Since I’m not spending as much time on social media these days, I worry up and coming chefs like Ricky LaBlue won’t get enough meal ideas and instead will make the same steak meal he specializes in over and over again. To alleviate that, here are my meal plans for the weekend, of which little money was spent.
This morning, for example, I went looking into my freezer for stuff to rescue from an almost certain frozen death. I buy stuff when it’s on special in some quantity, put the excess in the freezer, then hope I remember to use the various chicken, shrimp, fish and other stuff before the Nationals win another World Series.
Today’s search prompted me to go to the grocery store to pick up about $20 worth of stuff to turn what I found into several meals. Here’s how it turned out:
This should get us through the weekend until Monday. And that $20 included a box of extra large Little Debbie Oatmeal pies, the stuff of which Ricky obsesses about (he once tweeted we need to have a national conversation about how addictive they are). Las Vegas has placed odds that the oatmeal pies won’t last the weekend as long as the meals do 😊
As you can see, it was so good I had to hire additional security to keep an eye on incoming threats
Kind of you to publish this as I was completing the 2nd day of a liquid diet. But I made up for it tonight!
