This week's progress; thoughts about next week

February 12th, 2015 at 06:03 pm

We had another $25 reimbursement from DH's work, so I sent that to the home improvement fund. Sidebar updated. Smile

We don't have childcare tomorrow, so I will stay home with the boys. That means today was the end of my work week. (Although I will still be doing some work in the evenings.) How did I do with my goals?

I did take brownies and tea bags to work, so didn't buy any there. (I did buy hot water for the tea bags for 25 cents. I should probably cut that out, too.) I didn't take my lunch at all, but I did score free lunch on Wednesday for a work-related event. And it was delicious!

So not a perfect week, but not terrible. I'll try again next week. DH has already requested that I make a double batch of brownies this time so he can have some, too. Smile

We have stuck to our meal plan for dinners this week, too, and haven't eaten out at all. Since tomorrow is Friday, it's our scheduled night for pizza or takeout. And I might need it after a day with the boys. Smile

For next week's meal plan, I'm going to try to use up some of the things from the newly reorganized pantry shelves. Like use a bunch of the garbanzo beans to make chickpea patties. Maybe make a casserole with the egg noodles (don't even remember buying those, we rarely eat them!) I'll have to look more closely at what we have and see what I can put together. Might be fun!

If I'm stumped, I might post some ingredients here on my blog and see if you guys can give me recipes. Smile

    Great going! Do you have a microwave at work to heat water? Or could you use the coffee maker thingy to get hot water for your tea? (Sorry, don't drink coffee, so not sure how it would work/terminology)

    I buy wide egg noodles for a dessert Lasagna because there is too much sauce by the time I've made home made spaghetti sauce. If you make mini meatballs .
    Spanish casserole uses egg noodles
    Traditional creamed chicken or tuna inside the ring of cooked, egg noodles.

    It all depends on what your family will eat.

    I like to use egg noodles for beef stroganoff, which is a great comfort food in winter!
