So, it’s another interesting week! I only had to plan 5 meals this week instead of 6. Monday John and I are going to a work Christmas party that’s serving dinner, and Saturday is John’s family Christmas so I had a little more planning to do for that, dinner-wise. I think I’m getting pretty good at planning cheap/somewhat-healthy dinners! Let’s see what I got this week.
