The Man and I are trying VERY hard to keep all meals at the house this month. This is mostly to keep our budget under control, but it will help the waistline as well, of course. This past week wasn’t perfect, but we did have a few meals that would have never happened had we not had this goal. Being tired and hungry after working all day is a recipe for fast food binging, especially if you haven’t set any meat out to thaw that day! I was non-functional Sunday-Tuesday with my back, so that was another challenge we had to get through. Luckily, I have a great guy who has been stepping up with house duties.
Sunday is Pizza Night!!!
Forgot the pic of grilled chicken with gravy and asparagus.
Wednesday- Pasta w/ Chicken Sausage
Thursday- Mexican Bowl w/ rice, black beans, tomatoes, and sausage.
Friday- Chicken n’ Dumplings at the in-laws
Saturday- Elected to take Mom out for Chinese buffet for Mothers Day. An exception for the occasion.
All in all it was a great first week of our Eat-at-home challenge. A few of those meals were completely thrown together last minute, but it makes me feel good knowing we saved a handful of cash doing it. And for those wondering, the girls ate everything we did… Mostly. They topped their own pizzas, and didn’t care for the chicken sausage (but tried it, at least). I think try are becoming more receptive to seeing something other than nuggets on the table though, so that’s a good thing.
