Day 1. (May 28, 2019) Yesterday I mentioned we should try to eat $10 dinners for the whole next month, which coincides when my job ends. My wife didn't seem too excited about it, so I was surprised when today she said, "The $10 dinners start tonight."
My childhood comfort food was supercharged casseroles. Sometimes these were homemade, but when my mother went back to work as a secretary, they generally were boxed meals. Sometimes they were brand names and sometimes generic, but they were basically the same: Some kind of macaroni pasta and a flavor packet to which she'd add a pound of hamburger and either canned vegetables or frozen ones from our garden.
Tonight it a basic boxed meal called "Cheeseburger Casserole" that we bought at the local BJs Club Store. (BJs is like a Costco or Sam's Club. You pay $25 and you can shop there and buy flatbeds of food at huge discounts. Some people are County Club members, we're BJs Club members. Not much overlap. Yesterday my wife bought 6 of these boxed meals for $8.99. Try to find that deal at the local Country Club.
Dinner was one of these boxed meals, plus xyz. Yum
