July 16, 2019 100 By William Morgan


hey loves it’s Brianna welcome back to my
channel in today’s video I’m going to be
doing a grocery shopping haul sharing
what I buy how I meal plan for my family
of four if you’re new here I have a
little boy he’s three and a half and my
daughter is 18 months and my husband is
Adam so I’m feeding a family for I shop
basically every 10 days so I will show
you exactly how I meal plan for our
family breakfast lunch dinner exactly
what I buy and because we’re so close to
Christmas you’re getting a little bit of
a bonus of the Christmas cookies that
I’m making those ingredients and then
what I’m making for our Christmas meals
on Christmas Eve Christmas days you’ll
get to know a little bit of our family
meal traditions when it comes to the
holidays but for this grocery store haul
I’ll show you everything I get for just
general I guess meal planning and at the
end I’ll give you a grand total of what
everything cost for sort of my every
week meal planning for my family of four
and then I’ll do what everything costs
for the Christmas cookies and Christmas
meals because I just want to take those
out of the equation since they are
special for just this time of year and
because I want to make this grocery
store haul and like meal planning very
useful I’m going to link my blog down
below and that is where I will include
all of the recipes for exactly how to
make the meals then for the all the
ingredients that I purchased for this
grocery store haul so I hope that it’s
helpful for you and if you like these
types of videos on my channel as always
click that thumbs up and posting every
day at 8 a.m. now until Christmas so
make sure that you reek lick that
notification bell because a lot of
people have said that they aren’t
getting notifications right now and
YouTube’s been doing some funny stuff so
make sure you’re subscribed and had that
Bell clicked all right so I’m gonna get
started with our family’s breakfast
staples I personally am NOT a huge
breakfast eater but I know that the kids
love breakfast so they really like toast
so I have some wheat bread
they love these little mini muffins I
have the egg Oh pancakes french toast
sticks and Mickey waffles and because
Landon has butter sensitivity I actually
do too I love using this Smart Balance
it’s made with olive oil so it’s the
consistency of butter but it’s made of
olive oil so that’s what I kind of use
to butter all their things these I might
use for a breakfast or lunch but if we
are on the go I love these fruit and
veggie squeeze pouches eggs of course
can be good especially on the weekends
not usually during the week but I’ll use
those a lot on the weekends and I had to
get 18 because of all the Christmas
cookies and some of the brunch recipes
that I have to make that require a lot
of eggs I like putting fruit with their
breakfast – so I have raspberries
strawberries I also have these yogurt
pouches these again are really good for
on-the-go and can be used with breakfast
for lunch
as far as milk goes so Landon loves
brown but I usually cut it with some
regular milk so I will do like 2/3 white
milk with just like a little splash of
brown chocolate milk
he calls it brown sorry guys oh and
Fred’s Lee’s has home milk then for me I
really like for breakfast a lot of times
granola and yogurt so I love getting the
different flavors of Greek yogurt I
think I have a lemon meringue I think I
did two lemons because I really like the
lemon I have a banana cream pie and I
got a raspberry yogurt so I like having
that with the vanilla almond granola
coffee in the morning these are some of
me and Adams favorites
besides my mushroom coffee but I love
the cinnamon he loves this caramel
vanilla cream and then there’s just a
regular breakfast blend but I like the
coffee mate this is natural blissed
almond milk it’s a vanilla coffee
creamer and I feel like that almond milk
one is really good I have some apples
and bananas Landon has been on a
pomegranate kick lately so got a bunch
of pomegranates for him and then these I
just like for on
go if you know we’re rushing out because
of preschool or something
these Luna bars so I got lemon zest
there’s a chocolate walnut fudge protein
and there’s another protein one that’s
chocolate peanut butter but just so you
can see how my meal plan for breakfast
its muffins french toast pancakes
waffles toast cereal
whether that’s oatmeal granola the olive
oil butter coffee creamer melon fruits
or some kind of smoothie drink is sort
of the plan for breakfast all right
we’re gonna take a fast break from this
haul and do the letters of the day I’m
gonna put them right here on the screen
makes you write them down for the
vlogmas word scramble and on the
christmas vlog is where you can put in
your entry so that you can be entered in
for that 500 dollar Amazon gift card
$500 spa finder gift card and the $100
grow collaborative credit so you can get
all those cleaning goodies for the new
year and then all of these lunches are
super simple for the kids I always make
sure they have some kind of fruit veggie
yogurt to go with their lunch but it’s
either mac and cheese grilled cheese
either peanut butter and jelly or a
sunflower butter for Landon and jelly
cuz he can’t have peanut butter
quesadillas and then my husband he
really likes mini corndogs so does
Landon I didn’t get those because they
didn’t have the brand that we like this
week and for myself I usually do
something simple like a can of soup or
honestly I just snack on a ton of fruits
and veggies and like peanut butter and
very quick easy things when I’m usually
