Menu Monday- 4/2

I can’t believe it’s already April!  Before we know it, it’s going to be Christmas again!  Gotta tighten up that budget even more to get prepared! Confused smile  Speaking of budgets, we ended the month of March pretty much right on budget with our groceries.  That was good.  We also did the bulk of our shopping together, which I very much enjoyed.  We’re going to continue that this month.  In addition, my husband let an extra job go that makes a huge cut to our budget, but it was an all night extra job on Friday night, and he was just working too much.  He had literally had 3 days off since Thanksgiving.  It’s going to be tight without that money, but it was the right decision.  My husband was working himself into the ground.  We should have our tax money back this month, and we plan to pay off our truck, so that will make a difference in the budget, it will still be tight, but we’ll make it.  Heck, we make it through the 20% pay cut last year, we’ll make it through this too Winking smile.  Having him home this weekend was an adjustment for me, as I’m used to running the show on the weekends.  I was a little cranky, and I feel SO bad, because I am REALLY REALLY glad he’ll be home, I just need to readjust Embarrassed smile.  I’m very lucky to have an understanding husband who loves me in spite of myself….  Eye rolling smile

MondayWaffles, (Boys Cook), with Strawberries

Tuesday:  White Castle Burgers

Wednesday:  Chicken and Dumpling Soup

  1. First of all Bite your tongue for even mentioning Christmas...

    Second of all I am glad you have your hubby home again, family is more important than the few extra bucks!

    I miss shopping with my ex, we used to have fun at the grocery store.
