Meal planning is a great way to save money on groceries and you won't be standing in front of the fridge at 4pm, wondering what to make!

Boy what a summer! We've been busy enjoying our time off, visiting my parents, then hubby's mom and sister. We came home last week, but we are having to face a huge change in our lives. So things have been stressful and will be for a while. I'm hoping we can enjoy the last month or so of summer vacation, but this is not a summer I would ever want to repeat.
Despite our misfortune, we still need to eat and I desperately need to save money, so I'll be cooking from the freezer and pantry, only buying fresh fruits/veggies, milk, eggs and bread. Here is what I have planned for the week
- Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas (new recipe)
- Grilled Shrimp Cocktail with a green salad
- Potato Enchiladas (new recipe), with grilled corn
- Steak and Potato Salad
- homemade sub sandwiches with potato salad
