Homemade Week, Day 4

The last of our true "Homemade Days" - our breakfast and lunch menus continued as the previous days. We concluded that we'd like to keep up with most of the items that we homemade.  However, we need to spread them out over the week or two weeks, and make extra so we only have to make each item once or twice a month.  We both agreed that our dinner choices, while AMAZING, were a bit complicated for regular dinners.  They should be saved for the weekend or company.  We also concluded that we spent a little more than we usually do on groceries, but ended up with two weeks worth of food or with enough ingredients that we could make a second batch.  In the end we finished a little ahead.  So without further adieu, here is our last menu and some photos.

Breakfasts and Lunches:

  •  same as Day 2 & 3


Dinner for Elizabeth & Eric and our guest, Joey:

  • Orange Chicken (Healthy College Cookbook)
  • Steamed Green Beans
  • Left over side of pasta
  • Home brew (choice of IPA or Espresso Stout) 
  • Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (It was gross. Just ask Joey.)  

Here are some photos of our homemade foods:
