So, I thought my first post on our weeknight meals would look perfectly planned out and like we’ve totally got our life together. Well, that didn’t happen. It was a short work week, so we thought we could just wing it for those four “short” days. While we were able to keep everything keto-friendly, it’s… Continue reading Weeknight Meals #1
