DINNER

Big-Hearted Macaroni & Cheese with Artichokes $1.21

total $2.23

We aren’t exactly winning any nutrition awards today, now are we? We started off with good intentions and just got busy. We meant to eat other fruits and vegetables throughout the day and it just never happened. It seems like every weekend there is a big long list of things we want to accomplish, and it feels impossible to ever get to them all. Do you know the feeling? Well hey, at least we got to go on a date to see Blue Valentine at our favorite little theater in Tacoma.

And hey, how cool is it that we had enough leftovers in our fridge to eat different meals for lunch and dinner?

I do have to admit that Levi ate some fast food french fries. That sounds kind of terrible, but I swear there is an explanation. He was drawing a still life of salt and french fries for an art project, and he paid for the fries with his own money. This from the kid who could probably count the number of times he’s had french fries from a fast food chain on one hand. He blew some minds in health class this semester when they found out he has never eaten at McDonald’s ever before, and we didn’t break that record since he thought the Wendy’s package would be more attractive.

Oh, and grits with caramelized onions? A+. We intended to add cheese and realized it didn’t need it. Now if only grits had a significant amount of dietary fiber we’d be set.
