This week we actually ate from the store of food we had in the house!! It was challenging and a far cry from what this family is used to and yet it was strangely fulfilling.
Now, I admit that this week was probably the easiest week we will have. First, we had a New Year's Eve party where people left some yummy treats. We had spent a small fortune at the store the day before Christmas. And, the newness and excitement provided a sense of motivation.
On Saturday, we watched movies ALL day long. I watched four movies (pure indulgence)!! Therefore I didn't cook much and declared it a help yourself, grazing kind of a day.
Brunch: Homemade biscuits and chocolate Gravy and Cheese
Dinner: Potato Soup and Leftover biscuits
Sunday turned out to be a nice way to end the first week. For dinner some friends came over and it was great because they brought a couple of things to add to the mix and we had a veritable FEAST!! Plus, it was just relaxing to hang out with friends!!
Breakfast: Doughnuts at church
Lunch: Quesadillas, PBJ and odds and ends leftovers
Dinner: Penne Pasta w/ Turkey Sausage, Stuffed Mushrooms (YUMMY!), Salad and Broccoli (our friends brought this), and Focaccia Bread. Chocolate Chip Cookies (our friends brought these delightful goodies).
Amount spent on Food Items at the Store this week: $0.00 (YEAH!!)
