update #2

So, not that anyone probably cares...but I do :0) here is how the rest of the week went. we had tacos, pretty simple. cooked the meat ahead of time and then reheated the night of. the baked chicken burgers ( and potato salad) : they were really easy and pretty yummy. I will probably omit the mayo next time and add it after. something about warm mayo kinda ruined it for me. SO i will try again and re modify the recipe for us. johnny marzetti ( or meat mixture on cheesy noodles) this one was really yummy. made the meat mixture and then the noodles and froze them in separate bags. defrosted and reheated. I will make the noodles next time on cooking night. Mine ended up really dry and didn't reheat very well. but I will make again. we were supposed to have turkey burgers, but was making some spicy honey chicken for the freezer so we had that for dinner instead with leftover potato salad. Korean beef on friday, always a family favorite here at our house. saturday night we ate out (too hot for anything).

my grocery bill this week came to 93.99 dollars. I scored big on some bogo packs of boneless chicken breast and boneless chicken thighs. I got 11 meals out of my 4 packages of chicken. I think it's pretty good, but I could have done better. I will post my menu later for this coming week, I am not sure if I will be able to execute it this week, I may be breaking into some of my stashed away steaks and what not as they weather is going to be very hot and I dont want the stove on at all. but thats alright, that just means I have my meals for the following week :0)

I care :) I'm glad you tried that Johnny Marzetti. It's on my list. I plan to get the groceries tomorrow and do a month's worth of cooking on Saturday and Sunday morning (I can't deal with an entire day at this point). So, as long as I don't go into labor, that's the plan. I'll let you know how it goes!
