What’s Cooking – April 6-April 12

What’s Cooking – April 6-April 12

April is turning out to be a pretty busy month. We have my birthday, our six-month wedding anniversary, M’s birthday, and a trip out of town. And that’s all in the next two weeks! Quick and easy meals are going to be key to keep me sane, which, sadly means the Culinary Challenge will againContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – March 30 – April 5

Five Saturdays in March hit our grocery budget hard. We’re going to get back on track in April, for sure. Since we’re eating healthier and M is bringing lunch at least twice a week, it’s become really, really hard to shop for under $80. We’re teetering around $115/week, so I’m going to try and getContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – March 22-March 29

M is on his way back! I can’t wait. I’ll be back to my regular cooking routine this week after a nice week long break and not having to worry about dinner until dinnertime. I’m hoping Spring makes an appearance this week because I am craving light, fresh meals. Here’s what I’m cooking: Sunday: ChickenContinue Reading

Tonight is “Irish Night” in our house. It’s this week’s Culinary Challenge and it couldn’t have come at a better time. As I mentioned last week, M has a business trip. Well, flights finally dropped enough that I’ll be able to travel with him for the first part of the trip, but it means we’llContinue Reading

What’s Cooking: March 2-March 8

Bring on March! I wish I could say we have some fantastic plans lined up this month, but we don’t. M has a week-long work trip (groan) and since it’s in Atlanta, he’s going to extend the trip a few more days to see family and friends. I’m trying to find a cheap flight toContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – February 23-March 1

This year is flying. I can’t believe next weekend is already March. We’re doing okay on our grocery spending — a total of $268 for the month, so we’re averaging about $90/week. Not bad, considering I’ve been able to rebuild much of our stockpile (especially the freezer). M has been doing an okay job notContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – February 16-23

I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine’s Day! M and I celebrated Austin’s second birthday (tear) by completely spoiling him. He had steak for dinner, a birthday cookie and a few treats from our local dog store. We can’t wait to let him dig into them, especially the cheese wrapped bully stick. Oh my. IContinue Reading

I can’t believe the first week of February has already come and gone! Today, M and I are heading to Fredrick for the day and having brunch at VOLT (finally!). This is actually the third time I’ve had a reservation there, but the first time I’ll get to go. The first time, without me knowing,Continue Reading

Working It Out and What’s Cooking – February 1-8

Working It Out and What’s Cooking – February 1-8

That’s a wrap folks. January is officially one for the books. My goal for this month was to eat more out of the pantry and to spend less then $80/week at the grocery store. Success! I went $1 over this past week, but since I had to buy olive oil and vegetable oil ($13 total),Continue Reading

What’s Cooking – January 26-February 1

It’s the last week of January, and therefore the last week of the Pantry Challenge! I couldn’t be happier with our spending, even with a few indiscretions throughout the month (like the $16!! I spent at Whole Foods on ingredients for quesadillas. I’m not usually a “whole paycheck” hater, but come on). My grocery spendingContinue Reading
