After all that planning and prepping I was ready to have a nice home cooked meal. However the end of my day did not go as planned, I never defrosted anything, and I was feeling GRUMPY. The end result did not result in take-out ( I am so proud). The kids ate raviolis because they just could not wait until after 7:00 to eat. We ate eggs. I made some adjustments to the menu. We were going to eat eggs later in the week, but now we won't. I do have something in the fridge that I can cook tomorrow.
I think the best thing about not eating out is that I actually still have money left in my account. That may sound ridiculous, but I am always out of money by the time I get paid, and I really should not be.
