What I Spent
This week I spent:
- $105 at the grocery store
- $25 on my Hungry Harvest
- $68 on takeout (!) See the rest of the post.
That puts me at $198 on food spending for the week to start November off.
If there’s a little takeout here or there, I don’t bother adding it to my grocery budget.
But three meals this week? That seemed like it should come from my grocery budget!
What We Ate
Mr. FG and I had a date night at Panda Express, which has two of the features of our usual date night restaurants:
Every now and then we get dressed up to go somewhere fancy:
but as a rule, we are happy being casual.
Our bill was $21.25, which comes out of our $20/week date night budget.
We carved pumpkins on Sunday afternoon, and in the evening after Joshua and his girlfriend left, Mr. FG and a few of the girls were hungry (some of us were full from snacking during carving!)
So he picked up some sushi for $38.
Which reminds me why we don’t eat sushi all the time. The amount of food you get for the price is definitely lower than other forms of takeout!
I made cuban sandwiches and we had raw fruits and veggies with those.
I made shrimp and grits, and I was going to cook green beans with those….but my green beans had gone bad.
So we had raw fruits and veggies on the side again.
Only Mr. FG, Sonia and I were home at dinnertime, and both Sonia and Mr. FG were sick with a cold.
Sonia in particular was really wanting Chinese food, so we got a takeout order for $14.75.
Which always makes dinner kind of tricky, because the parade in our neighborhood starts at 5:30, and we are always busy getting ready before then, which does not leave time to eat.
By the time we got back to our house at 8:00 or so, we were all pretty hungry. So Mr. FG picked up Little Caesar’s for $14.80.
I’ll do a post with photos of our costumes (check back tomorrow!), but you can see Mr. FG and me on my Instagram feed.)
I really think that I should actually cook some dinner tonight. Ha.
It got suddenly cold overnight, so maybe I’ll do some soup and fresh bread.
