Just wanted to quickly share - I haven't been grocery shopping - I mean the "heavy duty" kind of grocery shopping - in about 8 weeks. Sickness, being down to one vehicle, busy-ness of life, quick trips to grab a gallon of milk, eggs, etc., the produce co-op and just plain old wanting to stay home have prevented my usual twice a month shopping days. And so, it has been two months. I was thinking over the weekend about this, and thinking "surely this will be the week I will have to go stock up." And so I planned to take a portion of Monday to plan a menu based on the sales.
Monday came and went. We were busy! So yesterday morning I strolled into our pantry wondering what I could throw together for dinner from what I fully expected to be meager stores. Silly me. I came up with eleven meals I could stretch from that pantry in ten minutes. I am guessing if we throw in a few days of rice & beans I could even make it last longer. Hurray!
Today I'm praising the Lord that HE has blessed us with a pantry that can feed us for so long!
