<p>I hadn't seen a thread like this for awhile, but I thought we could keep each other accountable for having home-cooked meals and saying no to meals out and delivered pizzas.  This is probably the busiest and costliest time of the year, so let's come on here and support each other! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tonight: Vegan Papardelle Cacciatore</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Who else is in? </p>

<p>I'm in.  I'd like to eat at home for all but three or four (including at one on the way to my folks for the holidays) meals this month. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Last night DH and DSs split two large veggie burgers.  I had an egg salad sandwich and we all had corn and oven fried potatos. Then I went to the grocery store and did a big stock up.  I think we should be set for awhile.</p>

<p>Dinner tonight will be hamburgers and fries.  We're completely overrun with beef right now so we're trying to make a dent in that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know there will be a few days we don't eat at home (my birthday, a potluck night, Christmas Eve dinner) but there shouldn't be many.  I do see a few lunches out while Christmas shopping happening, but I can deal with that.</p>

<p>ooh can I jump in now? I am feeling the pull towards eating out as schedules start to get busier.  I was just trying to put together a plan for tonight, we get home after 5 and we curl at 7.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>tonight- spagetti squash with tomato or pesto.</p>
<p>tomorrow- homemade veggie pizza</p>
<p>Sunday- turkey dinner (20 lbs) this should carry us through most of the week.</p>

Tonight is leftover soup. There isn't a whole lot left so I'll cook up a chicken breast and shred it up and add a little more cheese and rice milk to it. Might also have green smoothies on the side.
