Weekly Meal Roundup

Typical breakfast at the Ueda-Moore household - organic War Eagle Mill oatmeal with War Eagle Mill flaxmeal, organic raisins & Arkansas honey and bee pollen.

Mixed berry smoothie made with Arkansas berries & milk

Kimchee soup made with AR pork, kimchee, green onions & shiitake mushrooms (hidden under the soup)

Organic udon with Japanese curry made with Arkansas beef & potatoes

What a week! It started with my being sick with 101 degree F temperature and ended with a snow storm. I made a fairly quick recovery from my illness, thanks to eating healthy. Nothing like Arkansas berries and their antioxidants to get me back on my feet.

Today, Eddy and I did our Once-a-Month shopping. Our total for the month of February came to be less than $80. That includes two of my medications! Of course, Eddy and I buy from online food clubs every week, but we rarely buy more than $30-worth of food each week.

How do we do it? By cooking from scratch and eating from our pantry and deep freeze. Interested in eating locally on cheap next winter? I recommend investing in a harvest preservation book and an energy efficient deep freeze. I plan to write posts about them in the near future, so stay tuned!

And now, here is the roundup for this past week.

  1. Mmmmm… Can I move in?

  2. Nao,

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better!

    I too am amazed how little we’re spending on groceries this year after a successful gardening/canning/freezing season. Down to averaging $68/ week from $125 just 4 years ago, and that’s including inflation! Thanks to co-op and eating at home too.

    Spa City Co-op has a new Market Manager, Wanda Magee. Her intro is here:
