[[ Key Information ]]

Just some FYI for you guys.

As I stated in my first posts, I always give an ideal shoipping list (with prices) and I get this information from a local super market (Giant Food) and sometimes my local Super Wal - Mart. So remember this is just an averaging of prices but I want to give you a rough estimate about how much each meal will cost!

Also with all these recipes, I use an on hand list and it just lists things I always have at the ready. It's not much but it comes in handy, so here it is.

On Hand:

  • Seasoned Italian Bread Crumbs
  • Cooking Spray
  • Canola Oil
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese ( I usually get the store brand...but sometimes if Kraft is on sale, will get that. )
  • Butter ( I always use Blue Bonnet, cheap and tastes good. But also use Land O'Lakes if on sale )
  • 2% Milk
  • Dried Spices ( I usually get mine from the local dollar store (Spice Classic is my favorite brand) but sometimes get the more expensive brand, but usually, just go with the local dollar store! )
  1. Dried Parsley
  2. Dried Onion
  3. Dried Sage
  4. Dried Bay Leaves
  5. Dried Basil
  6. Dried Dill
  7. Dried Italian Seasoning
  8. Dried Garlic
  9. Dried Rosemary
  10. Meat Tenderizer
  11. Seasoned Salt
  12. Cinnamon
  13. Poultry Seasoning
  14. Garlic Salt
  15. Table Salt
  16. Black Pepper
And that's it, I will rarely post these in ideal shopping list, so why I wanted to give you this now!

  2. Hi Ashley, Thanks for joining my blog. I like yours a lot and really appreciate the "shopping list" feature. My grandmother was an Italian immigrant and always careful with her money so I can appreciate where you're coming from.I hope we will exchange info and recipes often!
