This month, the Eat Well, Spend Less crew returns with the Back to Basics edition. For many of us, January was a do-over of sorts or a way to refocus on the spending, cooking, and eating goals that might fall by the wayside during the busy holidays.
Mandi from Life…Your Way is a learn-it kind of girl. I love it how she tackles mastering the unknown. In her post How to Cook from Scratch When You Don’t Know How she shares a recipe for Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies as well as some hard-earned wisdom on how to cook.
Katie from Kitchen Stewardship’s post, How to Boil a Husband, is a fun story of winning her husband over to a better way of eating. She’s quite persuasive that girl. I well remember when my own husband’s doctor warned him about his blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Katie was a wealth of info to me and gets some of the credit for steering us in a better way of eating.
As for me, well, we ate down the Pantry. The month of January was an endless game of Chopped. Thankfully, my husband says that I move on to the next round. We ate well, and we spent less. Be sure to read 7 Lessons Learned from a Pantry Challenge in case you missed it.
