I did NOT realize how much food we had in the freezer. I can go two more weeks not buying meat. I don't know if that's good or not. I think it would be good if we had bought things using a budget and stocking up. But I think it was just buying.
I have been looking at using coupons, and I must confess. it is very confusing to me. And time consuming. And confusing. And I don't use most of whatever it is that has coupons. I could probably use them on paper goods and hygiene products, but really that is about it.
I looked at snippets of the new show Extreme Couponing. I must admit it was interesting to see how much STUFF they could buy for so little. But when I saw all the shelves they had to buy to hold the STUFF, how much storage space they needed to house the shelves, how much STUFF they had, I had questions about the saving money part. Then I really watched the snippets and thought a few thoughts. Those people are either a) bored and need something to do b) have a fixation with paper, scissors, notebooks and scanners, or c) should really be over on the Hoarders show.
So I am confessing on this blog once and for all....I DON'T USE COUPONS AND AM VERY VERY GLAD OR HAPPY OR RELIEVED OR SOMETHING.
There, I feel better and now on to the menu for the week.
Mon. Chicken salad in pita bread using lettuce and spinach from our garden. How fulfilling. And hopefully filling. he he
Tue. Fajitas with chips and homemade salsa. Sauerkraut Chocolate Cake. The recipe is from Weight Watchers and is very moist and delicious.
Wed. Baked Talapias with fried okra and sweet potatoes. Yum, Yum.
Thur. Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. I think this has been on the menu for 4 weeks now. We just haven't gotten around to making it. Not that we went out or anything...I think I was just too tired the nights we were supposed to and...I am NOT giving you any more excuses. We just didn't and we
Fri. Breakfast. Pumpkin bread, scrambled eggs, organic sausage. The coffee cake from last week was AMAZING! One of my skinny children ate 3 helpings and snacked on it the next day. I will post a recipe soon...with pics from my husbands camera. I hope.
Sat. Pizza from Little Caesars. It is work day at the church and I will be TIRED.
Sun. The men cook breakfast at church after our Resurrection Service, then a BBQ back at church that night. Probably a salad and cake.
Next week I will still be using things out of the freezer. It will be VERY creative and I will be scouring the internet looking for ideas.
