What I Spent
I started out with my $25 Hungry Harvest box.
I spent $55.48 at the store where Lisey works.
I spent $98.59 at Aldi.
And I made a $9.30 stop for panko, soy sauce, ginger, a red pepper, and lettuce.
So, I spent $188.
Which, ahahaha, is not what I planned to do this week, since I spent more than my allotted $150/week last week too.
I’m planning to do a Use Up Things From The Freezer challenge this coming week, which means my grocery spending should be super low. So, I’m thinkin’ that’ll probably get me back on budget.
Week 1: $208
Week 2: $188
What We Ate
This is the night I made the pork tenderloins and roasted potatoes.
And I also made these sauteed green beans.
I made Asian Lettuce Wraps, teriyaki meatballs, and some chicken dumpings (dumplings were frozen, from Costco)
And I cut up some pears.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make, which is generally a recipe for disaster.
(Or, you know, takeout.)
But I found some shrimp in the freezer, and I decided to make Shrimp Viennese.
Joshua made a panini, the girls made mac n cheese, and Mr. FG and I went and picked up subs after rehearsal.
(I had points for a free one, so our meal only cost $5. Whee!)
I have book club Saturday night, so maybe we’ll do our date night tonight, and pizza Saturday night.
