HBHW Menu Day 3

HBHW Menu Day 1
HBHW Menu Day 2

Yesterday was day 3 of following the Hillbilly Housewife's $70 low cost menu. We had a great breakfast of french toast made with the homemade bread and Mike was very happy to have a good lunch to take to work. I plan to get better about packing his lunch every day.

I had an extremely busy afternoon. My mom came to town and we ran errands and before I knew it, it was 5:00 and Cindy had to be at softball practice at 5:45. I usually have supper ready to go by 5:00 on softball days. Just poor planning and not paying attention led to picking up this instead of following my menu.

I only spent $10, but I'm kicking myself for it. I'm still within my weekly food budget, but I'm trying to put every little penny into our emergency fund instead of spending it on pizza.

We're back on track on the menu today though and I'll update you either tonight or tomorrow. Marcia is finishing up her science project that is due tomorrow so I may not have access to the computer for awhile. :)

I always kick myself too when I don't plan for dinner properly! At least everyone got yummy pizza, not bologna sandwiches, right?

And it could have been worse, you could have spent a whole lot more for even less nutritious stuff at some other fast food place. Pizza's a good choice when you're in a bind.

You all are making me feel better about picking up pizza. It WAS good, but Bobby (teenage son) made me feel even better when he said "Mom, this isn't nearly as good as your homemade pizza". :)
