Monday Meal Plan ~ Week 6 & 7

Here we are week 6 & 7. We are moving and we are filtering through some of our food storage to consume what we don't feel we need to move, so this weeks meals are more odds and ends..we have some food items that aren't enough for a whole meal, but more like an a la carte kind of deal. We also wont have a freezer till we build the elec grid, so we are clearing that out.

Things to Remember 

 I try to post as much info as time allows, but if you have a specific question, please ask.. I will be happy to answer. Don't forget to choose the option to receive notifications to pots when you comment.. otherwise you may never know I answered! :)

I try to do bulk shopping once a month a fill in weekly as needed. We do a pantry build, so we tend to buy large quantities of basic food items. This is not because we have a large family, although it helps, but this method also works great for smaller families and even single people. I like to shop sale/clearance items. I rarely use coupons. I will also include here random non-food grocery items, as I do include that in our budget. We shop for ingredients, not meals. This saves money and we eat a bit better I think.

Our Meal Plan
* Snacks are usually cheese and crackers, pretzels, fruit/veggies, or fresh baked goods
*Sundays we fast one meal, the littles usually snack since they do not fast. ( its optional for everyone)
*We do have a small supplement of food from our homestead. Although, its not a lot.

Our weekly menu is brought to you by Quinten, who is officially in charge of planning and preparing the majority of the family meals.

I skipped a menu this week. It was too much to keep up with.

We ate through a lot of our freezer meats. This is not common for us to eat a lot of meats.

We also ate a lot of ice cream.

Shopping List

I am posting this without completing the shopping list to keep on track. I plan to finish the lists... I have tallied the totals. 
(prices are for each, unless noted )


Total week (2 weeks) spending $212.83 Total month spending $418.24 Total year spending (9/8/13) $1206.73

*If for some reason you think we aren't eating right, then no worries, just move along. I assure you my family is extremely healthy and our diet sustains my very energetic free range children.
