I'm so proud of myself

So I want grocery shopping tonight and bought all our food for the month. Including all the supplies I needed (freezer bags and stuff) I only spent $176 dollars! FOR THE MONTH!!! I am so stoked! I think that this is really going to work! I already started making the meals and right now I have over a weeks worth of meals and I only spent about the same time I would have in the kitchen making one nice meal! That's alot of time I now have to spent with my family instead of in the kitchen! There are alot of things that I am going to be making that Eric can also use as lunches! He's already using the burritos and pizza poppers (I'll get that recipe on here soon!!!) I am going to make Chicken Wraps that he can heat up too! There are also last minute meals like chicken nuggets! This is going to be nice too in the summer, I won't have to spend a ton of time over a hot stove in the summer months!!! LOTS OF POSITIVES!!!

That's awesome! Heck, I'm happy if I make something in the crock pot in the morning for dinner that night.

Good job Mary! I can't wait to get some recipes from you and the instructions on how to do these Freezer meals.

Mary??? You live in Idaho Falls now?? Do you like it? I was surprised to see your post today! What a cute family you have...fosburg? Is your husband from Spokane? My mom taught a Fosburg in seminary...when she taught at U-high..

Hey Mary--Thanks for reading my blog!! I am going to try out your frozen burritos; does freezing them make them break all apart? Do they heat up good? I am a Kitchen loser.
