We spend far too much on food and we are fatties. Nothing but the best cheese or pate for DH. ...etc

But all of you have persuaded me that except for fresh milk for pre-school grandkids, I will use stores for a week. I always over-buy food. I have heaps of food, without shopping at all this week.

We are growing lettuce and bokchoy so when I run out of veggies, (not likely) I'll still have garden stuff till next Friday. Isn't it lucky I went to the bakery at 7.30 a.m. to pick up our fresh Challah for Friday night dinner? That was before I read all your entries.

Now I'll just settle down and plan a week with what I've got.

Thanks for the kick in the pants to get going on this...

Big Momma
