This year is flying. I can’t believe next weekend is already March. We’re doing okay on our grocery spending — a total of $268 for the month, so we’re averaging about $90/week. Not bad, considering I’ve been able to rebuild much of our stockpile (especially the freezer). M has been doing an okay job not drinking Red Bull and I’ve been doing an okay job going to the gym. I’ve been doing the Couch to 5K workout, not that I have any desire to actually run a 5k, but I like the variation in the workout and the challenge to make it through all of the running without stopping. Since we’re not doing our Culinary Challenge (Fried Chicken) until tonight, I don’t know what this coming week will be. I may have to have M pick early so I can do all of my grocery shopping at once.
Sunday: Beef Tostadas
Monday: Drunken Noodles
Tuesday: One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta*
Wednesday: Spice Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops
Thursday: Stir Fried Beef with Asparagus
Friday: Chicken TBD… (Whole Foods had a great sale yesterday so I stocked up on two 4-pound birds)
Saturday: Culinary Challenge Night
*Via Facebook and Twitter, I mentioned that I started a “Hey Jacki, Cook This” board on Pinterest. Let’s face it: we all pin tons and tons of recipes and some are just a giant fail. I’m taking the guesswork out of those recipes for you. Pin something to this board, and I’ll get it in the rotation. And of course, there will be a blog post about it. If you’d like to join the board, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
