The van ate my grocery money....

Well, it didn't REALLY eat it... but we had a ball joint go out on the van and since my husband drives that vehicle to work, it has to be fixed. So, once again, we are living from the pantry (mostly). I am almost out of eggs and milk so that will have to be replaced. Oh, and dog food--although after the garden incident I'm thinking twice about that. (Just kidding--don't post about how horrible I am for not feeding my dogs!)
So after a quick look-see thru the pantry and freezer, I have found some recipes on AR that will get us through. I am especially looking forward to trying FOODGU1's Szechwan Shrimp. The recipe has great reviews and sounds wonderful. Luckily I have a bag of shrimp in the freezer, but I'm thinking one could use about any meat on hand. We have the first broccoli from the front garden in and so that would go well with the shrimp. It is also a very healthy recipe.
Speaking of healthy recipes-we are trying to change our lifestyle in regards to being healthy. My husband, myself, and now my daughter are all diabetic or pre-diabetic so nutrition has become very important in our house. How that is going to pan out with a $60/wk grocery budget remains to be seen and I am always open to tips and suggestions.
