What I Spent
Remember how last week, I mentioned that I only had $75 left to spend in April?
This week I spent $79 at Aldi and $7 at another store.
That adds up to $86, so I came in VERY nearly on budget. Woohoo!
As I mentioned yesterday, I skipped my Hungry Harvest box this week because I was getting a backlog of veggies.
I love that Hungry Harvest lets you skip deliveries any time you want. Flexibility is my fave.
Week 1: $169
Week 2: $176
Week 3: $181
Week 4: $86
What We Ate
I got sick this week, which meant that meals were kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants.
But the important thing is: everyone got fed.
The second important thing is: we did not get takeout.
(a serious temptation when the chief cook is not at 100%)
ALL THE GOLD STARS FOR US.
Mr. FG and I went on the free date night I wrote about earlier this week.
This was Easter Sunday, and my in-laws came over for Easter dinner.
My mother-in-law brought the ham, and I made:
And hot fudge pudding cake plus ice cream for dessert.
Mr. FG and Lisey made buttermilk waffles for dinner since I was feeling under the weather.
I had some homemade French bread in the freezer, so I thawed that and we used it to make ham and cheese panini, using the leftover ham from Easter.
We also sauteed some asparagus.
We had frozen ravioli topped with jarred sauce. And broccoli topped with shredded cheese.
Fancy, I know.
I was starting to feel more like myself, and I made grilled hamburgers and sweet potato cubes for dinner.
And we had clementines on the side.
I think it’s going to be just Mr. FG and me here for dinner, so I will probably do something simple for the two of us.
