The next two weeks, I am going to be using menus based on a website and a book. As in the menu is on the website, the recipes are from the book. I already owned the book, and really like it; but if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have felt like it was a splurge at less than $15 for the physical book and less than $10 for the ebook.
I am going to be cooking the Winter Challenge Menus, classic version, and I will feel free to modify it to fit my family. For instance, my family always eats homemade pizza once a week. It is becoming a bonding thing for my husband and son. I am inserting it into the weekly menu, but I am using a WAO recipe for it (but the Jamie Oliver dough recipe my husband always uses). We also are not vegetarian, although we don’t eat a lot of meat. But I plan on adding some chuck roast to the chili this week, half a pound will be plenty for 8 servings to give us the flavor of meat while still trying to keep the spirit of WAO.
This week, grocery shopping was pretty normal actually, for us: $92.
