Groceries + Recipes to Try

Well, I did not drive all over this past week like I had mentioned I might.  Thank goodness my husband talked some sense into me.  Plus I ended up not having the free time I thought I would.  So, I just made-do and made a mid-week stop at Aldi.  I spent $57 on groceries for us, and $10 on stuff for church.

We ate out 3 times this past week, which is unusual for us!  2 times we ate with friends and one time I took the kids to Chipotle.  We got corn tacos with no rice or beans and with guacamole added.  I had never had those before.  I kind of wish I had ordered a salad.  I did that one time: I just got lettuce, chicken, pico de gallo, and guacamole, so it was paleo and it was quite good.  The lady added extra chicken when she heard I didn't want rice or beans on it, which was nice.  The tacos weren't shabby, though.  The kids dumped out the filling and ate it and then rolled up the tortillas separately.  Each of the 3 dinners out (tailgating, Chipotle patio, birthday party) were eaten outside which was beautiful!

...And, these are some recipes I have pinned on Pinterest that I want to try sometime:
Paleo Blackberry Bars (I have got to get to Whole Foods for some dried coconut asap!)
Basic Vinaigrette for Salads (Similar to the dressing I love, just less herb-y I am betting.)
Roasted (or Grilled) Cabbage (I'm guessing this is either love or hate, kind of like brussels sprouts.)

Hope you are having a good weekend!
