A new week is here. The sun is shining. It looks like a mild day outdoors. Quite deceiving. It’s frigidly cold. All that matters is that the sun is shining down. That’s where my happiness lies.
This week on the meal plan we have:
- Pasta & Sauteed Veggie Bake
- Mexican Stuffed Pasta
- Lazy Day Casserole
- Baked Chicken & Spinach Pasta
- Santa Fe Chicken & Rice
Meal planning is really beginning to pay off big time. It’s being reflective in our monthly Visa bills. Our weekly grocery bill has seen a 40% decrease in the amount spent. That’s huge! We also haven’t ate fast food or ordered take out in weeks. Okay… that’s a bluff. We ordered pizza last night. Prior to that we hadn’t order in, in over 2 weeks. We used to be the family that spoiled ourselves with takeout 2 to 3 times a week.
I’ve decided not to set in stone which days we will specifically eat each meal. I like to pick and chose on a whim. It all depends on how I’m feeling each day as to what may satisfy my taste buds. Whatever works.
Hope you all have a fabulous week!
