Easter dinner
It was an absolutely beautiful weekend in our neck of the woods.  The snow was almost completely melted by Sunday.

With the weather so nice we decided to enjoy it by taking the dogs to the State Park for a walk.  Apparently Emerson's been spending too much time on the couch this winter because about halfway through our walk Oliver started running in circles trying to get him to chase him and Emerson laid down.  Right there in the middle of the walk.  He was finished.  I picked him up and carried him a little ways then coaxed him to finish.  He slept like a baby for the next few hours.

Sunday we loaded the boys up again, but this time to go to my mom's house for Easter dinner, and poor Emerson started shaking.  I think he thought he was going for another of those walks.  When we pulled into my mom's driveway you could almost see the sense of relief wash across his face.  At Grandma's house you get to lick the mashed potato beaters and eat cookies.  No walking necessary!

The coop girls had such a great time this weekend.  Our egg production is up to about a dozen a day.  A couple of the younger girls' legs are still bright yellow so I'm not so convinced they're laying yet.  {once they start laying consistently their leg color turns to a very light yellow}  We also believe a couple of the older girls may have thrown in the egg laying towel and have retired.

Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!

For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 7

February 11, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
