    Please update us on how the mac-and-cheese is/recipe! I’ve been on a quest to find my go-to mac recipe that both my boyfriend and I love, and haven’t been successful so far. 😀 The rest of your menu looks delicious, too!

    Great menu planning! It always saves money when you plan – even if I stop by the store for ONE thing, the next thing I know my arms are full!

    Looking forward to your recipes!

    Sounds like a delicious week. I have also been inspired to watch the grocery budget. I need to plan for the week like you as that would totally help.

    Can’t wait to see how some of your recipes turn out. Vegan mac & cheese…yum!

    How did the veg mac and cheese go? My 4 year old loves pasta and is slowly refusing to eat any meat at all.
