Fresh Cuts Friday- June 9

Can you feel it? Summer….I think it might finally be making an appearance. After a cool and wet spring, we are now just starting to get glimpses of a some pretty remarkable days and evenings. School events are winding down and people are lingering outside well into the evening. It’s pretty sweet. Now…what are you having for supper? 😉

I hate to break up the beach walks and sipping on ice tea, but at the end of the day, you still need to eat. It’s hard to be disciplined and meal plan this time of year, but who wants to be wasting time scrambling at the end of the day to figure out a meal. This might be the time when you need meal planning the most. Have no fear…Fresh Cuts Friday is here! 🙂

One quick trip into Fresh Cuts Market, shopping from their amazing sale list and I walked out with my meals planned for the next week. Such a relief to know I don’t have to think about it anymore!

Shout out to Brittany who’s always so helpful when I’m in shopping for Fresh Cuts Friday! 🙂

I am impressed each week over how little I am spending to feed my family meals with beef, chicken, fish etc, and lots fresh vegetables to go with it. With some meal planning around their Fresh Cuts Markets weekly specials, you can feed your family on a budget.

Besides saving money, I am loving how much time I am saving. I am usually in and out of the Market in about 20 minutes…and some of that time is making sure I have everything for Fresh Cuts Friday, chatting up the guys and gals in the meat department, etc…but still! So great to be finished with the task of shopping in such short order.

I hope you’re surviving June alright…it’s a crazy month for some. Use this week’s meal plan and then at least that job is done. Have a great weekend and week!
