It will be so nice not to have to worry about making a nice comforting dinner and wrangling a new born. I have been thinking about prepping meals for a while now but every time I thought about, coming up with a menu, then spending a bunch of money all at once, then bringing all those groceries home and cooking a bazillion meals all at once….

Now once or twice a week I will buy enough ingredients to make 2 or 3 batches of one of the meals, that one we can eat one for dinner and I can put the extra one or two in the freezer for later.

The Inside Scoop On Dog Food

We first brought home our tiny bulldog puppy, determined to do everything exactly right. Starting with her food. So we bought her the most expensive dry food in the store and were sure we were making the right decision. Then life kicked in and we couldn’t afford to spend as much on her food. Now it was time to do some research and decide what would be the second best. Turns out after doing some digging, even the crazy expensive dog food wasn’t necessarily what was best for her.
