Menu Plan Monday 3/26/12

This week, I decided to try to include a few meatless meals. The prices of meat are out of this world, and I can’t seem to adjust to the new normal for them. A good sale price to me used to be under $1.99/lb for ground beef. Now it’s apparently $2.69 or above. That puts …

Whatever Wednesday

I kind of hate my job. In saying that, I also want to acknowledge that I’m very grateful for the job I have. I work with fabulous co-workers who are super supportive, but the work itself starts to take a toll on you.
