And … entering Week 37 of Hubby’s Unemployment Adventures.
After last weeks statement about tightening the belt one more notch, we ate out THREE times … and the menu plan fell off the cliff. Geez Louise. So, time to brush the dirt off my butt and get moving again with the plan!
I’m trying to hold out going to the store, however, Costco is in sight. I’ve got some chicken thighs that were really funky looking and smelling, skin had green/grey stuff all over them and they smelled like some kind of chemical. We’ve had some bad luck with these lately and I finally told Hubby that I’m taking back all the boneless one’s I have. It’s just ridiculous that I spend that much money and then end up throwing the meat out and not having anything to prepare for dinner. Makes for one very unhappy camper 😦
It’s the last week of February, for which I’m thankful as it’s been a long, rough month … not that I want to push for March (the third month of the year, ALREADY!) but I’m ready to move on. Not to mention, the time springs forward on March 5th which means it will be lighter later when I get home at night (but also darker in the morning when I wake up) … that means I can start riding my new to me bike after work! Yeah!
Enough … here’s what we are aiming for this week!
Sunday – 2 ingredient pizza dough with pepperoni, cheese and mushrooms … all ingredients in house. Watch for recipe soon! *UPDATE* Came down with a cold and just vegged all day … we ended up eating leftovers and the kids made pasta with garlic bread … Maybe I’ll try the pizza this weekend?
Monday – Grown Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and soup on the side. Looking at a crockpot white chicken chili to give a try! (cheese mix leftover from last time we made the sandwiches and all chili ingredients in pantry/freezer)
Wednesday – Crockpot Day! Potato Soup … Hubby is not going to like soup twice in one week but it is what it is! Hashbrowns in freezer and balance of ingredients in fridge/pantry
Thursday – Fend for yourself, leftover day! I need to start putting a clean out the fridge day back on the menu!
Friday – Grillin and Chillin with some burgers and tater skins. I have taters that I need to use up soon as they are starting to sprout … hamburger in freezer, buns in pantry (25 cent packs!)…cheese and such for skins in freezer/fridge. I also think we have friends coming over tonight or tomorrow
Saturday – Hubby’s choice … would like to do steak and shrimps as we have the tenderloin in freezer (from Valentine’s Day, Hubby bought a whole tenderloin and cut it himself) as the shrimp is in freezer too … otherwise, it’s his call, chicken, etc.
What are you making this week??
