Burgers and fries
I'm really trying to reduce the amount of fast food meals each week. Every Thursday I stop on my way home and pick up Dh (and Ds, if he's around) a burger and fries from the local burger drive-up joint. That I am keeping in the budget, but trying to cook at home the rest of the week. It's SO hard for me. I HATE cooking, plain and simple. I did well Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday - 4 days in a row!. Last night I went to McDonald's for our dinner - $18. But it's also been very warm this past week and I just didn't want to spend a 5th night in a row in a hot kitchen making dinner. Tonight I'll make tuna casserole and then tomorrow will be Thursday fast food night. 2 nights of fast food expense in one week is better than 3 or 4, I guess. Dh would eat it every night if I let him and believe me - some nights I'd like to!
