Meal planning is a great way to save money on groceries and you won't be standing in front of the fridge at 4pm, wondering what to make!

Happy Sunday! It's a long weekend here in Ontario, due to tomorrow being Family Day. Family day always brings mixed emotions for me. On one hand, I'm happy to have an extra day off, for the weekend, but on the other hand I'm peeved at Hubby having to work. That's right, Hubby has to work on Family Day. Which really makes me question this whole new holiday the government created. If it's Family Day, then businesses should be closed, so that all families can enjoy the day off together. Not only those who work Monday- Friday. The kids and I will enjoy an extra day to relax regardless. We just wish we could be doing it as a whole family.
This week is a short school week, which is always welcome in my book. Especially with the temperatures dipping below -30 degrees C, with the wind chill (that's about -28/29 degrees F). The poor kids have to stayed cooped up in school all day, with no recess. It makes them a little squirrely when they get home, LOL. We do have a few appointments this week and I am hoping to have a date night with Hubby, since he had to work on Valentine's day. I didn't really follow my meal plan last week, so I'll be bringing most recipes over this week and sticking to it. Here is the plan for the week
- Family Favourite Roast Chicken with purple potatoes and cauliflower
- Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers (new recipe)
- Crock pot meatballs and sauce with Spaghetti Squash
- Vegetable Chowder (new recipe)
- chicken pot pie with Low Carb crust (new recipe)
