Hello, everyone! How was your day??
It was definitely a MONDAY for me...First, we woke up with the temperature below zero today. Yikes!! And the whole week looks not very promising either. I wanted to take a picture of our thermometer but just couldn't make myself get out of the house with the camera. Brrr!! The forecast said that it was about 1F but they are lying! it was -7F on my thermometer. What do they know??
OK, done pouting :) I'm just really counting the days until spring. So I stayed inside pretty much all day (other than 20 minutes to pick up Kid from school). It's easy to have a no-spend day when it's freezing outside :) I did a ton of laundry and made an inventory of our fridge and freezer. Unfortunately, I had some food waste. I didn't take any pictures (being lazy again) but on the very bottom of the fridge I found some freezer burned hamburgers and a bag of black beans. You know that I hate throwing away food :( I really need to start doing monthly inventory from now on.
And this week we will eat, mostly, what we have in the fridge, freezer and pantry. I actually want to challenge myself to spend no more than $10 for food this week which should be easy. We should only need bananas, apples and milk. Well, might need some potatoes too.
This isn what our menu looks like:
Mon.- tater tots, hot dogs, peppers and corn (OK, Mommy was tired and needed some comfort food...)
Tues.- shrimp scampi, angel hair pasta, steamed broccoli
Wed.- `tuna sandwiches
Thurs.- broccoli-beef, rice
Fr.- BBQ sausage, potatoes, frozen veggies or salad
Sun.- soup with homemade bread/ pizza
What are you eating this week?
