Eating In: Taco Tuesday (Day 1)

What are the odds we will be able to stick to this for a month straight?  Some say slim, some say we can do it.  The real test will be blogging each day to keep everyone in the know.  Can we blog for a month straight… that is a test in itself.

Last night we had some visitors, on day one – normally we would have went out and ate… however, since we disclaimed our goals beforehand, everyone seemed happy to join in on the Eating In challenge.  So last night, we fed ourselves and my parents and our 2 nieces.  Even with a few more guests, we probably spent about 15$ tops for the entire meal.  If we would have went out and ate… geeze… probably would have cost 100$ or so.

Here is the spread, and then we will give you a breakdown of the meal.

Eating In: Taco Tuesday (Day 1)

Tacos up close

This meal consisted of the following:

Crispy Tacos

Burritos/Soft Taco (whatever you want to call them)

Refried Beans

Chips & Salsa (homemade)


Toppings (lettuce/cilantro/tomatoes/cheese)

Not a bad first meal.  Shala & I make some killer guacamole & salsa, so that was a awesome to snack on until the meal was ready.  Throw in a few cold beers and some good conversation and we were set.  Like I said before, we had a few of the things for this meal stored away in our cabinets/fridge (beans, chips, cilantro, lettuce, green onion, beer) – so it made this meal even a little cheaper (remember we are pulling the prices from our first venture to the store only).  The lettuce came from the Aerogarden – so that is always a good thing.

So dinner #1 is in the books.  Breakfast & lunches were of course on track yesterday as well, but who wants to see pictures of our sandwiches or breakfast bars?  That wouldn’t be that cool now would it?  Nope.  We will try and get a post up in the coming days of our menu we chose for the next two weeks, that way everyone can get ideas maybe, to change up your own household menu.
