This Week's Grocery Trip and Menu Plan for $28.65, plus God Provides Fresh Produce and Meat!

Getting ready to cook up some zucchini that was given to us! My one year old loves zucchini!

My grocery trip this week, totaling $28.65.

We have had some wonderful provisions lately from friends and family that has really helped our grocery budget! Several farming friends and gardening neighbors have given us extra produce over the past couple weeks (such a delicious blessing), plus we came home from our week away to a freezer stocked full of MEAT as well as some other goodies from Jesse's parents, and, while we were in the mountains, my parents bought us a whole bunch of groceries. God certainly provides.

I'm hopeful that we should come in under our grocery budget this month, which would be wonderful since we have been over the past couple months. Here is our gluten-, dairy-, egg-, nut-, tomato-, soy-free, and organic (when possible) grocery shopping trip and menu plan for the week, totaling $28.65:

Oatmeal for me, Five Grain Cereal or Cheerios for the kids, and Fried Rice with Dates/Raisins for Jesse

Salad for Jesse and I
Almond butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids on homemade bread
Carrot sticks
Apples with almond butter

Baked salmon with sauteed zucchini and rice
Chicken stir fry with peppers, garlic, onion, zucchini, carrots, and lime over rice
Sausages with sweet potato fries and kale chips
Sweet potato, sausage and kale soup with easy homemade veggie broth
Hamburger and green bean casserole over rice

Fruit bar popsicles
Marshmallows or suckers for the kids
Chocolate chips... see that bag in the picture... yep, that's for me. Maybe it will last longer than one week (my sweet tooth can't go too long without chocolate, and gluten-free makes it a little harder to find acceptable treats)!
Our version of Sopapillas (we fry corn tortillas and then add honey/powdered sugar on top)
Rice pudding
