What I Spent
Last Friday I took Zoe out for a shopping trip ($67.83) so she could pick out some birthday food that we don’t normally buy (ice cream, orange juice, sun chips, juice boxes, and pop tarts!).
And I made another smallish trip on Monday ($42.39), pictured here:
When you are out of laundry detergent AND toilet paper, things are getting dire.
My shopping adds up to $110.22.
Week 1: $76
Week 2: $120
Week 3: $154
Week 4: $110
That puts me at $460 for the month, which is $115 per week. Sweet!
What We Ate
I was flipping thru my ATK Quick Cookbook with the girls, and when I came to the BLT salad page, they said, “Ooh, can we have that tonight?”
So, that’s what we did.
I made a pan of garlic breadsticks as well.
I made my new recipe (the sausage pasta dish).
We also had sauteed mushrooms, raw veggies, and popovers.
A while back, I bought a Groupon to a favorite seafood restaurant, and I foolishly let it expire.
But after it expired, Groupon emailed me and was like, “Hey! Want a free extension on your Groupon? Click here and your new expiration date will be March 1st.”
And I was all, “Ohh, yes please. Click!”
So, Mr. FG and I made a reservation and went out for a mid-week treat.
I grilled burgers for my kids before we left.
Next Friday will be another birthday meal (Sonia’s up next!), so I’ll make pizza tonight.
Your turn! What have you been eating this week?
