Angel Food is Good

It's been a long, exhausting week.

My husband comes home today, but I'm not really happy to see him.

I'm mad at him. And I don't know when I'll stop being mad at him. In fact, mad doesn't really describe it. Disgusted is more like it.

I'm tired. My body hurts. And I have the eighth birthday on Wednesday, not to mention the party on Saturday. Did I mention I was tired?

So this may be my only post this week.

But I couldn't let the week pass without sharing this with you.

Do you know about Angel Food Ministries?

Go ahead, check it out. I'll wait while you see if they have a distribution site in your area. You should really see if they do.

For $55.00, two men loaded two boxes of food into my car. I didn't even have to get out. In those two boxes were:

4--6oz sirloin steaks
2 lb boneless chicken breast
4 boneless pork chops
2 lb chicken nuggets
Salisbury Steak frozen entry
12oz bacon
l lb beef hotdogs
1 lb frozen stir fry veggies
1 lb carrots
32oz Shelf Stable Milk
35 oz Crinkle cut fries
Mac and Cheese box
1 lb rice
1 lb bean soup mix
Dozen eggs
3lb russet potatoes
3 lb sweet potatoes
2lb onions
l lb carrots
1 cabbage
3 lb red delicious apples
2 Anjou pears
1 Pineapple
4 gala apples
4 oranges
and half a vanilla cream bundt cake

But we no longer have the bundt cake because the kids and I ate it all. I didn't feel like sharing it with him.

How cool is that?

I can do alot with that.

But since a grocery list isn't everyone's idea of good blogging, you can check here for my personal grocery game posts.

But I totally won't talk about how I went on a huge shopping spree to drown my aching sorrows last week. I did find some great deals hitting every resale shop in town, but it cost me. Or rather, it cost the husband, but you know, they say shopping makes you feel better. Or it's symptom of depression, or something. I just figured if my husband got to slap down the cash for a last minute plane ticket, the kids and I could have fun at the Lego store. I mean, I'm just saying.

But that doesn't count.

And now we'll go eat pineapple. Before the plane lands.

How did you hear about Angel Food Ministries? It sounds awesome. Unfortunately, there are no host sites in my area. I could SO use something like that here. We spend a fortune feeding our boys and the food never lasts as long as I'd like it to.

I have heard of Angel Food Ministries-it is an awesome program! Wow-did you get a lot of food or what?!? (I would have eaten the cake too-)

I found out about AFM last year sometime and found out they did have a distribution center in Alamogordo (where we used to live in NM) and I wanted to try them out, but never got around to ordering. Are the portion sizes pretty big with the meat etc? And does it taste good? I need to see if there is one around here now that we've moved - thanks for the reminder!

Ahh I know to well about the husband...I will say ..there is hope.My dh has gotten much better.
The AFM sounds wonderful.We don't have one here either.I need to check into the nearest in this area.
I hope this week is a peaceful one for you!

Dawn said...

Cool about the food. Hope you enjoyed your pineapple. :)

Mommy Daisy said...

I love that you ate all the good food without the husband around. Great!

We tried Angelfood Ministries in January. It was OK. Some things we liked, others we didn't. We missed the ordering deadline for February, so we didn't get it then. We started looking at the things we thought we'd like on the list, and we concluded that we could get them cheaper on sale in the stores. I'll agree that the fruit package is a good deal, but we wouldn't be able to eat it fast enough to be worth it. So those are my opinions on AFM.

I am checking that site out NOW.

Hope the birthday goes well. Hope your hubby realizes what an awesome wife you are and gets his ass in gear...

Tracey said...

I am about to cry after reading the AFM site. Thank you so much for posting this today. You have no idea how much of a difference this could make to my family's budget...

Heh. I totally just hid two boxes of Girl Scout cookies because my husband should be living in a dog house right now. Why do they have to do crap?
