Thankful & Grateful: Well Stocked!

I can’t believe I forgot to mention this! As I said in my previous post, my parents came to visit us on Saturday. When they arrived, they brought in (with our help) bag after bag of groceries. After saying hello, I began unpacking bags. They filled our pantry to the brim:

And not only the pantry, my father bought us a large assortment of fruits and vegetables:

I’m not 100% on how to cook cabbage and we are going to be visiting Ry’s parents at the end of the week. My plan is to eat fresh veggies and fruit with every meal! For breakfast we had a side of cherries and lunch a side of raspberries and baby carrots with fresh lettuce on our sandwiches.

Tonight, I have leftovers planned with a fruit filled dessert.

We are truly blessed! The car repairs while reduced, were more than we had saved. That cuts into food money for us parents! Luckily, this happened the same week! Like I said, truly blessed!

(And that voice of the past is being pushed down by the present, I assure you!)

      Lol it’s Dinty Moore and its beef stew! It’s terribly bad for you (lots of sodium) but oh so tasty! A lot if the food pictured is what poorer families purchase cause we can afford a lot. It is though filled with preservatives, dyes, lots of sodium, sugars, and of course fat! But as I said it is very tasty, so we have to eat carefully!

        DINTY?! Oh wow I misread that one!
        Scummy food – ah I remember when I kept eating these packet noodles. I can understand the need to eat carefully round certain foods!

        Indeed! The way to make scummy food better- add lots of veggies and drink lots of water! It helps 🙂 and it stretches the meal for more people! I can take one box of chili for two and stretch it for 6 with tomatoes, beans, corn etc.! I know how to live with this stuff, I tell you ;)!
