I could easily spend an entire paycheck at the store each week. Sometimes I make excuses to go to Whole Foods when I really don't need to. Luckily, Brett is quite good at knowing when we really do need to, and when I'm just having WF hallucinations. (That alone probably saves us close to $1000 each year).
But now that new school bills are looming in the very near future But now that we're living on one income-and we're living in our first HOME, it's time to get serious. And since I couldn't find many $60 meal plans that were healthy, delicious and vegetarian, I decided that I would create my own. Armed with three $20 bills, we will eat. And we will eat well.
I'm thankful for the bright red cranberries in my fridge. I'm thankful for the dark green kale cooking on the stove. I'm thankful for those vanilla cupcake goldfish that have lasted over two weeks sitting atop my fridge. I'm thankful that I have GOOD food to eat. I'm even more thankful that my husband quit his second part time job so I have someone to share these foods with. But not the goldfish. Not those.
This week, for 59.66...we're eating:
-PB toast on homemade wheat bread, fruit
There is nothing like homemade bread. Nothing. He didn't know I snuck up on him with my camera. Whatta sport.
