MyPlate on My Budget, Day 5

“You just wasted a lot of money Mom.”

That’s what my seven year old said to me when he came home from school and saw shrimp defrosting on the counter.

He was right. 

That’s because neither of my children would eat it.

To make matters worse, this is what my vegetable chart looked like:

It’s already Tuesday and I still have four starchy vegetables to go!  What am I going to do?  Eat potatoes at every meal?

So this is what I made.  Shrimp, frozen corn, spinach, sauteed garlic and left-over tomato soup from last night; served over brown rice.

My kids ate macaroni and cheese.
