Hit me with your best shot... badum badum....

I'm going to give this another shot! I really liked blogging but between school and a little one, it was too much before.  Now, 4 years later, I'm going to do it!  (Hopefully).

What's on my mind... Budgeting.

I started using mint.com to set up a budget which ultimately led me to meal planning.  It seems to always come back to meal planning.  We spend a ridiculous amount of money on food out because I"m unprepared for meals during the week.  (Boo on me, I know).  Nothing makes meal planning better than Pinterest and a free downloadable monthly template!  I'm using this little gem...


Because I'm currently living with my parents, I only cook on Wednesday, Saturdays, and sometimes Fridays.

Wednesday, I'm making Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with Cole Slaw and Asparagus.


Friday, we are going to be out shopping so we'll have to get something out (sigh).

Saturday, I'm making Slow Cooker Chipotle Steak Quesadillas with Guacamole.



Whose excited about dinner?!!  I am!  Now to calculate up the calories so I can track them.

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with Cole Slaw- 331per sandwich including slaw

Slow Cooker Chipotle Steak Quesadillas with Guacamole- 715 per quesadilla

Not too bad.  My quesadillas will have to be made on a day that I go to the gym to make up for those extra calories!  But it'll be delicious.  I'll let you know how it goes and if they are fianc√© and daughter approved.
