I think I’m done with all this snow now!
Two weekends in a row we’ve been hit with a snowstorm. This weekend was a mixture of rain, ice, and, snow which was totally nuts! I did all my grocery shopping on Friday along with everyone else; and judging from what I bought, I think we’re good for quite awhile.
Today is day 12 of our 21-day Daniel Fast, so this week is still a strict vegan menu. Next week will be a mixture of both and then will return to my regular menu!
I’m actually pretty amazed at how much I can buy. I mean, I pretty much filled my cart with vegetables at Aldi and the total came to only $55. Eating vegan can be pretty cheap if you’re smart!
