Food now, a giveaway coming at noon!
What I Spent
I spent $70.78 at the grocery store.
And then I got my $25 Hungry Harvest.
I added on $3.99 of organic strawberries to my harvest as well.
So my total for the week is $99.97. Yay!
(My budget is $150/week.)
What We Ate
I tried a new recipe for chicken lo mein bowls, and the night we ate them, I wasn’t very impressed, mostly because it didn’t seem like the sauce flavored the noodles enough.
But the dish improved greatly upon sitting, and the leftovers made for a great lunch.
I tried two new recipes for dinner…bacon-wrapped chicken breasts, and the mashed potato cakes that I shared with you yesterday.
The bacon-wrapped chicken was pretty good, but the bacon didn’t get as crispy as I’d hoped. I realized later that I mixed up the order of two steps, and that’s probably why it went wrong. Whoops. I’ll do it again sometime, except the right way.
I had some broccoli from Hungry Harvest hanging around in my fridge, so I made this broccoli cheddar noodle soup (and I used some turkey broth from my freezer, so bonus points for me!)
I also made a pan of cornbread to use up some buttermilk.
Long day, so I made sloppy joes, cut up some mangoes and grapes, and called it good.
I have an event to go to, so I think I’m going to order some pizza for the family.
