A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I was afraid that there would be a food shortage. On Friday, I was reading on the MSNBC website that there will be a food shortage across the world and that food prices will go up. Then when I got off of work I was shocked how empty so many of the shelves and coolers were at Krogers. I noticed this before Christmas as well.
People were practically pushing each other out of the way to get to things on the shelves first. I had never seen people act this way before in a grocery store. I have to admit that it is making me nervous and makes me want to be on a farm even more and be more self-sufficient. I am working on that goal now. We found 45 acres and our plan is to sell our home that we have now and move within the year. We just have to do a few repairs and upgrades on our current home now before we list it to sell.
Now that we have decided that moving to a farm is in our finances I can’t make things move fast enough. In reality it will be about a year or so before we make it there. There isn’t a house built on it yet so we have to do that too. Luckily Mike is a contractor. hehehe Within 5 minutes of him telling me the farm was ours I presented him with the blueprints that I had picked out. Luckily he loved this one too. 🙂
I promise to try not to bore everyone with the farm talk. :::sigh::: I want to move. hehehe Now back to groceries and this weeks menu. I am trying to save money for the move and am making my grocery budget even tighter. I am keeping it all in a spreadsheet and am coming up with unique ways to eat low carb and save money at the same time. I will share that along the way. I think with the economy the way it is we all need to find ways to save.
This week I will be having 2 of the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins and a low carb yogurt for breakfast. This will come to 10 carbs per meal.
My dinners will consist of the following:
Sunday- Beer Chicken with vegetables
Monday- left over Beer Chicken with vegetables.
Tuesday- Enchilada Pie
Wednesday- Left over Enchilada Pie
Thursday- Mike has requested sausage again. This comes in handy too since I get one day off from cooking because he does it. 🙂
Friday- California Turkey Burgers
Saturday- left over California Turkey Burgers
My vegetables for the week will include:
- green, red and yellow peppers
- green beans
