But with my meal planning done a big weight will be lifted. I think we will need to do a periodic produce shop – even though my neighbors have GENEROUSLY gifted us garlic, onions, tomatoes, carrots, and peppers. And I have some herbs and a few other things coming in too!
Our family eats lots of apples and bananas as snacks.
Veggies we may have covered but we will see.
So today we resisted spending…
– I have serious love for drive thru’s. Especially with two small boys, a huge pregnant belly and on days that my hubby is out of commission. Today that was him leading worship a couple towns over (a gig he got paid to do!) So today I saw posted that it was “free beef taco” day at Taco Time and it was on our way home. Hit that up and it felt like a special treat for this crabby Momma. The boys had leftover spaghetti squash and I had a taco for lunch. NO SPENDING!
What we did spend on…
– hubby grabbed lunch with his Dad after they lead worship (and we said okay since he got paid) plus it was great time with his Daddy-O that was “absolutely necessary.” My father-in-law has been a rockstar real estate agent through a long and arduous process and we could never repay him! ($20)
– I’m learning leftovers are KEY. We waste so much by not eating them. I need to commit to eating them or cooking less (this month several recipes I am cutting in half)
– There is a lot I buy at the store that I can make at home.
