    Not much time to post this, so I'm gonna keep it quick.

    We had Easy Beef Pasta Skillet. I got in from the Ragu website. It was very good, although a little soupy at first. We also had peas and biscuits. This was supposed to be Wednesdays meal, but dh's mom is making us enchiladas tomorrow, yummy! So, I bumped the meatloaf that I had planned because it takes so long and because I had fresh ingredients to use for the skillet dinner.

    Trying to keep our dinner meals at $5 or under.

    Today was spent shopping for all the items that I need to fill up apartments for the Hockey players. I am responsible for furnishing 12 apartments for 19 hockey players.

I think we hit 2 Walmarts, Dillons, Dollar Tree and 3 Dollar General's to get what we needed. Needless to say, I did not feel like cooking, so we went to Cici's and I used ...
