Day 4 — Christi
The meal I’ve been waiting for: tuna noodle casserole with peas! As I cooked the casserole, I ate one of the cans of tuna I bought for the casserole. I was just plain hungry! I made enough so I could have it for 3 lunches, which is the number of lunches I have left of the Challenge. I think I’m going to make it!
I believe my hardest day was Monday, the first day of the challenge. I was grumpy, wanted coffee, and was anxious about how I’d do the Challenge during the upcoming weekend. My brothers and I planned a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents way back in January, and Saturday (Day 6 of the Challenge) is their big party. Of course there will be food. I have decided to give myself a pass that day, since it’s a once in a lifetime event for my parents, and I don’t want to be grouchy or lack the energy I need to help set up/cook/pack up the party.
I have been thinking a lot about the party, especially the food (the area of the party I am responsible for). Even though you can throw a very lovely party on a limited food budget, my resources allowed me to purchase items without a lot of worry and stress about how I was going to feed everyone.
