Money Saving Monday – All By Myseeeeeeelf

i-love-saving-money-copy

Welcome to another week of saving money and taking names! 😉 This week I was flying solo since the beau was working. The upside: I only bought what was on the list (yes ladies and gents – my beau is the impulse shopper in this family!). The downside: I was totally discombobulated and never had enough hands. I guess I’ve gotten a bit spoiled… #firstworldproblems

Anyway, I’m prepping for a big interview (which I’ll be at by the time you read this) so its going to be short and sweet this week.

Meal Plan

For some reason I was feeling super inspired to turn to Mama Pea this week. <–probably because her serving sizes are a tad bigger and didn’t require any math on my end to double the recipe!

Lemon Lentil Soup
Thai Crunch Salad (Peas and Thank You)
Lasagna Rolls (using the Tofu Ricotta from here because it is the best and I want to licked the bowl clean) + arugula salad
Kale + Cheese Stuffed Tortillas
Avocado and Quinoa Chimichurri Salad
Zucchini Bread (Peas and Thank You) <–because I haven’t had some all summer and they’re almost out of season!
