What’s For Dinner!

This post is sponsored by Blue Apron.

Happy Friday, friends!  Feels good to be back at it.  So much to tell you about in this new stage of life, but today’s focus is – food!  It sounds really silly, but one of the hardest things that I’ve had to figure out now with a new baby is how to feed both myself, and my family!

Taking three kids to the grocery store is 100% not happening.  And honestly, even taking the baby to the grocery store kind of sucks.  I don’t like to haul her in and out of her infant seat a ton, but if I leave her in the seat and put it in the cart, then there is no room for groceries.  Once she’s old enough to sit directly in the seat of the cart, I’m sure it will feel easier!  But for now, we are operating on CONVENIENCE mode at all times.

Right now I’m getting pretty much all of our groceries online.  I do the pickup point closest to our house, and I can just order and pick up when I need two hours later.  The prices are good, the convenience is unmatched, and no one has to get out of the car.  But it does mean that I’m not getting a ton of inspiration for cooking by walking through the grocery store.  So our meals are reaaaaally basic and boring right now.
