Cooking Day

Sundays are pretty lame in terms of food, since we're out of just about everything by Saturday night.

Breakfast is mainly nuts and fruit (for the kids) and maybe some cheese.

Then we head to Mass (only I was at home with a very irritable baby).

After Mass... well, we still haven't gotten into a routine after going Primal. Today Tom picked up Chipotle meals for him and me. And he brought home beef and broccoli for the kids since they aren't fans of Chipotle.

Then I went grocery shopping. Woohoo. I got lots of stuff to make pot roast, chicken soup, squash soup, pork ribs, hamburgers, pork chops, and carne asada. Some fruits, some nuts, milk, eggs, and lots of vegetables. My grocery bill was $303.47, which comes to about $7.22 per person/ per day.

Our kitchen sink has been leaking for a few days so doing dishes has been very difficult. This is not helpful when cooking a week's worth of meals, let me tell you. Also, our hot water heater went out (again) so it's been a barrel of laughs around here.

There I was chopping vegetables, searing meat, and boiling soups while the plumber sat on my kitchen floor fixing the sink.  Fun times.

Dinner was turkey and raw vegetables with olive oil. And then a few squares of dark chocolate. Yum yum.

Right now I'm waiting for the potroast and the soups to cool off so I can store them in the fridge.

By the way, when you make pot roast, do NOT forget to put the broth in the pot before you stick it in the oven. It's not good. Not good at all. D'oh.

My feet hurt. And I have to fold laundry.


  1. I know someone mentioned a co-op, so I will also just put in a plug for Bountiful Baskets. They have a drop off every other week in Topeka at the YMCA. The prices are decent for organic produce and you don't have to buy in when you don't want to.

  2. Your feet hurt? I noticed you have started walking. I started a walking regime that I was so in love with a few years ago and then BAM got struck with plantars fasciitis. You and I have so many things in common, but I'm hoping this isn't one of them. Google it and see if you have the symptoms. I wouldn't normally comment this, but with PF the sooner you deal with it, the quicker you can fix it. Hope you ain't got it! And way too go! I'm loving catching up on your blog!!
