This week, once again, we are eating primarily from our freezer stock as I am trying to clean out the deep freeze, so that we can defrost it. I am targeting the end of this week to be able to fit all remaining frozen food in my upstairs freezer so that we can defrost it next weekend. I made a quick stop to pick up some bread for dinner on Sunday/Monday, but that should be it for the grocery trip this week. Of course, my husband and I realize that after we are done defrosting we are going to have a few weeks in a row of some more significant grocery bills as we restock.
I have been busy baking the past couple of days. Making some tried and true, like Brutzel Bars and Mint Chocolate Cookies, but trying some new ones like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Snowballs, which I found at Recipe Girl.
At our house, the focus is on dinners. I tend to only list the main course and any standard side we have with it. We do still have vegetables and/or fruit with each of our dinners, I just don't always call them out.
Leftovers and whatever you want
Spaghetti with meat sauce
Chicken Gravy over Biscuits
Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me.
