MPM July 7th!

A bit late but at least it's here! We tried the Bubble Up Enchiladas this week and they didn't turn out well. I'm not sure what happened but it was all doughy in the middle. Ugh!

No set breakfast/lunches this week. Just can't get focused enough to plan them. Breakfasts will be Breakfast cookies, pancakes, eggs/sausage etc. Lunches are sandwiches, leftovers, mac&cheese, veggies/fruit etc. Might make some whole wheat cookies this week also.

I have my menu planned through next Tuesday since I do my shopping Wednesdays. I'll only post through Sunday though...

7/8 Tuesday- Homemade pizza or Stromboli
7/9 Wednesday- Ham and cheese omelets, toast, fruit
7/10 Thursday- Chicken parmigiana with pasta, bread
7/11 Friday- Homemade chili, FF cornbread
7/12 Saturday- Mac and cheese with hotdogs, veggies/fruit
7/13 Sunday- Crockpot Spaghetti, salad, bread

I love your Thursday plan... yum!!! And, I've love to help each other stay on track. Cash-only is TERRIFYING me but I know that it'll help us big time!

Jason sat down with our Quicken and played around with numbers to find a working budget. It came out to $130 a week for groceries, eating out, household things, and extras. I'm estimating that all the non-grocery things will cost us about $50 a week (we do have diapers to buy, hair to cut, etc) so I'm down to $80. It's not as horrible as I thought it'd be. I was expecting him to say $50 a week max!! LOL I'm still going to try to get lower than $80 because a good sale might pop up later and I'll need extra $$!
