What I Spent
Sonia and Zoe, Sonia in particular, had a hankering to stay with my parents, so she suggested that Mr. FG and I go somewhere.
We were happy to oblige, so we booked an Airbnb in the lovely little town of Jim Thorpe, PA for a few days.
Luckily, there was an Aldi nearby (woohoo!) and our Airbnb had a full kitchen. So, we were able to mainly avoid eating out.
We spent $56 at Aldi, and that provided us with our breakfasts, lunches, and two dinners.
Definitely cheaper than eating out for all of those meals.
When we got home, I spent another $90 on groceries, so I’m at $146 for the week.
What We Ate
We baked a frozen margherita pizza from Aldi and ate some cherries with it.
We cooked some shrimp lo mein and potstickers.
For our last night away, we got sandwiches at a little pub in Jim Thorpe.
We came back from our trip and picked up Sonia and Zoe around dinnertime, so my mom kindly fed us all dinner.
I made a chicken tortellini green salad with homemade croutons, and I got a loaf of homemade French bread out from the freezer as well.
I made pork cutlet cuban sandwiches, to use up a half package of pork from the freezer.
We also had broccoli and cheese.
I think I’m going to make a Greek salad from Dinner Illustrated.
