1 Week Til Payday, Food Challenge

September 9th, 2012 at 08:49 am

Hi, friends and neighbors. I have 1 week until my payday on Friday. My checking is a little low, so we will be using it very little this week. I have to mail a package on Monday. That and maybe getting some extra lettuce or kale should be all I use it for.

We have some leftover spinach, garlic, parsley, oregano, lettuce, cucumbers, 1 green pepper, carrots, and white, red, and green onions from last week, so in true frugalness, I will be using those in my meals.

1) Thai Salad with whole grain rice and chicken. - 1 dinner meal - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/thai-salad-with-whole-grain-bro... (I already had olive oil, garlic, and onion. This recipe also calls for peanut butter, but I don't really like that taste in salad.)

2) Green Salad with Carrots and Cucumbers, and either chicken or ham - 1 dinner meal - (I just made this one up. We already have lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, carrots, cucumbers, ham, and chicken to make it.)

3) Quinoa and Chicken Salad - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/carons-kickin-quinoa-salad/deta... - 1 dinner meal (We already have the quinoa, mayo, lemon juice, black pepper, chicken, and tuna. This one is really good and fast to make.)

4) Grilled Chinese Chicken Salad Slaw. http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/grilled-chinese-chicken-s... 1 dinner meal - (We already have the ginger spice and olive oil. We are substituting lemon juice for lime juice and white onion for scallions.)

5) Ham and Bean Soup - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/basic-ham-and-bean-soup/detail.aspx - 4 lunch meals. (This is absolutely delicious and so easy to make, it almost makes itself. I will top with a little green onion.)

6) Oatmeal. Side of grapefruit. Side of ham. - 4 meals.

7) Eggs and ham with garlic, onion, and parsley. Sliced tomato. - 3 meals.

8) I am not sure about the rest of the meals. Hmm...
