Menu: Week 2

08 November 2011

Summary of Last Week:

All meals were cooked according to plan. Except one. On Saturday I put the roast in the slow cooker at 11 a.m., and at 5:30 it wouldn't shred. I waited until 6:00 and it still wouldn't shred. By 6:45 we were all super hungry, and the roast fought me. Brandon called it, I protested, and he ordered pizza. Squeals filled the house, because take-out pizza is pretty rare around here (unless we are in Chicago and then all bets are off). In my maturity I pouted, ate salad, smelled the pizza, took my heavy-duty digestive enzymes, and ate a piece. The roast cooked another few hours, and we ate it after church on Sunday.

Unplanned for Pizza: $12.00

Total for Last week: $158.81 (this included all meals, pizza, my stock-up on nuts, some organic condensed milk I bought on clearance for the holidays, and the gallons of water for drinking and cooking)
