Hi everyone! I’m sitting here procrastinating from getting prepared for the start of the week tomorrow. We’ve had a good weekend but weren’t nearly as productive as we should’ve been. We were out of town earlier this week (I had a conference for work) and it always takes us a while to recover from a trip. Suitcases are still out, partially packed. I’m just going to shoot for being somewhat organized before the weekend so that we can just relax when it gets here.
We got off budget this past month, so we’re trying to get back on track this month. The number one way we’re doing this? Trimming back BIG time on our eating out, which mostly occurs at lunch during the week. We’re going to work on having either sandwiches or leftovers for lunch the majority of the time.
On to dinners:
Monday: Grilled chicken, wild rice, and veggies
Tuesday: Whole wheat pasta with meat sauce, green beans, and a healthier version of garlic bread using whole grain bread (totally got that idea from our friend Jen!)
Wednesday: Leftover pasta – we always have a ton of leftovers from almost any pasta meal.
Thursday: Bisquick chicken tenders with french fries
Friday: Pepperoni pizza made with turkey pepperoni
So, that’s it for our meals! Speaking of food… be sure and check back soon for a review of Chili’s Triple Dippers – and a giveaway for a $20 Chili’s gift card!
Have an absolutely wonderful week, everyone!
Food from home is better for you anyway. I make extra food at dinner so the kids and I have some good leftovers for lunch the next day.
I usually do the leftover thing for lunch too. I feel ripped off when I eat leftovers for dinner!
