Last week went relatively smoothly with our menu plan and I'm happy to say that not only did Buppy make dinner 3 nights in a row for us, they were delicious! The onion beef stroganoff was my favorite until I tried the fish on Friday night. Since the onion beef stroganoff came from my Light & Tasty cookbook, it definitely wins out health-wise. But as for taste? They were both snazzy! I'll have to blog about the recipes when I have more time and energy. For now, here's what we have planned for this week; I'm pretty lucky that things will be light as we have a busy weekend ahead of us.
Monday: Leftovers I brought from Carmine's in Atlantic City [prime rib, mashed potatoes & asparagus]
Tuesday: Parmigiano & herb chicken breast tenders, scalloped potatoes [from a box, I'm a cheater here]
Wednesday: I think I'll have to stay at the hotel, so dinner will be something the restaurant cooks up for me most likely
Thursday: [Bugaboo home alone, Buppy at work] Breakfast for dinner
Friday: Tuna melts, steamed veggies
Saturday: We'll be attending a bull & oyster roast sans kidlets; they'll probably get chicken nuggets or mac 'n cheese
Sunday: Birthday party for the 3 yr. old and I haven't decided if I'm cooking yet; we'll probably order pizzas since we'll be out so late the night before
As an update, we're doing really well on our grocery budget goal to stay below $200. We only have 1 week left and we're well under $100 right now. There are some things that we need to get [sugar, olives, butter], but it's definitely lookin' good!
