Have you ever just had an expensive weekend? One where you look at the budget on Monday and think "Holy freakin' crap what the H happened???"? Cuz that was us this weekend/today.
While Mike worked his tushy off this weekend- 2 shifts at one job, 1 at the other, unless you count Friday and then it's 2 and 2- Tangent, he put in his three weeks notice at the second job, and I couldn't be HAPPIER about losing a source of income!- I spent the weekend out. I celebrated a birthday Sunday night and met some really cool new friends. I spent all day Saturday at a golf outing for work and then ate dinner with the group. Sunday I meant to just have brunch with the best friend, but... Brunch turned into brunch, shoe shopping fail and then chatting our ears off until we realized "Holy freakin' crap it's 5:30 pm".
Needless to say, nothing was accomplished on the home front. And I spent way too much over budget this week. We bought a few last minute groceries, and our budget ran out.
So tonight, in order to keep with the budget, I plan on searching the cupboards for dinner ideas so I don't have to buy groceries. So far, this is what I have-
Monday and Tuesday maybe Wednesday?- Homemade Chili that I was supposed to make last week
Wednesday and Thursday- Soup from a can.
Friday- "Naked Spaghetti" and veggies. It's basically spaghetti noodles in parmesan and butter... SO unhealthy.
Saturday breakfast- Sausage, Eggs, Biscuits maybe homemade? (we gots breakfast food!)
Saturday dinner- Frozen pizza/whatever is in the freezer.
Sunday breakfast- Turkey Bacon, Waffles or pancakes
Sunday dinner- Pizza
HOPEFULLY the cabinets have a vast treasure-trove worth of food/ideas. I know we have some canned veggies at least. No fresh fruit though... But there might be some frozen... hmmmm...
Oh, and I'm linking up.
