Used up one of my many winter squashes for dinner tonight, along with my mountain of rice. Spent $14 at the farmer's market for kale, broccoli, apples, and mandarins.

Joining in!

We need to save for a new roof, and just rotate out food stores. We have a bunch of home-canned goods from last year. And I kind of overstocked during the high gas prices of 2008, so I need to use what we have before it goes bad.

The good news is that in the past few months we have been really good at eating our leftovers. I really hate to waste food!

Chicky, I am SO jealous of your berries! I can't keep berries either- my DDs LOVE them. They even eat the seedy wild raspberries our of the freezer

I'd also love some Indian recipes

Well today I compiled all of our spending for 2009. I was a little fuzzy on my numbers since I've been budgeting in 4 week chunks instead of month to month. I spent $6927 on groceries/ food to cook at home last year, including bulk meats. That breaks down to $577/month. Spending was definitely higher at the beginning of the year. I brought the spending down to less than $500/month starting in the fall. Hopefully I can keep that up.

Working on my meal plan for this week...

We are getting our side in 2 weeks so eating down a bit of the freezer.
We have baby back ribs in merinade right now and I am making sweet potato french fries too.

The marinade had tequila in the mix so I am able to use up some that we didnt care for. That is usually my way of getting rid of wine or liquor that we didnt care to drink.

Tonight's dinner: Chicken Tacos in the Crockpot. Used corn, peppers and chicken from the freezer, home-canned salsa, and beans and home-made taco seasoning from the pantry.

Also made Sweet & Spicy Tofu (had to get fresh cilantro though), Tuna Salad and Pasta for lunches this week.

I am thinking I need to start canning my own beans - we have a lot of dried beans to use up, and I think I will use the quicker if they are ready to go in a soup/tacos/etc.

As I am organizing my freezer, I discovered a larger tupperware container of beef chili DH made for a party on Halloween. We had 4 types of chili and there must have been a lot of that leftover. So maybe this weekend, we can eat it or save it for Superbowl Sunday etc.

Tonight eating some swedish meatballs I had frozen (just need to cook them) with noodles we have a half a bag of. Today for lunch a salad of all kinds of things for me and home made mac n cheese for dd2 with diced up ham.

I made a tomato based soup using left overs and items I froze over the summer. Very good!

I am using up this and that, and trying to figure out how to not use up everything before we start getting our CSA again- 4months before I can get fresh greens.

I have two whole chickens, beef meat and some boneless/skinless chicken breast.

So I"m wondering how you figure out how long your bulk beef and pork will last you? I'm trying to figure out how much I should budget for this. I"m clueless

As far as saving money is concerned, I'm wondering how the big families can eat on so little? We are spending around $450-$500 (average) a month to feed myself, dh, and ds (21 months) and many of you are posting that much for twice the family!? What am I doing wrong? I suppose you can take 10% off of that because we also buy diapers/cleaning supplies/etc with that. Help me reduce my bill! We do eat a lot of fruit and fresh vegies but I can't imagine sacrificing those!

Also, anyone interested in posting organized pantry pictures? Before and afters? I'm curious about how many of you store/organize things!

Camille
Stockpiling. And we raise some of our meats, and lots of our veggies. Plus we forage. My parents and their neighbor trap feral pigs each winter, worm them and feed them for 30 days to get the wormer out, and we go up and butcher, butcher, butcher. Free for us, except for the gas for a 1 1/2 hr drive, and freezer bags/paper/foodsaver stuff.

You wouldn't want to see my pantry now, and I don't know if I'll get around to organizing, lol.

Pasta dishes are great for white beans. Also, white chili and white bean/sweet potato/sausage/kale soup ROCKS!

The berry co-op I've done twice now, and plan to always do!

You are so organized w/tracking your spending. I aspire to be more like that this year. I have no idea what really got spent on groceries in 2009.



I have pork stock made from pig bones being strained by my dd in the kitchen right now. It is super rich and concentrated because it's been simmering for 2 days. We will chill it down and make soup for supper w/odds and ends of veggies. Will make home made tortillas and have leftover salad with the soup.

I can't help there, but I can tell you that my family has gone thru a large upright freezer full of pig since March. Plus half of a side by side freezer full. We are almost out, just in time for rabbit/goat/more pig butchering.

There is a possibility that we'll get a whole cow (old, has no teeth and they don't want to hand feed her--my mom's neighbor has a cattle ranch), gutted and quartered soon. All (!) we have to do is go stay up all night grinding it, lol. But that's like 150 pounds of ground beef for us--we would divide it between 3 families). Plus my mom has a goat for us to butcher in exchange for our help butchering 3 others for their freezer. Thankfully my mom just bought a commercial grinder, and we have an awesome hand crank one.

