April No Spend Challenge

April 2, 2010

So it’s April, the month of federal, state and withholding taxes in addition to all the regular bills.  Good times.  The challenge is to eat at home, unless being treated, do no unnecessary spending, and (as I’m always one for a positive goal) make two to four laps around the neighborhood circle daily.

Here’s the menu plan for the next few weeks.  It should help eliminate spur of the moment trips out and the what’s for dinner quandry.

04/01  Steaks, mashed potatoes, steamed sugar snap peas, sauteed mushrooms

04/02  Grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup (both kids are sick and all they could tolerate)

04/03 Salmon burgers with spicy guacamole, steamed broccoli, steamed carrots

04/05 Mother in Law provided leftovers from Easter lunch (couldn’t go, sick kids and mama)

04/06  Grits, sausage, strawberries (mama sicker, kids marginally better)

04/07  polenta, spaghetti sauce, veggies TBD

04/08  Nana’s red beans and saffron rice

04/09  Chicken pot pie with biscuit topping

04/10  Salmon patties (tinned salmon), broccoli cheese rice

04/11  In laws

04/12  Black bean sweet potato enchiladas

04/13  Bacon, eggs, toast, fruit

04/14  Fried rice

04/15  Chcikpeas and garlic with sizzling sage

04/16  Artichoke risotto (will need arborio rice)

04/17 Cheese pizza

04/18 In laws

04/19  Nachos (chili already in freezer)
