Ladies! I am a working mom, wife-to-be, new home owner, and a student! I still have to provide healthy dinners and lunches for my family on a regular basis. What kind of items should I be buying when I grocery shop?
I feel like I need some basic meal starters for sure like onions, garlic, ground beef, some canned soups that can make a good meal base, tomatoes, salad fixings, frozen veggies (fresh spoils too quickly and I like to stock up)... okay so I get all of these things right, and then I read all of these recipes online that call for sherry vinegar, marmalade, whiskey, molasses, all these things I wouldn't typically buy but they look delicious.
Can I get some suggestions for cost effective, fast and efficient meals? Otherwise we are going to be eating Hamburger Helper and steamed broccoli or Bertoli frozen pasta bags for two and salad every night! I don't know how much more pasta I can take! I got some big thick pork chops on sale and now I have no clue what to do with them because they're intimidating and seem like a lot of work.
