Family Friendly Food Week: Coming Soon!
One of the things I really (like, really) struggle with is meal planning, saving on groceries, and serving new dishes. T works a lot--long hours, the majority of the week. That means I am home alone with the girls for dinners most nights. My desire is to raise kids who are willing to try new things and eat healthy foods.
I do pretty good with offering healthy choices for the kids. The girls do fine with vegetables, fruits, fiber, protein, etc. etc. But they pretty much stick to a few standard meals, and I think we are all over it. I also want T and I to do a better job for ourselves...and that's where the planning comes in. I think that making wise food choices takes some planning.
Family Friendly Food Week will hopefully be something that all of my readers can learn something from. I don't think you have to be a mom or dad to work on meal planning or consider couponing to save money on groceries.
I'm hoping that on September 19th (8 am ET), you'll stop by to link up a food-related post: Meal plans, tips to start meal planning, a comfort food recipe, dessert, crock pot recipe, healthy snack ideas, couponing strategies, pantry organizing tips, you name it! If it's something you think would help another reader out in the kitchen, please add it to the party.
The Rules for the link party will be:
1. Link back to the party within your post (because--I'm being real here--it's a lot of work to put on a blog party and traffic should be reciprocal) and
2. Visit some of the other links at the party to promote a good blogging atmosphere. This should be about sharing ideas and encouraging one another!
I have some great guest posts lined up, and a fun Giveaway too! Joining the link party will even earn you an extra entry, so come prepared to show off your stuff!
Here's the code for the button if you'd like to put it on your sidebar somewhere:
So...whatcha got cookin'?
