Menu Monday

For the next two weeks we will be doing something that we have talked about for a while but have never gotten around to doing... rice and beans for two weeks! We have a few things in the fridge left over that I am trying to finish off while Taylor is in San Antonio til Wednesday, but once that is gone we will be eating rice and beans and maybe some tortillas ;). Not only does this help us realize why we are doing what we do (like when we originally ate from the Food Pak) but now since we have dates for our trip, we really have to focus on saving up some more eating out money! We will keep you posted with how it goes...

On a side note, Taylor's brother, Brady, just found out about our food adventure... funny because he was here eating with us for about a week! I guess eating off $10 a week isn't as different as you would think. It started off being stressful during our grocery trips, putting things back, being over-charged, but once you get the hang of it is pretty easy.


  1. Just checking to see how the rice & bean 2 weeks of eating is coming along. Do you get tired of eating the same thing all the time??

  2. Amy,

    It is going well... :) My work schedule this week is set up so that I am working my regular hours plus late evening/early mornings that means the office buys dinner(Not planned but it is nice). So, rice and beans this week is my lunch, and I don't mind it at all. Bean tacos for breakfast aren't bad either.

    Thanks for checking in!

    Hope your having fun in Dallas! :D
