What I Spent
I dropped $17.82 at the organic market, and $122.68 at Aldi (those are the groceries pictured here).
And that adds up to $140.50. I figured I wasn’t going to have a second week of high spending in a row!
Week 1: $252
Week 2: $140
What We Ate
Chicken Pomodoro from the ATK Quick Family cookbook , which I served over rice this time (the photo below is from another time we had this main dish.)
We had a blueberry/peach salad with our chicken and also raw cucumber slices.
I made grilled hamburgers and we had raw veggies and fruit with those.
Pancake night! Plus bacon. And we topped the pancakes with whipped cream and fresh peaches.
You can’t do that for very long each year (peach season feels so short!), so I feel that seizing the moment is important.
I really, really did not feel like cooking dinner. This makes me feel like a spoiled brat sometimes because basically I’m saying, “Ohhh, woe is me! I don’t want to go into my air-conditioned kitchen with modern appliances and put together ingredients that I didn’t grow, harvest, or preserve. Waahhhhh!!”
It’s a little ridiculous.
Anyway, I put my big girl pants on and made quesadillas plus fresh salsa and guacamole.
Sleepovers and work are going to be occupying my kiddos, so I think Mr. FG and I will definitely get some takeout, just the two of us.
How about you? What were you eating this week?
