What I Spent
Let’s see. I got a $25 Hungry Harvest box.
That’s a big bag of kale up there at the top peeking into the photo. Needless to say, we’ve been having kale smoothies all week!
I had a $10/$50 purchase coupon for a local grocery store, so I went there and spent $42.59 (my total before the coupon was $52, so I was pretty pleased with how close I got to hitting the $50 minimum.)
And I made a Costco trip, where I spent $104 (mainly on frozen fruit, butter, and nuts).
So, my total for this week is $172.13. That’s higher than my $150 average, but that’s what usually happens on Costco weeks!
What We Ate
Some friends were visiting from Florida, and we grilled hamburgers (here’s how I make mine) and brats. Plus we had chips and watermelon.
And ice cream floats for dessert.
This is the night I tried the bland pork and rice noodle bowls.
We ate fresh cantaloupe with those, and I’m pleased to say that at least the cantaloupe was flavorful!
It was a mish-mash of a night. Joshua and Lisey were gone at work and I had music rehearsal. The girls made themselves some tortellini with Alfredo sauce, and Mr. FG picked up a sandwich for himself on the way home from work.
Normally we do pizza on Friday nights, but I have some potatoes that need to be used up, so I’m thinking of veering off course a bit and making something that can have roasted potatoes as a side dish.
How about you?
What’s been on the dinner table at your house? And how are things with your grocery budget?
