It was another beautiful weekend in San Diego. I tried to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible again. We were at the beach all day yesterday and stayed until sunset. It is just so beautiful to watch and never gets old.

This week I am cooking with my slow cooker twice. It is a great way to cook a meal at home when you are on the go and having a busy week. I plan to make the spicy BBQ sauce today in order to save some time during the week. You can use commercial BBQ sauce if you want, but most of them are full of unnecessary chemicals, sugar and wheat. It really is simple and non-expensive to make your own. Give it a try.

Here is the Word version of the menu with grocery list Weekly Dinner Menu – Week 22.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Enjoy this beautiful Sunday!

~Eat well, be well.
