If you don't do a meal plan, how do you know what to buy at the store?

This is awesome and DH doesn't get it at all so I hope you will lol. For months I've looked for yum yum at walmart and they've never had it. So I gave up and went to get ingrediants for it bc I've really been craving it and OMG they had it at Walmart. I was pumped and DH thought I was nuts. But this is the link of the one I was planning on making

I used to go get it at the Fuji's but we never used it all and it seemed gross to keep it

Most recipes have very basic common ingredients for the base, I find.



I have a ridiculous amount of condiments and spices lol

The afternoon arrives and we wonder what we want, them go out and buy the ingredients. But that way probably adds up to cost more. Or we always have eggs, chicken, steak, vegetables, in the house then buy what we want to go with those.

I looove my SO and his family. I rarely buy any meat, and he is putting a garden in my backyard this week and next. The "what do you want for dinner" usually constitutes going to the deep freezer and pulling out some fish or venison. DS (who is 2) was so excited last night because we ate some crappie that he caught himself, he was so proud lol
When I want to make something with beef, I usually just steal from my parents' house because they get a cow butchered every year or so and have a freezer full.
