Planing to move anywhere is stressful. Planing to move out of the country while finishing a semester of graduate work will kill you, or at least make you cry. A lot.
In the interest of full disclosure, we have been out to eat almost every night for the last two weeks. I decided to try and reclaim control of the food situation and I always hear that planning is so much better than winging it every night. So I have attempted to put together a menu that will allow me to send less of our money to Bancock City and Chili’s and more of it at Nordstrom like God intended.
Sunday: Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce with Salad
Monday: Chicken and Dumplings (It’s easy because I make them with biscuits. Don’t judge me.)
Tuesday: Lasagna (yes, it is frozen but better that I could make)’
Wednesday: Out to eat with church home group!!!
Thursday: Taco Soup
Friday: Pizza Patron.
What’s that you say? That is only 4 dinners and you are still going out on Wednesday and getting Pizza Patron on Friday. Yes, but it is 4 more dinners than I have cooked lately and Pizza Patron is $6 bucks a pizza and um; there is no and…6 BUCKS A PIZZA!!! 6 bucks, no cleanup, no problems!
I have done as much prep as possible today so that there don’t have to be any runs to the store. I made some blueberry coffee cake for breakfast and it is already cut up and in baggies in the fridge so it is fast in the mornings.
So if I am still crying at the end of the week after all this freaking work, we are just going to go back to eating out or showing up at random people’s house and asking them to feed us.
