Today’s a big day. Why, you ask? Because this grocery post can now be found in VIDEO FORM!
That’s right, I’m diving into the world of Youtube. Video is definitely where it’s at, and it’s actually much easier to talk about what I bought and why I bought it when I’m on video. So for the moment, I’m doing both a post AND a video. Let me know what you think!
Also, in case you missed it- I released another video on Friday that showcased all of Allison’s lunches from the week. If you need inspiration on how to fill your child’s lunch box, make sure you watch the video!
The Fall weather is finally here; and as you can tell from all the pumpkin recipes I’m making, I’m already basking in its glory. Going out for a run in the 50-ish degree weather was AMAZING!
I had a few impulse purchases this weekend. Part of it was because they looked good; and part of it was because Allison said she wanted to try new things. The three main ones were:
- Frozen fish
- Frozen chicken nuggets
- Brownie batter hummus
The fish and chicken she tried Friday night. The chicken was a hit (She ate like 14 nuggets) but the fish was just so-so. I haven’t even told her about the hummus yet, so let’s hope she gets some before I eat the whole thing.
Here’s what I bought this week. Make sure you watch the video too for extra details!
