My dh and I went grocery shopping over the weekend. We are determined to go three months without going to the store. We will get our milk from the dairy near our house and may go to the specialty store near my work for bananas and apples. Other than that we are buckling down and doing without. I made a menu for one month and intend to just cycle through it. This is my first time buying for this long, so I’m sure I will have to get creative come month three.~Smile
This week’s menu:
Monday: Tuna Casserole with homemade bread
Tuesday: Scrambled Eggs with Toast
Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff
Thursday: Tamale Pie
Friday: Chicken Rotel with ww tortilla
Saturday: Stir-Fry with Brown Rice
We are going to try to start making our Sundays more of “a day of rest.” It’s really tough when you work all week and have a small farm. We really need both our days to get caught back up. However, we want this to be “family day.” A day we spend time together, rest, relax, and preparing for a new week.
My dh and I helped work Dad’s lambs over the weekend. Approximately 300 of the little darlings. We used a sore mouth vaccination which is a live vaccine and not once, not twice, but about a million times did I get it smeared on my face or splattered with it as the little critter shook their heads. I have eight days before I’m in the clear, so wish me luck. From what I’ve heard it’s very painful and from the looks of sore mouth on the sheep, I know I don’t want it on my face. Ugh! However all of Dad’s and all of our’s are vaccinated, docked, etc. Now they just have to grow up to be big healthy sheep.
One last thing before I close. I would like to ask everyone to pray for the people of Greensburg, Kansas. I had a friend, his wife, and their three year old daughter who lived there. They lost everything! Their home, their cars, and all their belongings. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
