We arrived home from our wonderful vacation to an empty fridge (which I had left empty on purpose) and a busy week. I've been stretching the hours to find enough time to buy school supplies and clothes, get back-to-school haircuts, and get a large grocery shop done.
Here's my grocery list and dinner meal plan for the week. You'll notice a few shortcuts- not just carrots, but also matchstick carrots. Frozen pastry for the tourtiere, and bottled salad dressing. We already have enough meat and fish for the week in our freezer, so most of my shopping was re-stocking up on fresh fruit, vegetables, and dairy. After eating out a lot while on vacation I am most certainly happy to be back cooking in my kitchen. No more fast food! While I think my boys would happily eat hamburgers or chicken fingers and fries every day, I don't think i could have taken much more of that type of fare.
I've got a lot of photos to cull, and some stories to tell. I'm working on getting that done and have a draft post started and saved to share with you. I hope your summer was warm and wonderful, and I look forward to enjoying fall with you.
What's on your meal plan for the week?
All the best, friends.