Also, we discovered a wild beehive in our cabin in the woods. It must have swarmed from the old tree on my neighbor's property. We've got a beekeeping book, and my parents will get their old beekeeping gear to us, and we'll try to encourage the bees into a new hive. We may soon have plenty of honey!

I was going to make spaghetti pie for dinner, but we have no spaghetti noodles-- only soba noodles. Any ideas for me?

Asian noodle soup? Asian noodle stir fry? Spaghetti w/soba noodles? How about experimenting and making Asian Spaghetti? Ooooh....My wheels are turning....

And FWIW, this is a fantastic recipe and great for using up sooooo many odds and ends (sushi is good for that too!) of veggies/meats/wine....

Depends on how often you cook, eat out, what you cook, and who is eating it.

We like to entertain at least once a month. That could mean having the neighbors over and us and all the kids eat, a dinner party or a big blow out family party. Depending on the month and time of year, we plan for this. We have dd1's commonion in May, we plan on having about 40 people over for the celebration. We will cook a 2-3 roasts for roast beef sandwiches to give you an idea. We will also have pulled pork.

My side of beef literally lasts the entire year. We just finished out the supply and are picking up the new supply in mid January. We will eat more of the steaks in the summer w/ exception and we plan on eating more roasts in the winter and fall months. The 75 plus lbs of hamburger will get eating at least once a week.

I think if we had more adult eaters or sons who can eat a lot it might be different. A neighbor with 4 sons buys a full beef and uses it up in a year.

I laid out the costs in my OP for the meat cost up front. Spread out over the year I avg what it would cost.

I'm doing a pantry challenge this month, too.

Tonight is grillades, made with creole sauce I canned last summer (best thing ever--it makes meals sooo easy---too bad it's the last jar). We'll eat it over mashed potatoes instead of grits, just cause we have more potatoes than grits right now.

Tomorrow, I'm planning on split pea soup with some ham leftover from Christmas that I froze. We'll have cornbread muffins with that.

Great thread for meal ideas using pantry staples!

I made a menu today for the next while using stuff from the pantry so I guess I belong here. lol

We haven't gotten out of the house (well aside from numerous trips out to play, sled, skate, etc) since Dec 30 so we're off to a good start.

I have a really short shopping list (like 6 things I think?), we get a weekly basket of veggies and are expecting a buying club order next week.

does anybody happen to know how long the Pacific Islands boxed organic free-range broth really lasts? i just found quite a bit that expired in august 2009 but i'd hate to throw it out if it was still good just because of the date stamp. so far, the ones i've opened seem to taste OK.

speggetti pie? Recipe?


Also, as far as the broth. Take whiff, smell ok? Boil it and then try to check taste.

We ate soup for lunch, and will eat the rest for lunches tomorrow.

We are having baked oatmeal w/my stash of oats, li'l smokie sausages I bought on sale during the holiday season, boiled eggs (we always have plenty of eggs), and a berry crisp for supper. We'll use up some fresh milk in and on the oatmeal. I have an abundance of both cow and goat milk in the fridge. I had a neighbor give us a gallon of goat milk last night, and I had just bought a gallon of organic cow milk at the store. I also had a gallon in the fridge. Maybe I'll see if my other neighbor wants some...

I think I'll whip up some peanut butter granola w/some of those oats, too.

I also think we'll have sushi rolls and spring rolls both tomorrow night. I have a bunch of nori and sushi rice and spring rolls sittin' around. I also have a ton of frozen ginger root. And fish sauce. Good grief, maybe I'll make a soup, too....My dh will be happy as a clam tomorrow night for sure!

Had a tube of crescent roll mix in my fridge. Not sure where it came from, but I think at a playdate last week someone brought to make something that wasnt made. Rolled up hot dogs and DH and dd2 ate for lunch. Greasy!

Tonight salad with chopped up various lots of things to get rid of. I will also grill some chicken to chop up as well.


DD2 requested I make a bannana bread yesterday. I have 2 bannanas perfect for the job too!

We went to chipotle today, under $10 for me and the kiddies. It's been a rough few days (had to stay at the IL's due to no heat).

Other than that I've been solid. So I'm not going to worry about it.

You could call the company and ask if it's an expiry or best by date. Expiry I wouldn't touch, best by, I would probably give it a whiff and if it didn't look weird or something I could roll with it.
