What I Spent
Last Friday I took Zoe out for a shopping trip ($67.83) so she could pick out some birthday food that we don’t normally buy (ice cream, orange juice, sun chips, juice boxes, and pop tarts!).
And I made another smallish trip on Monday ($42.39), pictured here:
When you are out of laundry detergent AND toilet paper, things are getting dire.
My shopping adds up to $110.22.
Week 1: $76
Week 2: $120
Week 3: $154
Week 4: $110
That puts me at $460 for the month, which is $115 per week. Sweet!
What We Ate
I was flipping thru my ATK Quick Cookbook with the girls, and when I came to the BLT salad page, they said, “Ooh, can we have that tonight?”
So, that’s what we did.
I made a pan of garlic breadsticks as well.
I made my new recipe (the sausage pasta dish).
We also had sauteed mushrooms, raw veggies, and popovers.
A while back, I bought a Groupon to a favorite seafood restaurant, and I foolishly let it expire.
But after it expired, Groupon emailed me and was like, “Hey! Want a free extension on your Groupon? Click here and your new expiration date will be March 1st.”
And I was all, “Ohh, yes please. Click!”
So, Mr. FG and I made a reservation and went out for a mid-week treat.
I grilled burgers for my kids before we left.
Next Friday will be another birthday meal (Sonia’s up next!), so I’ll make pizza tonight.
