What I Spent
I know sometimes at the start of a new year, people make grocery-bill-reduction goals, but honestly, I’m not even gonna stress over that. Maybe after the semester is over, I can do a bang-up job with the grocery bill over the summer.
But until then, I’m just gonna keep on focusing on keeping us fed in a reasonably health way, and that will be good enough!
- $47 at Aldi
- $27 at Panera
- $23 on Domino’s for Zoe’s New Year’s party
So, $97 for the two of us this week.
What We Ate
Zoe and I met up at Panera after her work shift, got some dinner together, and then went home and watched a movie together. 🙂
Zoe had a friend get-together for New Year’s Eve, and they all ate pizza.
I’m trying to remember what I ate! I think I did one of my frequent egg + veggie skillet meals.
I’d gotten a loaf of cinnamon bread out of the freezer on New Year’s Eve day, so I used some of that on Monday to make French toast, which we ate with whipped cream and berries.
I made some penne with an Alfredo sauce, and I pan-sauteed some chicken thighs to slice on top of the pasta.
I also picked up a salad kit at Aldi, because I thought, “Hmm, this seems like a good thing for a two-person household.” The salad was tasty, but as expected, a little short on the toppings.
Like….it had bacon, but only a very TINY bit of bacon.
I think I might be better off buying a bag of salad greens and then adding my own toppings.
On the other hand, a salad kit did ensure that we actually ate a salad, so I don’t know. The jury is out on whether or not I will continue to buy them!
A repeat of Tuesday, complete with the other half of the salad.
Zoe picked up some fast food for herself after work, and I ate some random stuff from the fridge (leftover pasta and some butternut squash soup, plus a grilled cheese sandwich).
I don’t know! But I can tell you that the pasta is ALL gone now, so dinner will not include leftover pasta again. Ha.
