I guess you have figuerd out by now that I love chocolate, cool whip, and pumpkin. Now, we’ll get to add another favorite to my list of foods I love… sweet potatoes!

Not only are they good for you, but they are dirt cheap this week at my local grocery store, which is another thing I love about them. So, be prepared for lots of sweet-potato recipes.

Also, I found an awesome new menu planning website called Onceamonthmom.com.

They have meals you cook in bulk, then separate into individual portions, freeze them, and you can use them all month! Cook once– eat all month long. You’ve got to love that!

I’ll mark any meals I’m trying from their site with an asterisk (*). They have a diet menu that has nutritional info and Weight Watchers points, which is always very helpful!

Have a great week!
