School’s back in and we are trying to get back into the same old routine. I thoroughly enjoyed staying home with the kids during the holidays (and my husband when he was off). I finally felt like I had it together! Now, I’m looking forward to the summer break!
I planned our meals for the week and I am saving so much money by doing that. I used to stop by the grocery store every day when I got out of school. I would spend $20 or $30 a day! It was getting totally ridiculous! Now, I’m only shopping on the weekend, after my meals are planned for the next week.
When I picked the kids up yesterday, Chase asked if we were going to the grocery store. I proudly said “Nope! There will be no more after-school grocery store trips! Grocery shopping will be done only on the weekend!” Then he asked if we could have Hamburger Helper for supper. Again, my reply was “Nope.” I told him he’d have to put in a request for next week since this week’s meals are already planned :)
I know I'm already a couple of days into the week, but here's this week's menu:
Sunday – Roasted 2 chickens. (We ate part of one that night and put leftovers in the fridge).
Monday – Chicken Pot Pie (made with leftover chicken)
Tuesday – Spaghetti and Garlic Bread
Wednesday – Sour Cream Pork Chops, rice, green beans.
Thursday – Pizza (I’m making homemade crust for the first time). I’m also making homemade hot dog buns for Friday night.
Friday – Hot Dogs (homemade hot dog buns) and fries made from fresh cut potatoes.
Saturday – Breakfast: Pancakes (and sausage if I can get around to making some before Saturday).
Dinner: Fish (spots that we have in freezer) and fries made from fresh cut potatoes.
