What I Spent
So, late last week, I made this trip, which I didn’t properly photograph because I was bringing a meal to someone and I needed to get busy cooking. I spent $106.81.
Then I made a trip this week that cost $94.04.
And I got my brand new produce box, which costs $15 instead of $35, so, yay!
However, I’m at $215.85 this week.
But, that’s ok! I brought two meals to two other families this week, so I was feeding more than just the six of us.
I’m going to have to be seriously under budget this week if I want to average March out properly, though.
Soo, I think I’m going to do some digging in my freezer as I make next week’s menu plan!
Week 1: $194
Week 2: $147
Week 3: $216
What We Ate
I made grilled Caribbean chicken with couscous (the couscous had grilled onion, red pepper, and pineapple in it), plus braised mashed sweet potatoes, buttered corn from my new produce box, and a green salad.
This was a recipe from my 52 New Recipes series, and it’s the second time I’ve made it.
This go round, I marinated the chicken right away in the morning, and I feel like it tasted a lot better that way.
More marinating = more better.
We had shrimp and ravioli in pink sauce, plus homemade French bread and a fruit salad.
This is the night I made the Indian-spiced grilled chicken.
We also had homemade naan, plus a green salad.
Last Friday, I didn’t make pizza since I had a girls’ night out with my friends. So this week, I’ll probably make some pizza at home.
What have you been eating this week? And are you staying on budget better than I am??
