Weekly Menu

In an effort to cut out unnecessary food spending (where the majority of our post-bills spending goes), I am going to attempt to loosely plan out a weekly menu each week.  I say loosely because I don’t like to be held to a concrete plan and have not had success sticking to a weekly menu in the past. 🙂  However, by creating a general structure with recipes I know and room to wiggle as necessary, I hope to have success this time. 🙂

This week I have allowed myself not to cook every night, which means I will buy a sandwich the following day.  In the future I hope to be less lazy and start packing a lunch.  Baby steps, baby!
