This weekend, instead of going to the grocery store for a big shop, I'm opting for a little shop. On my list:
That's it. I want to spend as little as possible because next week will likely be a BIG shop! My cousin Jillie will be staying with us for a few days and I want to save my money for her visit!
I'll be honest, our cupboards are looking a little bare. What's a girl to do! Turn to Pinterest! For the next few days, I'll be winging it and utilizing some of their awesome recipes! We have pasta, veggies, shredded cheeses, barley, rice, quinoa, cream, and some other "random" things. We also have flour (OK, A LOT of flour), eggs, Nutella, and lots of stuff to bake with. I am going to do my best to use up what we have before I buy more.
Sounds like a plan, right? Good g-d I hope so!
On the docket for the rest of this week:
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Corn and butter
Sweet potato soup with garlic toast
Blueberry oatmeal bars
Baked Barley Risotto
Chicken finger wraps
I know, it leaves a bit to be desired without a lot of protein. But if we can get away with NOT spending this weekend, then the sacrifice is worth it! I'm sick of buying stuff at the grocery store when I don't plan on using it for a few weeks. This will give us a chance to use up what we have before we buy more.
I know I owe you a BIG BIG BIG update and I promise you'll get it. I'm even planning a tutorial on how to make Latkes for Hanukkah... so stay tuned!
