Today was payday. There's not much to report. I paid some bills. We went to the local shop and bought some groceries and formula, that was 19.xx. I'm waiting on my credit cards updating so I can make a payment.

I've still got some presents to buy for Christmas. They're in shops that don't take my vouchers. The plan is to not go crazy. Next year I think I'll have some cash savings for Christmas.

I was really tired and wanted to order a takeaway. But I didn't.

    Good on you for sticking to the plan on so many levels like Fly Lady for tasks on one side and avoiding take-out/ unplanned spends. If you still have meatloaf in the freezer, it's a terrific plan-over base. You likely do Shepherd's pie better than I. Add the veggie and be generous with mashed potato. If you use a muffin tin SG might like her tiny, 'personal' pie.

    Will DH eat baked potato 'dressed' with sautéed onion and heaping mound of meatloaf grated cheese topping or not as preferred?

    Meatloaf reappears as Chilli when mixed into a tin of beans and chilli powder to your taste

    Sloppy Joe is very similar with a more generous amount of canned sauce enhanced with 1 T dried onions, 1 tsp.cornstarch, 1/2 tsp.dried minced garlic, 1/4 tsp. mustard, 1/4 tsp chilii pwd

    Stuff a few, cooked, giant past shells with smooshed meatloaf + Italian seasoning [oregano,thyme, garlic, parsley & pinch sugar. Serve with whatever roux/gravy you know the family likes

    Pizza is nearly instant with toasted, thick sliced [sturdy] bread or bun, slather with canned pizza sauce, bits of meatloaf and any 'toppings' at hand. Sprinkle with grated cheese & broil a few moments to let the cheese get melty.
