Better Eating...

Ok, I have a confession to make. Since couponing (which is a truly wonderful thing), I have really neglected good, healthy meals for me and my family and I think we ALL have been suffering for it.
Well, no more - and last night was the perfect start to eating right and using my meal-planning and couponing together to make the best, most healthy meals I can make for my family.
For starters we had a really yummy Strawberry Spinach salad with poppy seed dressing (Thanks Jess Fragile for that one!)
The main course included salmon with fire-roasted tomatoes, a splash of sherry cooking wine and some onions and dill on top -- umm, super yum! Spanish yellow rice, and some green beans to compliment and voila - a perfect meal.
I know it may sound silly to some but for the first time in quite a while, I felt like I did something good for my family. It was not just a thrown-together type of meal but a wonderful, sit-down, healthy meal. This is what I love doing and I have truly missed it. When it was all said and done, a little wink and a hug from my hubby and 2 little kids with big smiles on their faces saying "this is delicious" was all the thanks I needed.
Oh and I must give a shout out to my sweet daughter Kira who very much helped with this wonderful dinner -- thank you my sweet little girl for your precious help! I love doing things with you!!

I like your post. I try to use coupons as much as I can but find that most of them are for junk food, so I end up passing a lot of the supposed 'deals' up.
