No, we're not going to stop eating, but we are going to drastically reduce how much restaurant food we consume. I think bumping our grocery budget up by $200 to $700 per month and planning meals one week at a time will make a big difference in how and where we spend money on food.
I put the new plan into action today. This week's planned meals:
- Italian Sausage and Wild Mushroom Risotto (there are leftovers!)
- Roasted Chicken with Winter Vegetables
- Wild Salmon Chowder
- Honey Glazed Chicken with New Potatoes
- Hearty Crab Bisque
