Good morning, and Happy Fourth of July weekend! If you're the kind of person who buys their fireworks early, and shoots them off for the next week as soon as the sun goes down, I hate you. A lot. The sun doesn't go down in the Pacific Northwest during the summer until 9:15 ish, and I have to get up at 4:45 am, so I get to listen to your Piccolo Petes, and curse you until midnight.
Other than that, we're cool.
Here is our meal plan for the week.
Monday::Mostly Meatless burgers (made these a few weeks ago and froze the leftovers), coleslaw, grilled zukes, and fruit.
Tuesday:: Baked potato bar, leftover coleslaw, and fruit.
Wednesday:: BBQ at the in-laws for the 4th. Eating starts at noonish, and I promise we won't be hungry for dinner.
Thursday:: Meatball subs, grilled zukes, and (shocker) fruit.
Friday:: Playdate with two of Jack's friends.
Saturday:: Popcorn, fruit, cheese, and veggies on the couch while watching a library movie.
Sunday:: Dinner at my parent's.
This week I spent $29.26 at the grocery store, $14.75 at the farmer's market, $39.78 at Trader Joes (stock up!), $12 for 3 dozen eggs, and $3.50 for local raw milk, for a total of $99.29.
You'd think my bill would be much higher considering we've been feeding an extra mouth this past week. Boba Fett has been sleeping over at Jack's insistence.
Even ruthless bounty hunters like the Twilight Turtle. It's dark in space yo!
