Bad, bad, Meal Planning Mama....

I know. I am bad. But I'm real real sorry, I promise. You see we kinda went away for 4 days and stayed for 8....It was super cool. Kinda like me. :)

When we got home my BFF, her practice hubby (aka the roomie) and the mini were on our door step and starving. So MPM apologized, and made food....(actually Practice Hubby bought lunch but meh, who's counting :)

So this week will bring you the first of many clean out the cupboards/freezer/fridge meals until we hit the lovely month of September, I'll explain more later....wish me luck! Photobucket
