For now, it's all about budgeting and menu-planning. No last minute supermarket runs (which always cost more!) and no take-out (haven't done that in a while, though). Besides, the thought of fast food turns my stomach now. I don't remember the last time I had a fast food burger, which is a good thing!
This week's menu is based around what I have in the freezer and pantry right now and what is on sale at the supermarket. I'm putting it here so I make sure I follow it. Normally, I'd print it out and put it on the fridge for us to follow, but the printer gave up the ghost, too. It'll scan but when I ask it to print, it just laughs at me ;)
Saturday: Amish pot roast (no idea why it's Amish, it has soy sauce and coffee in the recipe!)
Sunday: Chicken, rice, vegetables
Monday: Pasta primavera
Tuesday: Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables
Wednesday: Beans and rice
Thursday: Leftover pot roast
Friday: No clue yet! Clean out the fridge/freezer leftover time?
What's nice is that all of this makes enough so that I can also bring leftovers for lunch, which saves a lot!
