So you may have noticed I haven’t been around the blog much lately. I haven’t been very frugal lately, or very organized, leading to more non-frugality. So I’ve decided to start posting my weekly meal plans as a way to 1) get more organized, 2) eat better (less meat, more vegetables, less waste), and 3) save more money on food. Just like my reason for starting this blog in the first place, I believe that by putting something under scrutiny, I will improve my habits pertaining to that thing.
Before Nicky’s birth, things were going really well, frugality-wise, but things have been a bit chaotic since then. It’s interesting: I’ve had a lot less time to blog, and I’ve also had a lot less time to organize and plan shopping, eating and finances. So maybe by making my blogging time a direct organizational activity, I will both get organized and add some content to my blog. Hopefully the content will be interesting to my readers!
So here goes: Meal plan for the week, Monday March 29th to Sunday April 4th
Monday: chicken soup (made with the remains of a store-bought barbecue chicken, plus frozen veggie parings from freezer)
Tuesday: Linguine with Red Clam Sauce plus a salad
Wednesday: cold sandwiches with tuna salad, maybe some, plus some hummus and veggies,
Thursday: Perogies or fish bites and a salad
Friday: we’ll be on the road heading to Sudbury so we’ll probably pack peanut butter, crackers, granola bars, cheese sticks, little yogurts, and the like.
Saturday: my mom is making Easter Dinner–yay!
Sunday: Easter Dinner number two at Aunt Vickie and Uncle Scott’s–extra yum!
There you have it. I’ll post again next week with our next meal plan, and I’ll also list what we actually ate, so I can tweak our plans if need be. Thanks for reading!
