Menu Plan: June 28 - July 4


This is what a two to three month grocery trip for a family of 10 looks like. (You can only see part of the bag past the blue freezer bag, but it's there, and there are two other freezer bags that aren't as visible behind the cooler).

We did our big Spokane trip yesterday, though we got a later start than we planned. Our goal had been to leave by 8:30, and it was closer to 10:30. We arrived home at about 6:45 and did the big unload of groceries, making sure the freezers were inventoried properly as things went in them, and made dinner. This is why you shouldn't glare at a big family for shopping big. Some of this will last a couple months, some of it will last just this week or the next. As we do not have a Fred Meyer, a Cash and Carry, a Trader Joe's, or any Arabic markets here, we go every two to three months and stock up quite a bit. We bring a cooler, insulated freezer bags, loads of freezer packs and take almost the whole day.

Anyway, the delightful surprises on this trip were that my favorite kosher salt which has been unavailable for the past three months was at the Cash and Carry, so I bought five five pound boxes, and that I found prepackaged shabboura at one of the Arab markets. Only plain, but still it was there, and I bought two large packages. We also found a nine ounce bottle of Aleppo pepper at almost half the price of what I normally pay.

What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.
