Happy Independence Day!
This is our last week for the $100/week Natural Food Challenge! I can't believe it's been 10 weeks already. I plan to continue on our $100/week for the most part but I will be giving myself extra $ to stock up on summer produce to freeze and/or can for winter use. We're also going to be purchasing half a cow soon, which will cut our meat prices by at least 1/2! We found a local farm where the cows are grass fed, pasteurized, and no hormones/antibiotics for $2.85/pound and that includes anything from ground to steaks. Currently we pay $5.00 for ground, $6.50 for roasts and on the rare occasion we get steak it's in the teens. So, as you can see this is going to save us a ton of money.
This week is going to be easy, simple meals because it's just Scott and I. The boys went to Grammy and Pawpaw's house on Friday and will be home on Thursday. It's been great having time with just Scott but it does feel odd. It will be even weirder to me tomorrow when I'm the only one home. I've already got all the ingredients with the exception of charcoal for grilling.
Monday: Chili dogs
Tuesday: Brats on the Grill
Thursday: Spaghetti with rice pasta
Saturday: Crockpot chicken and veggies
Sunday: Out after church
