April Showers

We woke up this morning to some serious spring rain. Good thing we enjoyed the sun this weekend while we could. We even got to have a meal al fresco! Saturday Jason and I went to a new-to-us location of Noche, which is well known for their delicious margaritas.

We had a lot of other errands to do over the weekend, so I pushed my grocery trip to today. It’s so much easier going on Mondays because the stores are empty! Even more empty today because of the crazy rain. Which made it a great trip! I managed to come in at just $65 for the whole week, which is better than I’ve done in a really long time. I’ve learned that not everything is cheapest at my farmers market, but it is still by far the best place for produce. It’s also the only place I can fine certified humane eggs for a good price.

I sure do miss that employee discount at Trader Joe’s, but I still love to go for certain deals and for unique items. And for flowers. The spring bouquets are out now!

Here’s our meal plan for the week:

Monday: greek yogurt mac and cheese, garlic green beans, spelt rolls, herb marinated pork tenderloin for Jason

Tuesday: mexican pizzas

Wednesday: tofu katsu and chicken katsu, japanese fried rice, spinach

Thursday: soba noodle salad for me, slow cooker beef and broccoli for Jason

Friday: night out

Hope you’re having a beautiful start to your week!
