A few weeks ago my big kids were gone. So, I decided to go grocery shopping in the Honda Car.
After I dropped the children off (with their lunches) at Tami's house I loaded the back of the car with a 50 pound bag of potatoes, 25 lbs of Oatmeal, 20 lbs of Flour, and 20 lbs of Cane Sugar as well as the other 'smaller' groceries.
We are feeding our family for $2. 08 per person per day! Granted this does not include our eggs (from our chickens) or the 1/2 beef my mother in law gave us for Christmas, but it does include toiletries.
It does,however involve a fair bit of creativity, and it isn't easy but we are doing it. God is faithful, he provides. We got some leftovers from a training at Sean's work and were able to freeze some for future meals and eat a few meals from them while we were at it. Plus I got a bonus night of not having to cook.
So here goes:
Breakfast: Granola and Berry Smoothies
Lunch: Chicken Salad, String Cheese, Granola Bars
Dinner: Teriyaki Chicken, Rice, Pot stickers, Asparagus
Breakfast: oatmeal with blueberries and slivered almonds
Lunch: fried rice (we are studying about China this week)
Dinner: Turkey and rice soup
Breakfast; Dutch Babies
Lunch: homemade pizza, regular and Gluten Free
Dinner: Taco Soup with sour cream, avocado, and chips
Breakfast: granola with raspberries and yogurt
Dinner: BBQ meatloaf, broccoli, and potatoes
Breakfast: scrambled eggs and cereal
Lunch: string cheese, granola bars (homemade), powerballs, and apple slices
Dinner: Pulled pork (sandwiches or over rice), and brussel sprouts,
Breakfast: oatmeal with Craisins
Lunch: Same as Friday (we have the Whatcom County Youth Fair both days)
Dinner: Pad Thai
So happy that's done! What's on your menu this week?
