After 14 hours in the car, we returned home last night at 11 p.m. We cleared our refrigerator and pantry before leaving, so there is absolutely no food in the house, not even the most basic staples like milk and bread. Luckily, our 14-hour car ride came in handy. We had plenty of time for menu planning and list making. All that’s left is to head to the grocery store tonight after work to replenish our stock.
We’re absolutely exhausted, and we had no time last weekend to relax or run any of our usual weekend errands, so we want to keep this week’s meal plan as simple and frugal as possible. Here’s what we’re cooking:
Monday: Beef tacos and refried beans
Tuesday: BLT salad
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner (eggs and bacon)
Thursday: Cauliflower mac & cheese
Friday: Turkey wraps
I’m remembering now why we usually plan a day at the end of our vacations to catch up at home and get some rest. But we had such a great time last weekend that I’m glad we stayed the extra day, even if it means we’ll spend the rest of the week playing catch up.
