Our new washing machine was delivered this week.  Woo hoo!  It was, of course, not without a tad bit of drama but, thankfully, it's here.  I've realized that the convenience of doing laundry in your own home is something easily taken for granted.

The temps this weekend are quite lovely!  We've enjoyed 30's and sunshine.  It is so much easier to get out and get things done.  I believe it's because of the nice weather we had a wonderful day of sales at the Farmer's Market today.  The last few weeks have been a bit slow, but today was right back to busy-ness.

The Coop Girls are enjoying the warmer temps too and are in full production.  We are averaging 8-11 eggs per day.  They have been getting a ton of praise and goodies for all the yummy gifts.

We took it a bit easy this weekend, including making time for massage therapy Saturday afternoon.  On a whim I sent J a text on Thursday asking him if he was up for a massage.  Crazy that I even asked.....of course he was!!  So I made the appointment.  J made sure I knew what a great idea I'd had as we were leaving.  I told him I come up with a good idea or two from time to time.

The rest of the day we moved a bit slower than usual.  It was well worth it though.  Now is the time to enjoy a slower pace since it's still our off-season.  Once Spring arrives there will be no time.

This coming week will be a busy week of making salves, balms, deodorant and lotion since we sold out of much of our stock today.

On the menu this week:
Oven Fried Chicken with Baked Mac & Cheese and Broccoli; Baked Cod with Smashed Baby Red Potatoes and Honey-Butter Carrots; Beef Fajitas with Cilantro Sauce; Tortellini with Chicken and Mushroom Sauce; Chicken Enchiladas with Mexican Rice and Corn.

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend!

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...

February 13, 2018

If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year.

I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...

$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...
