Happy Friday! Here is another menu and shopping list for the week.
A little something that I want to talk about though before I get into this is shelf cooking. The term was coined by Jordan Page of funcheaporfree.com. She is a mother of 5 with another on the way and is the queen of frugal living. She’s so funny and really inspiring to me! I would definitely suggest following her and watching some of her YouTube videos if you haven’t already.
Now, as for shelf cooking, Jordan defines it as, “Shelf cooking is making homemade, balanced, and nutritious meals for your family, starting FIRST with ingredients you already have on-hand from your fridge, freezer, and pantry, then supplementing with fresh/new items from the store….not the other way around.” She’s doing a #shelfcookingchallenge for the month of May and I’m joining in on the fun! This means that there was a lot of manipulation of the recipes below this week but I have to say, everything came out pretty darn good. Try doing it yourself! It’s been pretty great so far… We haven’t spent any money on groceries this week. We’ve been able to just use the fresh vegetables we had already in the fridge and anything we had in the freezer or pantry.
Now go spend less time planning + shopping and go do what you LOVE!
