After weeks of eating only from my freezer and pantry, I finally went to the grocery store today!
Back at the beginning of January, my freezer looked like this-
Today it looked more like this-
I still have a little bit of food including several bags of pork tenderloin, but overall it’s pretty empty! We’ve eaten much better than I originally thought and haven’t had any completely random meals.
I’ll also be making a big batch of apple butter and canning it soon with my bags of frozen apple slices.
The Instant Pot has been helpful for several recipes involving frozen chicken. Two of my favorites were a chicken and noodles recipe and a chicken Parmesan casserole- both were really yummy!
I didn’t save as much as I hoped but still came under well under budget. Most of what I bought this month were breakfast and lunch items- we seem to go through those much quicker than meat and dinner items!
Now that my freezer isn’t empty anymore, I’ll be spending time over the next few weeks filling it with precooked ingredients and whole freezer foods! I’m looking forward to sharing some of the recipes soon!
Happy Grocery Shopping Day!
