What I Spent
I spent $25 on my Hungry Harvest and $51 at the grocery store. It was a light shopping week!
What We Ate
Mr. FG and I had our date night (tacos!) and the girls fended for themselves (which means things like grilled cheese or ramen, usually.)
This was a here and there night…Mr. FG was out with Joshua, Lisey was at work, Zoe was out with her cousins, and just Sonia and I were at home at dinnertime.
So I made a pot of Parmesan polenta, because Sonia and I both love polenta but no one else is a huge fan.
We had the shrimp pasta dish I tried a few weeks ago, although Zoe had hers with chicken.
I grabbed some naan out of the freezer and we made naan pizzas…some regular pepperoni, and some BBQ chicken.
I tried a new recipe from a Cook’s Country magazine for a steak salad (I had a pound of skirt steak in the freezer that needed to be used).
This recipe called for baking torn pitas into something like croutons, and those were really tasty, if just a bit too salty for my taste.
I’d planned to make this shrimp recipe, but I ended up needing an easier meal. So I pulled some dried beef out of the freezer and we had chipped beef on toast, with sauteed asparagus on the side (thanks, Hungry Harvest!)
Mr. FG and I will probably do our date night tonight (maybe takeout and a movie?), since Sonia’s birthday is tomorrow.
