Yes, we have fallen off the meal-plan train with an audible thud. I will own up and take full responsibility for that on our family's behalf. But like all great comebacks, we have returned and are (possibly) better than ever.
Starting on Friday, our family will begin our month-long Dollar Diet (more on that later today), and we'll be living out of our freezer and pantry stockpiles. So, this week, we'll probably splurge a little and have at least one "night out" as a send off.
Regardless there are still 4 days between now and Friday and this family's gotta eat. So, here's what's on the menu:
Monday: I don't know what the heck happened to our 85 degree Spring days, but it's currently less than 40 outside and was sleeting this morning. So, it's shaping up to be a soup and sandwich kind of day. Specifically, Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup and grilled cheese sandwiches with Jarlsberg, fresh tomato and basil.
Tuesday: Roasted Chicken with Spring Vegetables
Wednesday: Tofu Lettuce Wraps
Thursday: A dinner out (somewhere that doesn't mind a screaming one-year-old who throws crap on the floor) to say Adios to our spending for thirty whole days.
