Craving greenery around here, so here is a picture from July in West Virginia.

  1. The pizza bread salad is such an interesting dish and sounds yummy! I found you through Organizing Junkie and I totally agree with your grocery shopping method. I like to plan my meals with fresh produce and lean meats to get the most nutrition. I have a site, http://www.coupon-kitchen.com where I base my meals plans around the produce and meat on sale. I may spend more than your average couponer but I feel like I’m getting the most out of my money!

  2. I thought it was funny that you listed vegetarian corndogs and hamburgers….then hot dogs. It made me feel better about our usual lunch choices.

  3. Great menu! The pizza salad looks interesting. 🙂 I will have to try that for sure. Thanks for linking up at Family Time Tuesday!

  4. Thanks for the menu ideas. I am a soon to be stay-at-home mom and your blog has so many ideas for planning. And I will be using paper plates to help cut down on dishes!
