This Southern Girl's Kitchen

I have been asked several times in the last few months to share my meal planning shananigans.  While planning how I feed my family {these folks like to eat} is something I almost do instinctively, I have become aware of how it may not come so naturally to other moms out there.  I am certainly no Giada or Pioneer Woman, but I do find myself to fall somewhere between Caroline Ingalls and Minnie Jackson {from The Help} with a little Paula Deen streak...especially when it comes to the amount of butter I keep stocked in my refrigerator.  I cook 3 meals a day for my family and try my best to do so in the most cost effective way I know how...the way my Mom and my Grandmother taught me.  I shop the local sales and plan my meals around them.  I even plan our snacks and make most everything from scratch.  That makes meals super cheap and super yummy!!!  I am unsure if this will be helpful to anyone else out there, but several ladies in my church have asked me to share, so I thought sharing here may prove to be helpful to you too!!

So for the next few weeks, Lord willing, I am going to tell you more than you probably ever wanted to know.  I will do my best to give you a run down of how I do things over here and finish up with some of my tried and true recipes that I cook over and over and over again.  I hope this may shed some light on a new way of thinking about groceries, grocery shopping, and meals, and may even show you ways to slash your grocery bill...hey who knows!!!!

The first post will come this weekend and will be a breakdown of my pantry...what I keep stocked, what I never buy, and how just a few things will secure meals for you when you are out of time and money!!!

Sadly, my pantry does not look like this....

Too bad huh???  I will give you a sneak peak of my not so lovely pantry next time!!!

Hope you come back!!!
