What I Spent
I started out with a $25 Hungry Harvest.
Then I spent $73 at Costco, and $33 at a local grocery store.
So, I’m at $131 to start off December. Yay me!
What We Ate
Mr. FG and I went on a date to a gourmet pizza place, and we got McDonald’s for the girls before we left (their request!)
We ate a bunch of leftovers for lunch after church, and at night we had a snacky dinner (cheese, lunch meat, crackers, fruit, dip, etc.)
I made a shrimp taco salad (except I cooked some chicken to top Zoe’s, due to her shrimp allergy).
I made garlic bread with hot dog buns from the freezer, and I think we had some fruit too, but I can’t remember!
We had grilled cheese sandwiches and I tried a Cook’s Country recipe for tomato soup.
“Will this be as good as the kind in the can?” Zoe wanted to know.
The verdict: negative.
I thought it was pretty good, though, and I happily ate the leftovers for lunch the next day.
We had Asian chicken lettuce wraps plus potstickers on the side.
(I haven’t posted that recipe, but here’s a beef lettuce wrap recipe!)
I think I want to use up the rolls from the freezer, so I’m going to pick a main dish that needs rolls on the side.
I realize this is a slightly backwards way to plan a meal, but hey, a freezer challenge ends up like this sometimes!
