What a crazy, busy weekend it's been. I feel like my four days off flew by with barely a chance to catch a breath -- even with being stuck at home all day yesterday!
The grocery store ads weren't great this week, so I decided it wasn't worth making an extra trip out in the snow and cold. Instead, we're going to try eating what we've already got and adding our extra $50 to the principal on our car loan! Thankfully, due to the Holidays, what we've already got to eat includes delicious Honey Baked Ham, Hickory Farms and all kinds of other random goodies. It will still be a little bit of a challenge though, as I will be working M-Th this week. I am pretty good at just getting by with whatever we've got, but I feel bad about leaving my husband in that predicament. I'll write out a short menu plan for him, so he won't have to "think" about what to feed everyone.
For breakfast/lunch/dinner, we'll be eating...
Monday - biscuits and jelly / ham sandwiches and oranges / tuna noodles and apples
Tuesday - cinnamon sugar whole wheat toast and blueberries/ ham sandwiches and steamed veggies / confetti chicken casserole
Other breakfasts this week will ikely be baby's favorite. Lunches will likely be ham sandwiches all week long. For dinner, I'm planning on really easy things like spaghetti and orange juice chicken. One thing that is kind of a bummer is that I only have about a half gallon of milk and one egg. I'll have to ration those items, so that will mean no baking or breakfast for dinner! Bummer! If all else fails, well, I've got about 5 Mrs. Smith's pies and 10 tubs of Cool Whip. We may be in a sugar coma by Friday, but surely we won't starve!
