Tonight I went grocery shopping.

I don’t do grocery shopping.

When I grocery shop I get chips, salsa and that’s about it.

Aaron does the “real” grocery shopping in our family!  He plans the meals in our family.  He cooks in our family.  I know HE IS AMAZING!  Well he’s not here today, so I had to step up to the plate and do our grocery shopping.  I also had two cute little boys with me!

After I got home and unloaded the groceries I called Aaron and told him that I would never ever ask him to take both boys to the grocery store again!

I found two new favorite things today that I want to tell you about.

#1 = Sugar Free brownies – I was very hesitant about these, but thought I’d give it a shot.  They are not bad.  They are a little “cakey”, but they will still give me that chocolate sweet treat at night after the kids have gone to bed and not all the sugar!

#2 = Santa Barbara Salsa in the flavor of …. Chipotle-Pineapple ….. yummy!  I’m loving this tonight with my chips.

So those were my two favorite new finds for today!

Here’s what I’m making this week ….
