I've been really trying to lower our grocery bill, mainly by using up what I have on hand. It's sometimes easier to make a repeat than find a new recipe.
This week I made Sweet-Sour Pork on Rice. I noticed I had just enough peach preserves languishing in the fridge to make this, a green pepper, and everything else I needed. You can use peach, apricot or pineapple preserves in this recipe.
I made a loose version of Cheeseburger Macaroni which my son declared the best stuff ever. I used some ground turkey that needed to be used up since I had lazily thrown it in the freezer right in the pillow pack. I used macaroni and I had a smidgen of mozzarella left over from making pizza last week that I used on top. (Picture is not from this week.)
Last night I spent less than $90 in the grocery store (with the 5-year old tagging along too). That's a miracle. I can't tell you the last time I spend under $100 on my main shopping trip.
