**Grocery Shopping**

I've always hated grocery shopping, but I'm hating it even more because it's taking me twice as long to shop since we are cooking all of our meals now, instead of eating out! We were at the store for almost 2 hours today!! It took so long because I was having to stock up on things we didn't have since I have never cooked on a regular basis. So, we loaded up on all kinds of spices, oils, beans, - lots of stuff!

It's been a little stressful for me trying to plan out meals because I want them to taste good, but be healthy, too. I think, I'm doing pretty good since no one has refused to eat anything that I've made! I've always hated cooking, but I'm starting to enjoy it a little bit - maybe because I know I'm doing something good for my family.

Tomorrow night we're trying Sweet Potato Burritos! I can't wait to see how they turn out!


  1. Hello! Thank you for your comment on my blog - I look forward to reading more about your journey! ♥ I never liked grocery shopping too, but I found it got faster when I started planning meals. I first make a list of everything I intend to cook that week, then a list of things I need to buy in order to make that happen. If it's not on the list, I don't buy it - that also helps me avoid junk!

  2. I agree, making a list did keep me from buying junk food. I was a mission to buy, exactly, what I needed, so I didn't even have time to think about junk food.....well, I did notice the cookies, but I just kept on walking!:)
