I never go to Walmart on a weekend but actually it wasn't bad. I spent the morning on chores and making my list and menu for at least the next 2 weeks or more. I used to do a menu all the time but with just me it seemed a little overkill. But I actually missed doing it and when a couple people like Rain and Marsha mentioned theirs I thought I should get back to it so I did and I am! Also, my new to me cookbook, Apples and Jam, is just full of wonderful, healthy and beautiful dishes which definitely inspired me.
Here's my menu for the month? We'll see how long it lasts me........
Homemade granola with Almond milk and fruit
eggs with bread and butter
smoothies with almond milk and fresh fruit
white milk bread
Meat and vegetable soup
meatloaf and vegetables
roast chicken dinner
pecan butter cookies
lemon meringue pie
orange and olive oil cake with pine nuts
Homemade crackers with cheese
organic Tostitos with guacamole
water (of course)
coffee in the morning
These are almost all homemade from scratch using as many organic ingredients as I can. Good news too! Walmart now has organic lean ground beef and grass fed beef with no antibiotics, hormones, etc. like their 'natural' chicken which is all I buy. I did a 'happy dance' in the meat aisle!
I am trying to be as self-sufficient as possible although it is a lot of work and like tonight I am really tired after shopping. loading, unloading and putting away. I have all this produce to wash tomorrow...I just don't think my legs can handle much more today! LOL!
But my larder is full and I am a blessed woman!
Tomorrow is roast chicken dinner for Mother's Day and that lemon meringue pie I have been dreaming about! Happy Mother's Day Eve!
Happy Trails too!
