Baking With the Ladies+ Sunday’s Trip to the Market

The long anticipated day hasn’t been so long, it’s actually flying by! I only have 6 girls for childcare, and we have been BLASTING Disney Radio and baking in the kitchen Smile


The girls love kneading! LOL


Yesterday Hubby and I at down and went through our cupboards and fridge to see what groceries we needed for the week. After I got a nice list I decided to give Fresh and Easy one more try.

I spent: $15 Dollars at Fresh & Easy on Food and $20 at Von’s, a total of $35 on food this week. We still have chicken and tofu left from last week, so that’s why are bill was so low.

Today I enjoyed my last two homemade black bean burgers, with a salad, an apple, kiwi, hummus, and ww pita.


I can’t wait until we finish our homemade bread it smell’s divineheart


Question of the day:

If you had the whole day to your self where would you spend that day?

awww, i love that pic of the girls!
what an amazing grocery haul with excellent deals!! i'm a master bargainer, and i'm so impressed :-)

if i had a whole day to spend to myself, i'd plan it so it fell on a hot summer day complete with access to a gorgeous sparkling beach with blue ocean waves, and i'd spend the whole time napping on a towel in the sand (with loads of sunscreen of course). sigh ...

That bread looks so good! If I had a whole day to myself I would spend it on the beach!!

technically I had vacation today and spent it with the dentist and my PT. :)

Lacey Nicole said...

i would go to a quiet spot on the ocean and sit outside! i'd bring a lunch and some drink i like and books and a blanket,... i would also go to the library, a farmer's market, and walk around preferably with a dog:)

Matt said...

I'd spend the morning running and the rest of the day with my family!

Denise said...

Some times on my day off, I like to spend it at home in the peace and quiet. Taking my time drinking my coffee, reading, napping with the kitties. Life is too hectic, I welcome any chance to slow down a bit!

I would spend all day AT THE BEACH! I CANNOT wait until summer so I can take a nice bike ride to the beach and chill out...I know a place that doesn't even get cell phone service...Pure joy!

Black Bean Burgers have become my favorite meal this week! So delicious and easy...

Question, what brand of running skirt do you recommend?

Sara said...

That bread looks great!

One of the girls in the pics looks like one of the twins from Jon & Kate plus 8 :) Looks like you had a good time!

If I had an entire day, I would spend it at home with my hubby and my dogs. Probably outside, but just hanging out and relaxing!! Or maybe we would go to the mall or something...I doubt I could relax for an entire day :)

Marianne said...

I definitely could get all that food for $35 where I live. Nice haul!

Pearl said...
