Meal Plan 5/29 – 6/4

The food budget resets this week, my local farmer’s market begins again, and a trip to Trader Joe’s is in the plans! Trader Joe’s is NOT local to me, so it’s a “stock up” for things I can’t get as cheap locally. Girl’s on a budget.  I have a hybrid so I’m not losing all much money by making the drive. I try to go at least once every two months.  My FAVORITES are the canned cream coconut and salsa verde.  You HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU’RE MISSING until you try this stuff!

I am watching my carb intake (medical issues) and cutting gluten, which I mentioned in my recent recipe for gluten-free biscuits.  This is a meal plan for my family… it doesn’t mean I am eating it all, as the rest of my family is not gluten-free or watching their carb in-take.  (They aren’t anti-gluten-free, for which I’m thankful! We’ve been eating some gluten-free options for years just because the ingredients are healthier or easier for me to control.)

I use this post to create my grocery list, and then come back to it in the middle of the week so I remember what to thaw.  It’s not as big of a deal this week, but some weeks recipes “go” off each other: for example, I might roast a whole chicken one day because next day I’m going to use it to make homemade chicken salad.  I write this out as much for me as to help you!

At any rate, onward….
