Sounds like a yummy week! The spagetthi broccoli bake sounds good…and sounds like it could be a GFCF meal…?

Can’t wait to hear about the broccoli bake! :)

I’m new to your blog but I wanted to tell you how much I love it. I’ve never been into coupon clipping etc until recently. With the economy in a mess, I’ve been doing my part to reduce costs and cut back on extra items. I’ve been doing much more cooking from scratch and found I enjoy it. I’ve even found myself getting so excited when I save some money. It’s almost like a sense of adventure. I don’t have little children but just my hubby and me. But I love how you’re so organized with meal planning and share tips with us on saving big bucks. I really appreciate your help and will be visiting on a regular basis. I even have my crockpot going with our dinner. :)
