Where did February go???
Don't get me wrong, I can't WAIT for spring, and the beginning of March is when spring fever really hits me...but I feel like I lost a week somewhere! February was a crazy month for us, so I shouldn't be too surprised.
We did alright with the menu plan last week, but ended up resorting to leftovers, leftovers and MORE leftovers from Friday on. The good news is, I have a relatively clean fridge to start the week! This week I'm going to try working completely out of the pantry, I have final Once a Month Cook-Off shopping to do and the cooking to wrap up over the course of this week. I have to avoid spending money on anything but OAMC so my budget doesn't go crazy this month. I also have the Boy Wonder's THIRD birthday party on Sunday, but I'm making homemade pizzas for that, so it won't cut TOO much into our budget. I am really looking forward to finishing up the OAMC cooking, it will leave me with enough meals to get through March and part of April!
