A dilemna

Well, its not a big deal, but it is! I was shorted my vacation money from work, by accident and was told I could get the money or keep the days to use later. I chose the later, but now we have $80 or less to live on for 10 days. I'm pretty sure we can do it, but it will be tight. We have plenty of food, not enough fresh vegetables, but we will manage. So, it is my challenge to myself to come up with meals from the food in the freezer. I do a lot better in the winter because I can make some pretty great meals in the crockpot, but summer is more of a challenge for me. I made a big batch of Taco salad for lunch, so there's tomorrow's night meal. I have bacon, so Tuesday night can be BLT's. It's just timing and getting my stuff together the night before or thinking it through, so I will keep on the refrigerator what the next meal will be. Have you ever done this?? I do it a lot if we have overnight guest, but Gordon is easy to cook for and anything goes as long as he doesn't have to cook it, how would you like your peanut butter sandwich, boiled or fried??? That's his comeback all the time!!! Any suggestions?? Blessings to you all!!!

  1. Wow...great challenge, Earlene. My go-to's during tight times are soups, chili, stir-fry. I cook up bigger batches and have left-overs for the fridge or freezer. Plus, frozen vegetables, grains and beans are much cheaper.
    Good Luck! Let us know how it goes.
