Shopping for my large family can be an extreme task. On any given week our weekly shopping list of household needs and grocery items can easily be two pages long. I have to admit right off the bat that I love to shop. Even with that being said, I value my time spent doing it and more so have to keep a close eye out not to go over budget. This is why I enjoy shopping at Wal-Mart.

The beauty of a Wal-Mart shopping center is that everything you can imagine and more is all under one roof. I can not only grab all the necessary ingredients to create our weekly menu but also snag a movie for Friday night, shorts for the kids this summer, pain reliever for those overbearing mommy moments, pull-ups for Mr. E as well as score amazing deals on my paper and cleaning products. I also breathe easier know that the products found on Wal-Mart shelves are priced competitively. In fact they do price matching as well {hint, hint on keeping that budget in check}.

With summer right around the corner, my meal mind-frame begins to change to lighter dishes, fruity flavors and grilled meats. This means changing out a few of our keep on hand necessities. One of those changes you will see around our table this time of year, is the addition of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spray. Seriously fire-grilled corn is just not the same without it! Add a little salt and pepper and geez, make your mouth water delicious.

Okay, don’t say boring just yet. I will be challenging my cooking skills this summer with a few recipes from the It is Good to Know website. I have added both the Rosemary-Orange Chicken & Veggies and Stuffed Zucchini to next week’s dinner menu. While each require minimal ingredients include our fav’ed I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spray and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spread, the zucchini dish is most definitely outside of the box for me but what fun would a eating be without creating and trying new things every once in a while.

On second thought, thrilling, yummy moments should be reserved for dessert and with that I am crossing my fingers and pretty painted toes that I can recreate the Coffee-Infused Chocolate Cupcakes with a unique topper twist to make it a creation all my own. Are you wishing me luck yet?
