What I Spent
We spent $150.52 at the grocery store this week, which means I would have been right on budget.
Except there was a Costco trip that totaled $31 (two chickens plus floss and toothpaste.)
On a related note, here are the top ten things I buy at Costco.
Anyway, I’m at $182 for the week.

Week 2: $182
What We Ate
I was still at FinCon, so I had gyros with a few people from my mastermind group, at a Greek restaurant in DC.
I’m not sure what Mr. FG and the girls ate this night!
I came home from FinCon on Sunday, and Mr. FG and Sonia cooked dinner. Excellent.
They made cheese souffles and a strawberry green salad, both from Dinner Illustrated.
Sonia REALLY wanted mashed potatoes, and I had a bag of Yukon Golds that needed to be used.
So, I made a big batch of those and I asked Mr. FG to pick up some rotisserie chickens at Costco on his way home.
I cut up some fresh produce to eat and dinner was done. Not fancy, but very easy.
I made the ham and Swiss rollups that I tried recently, specifically so I could take pictures and share the recipe.
Coming next week!
I made croissant chicken sandwiches to use up the rotisserie chicken from earlier in the week.
We had steamed broccoli with our sandwiches, topped with cheese of course.
Mr. FG and I weren’t home at dinnertime, and Sonia and Zoe had mini pigs in a blanket, which they’d been requesting anyway.
And orange slices. So they did have something remotely healthy.
I’ve got book club tomorrow night, so we are gonna do our weekly date night tonight instead.
We haven’t decided where we are going, and I also have not decided what Sonia and Zoe are going to eat.
The food situation is up in the air at the FG house right now.
