And I thought I might make it this week!
But I needed to go to Costco (just for frozen fruit) and we all know how that ends up.
Unpictured produce box ($35)
A run to a local store ($22)
And not pictured are four big bags of frozen fruit from Costco ($39).
That puts me at $154 for the week which isn’t insane, especially given that I went to Costco. But I was secretly kind of hoping to continue my below-budget pattern of the last few weeks.
Maybe next week I can do it, especially if I keep rummaging in my freezer for meal inspiration.
Week 1: $76
Week 2: $120
Week 3: $154
What We Ate
I cleaned and organized my kitchen freezer and found a partial package of mahi-mahi and a partial package of tilapia. So, I thawed and sauteed those, made a pan of muffin-tin popovers, and cut up some raw fruit and veggies.
It was Valentine’s Day, but Mr. FG and I figured that with our Florida trip, we’d already had a lot of date nights.
Plus, I surprised him by driving over to meet him for lunch that day.
So, we took the girls out for subs instead (Joshua was at a meeting or we’d have taken him too, obv!) and I think they were pretty happy with that.
This was our Arroz con Pollo night.
I sauteed some green beans from my produce box to go on the side.
Well, tomorrow is Zoe’s birthday, but she’s having a friend over for a birthday sleepover tonight. So, she’s having her birthday meal tonight.
She’s picked homemade chicken nuggets, jello, SunChips, a fruit salad, and a homemade ice cream cake for dessert.
(Birthday dinners are not generally a super nutritious meal at our house!)
