MEAL PLANNING

Weekly Meal Plan: April 15th-21st

We’re trying out meal planning on Saturday this week again instead of Sunday. We did most of our shopping yesterday (Friday) and we actually filmed all of it because yesterday we did our first vlog! We hit up Costco, Superstore, Bulk Barn and Tomavo. It was a lot of stops but it was worth it – we saved money and reduced the amount of plastic we purchased!

This week is particularly difficult, so despite our grocery list, we may be splurging a bit on extra food. The reason being that this week is the anniversary of a young family member’s passing. We would love to be able to spend this time with our family in Cape Breton and Halifax, but unfortunately it’s just not possible due to circumstances out of our control. We have this idea to celebrate this person’s life by organizing an event in our home in Moncton next Saturday, but nothing is organized yet. Therefor, none of the food that we would be serving at this event has been put on our weekly meal plan, nor on our grocery list.

For now, this is what we have planned, just our regular 7 meals for the week. After receiving comments about our last recipe post, we’re looking forward to taking some photos of another meal this week. Let us know which of these meals you’d like to make yourself!
