    I’ve tried several of your recipes and have yet to be disappointed. I’m making Paleo Pad Thai for the first time tonight. Both my fiancé and I are pretty excited about it!

    Just wanted to add – the above pic w/pug face in the sack… my dog totally does that when I come home from the store too! She always thinks there’s something in there for her & then proceeds to try & walk away with the bags or pull stuff out. I bought a throw blanket for her last night, which I let her tear into that bag, turn around & find she’s pulled the cupcake throw I bought for myself out of the other bag! LOL Gotta love dogs!

    Wow, you are on top of things! I always have good intentions when it comes to planning ahead for dinners, but then the day comes and I don’t want what I planned for that day!

    My dogs love groceries too, they always nose around in the bags.

    That’s usually how my grocery shopping works out – one week over, the next week under. As long as it approximately evens out in the end, I’m happy. :-D

    When you say “almond flour” do you mean almond meal or do you have a flour in the US?

    Ok you just gave me the biggest craving for a BLT! But I don’t have bacon… or lettuce. :P

    I love the pug in the bag! I can’t even get in the door with grocery bags until they are thoroughly inspected by my doggies. So cute!!

    I never budget my shopping trips…that includes any shopping trip for that matter. (I kept typing clothing instead of shopping…see! Guilty subconscious)

    Can’t wait to see the potato recipe!