running around during the day so these
are much more like a kid geared lunches
but this bread is still used for that I
just want to share I love lemonade I
also love just having lemon water so I
usually get these sometimes I’ll add
fresh lemon to my water but I love these
Cecilia probably cuz I’m Sicilian but
some peanut butter which will be for
Pressley sandwiches and for some of the
bacon that we’re going to do I have
these singles that are good for the
grilled cheese and these just macaroni
and cheese cups and a lot of times like
our kids love to snack on goldfish so I
got both the Mickey and these Christmas
goldfish
and then just for with their lunches and
baby cut carrots and I’ll use one of
these broccoli floret packs just to kind
of give them some broccoli for on the
side but then a lot of this stuff kind
of overlaps for dinner than 2 because
the meals I have planned for dinner for
us our chili with chips I have a red
sauce with rigatoni planned I have a
chicken alfredo and fettuccine planned
burgers and salad and a beef with
broccoli so for the burgers I have these
ground beef burgers and I got some whole
wheat buns we can use this cheese and I
have planned salad to go with them so
just Italian salad I’ll probably just do
like balsamic and olive oil I have my
olive oil here with my minced garlic
because I’m almost out of my other jar
but I’ll use this with the teriyaki
sauce one of these packages of the
broccoli florets and then one of these
it’s like stir-fried beef and I can just
throw all that in the crock pot to make
a beef with broccoli and then got ramen
noodles the beef flavor to go along with
that and then when it comes to the red
sauce and rigatoni this is also one of
the meals I make for our Christmas Day
dinner
I love making like meatballs with beef
and veal so like it it just gives it a
very unique taste and flavor and then I
also in the sauce I’d let it cook for
about 24 hours on low I add in some pork
chops I like chop those up and some
sweet Italian sausage so some of this
will go and because this is a huge like
3 pound pack of beef so when I just do
the red sauce I’ll just make some like
small meatballs or even just throw the
sauce right or use me throw the meat
right into this sauce but I got a couple
different flavors just because I’d like
mixing them a little bit but I got a
mushroom a garden style and two that are
three cheese with then rigatoni so we
can have meat sauce in rigatoni one
night this week and then I’ll do the
actual big like meatball sausage pork
sauce that will simmer for 24 hours and
be amazing I like stomach is growling
just thinking about it because it’s so
good um but I’ve shared this one a bunch
on I think
like Instagram and in some other videos
I love this Bertolli it’s a creamy basil
alfredo sauce I just use a package of
chicken breast and the same chopped
garlic throw that into the crock-pot let
it cook all day it turns out amazing and
I got some whole grain linguini then
that I will serve that on and then when
it comes to the chili I have these
Tomatoes chili beans
I like this organic chili and I have
already in my freezer some ground-up
turkey I usually use ground turkey in my
chili because I really don’t notice the
taste different and that way it’s a
little bit healthier so and then just
for meal planning for Christmas our
brunch I do like a sausage bake bacon
eggs cinnamon rolls this lemon ice jello
mold with raspberries on the top it’s so
good orange juice are we also have
champagnes we could make mimosas and
then that garlic red sorry that goes
with like the Christmas sauce but in
that bake there needs to be a loaf of
bread the sweet Italian sausage there’s
a bunch of eggs that will go in that
this is the bacon there’s Colby jack
cheese and cream of mushroom soup and
again I’ll have this like recipe for
that sausage egg bake on the blog then I
just got the Pillsbury grands cinnamon
rolls are so good orange juice and then
for Christmas Eve so we like to do
appetizers just like very simple because
we know we’re gonna be doing like a big
brunch the next morning and that red
sauce that I usually and making on
Christmas Eve so Adam picked out he
loves these pepper jack filled pretzels
and I’m gonna make the buffalo chicken
dip
I’ll have the recipe for that on the
blog for you guys too and then when it
comes to Christmas cookies this year
I’ll share these recipes but we’re gonna
be making butter cookies collage cheese
maple thumb prints peanut butter
blossoms and Italian cookies and so
these are kind of all the ingredients I
need so I’ll need one of the packs of
cream cheese I need a lot of sour cream
for the collage peas
lots of margarine because I’m avoiding
butter for just myself in Landon two big
things of flour I have the kisses for
the peanut butter blossoms baking soda
baking powder
I get pure vanilla extract I really hate
the taste of like imitation and same
thing with almond and I’m a little bit
disappointed though because I did the
pre-order for our grocery and this is
like the filling that I usually use and
I think they said they were out of the
raspberry and cherry so they substituted
like pie fillings and I just don’t think
that’s gonna work so I think I’m gonna
have to end up going back to the store
before I make the collage keys and the
thumb prints but I also just picked up
some frosting for the cut out cookies
and oh this over here is for that jello
mold I was talking about it’s like lemon
jello mixed with Cool Whip and then you
top it with the raspberries you kind of
make like a syrupy sauce out of those
that goes over the top but it is so good
