Monday again? Really? That was fast!
I meant to post this earlier today. Ah well, better late than never!
A few notes about this week’s meal plan:
You might notice a few small changes to my “usuals”. This is due to my recent commitment to making some healthier choices.
"ww" bread stands for whole wheat
Dennis has been complaining about our weekly veggie burgers lately. I think he’s feeling tired of them. So for this week, we’re switching to salmon burgers. Shaking things up!
I’ll be making a ginormous pot of chili this week. Some for dinner on Thursday and some to freeze. 
Henry has been eating so much food lately! I’ve decided that it’s time to start accommodating for his meals in my budget. Up until now, I’ve just been pureeing our “extras” for him (this child will eat anything!) but going forward, I will be buying portions specifically for him as well.
My shopping list is larger than usual! It overflowed the “Grocery List” column and I had to write some of it in the “Notes” column. To make it easier to see what’s what, I made the shopping list a beautiful lavender color for your viewing pleasure. You are welcome!
The jam that I’ve noted in the Grocery List is actually for a cooking project I’m doing at Maya’s preschool on Thursday. Notably, we are just fine in the jam department at home.
Another busy week ahead and I’m loving every minute of it. I get to wake up every morning in my dream home, in the middle of the coolest city in the world, and I get to cook, bake, clean, organize and hang out with my sweet babies all day? Man, I’m so lucky. It really doesn’t get any better than this.
