Hubbins and I have been making an effort to cook at home more. We both looove to eat out, but we've been working on our budget and eating out all the time just is not conducive to saving money. Sad but true. We're attempting meal planning and everything. This domesticity thing is weird.
|I borrowed this from here. Because it's cute. :)|
It's been fun though trying to find different recipes, especially ones that are easier to make and healthier. I bought a pre-marinated salmon filet the other day for under $7, and it'll probably have leftovers for the next couple days which we can use for lunches too. We're getting zucchini and squash to roast along with it. WE SHALL FEAST LIKE KINGS! And on a budget!! I am woman, hear me roar!
We've also realized that we probably shouldn't buy 8 bananas for the 2 of us. It's not like we eat bananas all day everyday. Plus I get 'em for free at work, so… I'll be making banana bread soon. That's basically the moral of the story here. Don't buy lots of bananas for 2 people. Marriage has been filled with weird little tidbits like that. I like it though. It's an adventure. =)
So far we've made…
Pesto grilled cheese sandwiches
Sloppy joe's and green beans
Chicken pot pie
Bowtie pasta with bacon and broccoli (with a side of alliteration)
BBQ Chicken pizza & caesar salad
We're also trying to make sure we eat veggies at every meal, and we bought some mangos that we sliced up and have been eating. Yuuuuuuum.
What are some of your favorite meals to make? I'll take anything: crockpot, healthy, vegetarian, meaty, preferably something that will make leftovers…. What say ye, fat kids?!
