What I Spent
I got a Hungry Harvest box ($25), and then I spent $60.38 on random stops here and there to fill things in.
So, I only spent $85.38. A small upside, but totally not worth being sick! Give me my health any day.

What We Ate
We had a week of pretty easy and not-super-well-rounded meals (read: a shocking lack of veggies), since sickness was still slowly working its way through my house.
I was back in the kitchen, but not exactly full force!
We had chipped beef on toast and sliced oranges.
Poor Zoe got sick last Friday, which meant we had to postpone her birthday party. So sad!
We still need to reschedule her friends coming for a sleepover, but we did a makeup meal for her on Tuesday, with the pulled chicken sandwiches, jello, chips, and such.
And Sonia and I made a homemade ice cream cake for her too.
I grilled some sausages, cut up some oranges and cucumbers, and called it good.
It was a breakfast for dinner night: French toast and bacon.
Mr. FG and I plan to go out for tacos. Because every night is a good night for tacos! And I’m actually recovered enough to be hungry now, which is nice. Having no appetite is surprisingly un-fun.
