About The Well Fed Newlywed

My husband and I have been married just over a year and I still struggle with planning meals, staying frugal and healthy, and avoiding boredom.  Let’s face it: it’s not always easy to come up with a meal that feeds only 2 people!    In fact, if I didn’t have to make dinner every night, I wouldn’t.  This website is designed to help other newlyweds by sharing my recipes, tips and ideas for cooking and saving money.  We have a monthly grocery budget of $175.  Occasionally I will spend a tad over that amount, but I have yet to go over $200 a month for our groceries.  We eat out usually once a weekend on our date night, and brown bag our lunches to work. 

I must stress to you though, I am not a foodie.  My recipes have more family member’s names in them than French words.  I think there’s an art to putting dinner on the table every night, though.  I grew up in a small family and never really learned how to come up with dinner.  In the last year I have had to teach myself, and I’m still learning!  So I hope you will join me and check back often to see what I’m cookin’ up!
