I am convinced that we spend WAY too much money eating out. With 3 hungry boys and a hungry husband to feed, it was gotten expensive to eat out. Even fast food is about $30 a pop. My two oldest just aren’t satisfied with “Kid’s meals” any more and going to a sit down meal is $60+ dollars and doing even once or twice a week adds up. Half the time we are eating out I am not really pleased with the meal. It is very rare that when I cook at home dinner is not delicious and satisfying. It’s really the mess and pure laziness that is the problem. Well, that and now that my kids’ baseball seasons have started we are busy with games and practices 3-5 days a week. Enough is enough though. It’s time to quit spending all this mula and cook at home. We are going to go 30 without eating out. Here I plan to blog the meals we are having. Now let me tell you now these will not all be healthy and there may be some repeats. I would like to try as many new things as possible so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE feel free to send me your recipes or favorite sites for recipes. I will be also looking for some lunch and breakfast recipes for the weekends with every one is home. I am also going to try to keep all recipes budget friendly. Lastly…. I can’t promise you that all recipes will be a hit. I am going to post the good and the bad. With all that being said here is what we had the last two nights.
Day 1 was just a boring old Shake-n-Bake pork chop and Rice-a-roni night. The kids and the hubby love this so I try to throw it in there ever couple of weeks or so.
Day 2 we tried a crock pot recipe off of Budget Savvy Diva’s website. Not So Sloppy Joes. This is a really simple take on sloppy joes that is a crown pleaser even for the pickiest kids. I did not add onions to mine since I hate them but I did add plenty of onion powder and spiced it up a little with some chili powder and cayenne pepper. My husband LOVED these.
Tonight I will do a more in-depth post on tonight’s dinner since I didn’t decide to blog about this till just now. I plan to post every night or the next morning on what we had for dinner and if we try a new recipe for lunch or breakfast. I will not promise to post every day because let’s face it, I probably won’t. I am not the great blogger in history. Oh well.
Remember to comment, share, and subscribe. Oh and again if you have a great recipe for me to try let me know.. Especially crock pot recipes (which a lot of mine will be)
Thanks for reading!
