What to Cook for Dinner?
This week I almost didn’t stop to shop at my favorite local discount grocery store. But I’m so glad I did stop. I found a great deal on organic grapes, at just $.49/lb. We were almost out of grapes, so it was nice to find this great buy.
I also stopped by Fred Meyer and picked up a few staples we were low on, along with some ground beef to make hamburgers for lunch. My son just loves hamburgers and I figured making them at home would be better than grabbing a burger at the drive through.
As you read what I purchased, you might be surprised to find I purchased 10 pounds of diced onions for $1. Now you might wonder what I would do with that much. I put 14 cups of the diced onions into the freezer for future dishes. The rest went into my dehydrator. I’ll use the dehydrated onions for soups and casseroles, as well as making my own onion powder. I love that the onions were diced and ready to use. Saved me a bunch of time.

That brings my total for this week to $61.27. I purchased the ham for our Christmas dinner and I’m hoping to cook the ham bone to make broth for soup. My stock of soup kits has really dwindled in our freezer. I need to restock my stock. 🙂
