Square One

February 10, 2013

A friend of mine recently told me that the only advice her mother ever gave her was this, “get comfortable with square one – you’re going to be visiting it often.”

This week has been all about square one for Team Clark.  We spent more than we should have the previous week, bought groceries for a Super Bowl shindig (let’s be honest, the menu is always going to be the most important part of the event) and didn’t save a single receipt.  Therefore …. no grocery shopping this past week. 

Our saving grace may have been that Rob spent the weekend with teenagers from church, on a youth group retreat, and brought home the leftover groceries – sandwich fixings, bread and milk.  All things considered, we’ve managed to get creative and eat pretty well!

Some things that we’ve eaten lately:

Fish and Chips (New Basics Cookbook recipe, made with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour 

Turkey Wild Rice Casserole (when I cook wild rice I do a lot at a time, freezing the extra) 

Taquitos (this recipe, using this taco meat), Spanish rice and refried beans

Pasta with Bolognese sauce 

We’ve also been eating a lot of homemade Greek yogurt (recipe to come, soon) with granola. My 13 year old has become the granola making expert in the family!

This week we will be back in business again, planning carefully and sticking to the list.  Bad (and expensive!) things happen when we don’t plan our menus and grocery lists!
