The husband and I have made a pact: No fast food or restaurants for 1 week. This may seem like an easy feat, however we find ourselves “grabbing” something to eat a few times a week. However, with us becoming a single income family and a little bug on the way…we need to save money and our waistlines will be happier I’m sure!
In order to try and make this goal come to fruition, I sat down last night with a pen, paper, and Pinterest and made a meal plan! I LOVE Pinterest, for many things…but mostly for the recipes! There are a TON of them, and most are very easy and don’t need many weird ingredients. Anywho, here’s our meal plan this week…maybe you’d like to try a few of these for yourself!
Wednesday: Yogurt Chicken
Thursday: Pork Ribs
Crock Pot Baked Beans
Corn on the Cob
Friday: Parmesan Chicken Soup
Saturday: Rotisserie Chicken (We have a mini countertop Rotisserie, and it ROCKS!)
Baked Beans (left over from two nights before!)
Sunday: Mexican Shredded Beef Tacos
Monday: Thai Pork w/Peanut Sauce
I’m going grocery shopping today, so I’m hoping that I can stay within my budget. I’m normally NO good at grocery budgets and shopping lists so I really have NO idea how my bill will turn out…but one goal at a time right?? And these yummy dinners (with LOTS of leftovers) will surely keep us away from that fast food counter!
