Meal Prep, Car Repair and a Busy Week Ahead

June 26th, 2017 at 05:34 am

It was a very relaxing weekend. I didn't win the parking pass, but it's okay. We actually have a garage and I do early enough hours that I get a decent spot. The coveted spot was in the secure part of the garage that requires a fob to access it and the door to that garage opens right in front of the office building. Plus, that spot was guaranteed, but ah well...

I bought about $50 worth of groceries over the weekend and did some meal prep yesterday. I hard-boiled a dozen eggs for snacks and salads, used up the last of the potatoes, made our sandwiches for lunch today, and planned the remainder of the week.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, we have commitments which will require us to be out (the work 5k and 2 nights of kickball). The meals for the rest of the week are as follows:

Tonight: Homemade subs with a side of veggies or fruit
Tomorrow: Either...leftover burgers or food at the race (they're going to have bbq style food and it's all for a good cause)
Wednesday: Frozen pizza or burritos
Thursday: Frozen pizza or burritos (whatever we didn't eat the night before)
Friday: Hot dogs with side salads

My Zaycon Fresh chicken comes in tomorrow evening, so I'll have to also make time to process that over the next few days. We'll also grill up a batch for grilled chicken salad lunches the second half of the week.

My car ended up coming out to $660ish. They replaced the battery, did transmission and coolant flushes, and since they're due next month, performed inspection and emissions. They called after doing the battery and said they could hear the noise, but couldn't figure out where it was coming from. However, the flushes must have done the trick because it's gone. While it sucks to spend that much, my car is now up to date on maintenance and driving like normal.

One last thing...DH and I decided to play hooky from work on Friday and have an us day. With all the overtime he's been working, we hardly see each other. An amusement park not too far from us has free military admission for the July 4th celebrations. While my ticket will still cost money, we can get it using the military discount. We will plan to eat a hearty breakfast and bring sandwiches to store in the car to minimize eating in the park. (We can't bring them in, but there are picnic tables in the parking lot.) The ticket for me will be about $40 with tax. Hoping to keep the total day's spending under $60 (not including gas/parking).