and in just a couple random things I
threw in this haul I ordered these
fridge and freezer packs because I
wanted to do one in both the fridge and
freezer because I just cleaned it out in
like a deep cleaning video last week and
randomly this popped up as something
suggested so I decided to try this it’s
like a foaming cleaner for your garbage
disposal so give it a try okay so I did
not expect to be crying in a grocery
haul a video but instead of just like
shouting out one person at a I like I’m
opening all these cards because I
stopped at the PIO box today on my way
to the grocery store and you guys have
sent me like the nicest things like
literally I’m like that kind cuz I’m
upset I’m crying because I literally I’m
just like I’m so touched I’ve shared
before that like words of affirmation or
my love language and oh my gosh I did
not just expect to read some of what I
wrote in your cards and that’s I just
want to say like I have a peel box but
please don’t ever send gifts do not
waste your money like put your money to
a good cause or to somebody you know
who’s really in need but if you ever
want to send me a card I’m just like
what
they blow it away Thanks oh good lord
but truly okay so I want to just like
say the names of the people who cards
have like touched me so Jacqueline thank

York I hope I’m saying that right Kim P
Steve Heather Anastasia and Jackson Lisa

thank you guys like I’m so touched right
now and just reading like your words and
your kind thoughts and prayers for our
family and for Adam and fear my dad I’m
just blown away by you so thank you
thank you thank you
Society I’m like crying over my boss mom
cook over here today’s inspirational
quote of the day is by kamila Kimball
and it is never suppressed a generous
dot and I had to pick that one after
reading all of these cards because you
all clearly went way out of your way to
even send me something and write those
kind words and whether it is somebody
that you see in person that you want to
give a compliment to or tell them
something you’ve always admired about
them or somebody that you might not even
know that well on your feed on Facebook
or on Instagram leave them a compliment
if there’s something you see that you
think in your head like oh they’re great
at this or that looks awesome share that
because I can tell you like I woke up
this morning just being totally honest I
have a really big to-do list I had some
feelings of like self-doubt but
literally opening up those cards has
changed like the fact that I have a
really long to-do list I’m like ready to
take it on because I feel really good
now so you just your words and your kind
thoughts can completely turn somebody’s
day around so don’t be afraid if you
have something nice on your brain share
it okay I know I promised at the end
here I was going to tell you what the
grand total was so for the
meal planning like for a family of four
how much it cost for all of the meals
which by the way I typed it all out it’s
on my blog bits of Brie blog.com make
sure you check it out because I have
exactly how the meals are broken down
and I have the full shopping list so if
you just want to print out the list and
go to the grocery store or use that list
and put in an online order it can be
super simple for you um and I did budget
in like two nights of either having
leftovers or getting takeout or like
going out to eat so there are just five
dinners but we always do eat our
breakfast and lunches at home but the
total cuz you’re like that’s what I’m
waiting for
I’m gonna show you on the screen because
I put everything in the online checkout
so I just wanted it to be exact so I
think you guys are gonna be pretty happy
because it is under two hundred dollars
so right now I know you know prices can
vary based on produce and whether or not
you’re buying organic and I actually do
have quite a bit of organic products in
here because I always do organic dairy
just because I’ve read a lot about the
hormones and milk and how that
especially can affect a little girls but
all kids so I was buy organic dairy
products and I try to buy organic like
meats and even produce as much as
possible but I thought that was pretty
good under $200 to feed a family of four
for a week okay and what I really love I
just realized if anybody else lives
where there are giant Eagles that’s
where we shop you can save different
shopping lists on their online shopping
so I just saved that as like meal plan
one and I made another list that has all
of the Christmas cookie ingredients so
next year it will be so easy just to go
back in and order everything that I need
for the Christmas cookies um but the
total for all of the Christmas cookie of
Christmas cookies are expensive man
sixty three dollars and seventy four
cents see isn’t it cool you can like
make a list and see whatever you know
you need based on whether it’s a meal
plan or Christmas cookies and then
everything I need for our Christmas
brunch ended up being
sixty one dollars and 49 cents okay so I
just made another list for Christmas
dinner which is 46 dollars and 36 cents
so I think what I’m gonna do is just
have separate blog posts so I’ll do a
blog post for all of the meal planning
and then I’ll do a Christmas cookie
recipe blog post and then I’m gonna try
to get around to it but doing like the
Christmas brunch and Christmas dinner
recipes I’m gonna combine those or make
them separate but I’ll be working on
some blog post here for you guys if I
don’t get them all out by the time that
this video goes live keep checking back
because I’ll try to get them up then

shopping haul was helpful and I hope
