Jeremy drives an 18 wheeler over the road & is out for 8 to 10 days at a time with his new company.  These new home times and a larger refrigerator in his truck mean that he is able to eat more meals in the truck.  This saves a TON because 2 to 3 meals out each day, mostly at a truck stop, add up to big bucks quick!

I'm going to start cooking daily (something I don't do since it is just me at home - I tend to eat the leftovers from a meal for days before cooking again) and freezing a portion or two for him.  We have a vacuum sealer and plan to borrow a single electric burner from J's dad so the initial expenses won't be very high.

This week he did store bought "heat and eat" kind of meals just to test things out.  He enjoyed the meals but they are expensive and are full of sodium and other things he really does not need in his diet.  We're hoping that making these meals will allow for some savings in our budget.
