“It was a tasty day!” She says, patting her belly.
Today was a pretty chill day with four of the kids home. We’ve got only three more days of the challenge, and I think we’ll be going out on a high note.
Last night Bryan and I stopped at ALDI for a few last things. We spent $48 on: soda water, tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, frozen fruit, cottage cheese, eggs, pepperoni, dried cranberries, almonds, broccoli, cilantro, milk, half and half, frozen green beans, garlic, and southwest salad.
That brings our monthly total to $361. I don’t think I’ll need to make another stop before the end of the week, so I think we’re good! I’ll let you know in my final post, but I’m thrilled to have pared down so much.
And honestly? We’ve still got a few proteins in the freezer that I didn’t get to. We could probably squeeze another week out of this thing, but I’ll be happy to reduce it to weekly freezer diving.
This morning we all had a variation of egg bake, Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, oatmeal, and smoothies.
The egg bakes have been a really great meal prep because it reheats so well. Definitely adding this to my weekly routine.
FishChick11 has been requesting Chunky Potato Soup with Bacon & Tarragon for weeks. Since I knew we had a lot of bacon, I told her we would.
And today we did.
She did most of the prep work which made actually making the soup in the pressure cooker super easy!
FishChick13 and I also both had salads.
I knew there were several random bags of chip crumbs in the freezer so I made two batches of Lawnmower Taco.
I left some meat on the side for those who didn’t want the casserole. We had taco salads and lettuce wrap tacos.
As I said, a very tasty day, indeed!
