Ugh. I guess we actually have to HAVE leftovers for this to work. :) I'm so bad at cooking in the evenings...there is just so much going on. My solution is to use the crockpot. It's a perfect solution. Why don't I do it?

I hear ya! If we would just commit to eating our leftovers, my checking account would definitely be larger!

Good tips!

Those are some good ideas. It is so hard these days not to eat out. I mean for convenience sake it is great. My mother cooked meals every night when I was growing up. I cannot say the same.

2008-06-25T16:17:00.000-04:00

These are all good ideas. I realize that I have to stop spending so much and become more resourceful in the kitchen, especially in regards to my panty. I have tons of food, I just need to think about using it all and not running out for the take out. So, good for you and thanks for encouraging me.

2008-06-25T14:56:00.001-04:00

I totally agree! I have a snack basket in my cupboard and I use one of the produce drawers of my fridge for individually wrapped by me snacks. :) The kids know that those two spots are the places to look for snacks between meals.

I also found that menu planning my breakfasts and lunches that

Groceries have gotten so expensive that I told my family that we are going to eat everything in the house before I go back to the store. Talk about some creative meals...hahaha!

Thanks for stopping by today and leaving me some bloggie love!! Your rainbow photo was beautiful:)

I'll have to look up that oatmeal recipe. I don't have children, but coming from someone who works with children, I think it's great that your kids are learning some independence with meal prep. Good for you!

awesome idea with the prewashed grapes in a bag! i think i need to start doing that so my daugher can help herself with the food!

I usually get tripped up into buying all of those pre-packaged goodies for the kids for lunches. This summer, for day camp, I have had much more fruits and veggies, and buy big bags of snacks that they divide up on shopping day! Works even better-less work for me!



good stuff... I'm on my way to ebay now!

2008-06-25T10:40:00.000-04:00

I have also instituted a set snack time. My kids know that snack is at 3:00. My oldest is 7, he can tell time. The next one down is 4, he can tell 3:00 and the next one down thinks anytime the second hand hits the 3 it's snack time, but he's learning! :) Instituting a set time for snack prevents "I'm hungry, I need a snack, Mom, what's for snack." They know to wait until 3:00 and then I'll

check out CSAs too (community supported agriculture) where you sign up for a box of produce that is delivered to you, or near you, every week. then you never have to take the time to go shopping for that part of your food, and you always have fruits and veggies. added bonus: my box for 2-3 people costs $12 a week and we get 7 to 9 different things per week sometimes including growing things, like

Now, why didn't I think of that!? Thanks for the tip. Come see my cell phone alternative:

2008-06-25T09:34:00.000-04:00

I'm always amazed at what I can whip up when I insist the cupboards are "bare." I usually discover, like you did, that there is plenty of stuff there for a decent meal. It always surprises me!

Thanks for the link to the oatmeal recipe -- I'm going to give that a try.

2008-06-25T09:07:00.000-04:00

Good for you for making do! I've come up with some strange dishes in my pantry raids, but some have stuck as family favorites. Saves on gas and overspending from being in a rush too. Thanks for the reminder!

2008-06-25T08:42:00.000-04:00

Very resourceful of you! We're going to all have to start being a little more creative with dinners. Eating healthier also cuts medical costs in the long and short run because our immune systems are stronger and we avoid those chronic illnesses that crop up as we age.

Great WFMW! Keep up the good work!

2008-06-25T03:54:00.000-04:00

I'm so glad the oatmeal mix worked for you!! And chocolate chips - hello - why didn't I think of that?

I totally agree, we sometimes go overboard with the prepackaged snacks. I bought little baby snack containers and used them for my snacks (before having our son) and now I do the same thing for him.

I just bag up little mixes of cereal and bulk items I can get at the store. It's just as easy. If there is anything he doesn't like I just don't include it next time and he doesn't miss
