Weekend meals (Saturday through Monday) tend to be on our own. W works a 12 hour shift on these days. With the weather heating up he rarely wants anything heavy and often wants nothing at all. Normally his weekend supper is cereal. I eat leftovers.
Tuesday we had a chicken taquitos with guacamole and salads. The taquitos were homemade from the freezer. I am making an effort to eat out of the freezer this month.
Wednesday we had a hamburger/pork and beans casserole, slaw and rolls. Supper was popcorn and movie theater sized boxes of candy for movie night.
Thursday was cubed steak, peas, macaroni and cheese, and squash. I used some onion tops from the garden in the squash. I am trying to thin out my red onions so the remaining ones grow larger.
Friday's dinner was on your own. I ate a fish sandwich, and W ate leftovers. Supper was shredded Italian style deer meat and chips on homemade buns.
A helpful pantry challenge tip: never leave your husband alone with the grocery cart while you go off to look for wasp spray. He definitely cut into my $60 budget for this month. It will be tight, but I am still hopeful that I can make it work.
We bought lettuce, cereal, chips, lemonade and yogurt for a total of $27.05. Can you guess which purchases were his? That leaves me $32.95 for the remainder of the month. I do need to buy some fruit this week, but I hope to limit my shopping to just fruit and get back on track.
