The only drawback is that with us preparing more dinners at home our recipe rotation is getting pretty old. Things that we once loved (and would get me so excited when I thought of it at lunch), are now so blah. Now just to find new recipes!
L.O. = Left overs
*OUT* = Went out to eat...
CHIX = Chicken
Sadly, we have stopped eating linguini and clam sauce (our cheapest and easiest meal) due to OD'ing on it. Husband guy has also informed me that grilled cheese sandwiches are now a 'no' - he/we are trying to cut back on bread and cheese.
Interestingly though, I have gotten good about making meals out of random crap we have in the fridge (see July 24-27). It saves money and helps to clean out the fridge! I always thought dinner had to comprise of, well, "dinner food." Now I am comfortable knowing that for us the only requirements for dinner is that it includes food, and that it would be great if the food was somewhat healthy. So, hardboiled eggs + random fruit in smoothie form + assortment of leftovers can be a perfectly acceptable dinner.
