And lots of babies about 10 months later.
Here is what we're going to be eating this week. A quick reminder on breakfast - Tuesdays and Thursdays, Jack and I have smoothies. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Troy and I have oatmeal, and Jack eats breakfast at my aunt's.
Lunches for adults are always leftovers from the night before. Should we not have enough for two lunches, we'll grab a lunch-sized portion of soup from our deep freeze. When I make a big batch of soup in the crockpot, we freeze the leftovers in pint-sized glass canning jars just for this purpose. We'll take either a sandwich, or some cheese and crackers, carrots, and some fruit. Jack gets the same thing every day (I was the same way until I was 8, so I don't worry too much about lack of variety): sandwich with homemade bread, freezer jam, and DIY almond butter. Paired with a few slices of cheddar, some dried or fresh fruit, and maybe a little treat if I've made one.
Monday:: Roasted chicken, skillet potatoes, and salad from the garden.
Tuesday:: Black bean and cheese burritos, Spanish rice in the rice cooker, and fruit.
Wednesday:: Cold Thai noodle salad, and homemade lazy lady egg rolls (recipe coming this week!).
Thursday:: Troy is making burgers. He makes the yummiest burgers, which is lucky because I just recently picked up about a thousand pounds of grass fed burger and roasts from my local butcher. Ok, it was like 35 pounds, but still. They offer grassfed freezer packs for $129 for 25 lbs of beef. Because we don't really care about steak, they sub out the expensive cuts for 10 pounds more burger and roasts. Works out to $3.68 a lb for local grassfed meat! We'll probably rock some sweet potato fries, and grilled asparagus.
Friday:: Popcorn and fruit! The working mom end of week dinner of champions. While we sit on the couch and watch a movie. Oh yeah!
Saturday:: no ideas yet. Maybe you care to suggest something? I'll probably end up making breakfast for dinner if nothing else tickles my fancy.
Sunday:: dinner at my parents.
This week I spent $44.55 on groceries.

Happy cooking this week, but most importantly, happy eating!
