What a BEAUTIFUL weekend!!  Today was absolutely amazing.  Although the morning started out a bit crazy, as every Sunday does for us, the sun was out, we had upper 50's for the temps, and the snow is quickly melting away.  How could it get better?

Our Saturday started at the local coffee shop, Uncommon Grounds, where the young man who helped me was too worried about getting the girl before me's phone number, that his mind was completely absent.  He kept apologizing and I kept repeating my order.  I told him I truly hoped it all worked out and he was taken aback by my kindness.  We've all been there - smitten and forgetful.  We had decided on breakfast sandwiches and latte's to get ready for the day.  After they had to re-make one of the sandwiches, due to the young man's wandering mind, we were now ready to run errands.  All day.  Where in the world does the day go when you're running around??  Wonderful little out-of-season strawberries were one item that made it's way home with us.  They've been enjoyed both plain and dipped it a bit of chocolate.  Delicious.  Saturday night was full of wrapping soap and making deodorant for today's farmer's market.

It was just a perfect day for a Spring market.  The sunshine brought out cheerful laughter and relaxed shopping.  After the market we took the boys to the park.  They were pretty surprised and happy about that.  The park was loaded with families and a whole lot of dogs for Oliver and Emerson to check out.  It is because of this that tonight they are genuinely exhausted.

The previous week was busy with work and writing.  And making a couple of wedding orders.  The grill has begun to be used again, we have raked the yard {around the still remaining snow piles} and next weekend I'm hoping to start prepping the garden beds.  If the temps remain nice, they should be un-thawed.  Ahhh....April.  The Coop Girls have started their own garden prep by digging for worms and other yummy bugs as the top layers begin to loosen up.  They will happily tell you about all the treasures they've found if you stop by for a visit.

Hoping you also had a lovely weekend!!

On the menu this week:  Clambake on the Grill; Teriyaki Flank Steak with Rice and Green Beans; BBQ Chicken Breast with Roasted Potatoes and Squash; Chicken Florentine with Rice; Burgers with Salad and Potato Wedges.

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 8

February 19, 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...

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018

1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...
