I know....boring post compared to my usual, but I had to blog about my accomplishment today. This week I decided that I was going to plan our meals for the month of August, cook some of them in one day, stick them in the deep freeze and pull them out when I needed them. I have gotten sick of buying groceries each when then feeling like I had nothing to cook. Well, I made my list (which looked a mile long) and headed to Wal-Mart. Much to my surprise, I spent less on a month supply of meals than I normally would have spent for two weeks of groceries. I will obviously have to go back and buy fresh things like bread, milk, fruit, etc., but I got all the ingredients I needed to cook for 9 meals! I cooked five casseroles this morning and froze them. I will then cook "small" meals one night a week. I know this is really boring to most, but it has become a bit of an obsession this week, and if you can't tell, I am really excited about it!! I will let you know how we do throughout the month with our pre-prepared meals!
