We are a HAPPY FAMILY..our kitchen is STOCKED

Sunday, July 28, 2013

We have actually struggled with out diets for the past two weeks due to our low income(temporary,of course). I've been really worried about what we were eating because there had been days where a fruit nor veggie touched our lips,and the thought truly sickened me because we have growing children.

I found myself making boxes of gelatin,pudding and even cupcakes YES CUPCAKES that we had in the pantry just to make sure the kids had SOMETHING to snack on while hubby and I were at work. emoticon

But now this temporary situation is over. I shopped Thursday evening for groceries to get us through until my hubbie gets paid next week. And my parents suprised me and took me to the grocery store again when I got off work and bought us about $150 worth of was like Christmas!!! Watermelons,strawberries,peach
es,bannanas,tomatoes,salad kits,granola bars,healthy cereals,chicken,salmon,ground beef,fresh corn,fresh green beans.....and gallons of milk and orange juice. IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hear ya! It can be really hard to eat right when money's tight, I can't imagine how hard it is with children. Glad to hear your fridge is stocked now!

    Thank goodness you were blessed with such wonderful parents to help out in those times of need. Glad your pantry is full of good foods for you and your family. Times can get a bit rough sometimes...I know there has been times when my husband and I had to eat Ramen Soup for a few meals....we do what we have to do!! emoticon emoticon

    You made it through! I too have a huge sweet tooth, so know the temptation of sweets. I have learned that the occasional indulgence has its place in my nutritional plan.

It must feel great now that you have all these healthy choices stocked in your home, for all of you!

    What a wonderful surprise from your parents. That's great! I'm 75 and when I was newly married, my parents gave me $20.00 and we got a weeks groceries, a couple packs of cigarettes and kitty food and had change left. My how times have changed!
Best wishes with your job situation. I'll add you to my "help my friends" prayer list.

    God bless you, my friend! emoticon I am in a similar situation but I don't have children at home; just me and my cats. I know how hard it is. God bless with your jobs and home.
Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon emoticon
