Going Grocery Free: Menus and an update

We're on Day 5 of our grocery free challenge, and it's going really well. I haven't felt the urge to rush out to the grocery store, yet.

In fact, not having to grocery shop is rather freeing. I'm happy to mark that chore off my to-do list.

Cooking from my stockpile has required me to plan our meals, something I lectured my husband about this morning when he offered to cook tonight. (Sorry, hon! But if you want to cook tonight, you need to thaw things ahead of time and get things marinating.)

Here's what we've been eating this week, along with the rest of our menus. You can download some nifty weekly meal planners from Mom Advice. Hers are the ones I use.
