This Week’s Meal Plan – Week Five

This Week’s Meal Plan – Week Five

I am slowly adding the hits to our repertoire, and the misses are falling by the wayside – it will be a while before we do tofu again. I have also invested in a bread maker, and I try to have freshly baked bread at dinner every night. We have worked out that it costs under a dollar to make a 2 lb loaf of wholewheat or white bread. This week I shall be using the bread maker to knead and rise the pizza dough – I am curious to see if it tastes better that way.

It was difficult this week – I usually do the shopping Sunday afternoon, but I was driving to get the boys from their weekend with their Dad, so that didn’t happen. I felt I spent most of the week playing catch-up. I need to shop first thing Sunday morning on those days that I have that epic drive. Live and learn, I suppose.
