Nom Nom’s

When David and I moved to Logan 4 months ago our income changed….like A LOT! Unfortunately for me I was making top dollar working in Salt Lake. Luckily David was able to keep his same salary but my income dropped almost in half. To say that our budget would need some tweeks would be an understatement. We’ve been working feverishly to get out of debt ever since we got married (almost 4 years ago, woot woot!). We’ve come a long way! I’m super grateful that those budgeting skills were already there because we were going to need them.

For us, food is a huge over spender. When we were living in Salt Lake and Logan at the same time we had two house holds and were driving back and forth constantly. Our food budget was insane. So, once we got settled we started working hard on meal planning and cooking at home. I’ve been wanting to share some of our favorite recipes with you guys. I know that Pinterest is LOADED with options, but these are some of our tried and true options. Rather than separating them all out, I’m going to include all of them here as well as links to some of our faves. You’re welcome to save the image, print, and add it to your collection. Hope you enjoy!
