Food 3/23- 3/27

Monday brought a quick, wild storm that toppled tall skinny pines as I watched through our bedroom window. Luckily, we nor any of our neighbors sustained major damage. Still, fallen trees lined our road and power lines draped a little too loosely from house to poll and created a web to maneuver our cars through. We were without power from around 4:30 p.m on Monday until Friday around lunch. We’re still without cable and internet services. In fact, the line is still wrapped around our mail box. We stayed at home without power the first night, but the next two were a little too chilly. Cody’s parents welcomed us for supper each night and my parents allowed us to use their hot water and extra bedroom. What a blessing family is.  

Four days without power meant a sparkling clean, Pinterest-inspired (but empty) fridge. I’ll have to post a before and after picture later. The transformation was amazing, if a little embarrassing that we’re that gross.

Anyways, I didn’t get around to grocery shopping until yesterday. We’ve got another big trip coming up, so I’m trying to skimp and stretch as much as possible.  Here’s the menu:
