the food

feeding this family stresses me out. it just does.
i want to feed them WELL and healthy. i want to stick to our budget (that, as of january 1, is stricter and tighter.) and i want it to be yummy. it's an impossible task. but, every week, every day, many times a day, i try my best to do it well.

and now we're heading into baseball season, so it will be TONS of sandwiches and quesadillas.

on fridays i always have a "fun" snack...because most days i encourage a "healthy" snack after school. usually i make something. but this past friday, i had nothing. so it was a $2 package of packaged cookies. they didn't really like them (!!) i've spoiled them i guess. they still managed to stuff them down ;-)

FOOD: my grocery budget, shopping for food, preparing food, cleaning up from food prep, having two gf people in our family, me trying to eat Paleo. UGH! Drives. Me. Crazy! I think my kids are spoiled, too. When I try do shortcuts, they don't like it because I do enjoy cooking good food. They don't realize how good they have it!

You do an AMAZING job Courtney! You have variety and always do a homemade meal. You always have. It's impressive these days to for people to do that.
