What is on a the menu at our house?

I get an email at least once a week asking me what I feed my family. Most of them are  just wanting to learn how to cross over from the habit of shopping daily for that days menu plan.  While others are convinced we eat  nothing but processed food.  They see the photos of what I buy that week and can not seem to wrap their brain around the idea of cooking from that weeks promo items and your stockpile.

Some of you “type A” personality’s  are much more organized than me, and I am sure there is a rotation chart or something fancy that would make menu planning easier.  But I do what works for me, I plan my meals around the fresh promo items that I get that week.  As well as what I get in my Bountiful Basket that week.  I then use my food storage or stockpile items, as well as freezer items to plan my meals.

Being that I do not write my menu out a week in advance  I am sharing last weeks menu with you!  Hope it helps you understand that eating from your stockpile can be made a way of life,  is both rewarding and thrifty!

Sarah, I smiled when I saw "clean out the refrigerator night" We do the same thing once a week in our home. We call it people's choice night. Our kiddos love this too! So glad to see I'm not the only one who does this. I REALLY LOVE this night! Means I get a break from cooking and food isn't going to waste. Although, I am finding since the four boys are getting older, I'm not getting as many of these nights as I'd like.:)
