What We're Eating
When people hear about our low grocery bill, they often ask what we're eating, and I feel like I don't always give a clear answer since it changes from month to month. So I thought I'd let you know what our dinners will be for the next few days or so:
French Dip Sandwiches
Buttermilk Herb Chicken (marinated & grilled)
Ham and Sweet Potato Pie
Chicken Caesar Casserole
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Southwestern Corn Chowder
Chicken Pot Pie
Refrigerated Bran Oatmeal Muffins (which we already ate through 4 dozen muffins in 2 days! New recipe for us and I think they liked it!)
All of the recipes are freezer meals, some are doubled, and I'm still in the process of making some of them (between taking care of my five and the other four I watch, time is limited). Most of the recipes are from Holly Clegg's Trim & Terrific Freezer Friendly Meals cookbook (there's a link at the bottom if you want to check it out). A great cookbook if you're interested in keeping your meals lower in fat but full of flavor.
So there you have it! With each of these meals we usually have a fresh fruit and a veggie (we're eating from the garden right now). If you're interested in any of the recipes, let me know and I'll send some your way. Oh, and wouldn't you just love to be in that picture? It looks like a fine place to be!
