Sunday lunch

today we split a small pork medallion, then we had some squash, zuccini(sp?), and onions that were put on the grill, plus 1 small slice of 100% whole wheat bread(with less sugar). It was pretty good. We used to have casseroles that were tasty but not good for us. It is hard to make yourself to eat veggies with no melted cheese or loaded with cream of mushroom/chicken soup.

Trying to jump start this blog

I know there are tons of frugal blogs out there and for sure I am no expert. Now throw in a big monkey wrench like my dh being diagnosed with diabetes this month and saving money on stuff like groceries takes a big turn. Now, let's face it, many coupons are for processed foods, or junk food like chips-which I love love love. Rarely do I see anything for fresh produce and now that is what we have to purchase more of. So................we have been to the farmer's market the past 2 Sundays after church. Purchased items such as blueberries, apples, squash, zuchini, new potatoes. We spend less there because we are not purchasing in bulk but buying what we think we will be able to eat in a relatively short time. I know, I know bulk buying is one of the core things with frugality but we have a tendency to let produce go bad. Hopefully by buying less, we will actually get to eat it before it goes bad.
What do you guys think?
