  1. I did really well with meal planning for the past few weeks but I’m winging it tonight. I need to get back on that horse, make a plan for this week!

  2. How much pasta do you make? What do you do when all your kids want more than one dish? When I make spaghetti and meatballs, my youngest will have four big bowls of spaghetti, a couple of pieces of sausage, about 5 meatballs, salad and garlic bread. He’s thin and eats a lot. All my kids are thin and eat a lot.

      I make about three standard sized packages of spaghetti for our family. My kids eat a lot as well, so thankfully pasta is a great filler.

  3. I can’t edit my comment, but I put my email address where my name was supposed to go. Yikes.
