I am trying to be more aware of what we are eating, and our budget. Menus have always helped with both of these, it is just sticking with it. So, maybe if I put it in writing, than I must stick with it...right?
So, here is this week (planned):
Monday: Chicken Pot Pie, salad (homemade croutons) with artichokes, black and green olives.
Tuesday: BBQ Chicken legs and thighs, Jasmine rice, green beans
Wednesday: Pot roast (at church)
Thursday: Date night
Friday: Calzones, salad
Saturday: Roladen (recipe to come), macaroni noodles, cucumber salad
Sunday: Meat Loaf, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, peas, salad
So...there it is. I will grocery shop on Thursday, see a nephew's football game, and have date night. Not what I would truly do on one of our date nights, but David and I consider our dates just time together. It really doesn't matter what we are doing, and grocery shopping can be fun with someone you love.
I will keep you updated. My family is not hopeful. Carmen rolled her eyes (not that this doesn't normally happen coming from a 17 year old teenager).
