Lunches, rambling

January 4th, 2020 at 03:54 pm

Happy New Year!

Still here, same goal for 2020- pay down the student loans! Will post updated totals when the current pending payment finishes processing.

Recently realized that my 401K match vests 100% at 3 years, which is a bummer. I’ve been there 1.5 years so far and don’t currently have any plans to leave, but life is unpredictable.

Today I made a batch of lunches for the freezer using things I already had on hand. I used this recipe ( but swapped out some types of beans and fusilli for the elbow macaroni. Didn’t have tomato sauce but had a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, so I added that and tossed in a teaspoon of taco seasoning and two packets of leftover taco bell sauce that were lurking in a drawer. It used up the last bit of a bag of shredded cheddar that has been lingering in the freezer.

    Good job using up. That's my goal in 2020.

    Yes, great job using up! I like that budget bytes site, my daughter and I use several recipes of hers. I will also be on a mission to use things up once our girls return to college.

    Good luck with your student loan progress this year!

    Way to go on using up what you have and planning for lunches!

    Hope you can get vested. You are right, life is unpredictable.
