We really need to get back on the menu planning bandwagon around here. Craig has been working part time since the beginning of March and we’re trying to keep our savings intact and me home on Maternity leave, so keeping the grocery budget down is a great way to start! We’ve been eating out more that we’d like just because 6pm rolls around and I don’t want to cook, and, uh, Craig doesn’t.
Flexibility is key around here as we’re always getting together with friends or Craig is working late and Emily and I are on our own, so I’m not assigning meals to specific days. I’ve shopped for the following meals and will be preparing them day by day as needed, with the exception of the (big!) turkey, which I am cooking on Saturday so we can use the extra meat for meals in the coming weeks. Additionally, on Sundays we often get together with friends for a potluck, so that day is left open for leftovers or get-togethers.
