The What I Spent portion of this post is going to be kind of boring because I didn’t really go grocery shopping. I picked up $18 worth of items at Aldi at the beginning of the week, and that was it.
Which handily makes up for my expensive shopping last week.
Week 1: $242
Week 2: $18
The only downside of this lite-on-shopping week is that we ended up eating a kind of vegetable-light set of dinners.
Luckily, I still made green smoothies every morning, though, so we were not completely bereft of greens this week.
We started our week out with fish tacos. And guacamole, of course.
We also ate applesauce from the freezer.
I had a number of bread odds and ends in the freezer, so we had a French toast night.
I made strawberry syrup to go with the french toast, and also cooked up some fresh pork sausages.
I tried a Cook’s Illustrated recipe for Parmesan Risotto with roasted chicken, and my girls weren’t big fans of the risotto. I think it might be because they aren’t much on wine-flavored things.
Ah well. You win some and you lose some.
We had band rehearsal, so the kids and I ate at home beforehand. The girls and I ate apple pfannekuchen, and Joshua made a sub.
We met Mr. FG at rehearsal, and I brought him some sushi for day 11 of The 14 Days of Valentines.
It is a pizza night, of course. I will probably make basic pizza. Unless my day gets crazy, in which case I may break down and get carryout pizza.
How’s the grocery spending going at your house? And what have you been eating?
P.S. Joshua and I are late this week, but we finally posted our takes on the portrait assignment.
(I saw the assignment and was all, “Woo!” and Joshua was all, “Ohhh dear.” Basically the opposite of how we react to landscape assignments. )
