I've been using the excuse well, I'm 9 month pregnant and I'm tired. Hubs won't help, blah blah blah. Anyway, not only have we all been feeling a little yucky lately the hubs has started getting grumpier. :) We all have really. Eating out is more then just "fast food." It makes you feel grumpy, slug-ish, and just plain crappy! Our kids have been MONSTERS and I seriously think that is a big part of the reason.
So last night I mentioned at our random supper. Should we do the not eating out challenge again!? Crazy enough the KIDS were the ones who started cheering. The hubs and I were happy to oblige. So starting TODAY no eating out until the hubs gets paid. That is 12 days. We do have a few things we will be out of town for and again aren't going to beat ourselves up if we don't take sandwiches. However, we are going to make a conscious effort to eat at home.
When making our meal plan for the next 12 days, I decided since we are moving we also need to clean out our pantry/freezer. So the only things on our grocery list will be staples that we go through often. (ie: milk, eggs, fresh produce, ect) So there ya have it. We are trying again!
I will keep you update, maybe not as completely as I did before, but will still post meal plans and recipes.
Recipes we are trying:
Mini German Cakes with Berry Topping(homemade)
Best Ever Burgers
Smoked Mozz Meatloaf
Stay tuned for a meal plan for the next few days! :)
