Grocery Guide

Hi old friends!!

Sunday mornings are one of my favorite times of the week.

Our lives have been so busy lately, so my usual routine has been thrown off - but this week, hallelujah!, things have slowed down a little bit.  Today, I was able to wake up and have some of the quiet time I have been craving.

Typically, on a Sunday morning, I will let me "boys" (aka, my husband and our dog Hank) sleep in.

Most Sundays, I will make us breakfast (bacon, eggs, toast).  We like to make our bacon in the oven, so while my coffee is brewing, I will get the bacon going, then sit down with my coffee in front of my computer and try to figure out our meal plan/grocery list for the week.

I am constantly struggling, especially lately, to figure out what to make for dinner during the week.  I have to guess that some of you who are reading this are also wracking your brain on Sunday mornings, over your cup (or two, if you're like me) of coffee, coming up with quick and relatively healthy dinner ideas.

It's been a LONG time since I've visited this little blog space of mine, but I thought today I might share with you what I have come up with for this week! Woo hoo...exciting stuff, I know! :)


Shredded BBQ Pork
Green Beans

I'm going to head off to the grocery store soon to pick up the pork so I can get this in the slow cooker for tonight! So yummy and so easy.


Cajun Turkey Burger Skillet

This is probably not the healthiest of meals, but is cheap, easy and a favorite at our house...I will be able to get this made up quickly so I can sit down to watch the Bachelorette :)



We have our dog trainers coming over on Tuesday night, so we will have to eat quickly - either leftover pulled pork or turkey burger skillet will be on the menu for Tuesday night.


BBQ Pork Quesadillas

I am hoping to go play tennis on Wednesday night, so again, dinner will have to be fast.  I love to use Flat Out wraps for quesadillas - just put down some leftover pulled pork, a little salsa and cheese, fold in half and grill on a skillet.  So simple!


Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads

Justin loves Caesar Salads - I will get a couple of pre-marinaded chicken breasts to grill up, then toss with romaine, croutons, shredded Parmesan cheese, and my favorite Bolthouse Farms yogurt Caesar dressing.


Buffalo Bleu Cheese Burgers

Friday night we will stay in and take advantage of Justin's new grill.  I will make up the patties (see the link for the method to my madness!), and he takes care of the rest!

If you can't tell, buying the grill for his birthday was a genius idea over here because it gets my husband to help with some of the cooking :)

So there you have it! Our meal plan for the week - and what I will be using as my grocery guide. Now it's off to the store to get the goods.

Have a fantastic Sunday!



P.S.  I know it has been forever since I have blogged! I am contemplating starting it back up again.  Let me know what kinds of things you would like to see :)


  1. I made cool food as it is 90 degrees. Tuna with hard boiled eggs, egg salad with curry and plain salad. I guess hot dogs for main.
