Last week went well, although we did eat out once...shocker--but we had a gift card and we did take out, so that minimized any expense on our part. :) I got to go to my super cheap grocery store during my visit home last week, so we are enjoying the fruits of my labor. Ha, ha. Before we went home, I actually planned our meals for the whole month of May. It took every ounce of my being to do so, but it was so worth it. Now I only need to shop for dairy and produce. So that will be nice.
Sunday-Split pea soup with ham (still using ham from the freezer from Easter), cornbread
