Frugal Thoughts for Today, Plus this Week's Meal Plan

September 15th, 2015 at 04:08 pm

D is doing student photos for F's school again this year. He doesn't charge the school, but he makes money when parents order photos. Not sure how much he'll make, but he is going to take part of it to buy a new smartphone since his is now pretty old (isn't it weird what counts as old now?). The rest will go into savings which I need to shore up since we "borrowed" a little to redo our stucco and pay for D's allergy shots.

I helped out with the school photos today, so I didn't get much work done, but that's fine - I finished my deadline on Monday and this week is pretty quiet. Just a couple of meetings and misc. work.

Because of the busy day, I didn't have time to spend any money!

And I returned a lunch container which said it was 5x5 (perfect sandwich size) but turned out to be 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 (not perfect at all!).

Lunch was a very frugal: slice of turkey, a few chips, pluot, home-made muffin.

Dinner is: Spaghetti Gambino Crime Family (not the real name). It's actually this Jamie Oliver recipe (a really nice combination of shrimp, lemon, garlic, rocket, white wine and sundried tomatoes):

The rest of the week's meal planning (including the past few days) looks like this:
S - quesadillas with guacamole
S - chicken piccata and broccoli and rice
M - posole
T - gambino crime family pasta
W - grilled cheese with salad
T - crash potatoes from freezer and roasted broccoli
F - big salad with radishes, carrots and cucumber

Now I am super hungry, so I'm going to make dinner... what are you having tonight?

    Dinner: chef salad with our own, home grown cherry tomatoes, leftover meatloaf slices surprisingly moist with the addition of only a teaspoon of BBQ sauce, fz. hash browns baked into a casserole, mixed fz. [California] vegetables, Lime sherbert for 9 PM dessert.

    I'm having visitors tomorrow morning so I've just baked a pineapple upside down cake. Lunch will be home made leftover beef minestrone soup with an addition of cooked barley to add heartiness. I've some Ciabatta rolls which can be quickly defrosted if our visitors stay longer than anticipated...

    DH has important medical tests tomorrow, we're very nervous about outcpmes.
