February has been a mixed bag in terms of sticking to the menu. We did grab some Hot N Ready Pizzas and had Del Taco one night, but no actual restaurant meals. Going out to eat really isn’t in the budget. Honestly I am finding I am starting to prefer our own cooking as my husband is very helpful in the kitchen!
Also,the weather has been crazy here everything from high 70s to down to freezing in a weeks time! Then I had this weird cold/virus thing that made me so run down I literally slept this past weekend away. At least I finished season two of “The Crown” on Netflix, but it is so not my nature to sit still so long.
Anyways today we did our once a month stock up at Winco and I came up with a month worth of dinners from that trip and what I had on hand. I hope this inspires you as figuring out dinner at 5pm when everyone is hangry is no fun for anyone. These are in no order because while I like to know what to make I do not know what I will feel like three Mondays from now!
