Two weeks to go

November 2nd, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Until payday. I'm counting down now. No reason to stress though. I plan to do as little food shopping as possible between now and then.

I had baked potato and some leftover sausage casserole with it. I sprinkled some cheese on top. There wasn't any sausages left so it was really just sauce. I've never had that for dinner before. However, I didn't need to do any prep so it was good. Quick and easy.

Hubby has got overtime for tomorrow morning. I think he has had three or four extra shifts so far.

    Do you workout budget by percentages of income or designated sum based on experience? , Sausage, Potato & Peppers, Classic Meat Loaf. Any leftovers will be made-over into Spanish Rice.

    You can do it for the 2 weeks! I have been there Smile Have you put together a meal plan? I usually plan meals to use all I have in the house & just buy the extras needed, limiting grocery spending. You don't have to follow the meal X HAS to be eating Monday, it can be more like. The next three days, dinners will be casserole, pasta and meatloaf. Then I eat what I am in the mood for out of the 3 options

    Snafu: it's based on our limited experience just now, so it may change in the future. Crock pot lasagna sounds good, how do you do that?

    HH: I've been trying to meal plan for a few weeks now. Tomorrow I will plan for next week. (I don't have to worry about Sunday's dinner as hubby works late so it's just me) It is easier just to decide what meals we're having rather than specific days.

    Glad to see you online HH!

    Soup is great to make because it's cheap, easy and tastes great as leftovers.

    Nearly every baked/roasted entree can be adjusted to crock pot cookery. There are a lot of sites like cooks.com or ivillage.com to offer ideas.

    If you have fav lasagna recipe it can be adjusted to 'bake' in your crockpot. I found it helpful to 'thin out' my tomato paste & sauce mixture with some wine since the alcohol cooks out. It helps to spray PAM the crock to keep the lasagna from sticking to the sides. Increasing the amount of sauce on 1st layer [bottom of your crock] keeps pasta from getting too 'crisp'. Double the bottom layer of lasagna noodles, cut/broken to fit, neatness doesn't count. Repeat layers meat/sauce mixture, cheese mix, pasta until ingredients are used up ending with pasta topped cheese.

    Cook on low 6 - 8 hours.

    Good luck, I am sure that you can make it! That is great that your DH can have the insurance of some extra shifts to boost the income a bit. Anything that leads to extra money in this economy is a help! I hope that you're doing great, and the baby as well.
