to my weekly roundup of the past week's eats. I prefer to
report what we ate in the last week,
rather than what we're
planning to eat in the
coming week. Why? The
reason is pretty simple:
although I usually have a
general idea of what we're
going to eat in the next
week or so, life often
unfolds a little differently
than planned, and I
adjust my menu plan on a
near-daily basis to accommodate
leftovers and other
circumstances. I find
this is the easiest way
to ensure that I minimize
our family's food waste. I'm
also willing to admit
that I'm a rather
spontaneous cook, given to
preparing foods that strike
me as the most appealing
thing to eat right here and
now! If you'd like a whole book full of inexpensive, quick and kid-approved recipes,check out my book, Cheap
Appétit : The Complete Guide to Feeding
Your Family for Less Than $400 a Month
(While Eating Better Than You Ever Thought
Possible) on Amazon (Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon UK) and Barnes and Noble.
It's gotten multiple 5 star reviews!! I've
included page references to recipes that are in the
book in my menu plans so you can locate them quickly.

Want to know more about the specific food products I use and where I buy them? Check out my new"What's In My Pantry" board on Pinterest. I will keep this board updated with current information on what
products we use, where we're buying them, and how much we're paying. It's a work-in-progress, and you can find it HERE.
