Budget Meals

Spaghetti is definitely one of my go-to meals in the colder months. Especially when we’re craving some comfort. Tonight seemed like a good night for that.

January is always tough. I feel like it’s also the fastest month of the year. We’re almost through. Finances are tight. While better times should be ahead, now is still hard.

I just happened to go meat shopping on the right day. I was able to get twice what I had planned. Half of the beef went in the freezer, the other half was tonight’s spaghetti with leftovers. Half the chicken went into the freezer, while the other half will be put in the crockpot in the morning for whatever I decide to make for dinner tomorrow.

I was also able to make some box muffins for our bedtime snack and might have enough left for breakfast in the am. Everything is easier with a full belly. Hopefully the carbs will help everyone sleep.
