I planned my meals last week but forgot to post them last week the girls and I did eat out but that was planned only spent $15 for 4 people to eat at a sit down restraunt(I had the younger two share one kids meal and the oldest got her baked potato free because the manager felt bad about her severe food allergies)and the other time we ate out was a planned free party with the mom's club and dh ate at home both nites plus some dinners were switched to something already in the house so no added exzpense and those meals can be in this weeks mix of dinner meals

so this week so far is make meals from what is in the freezer/cupboards
