Did you all have a great weekend? We sure did! We went to Kings Island- again. But we need to make good use of these season passes!
I had a blast shopping at Kroger this weekend, thanks to Cinco de Mayo specials! I loaded up my freezer with tortillas and my cupboard with salsa, so we’re all set for awhile. We had to buy sunscreen, which took $10 out of our grocery budget so I couldn’t stock up as much as I wanted to. But next week at Meijer frozen vegetables are $1.00, as well as whole wheat pasta. And I need to go to Sam’s to buy more essentials- like string cheese, PBFit powder, and maybe yogurt- so maybe look forward to some pantry meals next week!
Let’s talk lunches for your kids for a minute. Do you do anything special as far as lunches go, or will they eat dinner leftovers? Allison won’t eat leftovers because she won’t even eat my dinner; so I make sure she gets a healthy-ish lunch of food that I know she’ll eat. I’m experimenting with homemade Lunchables this week because she on-and-off again likes deli meat, so follow me on Instagram for pictures and updates!
