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!

Whoops! I thought I paid 1.49/lb at that WinCo sale. The other is still true though I look for 1.50-2.00 lb for my meat.

Thank you very much for showing your manu plan. I love to read it to get ideas what to make and to be more organized. You are an amazing example! I was trying to make a manu plan, but it worked only for a couple of days and I was thinking if only I had a sample, so thank you for that!

Natalie, I was able to score pork roast locally for $1.49/lb (unseasoned) when WinCo in Nampa was running their open house sale. I like to get meat at the $1.50 to 2.00 per pound, at that price I stock quite a few in my freezer.
