What a week. Not what I imagined in many, many ways. As I’ve discussed in other Food Budget posts, when my routine goes out the window, my meal plan is not far behind. Groceries cost $126 (that was two trips), and we grabbed Wendy’s for $12 on Tuesday night when “The Bug” hit our house. A day of cleaning up after and soothing a very sick little boy leaves no energy (or appetite) for cooking. I’m glad to report that we seem to be on the mend. Only our middle guy got the full-fledged virus. The oldest seemed a little off, but nothing came of it. Here’s hoping for a weekend with no more menu changes.
Monday — Dinner Out (pre-scheduled and budgeted in a different category)
Tuesday — Wendy’s (unexpected outing)
Wednesday — Chicken stir fry over rice
Thursday — Gnocchi that never was made last week because of a faculty picnic. (I’m substituting red pepper for the zucchini.)
Friday — Homemade BBQ chicken pizza and salad
Saturday — Picnic food: Burgers on the grill, potato salad, deviled eggs, veggies and dip, and something sweet.
Sunday — Leftovers!
ONE WEEK TO GO!!!!!!
