This has been a long week for a variety of reasons, and not really my best week of cooking.
The combo of just getting back from a trip (with no menu plan in hand) and then getting sick right away has made things a little wonky on the food front!
I did feel improved by the time our cat rescue shift came around late this week, though. Whew.
And my youngest nieces and nephews brought over a very colorful Snoopy for me, which certainly brightened my week.
What I Spent
I spent $82 at the grocery store, which was fine.
I spent $153 at Costco.
But I did buy two containers of unscented laundry detergent, a big container of sulfate-free organic shampoo, and a bunch of other food items that will last for quite some time.
Week 1: $99.50
Week 2:(the week I was gone skiing) $160
Week 3: $235
What We Ate
Mr. FG and I went out for a date night and the girls ate mac and cheese.
This was a very random night…I wasn’t hungry because of being sick, Lisey had eaten elsewhere, Zoe ate a grilled cheese, and Mr. FG and Sonia got some sushi.
This is the day I made a Costco run, and since I was still fighting my cold, I pressed the easy button and got a rotisserie chicken and some sides from Costco.
Cheaper than takeout, and probably more protein too.
This was Zoe’s official birthday.
She turned 14, and she had a friend over for pizza, and then we went out to one of those frozen yogurt places where you add your own toppings.
I made chipotle chicken tacos, and we had some fruit with those.
I made chocolate chip waffles and bacon. And we had OJ and mandarin oranges.
Not a super healthy night, but at least I did not get takeout!
Zoe’s having a birthday sleepover tonight (since you can’t do that on a Tuesday night during the school year.)
We’re having pulled chicken sandwiches, jello, chips, and a homemade ice cream cake for dessert.
