My experiment with meal planning for an entire month was a huge success so I've planned out the month of August!
We did have a few hiccups in our plan. Our oven died halfway through the month but thanks to my obsession with the slow cooker, I was able to adapt some recipes to it. We ended up ordering dinner out two more times that I had anticipated because of the oven but hey, things happen!
I saved almost $350 on food this month which ummm is good since we need that money to go toward the purchase of a new oven. Fun? Just an FYI, oven shopping is terribly boring and the salespeople get excited about things like steam cleaning features. So this shopping adventure has been terribly un-riveting.
Without further adieu, here is my August meal plan! Along with these meals, I'll also be doing some canning and jam making. I love all the August fruits and vegetables.
