I was able to use a lot of what we had in our fridge and freezer for meals this week, which is good as this was pantry week! I only had to pick up a few things from the store, and I had a gift card so I got away with spending nothing! Plus, I had some great coupons! Free eggs with a purchase of $10 or more and $1.50 off any cheese purchase. I got some sliced cheese from the deli, and it was $2.89 before the coupon. $1.39 isn't too bad for about 15 slices of cheese! I only planned through Friday for this week.
Alright... Here's the menu:
Monday: Eggs, Sausage, and Hashbrown. Breakfast is always one of our favorites and it's easy and cheap!
Tuesday: French Onion Burgers. Hamburgers browned on the stove and simmered in french onion soup. Lay a slice of cheese on it right before serving. It basically needs no toppings or condiments!
Wednesday: Sandwiches. We eat on the run on Wednesday because of youth group. Ham and Turkey sandwiches it is!
Thursday: Pancakes! My girls love pancakes. I figured we could handle breakfast twice in one week!
Friday: Pizza. Friday is almost the only day this week we've got nothing happening, so we'll order pizza and have a movie night with the girls. :-)
All in all, I spent about $15 for the groceries we needed for this week.
But, with that being said, we had a great time! It was a great first race. The atmosphere was electric and everyone was very excited. After it was over it was cool to look out over the crowd and see the formerly white sea of people that were all covered in color. Here are our before and after pictures....
Later that day, we had the opportunity to go downtown Indianapolis with Sarah and her husband. We ate dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory (one of my favorites) and then we spent some time walking around and enjoying the city. Sarah and her husband and never been downtown Indy, and it was a beautiful night. We stopped at The Circle to take some pictures on the Monument. Here is Sarah and I in our matching Color Me Rad shirts...
All in all, it was a great weekend!
