As I told you yesterday, I had an unusual week, so my grocery shopping and cooking routines were a little out of whack. But mostly for good reasons!
What I Spent
Let’s see…before I left for Florida, I spent $61.67 on unpictured groceries.
And then on Wednesday night, Mr. FG and I went out in his car to get a few groceries since I didn’t have my van back yet. We went to Aldi and we spent $57.60.
So, I’m at $119.27 for the week.
Week 1: $76
Week 2: $120
What We Ate
I was in Naples with Mr. FG and we ate at a taco place.
Mr. FG and I flew back on Tuesday night, so we didn’t have much for dinner…just some snacks. But that was fine because for lunch, we had some pretty large burgers in Naples. So, it all worked out.
I’d intended to make Arroz con Pollo, but with my van fiasco, I couldn’t go buy any ingredients!
So, I poked around in the freezer/fridge/pantry and decided to make shrimp quesadillas with chips and salsa, plus homemade applesauce from the freezer.
Was it an amazingly nutritious meal? Nope! But hungry people were fed, and it was at least as healthy as takeout would have been (plus a lot cheaper.)
You know that 14 Days of Valentines thing I do for Mr. FG?
Well, yesterday I called to see if our favorite waiter was working at our favorite local restaurant, and he was. So, for day 9, we went and had dinner there (using a gift card, happily!)
I’m planning to make some pizzas for dinner.
How about you?
What did you eat this week? And did you cook more than I did?
