So, why is it that I'm constantly at the grocery store buying new stuff? Especially fresh meat? I think it's that whole idea of, "wanting something new and easy". It's much easier to buy a new pork tenderloin than it is to thaw one out and prep it, just like it's easy to buy it & toss it in the freezer for a rainy day. At this point I have enough food planned for Noah's flood.
So this month I'm trying to cut my grocery bill for 2nd Half November by using 1 thing out of my freezer at each dinner. Yesterday for lunch we had homemade Turkey Soup - out of the kitchen freezer. For dinner we had pork chops (freezer), butternut squash - 2 different recipes because my kids like one thing and my H likes another (both already prepared and out of the freezer), leftover MacNCheese, and because all this was prepared, I was able to make a pot of homemade applesauce.
Of which, I split in half and put some in the freezer for a rainy day.
