Grocery List, Reading List, Pinterest List

Hi Readers!  I haven't had much time to cook since the weekend and have been enjoying a lot of sweet potato chili leftovers on top of extra brown rice during the week, so no new recipes today, unfortunately.  I also haven't had too much time to go grocery shopping in over two weeks other than stopping in at the store to buy the can't-live-withouts (apples, bananas, lettuce, potatoes, and onions).  I have this great app on my iPhone (one of the only ones that I actually paid money for, haha), called "Buy Me a Pie" (find it in the app store here) that helps me to remember all of the things that I am running out of and what I have gotten at the grocery store in the past.  I'm waiting till Saturday afternoon to do my big grocery shopping after I pick up my Bountiful Basket, but I thought I would share with you what is on my list this week to show you what items I regularly have on hand:

I thought I would also share with you some things I have been reading lately from some of my favorite blogs and news websites:

Check out this delicious looking Kale and Cabbage Pad Thai Salad at Eating Bird Food.

Look at all of the simple meals that can be made without a recipe to follow that include a grain/potato, bean, vegetable, and spices and sauces of your liking at Engine 2's Daily Beet.
