Ah, Friday, and payday, and the start of another meal plan.
In my last 2 week cycle, I really saw the blessings of God. I took a meal to a friend with a new baby, entertained my inlaws for 3 days, bought all our regular groceries, and I still ended up with $5 left at the end of the week! So, rejoice with me that my money stretched so far. And we didn't even notice it at all. Not one little bit. How fun is that??!?
This week, I'm planning to cash in a gift certificate my husband won at Christmas. I'm picking up my honey baked ham on Sunday afternoon, so that'll be a few suppers, and it should provide lunches for much of the week as well.
Friday: black bean soup over rice
Saturday: eggs, toast, grits (breakfast), IKEA $1 meatballs (lunch), Longhorn takeout (supper--using up another Christmas gift card)
Sunday: bagels (breakfast), ham sandwiches, maybe soup if we get home in a timely manner (lunch), pasta with ricotta and broccoli rabe, beet salad (supper)
Monday: honey baked ham, creamed corn, green salad
Tuesday: kofta kabobs, hummus, pita bread, tzatziki sauce
Wednesday: spaghetti ham pie, salad
Thursday: salmon croquettes, rice, some sort of veggie
