Yep, it’s that time again; Monday, time to go back to work, and do work things.
Sunday morning I woke up at 7 absolutely starving. I got up, made coffee, then laid in bed, watching TV for a little while longer. I was hoping the TV would wake Chris up.. That’s mean, isn’t it? He is the weekend breakfast maker, and like I said, I was hungry! I was out of bagels, and he told me Saturday night he would make some pancakes! He finally rolled out of bed at 8 and made us some breakfast – by then even baby P was starving!
I spent the rest of the morning making my grocery list, coloring my hair & getting ready to go to town to pick out paint colors & go grocery shopping.
Moving on to the real point of this post; Instead of browsing pinterest for hours on end, I went right to the Clean Eating Magazine website and found a few new recipes that would be budget & time friendly. The last three recipes came from Clean Eating Magazine.

We stopped at the produce stand and I got 2 tomatoes, 2 zucchini & 1 red onion for $4.
I spent about $71 on groceries this week. Not to shabby.
The price of chicken has gone up in our area (or maybe Florida in general); along with gas prices.. but that’s another complaint. The last two weeks it’s been $4.59/lb, which is up by about $1.10/lb. It’s been a month or so since I’ve bought chicken, but I was talking to some friends today and they commented about the price of chicken going up.
So I’m curious, how much is boneless/skinless chicken breast in your area. Has the price gone up? Is there something happening that I don’t know about? Should I become a vegetarian? JUST KIDDING. I love steak and shrimp to much..and sushi, and… well, meat.
Happy Monday, Friends!
