Holy moly did I spend a lot this week. I guess after eating super simple last week when my husband was out of town I wanted to start cooking actual meals this week.

I am most excited for the beef bones and beef shank- I am going to attempt to make my own beef stock this week. I have always wanted to try this but would end up just buying the pre-made stuff because it was cheap; I no longer buy my food just based on cheap so homemade seems to be the way to go. It is so much more nutritious and you can control the ingredients that go into it- wish me luck!

I am also planning on making tuna casserole this week- it is my husband's favorite meal (the kids and I don't care for it much). Instead of using canned cream of mushroom soup, which is full of not that great ingredients, I am going to make my own from scratch (the beef stock is going to come into play for this recipe). I am hoping it comes out great and maybe this time I will actually think it tastes good.
