Last Week Review: Well, I would have stuck to my budget had my sweet tooth not gotten in the way… Yes, that means this past week was a diet fail, but I did manage to get a little bit of exercise in. We went over budget, but not in an awful way. I did decide to make some changes to our meal planning this week.
This week: I will not be planning meals according to days. There has just been too many times where for one reason or another, a meal won’t work for that particular day. This is starting to drive my OCD a little nuts. So we will be trying something new; which is not planning by day, but by week. 4 meals picked out, planned, shopped for, and hopefully 4 meals eaten. The goal of this will be to lose the stress of sticking to a schedule.
Our 4 meals for this week:
Italian Chicken Sausage sandwich, with roasted organic onions and peppers
Pasta Salad with organic spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, pine nuts, chickpeas, and Parmesan cheese
“What do you mean we are out of Strawberries?? Mom you should really be more prepared!!” ~The Strawberry Distroyer aka Squishy
Total week Budget – $50
To help me this week, thanks to Organizing Junkie, and Makes and Takes I will be doing my own Wipe-Off Menu Board. I think I will also make another to help me organize my blog posts! This is a super easy project! (Which is right up my craft challenged alley!)
