This has been a heck of a week for my finances. Some of it was self-inflicted (the foster puppy shopping spree), some was business related (my tenants with their partial rent payment), and some was inevitable ($1,000 for medical bills). Driving home today I thought about stopping for fast food. I was tired, I haven't had a chance to go grocery shopping and I have spent so much money this week, will a little more matter? But I didn't do it. I remembered what I usually do when I run out of leftovers or quick meals. I cook!
I had alfredo sauce in the fridge, frozen chicken, frozen vegetables and dry pasta. All I had to do was boil the water and put it all together. I had chicken alfredo for dinner, made enough for lunch tomorrow and some extra noodles to eat with spaghetti sauce and cheese later on.
