Trying to Survive Til Payday

October 7th, 2012 at 03:57 pm

This past week has not been so good. We had forgotten that our car tags/taxes payment is due by the end of September, but we never even received a bill from the county for it so we forgot about it. We did get it paid on Monday, though, and surprisingly, with no late fee. I have put a reminder on my calendar for this in the future, because it is our responsibility to remember. The amount we had to pay was only $66.63, but the checking account was already thin so that did not do it any favors. My chin is still up. The turkeys will not get me down.

I am using a mostly use-it-up approach on meals this week.

1) leftover white chili - 1 meal for me http://allrecipes.com/recipe/spicy-white-chili-with-chicken/...

2) leftover mac & cheese - 1 meal for dh

3) Sweet and Sour Slaw - 1 meal for dh and I http://allrecipes.com/recipe/sweet-and-sour-coleslaw/detail.... - I added chicken for some protein.

4) Kale with beef salad - 1 meal for dh and I

5) Stir fry with roast beef, frozen veggies, and brown rice - 1 lunch meal for me (already had the roast beef, frozen veggies, and brown rice)

6) Oatmeal with steva, almond milk, cinnamon, and ginger - 4 meals for dh and I - (already had oatmeal, stevia, almond milk, cinnamon, and ginger)

7) Eggs and Ham. Side of grapefruit. 3 meals for dh and I

8) Quinoa Tabbouleh With Chicken - 3 lunch meals for me

9) Green Salad with turnip greens, chicken, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, carrots, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil - 1 meal for dh and I (already had turnip greens, sunflower seeds, carrots, and apple cider vinegar)

10) Caron's Kickin' Quinoa Salad - 1 meal for dh and I http://allrecipes.com/recipe/carons-kickin-quinoa-salad/deta...

11) Waldorf Salad - 1 meal for dh and I http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/63366494/waldorf-salad-... - I tweaked the traditional recipe for Waldorf salad to add flavor and be more filling. Delicious. Even dh liked it.

    Your menu lists inspire me, especially the quinoa recipes -- so almost the perfect food, quinoa is. I adore Waldorf Salad but I am the only one in my house who does Frown. Thanks for sharing!
