Our day begins…

With doughnuts when we go to the doctor. Let me share that first, we get our FB off to school, head to the glass store to pick up glass, stop in at Menards to get my company’s repair guy started for the day, THEN we finally get on the road. Needless to say patience has worn thin in the back seat as Lily screams to me, “When are we getting doughnuts? Doughnuts, doughnuts, doughnuts!”

“Our next stop, on our way now.”

“Where? Where? I want doughnuts”

“At the bakery, we are getting doughnuts now”

Push repeat until we arrive, where everyone turns to smiles and they begin to bang on the glass case screaming and pointing, “this one, no this one!” I just smile and order. Thanking my lucky stars there is more than one bakery on this long stretch to the doctor’s office. Because the first one we passed was CLOSED…and you know someone would have eaten the other if the kids could read yet.


I caved…

and am trying to rationalize trying one of those meal delivery boxes.  I got a promo code in my zulily box to try Hello Fresh.  The card had a REALLY happy family with a toddler helping mommy & daddy making a meal.  BTW, mommy & daddy looked like they were both 19.  So just a suggestion- let’s work on how we pick our models.

I have a hunch I will probably try it once, because the cost of 1 box for a family of 4 WITH a discount is 3-4 times what I normally spend at the grocery store at 2 meals for 4 people @ $79.95.  Luckily, I got a coupon- otherwise I’d never try it.  Regardless of the convenience.  Plus, my kids currently hate everything that isn’t the color white/cream/yellowy. However, no judgments until I’ve tried it.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Any other of these out there that are any cheaper?  With a comparison Blue Apron was slightly less at $69.92 for two meals a week.

We’ll see how this go, and I can almost guarantee unless instructions are idiot proof it probably won’t look below.  I’ll let you know what I find.

My menu is:

Crispy Onion Burgers

Caramelized Onion Burgers
