Menu Planning This Week and Next

Since we are heading West in less than 2 weeks, I’m dancing the fine line between frugality and making sure there’s enough – but not too much – food in the house. I don’t want to waste money on things we won’t eat before we leave. I’m a little sad to see the cupboards become […]
