(Hanging head in shame.) I’m so sorry food budget readers and fellow bloggers. I’m a complete delinquent this week. I’m a day late (again), and as I’ve written before, routine is everything for me. If I don’t follow my tried-and-true routine for meal planning, budgeting, and shopping, the whole system falls apart, and this week was one of those weeks. I feel like I spend more time apologizing for my slips than celebrating my successes here on the blog, but I suppose when I signed on for a 52 week challenge, I should have anticipated some rough weeks.
But I did do one good thing this week, I had friends over, twice. First, I hosted a La Leche League meeting in my home on Tuesday. I made a little snack of strawberries, grapes, crackers, and a spread for the crackers. Nothing fancy. On Thursday, I held a little pot luck lunch for the National Day of Prayer. The pot luck concept is genius! I’m so glad that I remembered this really fun way to open our home, enjoy some friends, eat yummy food, and not feel overwhelmed by food prep or the stretching of a budget. Pot luck is perfect.
Promising a better week to come!
