So, this week’s shopping trip is a sneak peek for next week’s posts!
If you’ve been following along the past couple weeks, I’ve been hosting a 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer challenge. And I’ve been making each recipe a week in advance to get the posts ready.
Next week’s posts are all dinner recipes, so I’m making them all this week. And you get to see the behind-the-scenes, so to speak!
Most of these dinners are being doubled, so I had to buy extra ingredients. That means I didn’t have much money to stock up on other things, but I was able to snag a turkey for less than 5 dollars! Highlight of my week right there.
My freezer’s getting pretty full! It’s gonna help a ton in December though, when we’ll be too busy to think about cooking. Not to mention I’ll have lots of money to stock up on things since I won’t be buying ingredients for dinner!
