If you are wanting to pick just a few of these recipes…
go with the Chicken and Dumplings..Pulled Pork..and Lasagna. they are our favorites!
Our Picky eater, Sienna, LOVES the cheesy chicken and rice.. and we all LOVE the chicken and dumplings. I just pulled that out to make up tomorrow night. :)
so Aldi’s was closed and I did my shopping at Giant Eagle.
I think I could have spent a lot less shopping at Aldi’s or with coupons.
This time though…..I spent $68.00 for 17 meals…
equaling out to $4.00 per meal for my family.
(The lasagna bag gives 2 meals of lasagna with extra meat sauce for a pasta meal!)
My new routine is to pull out a frozen bag and put in fridge the
night before (at bed or when I’m finishing up dinner) so that it is thawed and ready to go the next day. You could put plenty of these in frozen…it would just take longer to cook obviously.
As far as leftovers with these meals… I love that you can use the pulled pork another day for tacos.. and change up the extra lasagna meat sauce with a different type of pasta. You could divide up even more the soup or the cheesy chicken potatoes if you add more potatoes.
happy to share what we did!
If I can do it, a mama with babies at her feet and in her arms, so can you!
I’m excited to put this new system into work at our house.
Sophie kept asking me what I was doing…
I told her I was cooking all day so that later in
the week I could play instead of cook!
She was all about that idea. I think she cheered. ;)

Who needs a studio when you have a dining room……haha.
Christine and her hubby, Thomas, came over in the afternoon. While the boys entertained themselves Christine and I threw together a Beef Stew (a version off of the pioneer woman’s recipe) and then once that was going, we started working on the photo shoot!
During the course of the Photo Shoot sophia was bribed with
2 cupcakes (only the icing)
1 lollipop (a few licks…it was too pretty to eat. :)
and 3 mini chocolate candies….
do i win the mama of the year award or what?
she was lovingggggggggg the posing and smiling. while i was still putting together dinner I saw her hamming it up in a practice run with Christine. a diva has been created. uh oh. ;)
we took some coloring breaks. love the tippy-toes.
