Hello Everyone!

First of all, let me just say that I am beyond excited that The Feel Good Foodie Facebook page is only 12 “likes” away from it’s September 1st goal of 100 “likes”! That is so amazing! Thank you so much to all the fellow foodies (and wannabe foodies) out there who are supporting this journey. I can’t wait to see where we’ll be a year from now! You guys are awesome…so, thank you!

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty:

My husband is out of town this week for business. This is a big time bummer for JBird and I…but it also means I don’t have to cook. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love cooking with a fiery passion but every good chef needs a break from time to time. I’m currently all out of “thinkin’ juice” and can hardly put a bowl of cereal together correctly these days (Guess who used the expired almond milk on her cereal yesterday? Me! The bigger question is WHY did I not throw away the expired almond milk sooner? I knew it had gone bad…I just couldn’t seem to part with it…serves me right).

I didn’t even go grocery shopping this week. I literally plan on only eating things that we already have in the pantry, fridge or freezer. Which of course means aged cheddar and wheat thins for at least 2 dinners this week…possibly 3. (Actually, not going grocery shopping this week is in response to the obscene amount of money I spent on groceries in July. When we calculated all the receipts up at the end of the month…my jaw hit the floor and I threw up a little in my mouth…it was THAT bad).

This week off from cooking is also in preparation to NEXT week; when we’ll have out of town guests here for the week and I’ll need to be on my A-Game in meal preparations and delicious dinner ideas. The heat is on.

Since I won’t be posting recipes this week I’ve decided to dedicate this week in Feel Good Foodie Land to tips on meal planning, grocery shopping, ┬ásticking to a budget, and maybe a post on all the random things I eat while my husband is out of town (Miso soup and cinnamon shredded wheat = todays lunch!) .

And for your viewing pleasure:

Doesn’t this photo just crack you up?! It’s a corkscrew I found a Target. I think I’m going to have to go back and buy it. Too Funny!
