We’re one month closer to spring, friends! And the days are getting longer, minute by minute.
Time for a fresh grocery budget too.
What I Spent
Last Friday, we had tacos instead of pizza, and I needed sour cream, cheddar cheese, and tortillas. I also picked up some bananas, because we always need bananas. I spent $8.38 on that stop.
On Saturday, I got my Hungry Harvest box ($25).
On Monday, I finally went to Aldi, after more than a week with no Aldi in my life. I spent $99 there.
And then lastly, I made a $22 stop.
That puts me at $154 for the week, which is just fine (my average is $150/week).
What We Ate
My dear friend is moving on Saturday, and we’re trying to squeeze in as much time as possible…so, I made some dinner and brought it over to her house with my three girls.
(Mr. FG was in Texas for work and Joshua was at work making coffee.)
I made a grilled chicken salad by making this chipotle chicken and then adding greens, avocado, tomatoes, and cucumber.
And I brought homemade French bread as well.
Mr. FG was still in Texas, and since he’s not a fan of eggs, I was all, “Hmm, what eggy thing could we have for dinner??”
So, I opted to make lazy crepes (known as Swedish pancakes in my childhood) and bacon.
I found some red potatoes on the shelf, so I decided to make a pot of clam chowder.
I used leftover French bread from Monday to make some garlic bread, and I steamed some broccoli and cauliflower as well.
I was running low on motivation, so I grabbed some ham from the freezer, made a pan of muffin tin popovers, and raided the fridge for odds and ends to make a green salad.
I’m thinking about using naan to make some quick pizzas. I’ve never tried that before, but it sounds tasty. And easy. Very easy!
