Grocery Shopping for Our Family of 5

We are a family of five living on one income. My husband’s income has to cover basically everything, rent, heating and lighting bills, vehicle payments, and of course food. I’m lucky enough and frugal enough, that sponsored posts and freelancing covers birthday and Christmas presents.

Blueberry Muffins

Healthy anything is better than unhealthy anything, right? And if it taste great then that’s even better. These blueberry muffins are scrumptious, perfect for breakfast or as a snack.

I made these one morning while the house was cool inside, and then I made them again the next morning, doubling the batch, despite the heat in the house. To say these were a hit would be an understatement.

Beginner Books for Kids

I love reading, picking up a book, dividing into another world. I enjoy all types of books both fiction, non-fiction. I want my children to have a love of reading as I do. They love looking a books, step one! Going to the library for us is like going to the candy store without the tummy ache later.

As my oldest is learning to read I’ve learned that the early readers aren’t necessarily early readers. Some books that I loved as a child, and my children love, are perfect for learning to read however, and just might help your early reader get on the right track.

Nova Scotia Food

The other night my five year old requested fish for supper. So off to the store we went for a box of High Liner’s Haddock. Along with a bag of french fries in the freezer supper for the kids and I were planned, Hubby was on his own as an anti-fish eater.

During supper we started talking about the food we missed from back home. Including real, fresh fish. Oh God, fresh fish, I’m talking fresh off the boat that not too many get to experience.
