We're back on track with our menu plan this week, and actually for the month of October, giving ourselves a little challenge. In order to both save money and create some better eating habits, we're committing to not eating out for dinner in the month. (Eating out = restaurants and to-go restaurant food that we have to buy in addition to groceries. Free eating out is alright in our book, so we'll still do that if the opportunity comes our way.) We hope that eating at home will also help us to pack our leftovers more for lunch at work, therefore equal less eating out for lunch, too! I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
For our first week I've included this weekend since it's part of October....
