Let’s get cooking!

So I'm going to start blogging about my kitchen :)

Freezer cooking has been a hobby of mine for about 7 years now, but I'm planning on taking my grocery shopping a lot more seriously in 2010 and I'm looking for ways to drive down my grocery bill! Thus my renewed, somewhat more serious interest in freezer cooking.

Here's what I bought today (all on sale using price match at Walmart):

Item Original Price Sale Price
Boneless Pork Chops 9.61 4.00
Whole Pork Loin 11.74 8.72
Split Chicken Breasts 9.77 4.35
Pork Butt Roast 7.33 5.26
Whole Chicken 5.34 4.31
Whole Chicken 5.13 4.13
Whole Chicken 5.49 4.42
Sirloin Tip Roast 14.03 9.76
Frozen Chicken Breast (boneless, skinless) 6.48 5.18
Yellow Onions 2.28 1.88
Total Cost 77.36 52.01
Total Savings   25.35

Wow! A savings of $25.35- that’s something to get excited about! I probably spent 15 minutes this morning going through the store ads for the other stores and then it took me an extra 5 minutes at the check out to have the cashier adjust the prices. Not bad for 20 minutes worth of work!

So now to the recipes. What do I do with all this meat? Give me some time and I’ll let you know :)
