Confession: the past 2 weeks, we have been eating peanut butter. I bought 2 of the huge jars of natural, no-sugar, no added oils peanut butter from Costco when I was feeling too cheap for almond butter, and they have lasted a bit. We had 2 buckets of apples from a friend, so apples and pb has been an easy snack for the kids. Once my littlest one starts preschool next month, though, he can only take sun butter, no nuts allowed.
I made the lemon raspberry swirl muffins from Juli's latest book today. Sugar? Yes. Delicious? Yes. Closest thing to a Tastycake I've had in a long time. :)

I spent $73 at Aldi this weekend and $73 at Costco. Weird. And $15 at Price Chopper. So around $160 which I try to make my weekly average, but don't always succeed. (Last week was way low at $110, but we also went out to eat some.)
Here's the plan for this week.
eggs, salsa, avocados (most of the week)
pumpkin waffles (a day or two) or might try the newer recipe from her cookbook
turkey sausage & sweet potato hash* (dinner leftovers)

salami or balsamic drumsticks
chipotle deviled eggs (adults)
veggies & ranch
cookies or fudge babies (kids)
My husband commented that we haven't had any leftovers lately for him to take to work. So I'm going to try to make bigger meals this week - so we have more leftovers!
Sunday - burgers, salad and dressing, potatoes
Monday - sausage & sweet potato hash (save leftovers for breakfast)
Tuesday - garbage stir fry (ground beef + bag of coleslaw mix)
Wednesday - meatballs, roasted green beans, salad
Thursday - school event
Friday - BBQ chicken primal pizza (make your own or grab one of these and pile with toppings)
That's it. Have a good week, everyone!
