But that is not the point of this blog post.
My long winded story was just an introduction to SOUP WEEK!
Mr. R. and I have been struggling the prepare healthy meals during the week. Last week I ended up stopping at Publix almost every day after work buying ingredients for that night's dinner. Those little shopping trips eat into my workout time and cost me more money in the long run. Our weekly grocery budget was beyond blown and we weren't actually sitting down to eat dinner until almost 8 PM. That just doesn't work for me. So today I pulled out the soup pot, the slow cookers, and the ziploc tupperware.
And I can proudly say SOUPS ON!
