I don’t typically shop at the warehouse clubs because …

What's Cookin: 11/9

After close to Free Oatmeal this week (thanks to the Publix Penny Item), I’m back to lots of oatmeal for breakfast.

Monday's Menu Plan: July 13, 2009

This month, we’ve challenged ourselves not to go grocery shopping. Well, let me clarify. We’re getting ready to leave for a family roadtrip back to Florida this week, so we knew we only had about 15 days to challenge ourselves to eat out of our stockpile. Sometimes I get so focused on saving and stockpiling that I forget to stop …

This week I’ve decided I really want to find some fresh, local produce to incorporate into my meals, so if anyone knows some good farms in Nashville, please let me know!
