The other day I was making my husband a vegetarian wrap for work, and I decided that he should have a salad to go with it. I ended up coming up with this Blueberry Ricotta Salad.
This salad was inspired by the ingredients I had on hand that morning, which happened to be blueberries, almonds, coconut flakes, ricotta cheese, and lettuce. I also made a simple vinaigrette to go with it.
Here’s a scenario you may face if you don’t meal plan: you get home from work and there aren’t enough leftovers in the fridge for you and your family. You look at the groceries in your kitchen and pantry and try to concoct something for dinner.
The first couple of recipes you think of, you are missing some vital ingredients. You debate on going out to eat, but don’t want to spend the money. You consider running to the store to pick up some missing items, but you don’t want to take the time. In the meantime, it’s getting closer to supper-time. Has this ever happened to you?
Whether you are single or providing for a family, having a budget is important, because it will help you save money. Your budget doesn’t necessarily need to be written down, (although it’s certainly good to do so,) but it is important to know what your expenses and needs are to be able to streamline your actual income the right way.
However, it can be overwhelmingly stressful if your income is less that what your budget realistically needs to be.
So you’ve had your positive pregnancy test. There’s so much that will happen in the next 8 months-give or take- depending on when you found out. Yes, that’s right. By the time you realize you’re pregnant, you have likely already used one or more of those nine months up!
This recipe was a happy accident. My husband had asked me to make my double chocolate strawberry cookies that I had made before, and they ended turning into double chocolate raspberry cookies instead.
