I was out of town from Wednesday until late Friday night, and it is nice to be back in my own bed.
I wasn't sure how we'd do on the pantry challenge since my darling husband LOVES to eat out, but he made a concerted effort to be mindful of the budget, and they only went out to dinner once. Yea!
I had to go to the grocery store on Saturday morning - I bought celery, mushrooms, apples, cottage cheese, yogurt, and bacon. We were good for everything else.
You can see what we're eating every day on the challenge right here.

Here's the plan for this week:
Sunday~ brisket in the crockpot with onions and mushrooms, served over a baked potato. Sneaky chocolate cake for dessert.
Monday~ It's supposed to rain. Leftover chili.
Tuesday~ Teriyaki chicken, rice, oriental veggies from the freezer
Wednesday~ Ham slices from the freezer, collards, leftover mac'n'cheese from Saturday, and maybe some swiss beans
Thursday~ I have a hair appointment & hubs has class. It'll be a leftovers kind of night.
Friday~ Either leftovers or pasta fagioli soup in the freezer.
Saturday~ Ds is going on a campout, so I'm leaving this open.
