That is a long title!
At the beginning of the year Mike started looking at our finances and has decided we spend way to much on eating out (I totally agree). Although I try to plan meals for us each week - throw in Little Gym, soccer, later then expected nights at work, and just plan too tired - the meals don't always get made and we head out for a quick bite. I thought we had been doing good so far this year - but he showed me the stats - and we weren't doing as good as my mind thought we were. I am happy to report that usually we eat out a lot over the weekends - this last weekend 1 meal - breakfast. Although not perfect, that is pretty good for us. We lunched on my Grandma DeSpain's goulash for a few days which made lunch nice and warm - with a little memory of Grandma thrown in for good measure.
Enter this week - I have to go out of of town for work - but - I'm not going to leave them completely empty handed.
The other goal I made for myself this year - I love Pinterest. I often lay in bed at night not being able to sleep on my phone with pinterest. We have a wonderful relationship. But I decided I need to put her to better use. My goal is to do one thing a week I've pinned. So that means new recipes, new games for the kids, maybe a few household projects? So this week we're starting with a new recipe, and my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Sunday - Pioneer Woman's meatloaf, mash potatoes and salad - I didn't get to this a few weeks ago and have been dying to try it.
Monday - Honey Mustard Chicken w/noodles
Tuesday - Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwiches
Wednesday - Scrambled Eggs and Bacon
Thursday - leftovers or something quick before the game
Friday - Fish Sticks and grapes
Saturday - Coconut Shrimp and Pineapple
I'll let you know how the chicken turns out!
FYI - if you haven't made Pioneer Woman's meatloaf - do it - so good!
