Keeping it kind AND frugal!

My son, mother-in-law and mom all share a birthday in November, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and there is already a countdown to Christmas at the local department store 😵 With all this on the horizon, it’s time to tighten the belt a little and get creative with budgeting!

On Monday nights my kiddo plays mini mite hockey so that’s the night we usually have to throw something together in a hurry and hope it doesn’t break the bank OR cause me heart palpitations as I try to work, prep dinner and throw kids in the car simultaneously…it’s definitely a challenge!! Tonight, we decided to pack veggie burgers in tin foil, fill a Thermos with tea and treat ourselves to french fries from the concession stand 😂 No one said HEALTHIER! I mean…we are watching hockey!

Overall, I’d give it a 8 out of 10 on the satisfying/frugal scale! Love that it was easy and warm and you can’t beat Gardein!! I just need to swap out the fries next time 😉

Anyone else have to pack dinner on the fly to squeeze in family events? What’s your go-to meal?
