The past 2 days I have been non-stop planning… Even in my sleep. I hate when I do that. Yesterday morning started out with full birthday party planning. The twins’ 5th birthday is in 2 weeks and I haven’t even thought too much about a party, so I got the bug yesterday morning and put a full game plan together (theme, decor, menu, cupcakes, and game) in 2 hrs! Pretty dang good if I say so.
Then it was on to April meal planning. This one took most of the day. Blah! This next month and a half is going to be pure survival. With soccer taking up pretty much every evening, garden work, and a few days of work a week I wanted most of my menu to be quick. Yesterday I got my recipes together, shopping list, and planned my prep. This morning I took stock of the kitchen and got my coupons loaded on my Safeway card. Then with one little man in tow (don’t know how I swung that), we were off to do some major bank account depletion…
This wasn’t even all of it! There were 5 bags on the floor. Why do you always run out of everything at once? I was out of 6 spices this morning. Unheard of. Grocery bill: $225.
Breakfast: cherries with kefir and a fried egg.
Lunch: Larabar & kevita (grabbed both while shopping)
The kevita was better than I expected it to be. I’m not a big fan of coconut water. It seems like it is going to be full flavor and bam.. nothing! But the kevita was pretty good.
Dinner: BBQ pulled venison on paleo tortillas topped with homemade guacamole
Freaking delicious! …I’m a little obsessed with my kefir ranch lately as well.
I got a bit of prepping done when I got home today. Fruit and veggies cleaned and bagged, broccoli blanched and put in the freezer, and chicken sperated (i buy it in bulk). Tomorrow is the start of my 2 day cook off. By Sunday evening a month of meals will be tucked happily in my freezer!! Bring on Sunday.
