If I didn't know what I was going to make we probably would have ended up having just sandwiches or frozen pizza, yuck! We got lots of running around to do this week, so hopefully our menu plan will save us time again.

I'm also adding the average per person to see how I can feed my family of 4 (soon to be 5) for SUPER CHEAP, nearly FREE!! If you have any questions, just let me know!

Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.
