How this swap was organized:

  • 3 out of the 4 of us met in the beginning of February to plan out most of the menu. We decided that each gal would choose 2 meals to prepare for the group. With 4 of us participating we would each receive 8 meals.
  • In picking our meals we chose a variety of beef, chicken and pork dishes.
  • We met on a Tuesday and swapped 8 days later.
  • Maggie totaled the quantities of all ingredients and made up two shopping lists.   One for Amity which consisted of about half the meat and produce and spices. Maggie’s list was half the meat and canned items. 
  • Amity and I did the shopping (for group members who live here closeby).
  • Amanda did the shopping and prepping of her two meals since she lives across town.
  • The photo above shows the food at the swap.
