Saved Money Today

August 27th, 2014 at 12:18 am

I really didn't want to spend money on lunch out today, but my friend is in town... I also have a lot of work right now, and didn't feel like I wanted to take an hour out (I'm struggling to finish as it is).

I'm very proud that I told her that instead of lunch I could go for a walk. And it was a really nice walk! And it was free! And my dog walked with us (she goes to the office with me and I take her on a short walk after lunch).

Tonight we were supposed to go to a soccer assessment for F, but it's been bucketing raining all afternoon. They play in the rain, but there's also been a ton of lightning and thunder, and they don't play in lightning. She's sad, but they've rescheduled it to next Tuesday.

My plan for an easy dinner still applies: grilled cheese and tomato soup. Perfect for the stormy weather. We may have the same thing next Tuesday! (Perfect when you only have 10 minutes to make dinner, too).

    Great work on the free date with your friend! I always like to have easy dinners on nights when we have activities. It does help to plan.

    What are your easy dinners? I only have a few... grilled cheese, mexican eggs and something from the freezer (that I made earlier and froze extra portions).

    Our easy dinners include eggs, soup, microwave meals, something in the crockpot (generally chicken), and taco dip (which I make ahead of time). Sandwiches are also an easy and quick dinner.

    It's good to remember you don't always have to do lunch just to get together!

    I love tomato soup and grilled cheese. One of my favorite dinners.
