It may sound silly to some of you, but I am really proud of myself right now. We haven't been out to eat since last Thursday evening...a whole week! It really is a milestone for us, particularly in a week that had a riding lesson, a basketball practice, an evening doctor appointment, along with our usual two kids in school and two full-time working parents.

I've got dinner started for tonight and a plan in place already for tomorrow. What a great feeling! I feel like Mom of the Year!

We are really good about not eating out for dinners. We usually save that for a special treat. Where I am having a hard time is my dh wants to eat out for lunch every day. He says that he just can't remember to pack a lunch and if he does pack it, he forgets to bring it to work with him. Can anyone give suggestions on how to get dh to pack a lunch instead of going out every day? I'm sure it would save us a grundle of money if he would!

I love reading this thread. I just posted on FB to see what my friends were having for dinner. I felt awful. Almost all of them were eating these incredibly healthy meals. I felt embarrassed to say I served Chicken Parm, Broccoli and Texas Toast

Sounds like my husband! Does he pay by debit/credit when he eats out? What I did was when our monthly statement came I showed DH all of his debits for the month. It was actually quite shocking when it all added up Since then he is better about packing a lunch.

Not silly at all, I hear you....I wanted to grab lunch out today, I work at home but was stuck in a courtroom today for hours!!!!!! I almost went out to lunch but once I thought about it I realized that it was just as easy to come home to eat leftovers.....yay me!

Dinner was cabbage ham potatoes in the crock, applesauce, And corn muffins. Tomorrow meatloaf for the kids, dh and I have a work function and we get to eat out for free...fun!

I am thawing chicken in the fridge for saturday dinner, trying to beat my aversion to thawing....

I have been craving fried chicken and only like the kind our local grocery store makes. So while I was there I grabbed some for dinner. I made mashed potatoes and brocoli at home to go with it. A semi homemade meal.

I had everything on hand to make this last night, so I made it instead of the chicken pasta, it was really good!. My 5 year old asked if it was her birthday, she always requests spaghetti, & her birthday is on Monday. Thanks for the recipe! Tonight is broccoli cheese soup with some cut up salami, cheese & crackers.
