Great ideas...

So a big part of our budget for me is the grocery bill. We are trying to save money but still eat great. One of the blogs I follow is this one and she is the author of two books. I own her other one and loved it and I just got this one on Amazon for like $12.00 and it arrived yesterday. I haven't read it from cover to cover yet...but we made zucchini bread today using her recipe and it was delicious. And her blog today explained how to freeze corn. We bought a dozen ears at the farmers market last Sunday and the week got away from us and we still had too much left. So I used 6 ears of corn and followed her easy directions and froze two meals of corn (2 cups and 3 cups). Which cost us 2.00 for the half dozen of what a deal! This winter we will enjoy some corn for $1.00 a bag! I also froze some of our bread that we made today. Her book has lots of easy recipes and a ton of great ideas for saving money with the groceries. Her ideas make sense and I am pumped to implement more of them. We are hitting a farmers market tomorrow morning so that we can freeze a little more corn...and maybe something else!

Do you freeze or can anything that helps stock up for the winter? How do you save money grocery shopping?

I want to see this book. I always make chili and freeze it. I should freeze leftover spagetti sauce because it ends up going to waste when I don't reheat it in a day or two. Last st. patty's day we made twice baked potatoes and froze those (and used green food coloring) ha. usually when we buy a bag of potatoes, 1/2 of it goes to waste b/c we don't eat them that often. but yeah---i'd like to see that book. oh yeah and i buy chicken on the bone and boil it to use in soups-it goes further and is moist compared to the chicken breast. then i add tonnnnns of veggies to it-and freeze it for lunches. YUM. RR
