I'm really impressed with this book because it lays it out step by step literally! ALL I had to do was take the book with me (or write down a list) and buy all the ingredients for the first month's recipe plan. Check this out, it even lists them by section you are in the grocery store. So no hopping around the store because you forgot something back in the dairy section. Just remember that you are using your full money allotment for groceries.
By the way, they didn't send me this book to review, I bought it on my own out of desperation for some extra free time with my family. Yesterday I did all the chopping and today I'll be actually cooking and putting all the meals together to label and freeze. My fridge is packed full so this has to be done today.
Anyway, I'll be cooking all day so if any of my family comes to visit, you can find me in a kitchen! LOL.
I'm really focusing on Character Qualities at home so let me see if I can find one that applies. Hmmmm..... Got it. I found a few! I'll explain why.
1. Orderliness vs. Disorganization
Preparing myself and my surroundings so that I will achieve the greatest efficiency
1 Corinthians 14:40
(This one because I'll have less cleanup and everything is planned a month in advance. Less cleanup means more free time with my family.)
2. Hospitality vs. Loneliness
Cheerfully sharing food, shelter, and spiritual refreshment with those God brings into my life.
(This one because some of these meals serve more than my family size so inviting someone or a family over will be a cinch. I love good fellowship and it could really help someone to reach out to them. This way the food is prepared and I can just relax with them.)
3. Creativity vs. Under-achievement
Approaching a need, a task, an idea from a new perspective
