  • Tracy: Half PB&J Sandwich, banana


  • Josh: Rice and Beans, leftover pasta

“The Last Supper”:

  • Both: Chicken with honey mustard sauce, sweet potatoes and fresh steamed broccoli


  • Brownies ***spent $3.00 on the ingredients total, $2.58 of emergency money remaining.*** We had heard that in order t- make “skinny brownies,” you can substitute the eggs and oil for a can of diet soda, so we subbed diet coke. The brownies were AWFUL and I didn’t eat them. Note to self: don’t experiment with new recipes when living on a limited budget.
