This is one of those weeks were the check book is practically empty, the fridge is pretty empty and the freezer prospects aren't that reassuring either.
I was just about to completely panic.
Then I went to church today, heard a wonderful message, fellowshipped with some great people and I took a deep breath found my center and things don't look that hateful after all. PTL!!!
Before church I was thinking to myself omgosh I don't know how we are going to make it through this week.
Then I came home, took a good long look at what we have on hand and thought, huh! why am I worried?, I just have to get a little creative and this is cake!! Why I was worried in the first place I don't know. It will take a little work but we will be completely fine and dh gets paid on friday and I will be able to grocery shop then so...panic?? GONE!!!
I think the fear of a low checkbook is what started my panic. But having the pantry is more than going to make this ok!! Its far what it should be, way far like pluto kind of far from what it should be but there is enough to get us through this little hiccup and for that I am grateful!!!
I might not have a vast assortment of meats to work with but I can get creative and make some pretty great meals with what we do have and dh gets paid on Friday so crisis averted!!
Just concretes the idea of stocked pantry for me!! Of course mine needs help, as in I need to be better stocked, better prepared but I'm getting there and am grateful for what we do have available to use!!
How bout you?? Do you have a stocked pantry?? What's your favorite thing to stock?? Whats your go to meal when money is tight???
