freezer today and found enough food already there to plan a week's worth of meals. Plus, there were some good sales on pasta and chicken breasts at Food Basics this week, which i stocked up on for the next few weeks. AND, not that you care, but they also had cream cheese for $1.50/brick, which was an awesome find for me :)
I spent $62 on groceries today. Pretty darn proud of that. Not sure I have enough snack type foods to last the whole week, but i did some baking tonight and may do some more later in the week to help out with that. And I have to get some veggies for Friday's stirfry still, as I decided on that after I got home from shopping.

Also, as a COMPLETE aside, but kind of food related: Makenna has a little friend who has a lot of food allergies. So when she comes over to play we have to be careful about what we give her for a snack. The little friend is coming over tomorrow, and this evening, Makenna said "I wish I could be _____". I said "really? I kind of like when you are Makenna. Why do you want to be ______?" and she says "So i could be allergic to all those things, and she could eat whatever she wanted".
Love that kid :)
