Meal Plan Monday Post

Patrick and I returned home last Sunday from our last holiday family visit just in time for a Monday night Bachelor premiere and the beginning of a New Year. After a decadent holiday season we jumped back into the kitchen this week and cooked every single night (with the exception of a weekend dinner where we celebrated a friend's birthday). The first three recipes we made were out of "Clean Slate: a cookbook and guide" which focuses on clean eating with whole-food plant-based recipes. We loved them all and will be sharing those on the blog soon. Then there were some snackier dinners and some we were trying again.

Grocery shopping at the start of the week included lots of fruits and vegetables!

  1. Grocery card looks pretty! Love all the colors in there.

  2. All big companies get multiple quotes for big projects to pit the contractor companies against each-other and compete for the job. This will result in the best price for you and the best service provider will shine through. Find the best pressure washing services from Aquapower Clean

  3. If you look out for one of their amazing sales, you might be in luck. During the sale, you can buy rugs from HomeLooks at terrific discounts.
