Sob! Believe it or not, last night we had bean burritos--with homemade refried beans and homemade tortillas. And tonight we had a tomato/yogurt cheese frittata (with, might I add, homemade yogurt cheese from homemade yogurt). And tomorrow we're having pasta with a cauliflower sauce (okay, I didn't make the pasta or the cauliflower). We have several meatless cooked-from-scratch meals a week, and yet. . . .
I know that part of this really is because I pay extra for the local free-range stuff--the eggs for the frittata, for instance, are $4.00 a carton. But still. . . again, gah. And sob.

Okay, seriously, I'm looking at our menu plan and I think the Once a Month thing is going to kick in starting next week. There are actually very few items I need to buy for the rest of the month. I don't know if I can make my goal, but it might be somewhere in the ballpark--and I wouldn't have known I had to try so hard if I hadn't started tracking. So it's all good. I'll just keep telling myself that.
