im off to make dinner. butternut squash bread, with eggplant cassarole and some yummy fruit pops for desert mmmmmmmmmm

my husband was shot at work a little over a month ago, i work from home but he brought in the bulk he is currently out of work for recovery. if i could get a second job i would but then id be paying daycare which i have priced and the cheapest is $600 a week (unless i want to take them to the "gheeto"sp? and run down paret of town..yea no). i do buy grains, pastas, ect this was from one shoping trip. im not a saint i eat crap food to. this is not a hey look at me its a hey not everyone on fs eats junk like every post in here seems to claim. we are all very healthy, we do eat meats i just have not gone to the farm to purchase any.  there are a million recipes if you just look hard enough!, my fridge is not staged, i have ocd and it always looks like that, i like having things where i can easily get them. we do our own juices, we get fresh milk and other dairy from local farms, but my fil goes out of town every now and then and will give us things like milk, bread, produce, and other things that he thinks will go bad before he gets back. and we plan to be off pa within a couple months.




and as requested

thank my 2yo for the lovely pain job lol. the cola was bought in dec, it was the discontinued white cans and hubs thinks it will be worth somthing someday (hes a colector), valentine treats for the kids, grandpa and daddy, and rice. 

oh no my cheezenip stash and white cheapo bread! sorry i dont turn down free stuff from grandpa lol

HERE YA GO :)




thats only $50 for all those veggies and thats a week - 2 week worth of food! lots of possibilities :)

not everyone buys junk :)

what do youusually buy with fs?

Awesome! Not that I think those on food stamps need to buy certain foods, but it is nice to see anyone making better food choices.

Mommy to a sweet little princess named Saylor, and due with our second little one around July 28th.

Just waiting for the idiots who can't read price tags to chime in whining that they don't get food stamps and need to live off of expensive processed crap instead of buying real food. Makes a nice change to see someone around here who realizes that real food is the better buy.

Looks yummy! I have a taste for caramelized carrots now. We're not on fs, but I like to buy lots of fresh fruits and veggies, too. I like cooking everything from scratch.
