WIS, WWA | an uninspired week

You know how some weeks are full of phone-it-in nights? This was one of those!

Luckily, my girls don’t really care. Whew.

What I Spent

This week I spent:

  • $10 at Firehouse
  • $65 at Aldi
  • $25 at Mod Pizza
  • $12 at Safeway

So, $112 for me.

What We Ate


I have been sitting here for a while trying to remember and I am STUCK. My receipts are not helping to jog my memory either!


Zoe and I had a little outing together; she chose Mod Pizza. 🙂


I had a partial jar of tomato sauce that needed to be used, so I boiled some frozen ravioli and topped it with the sauce and some freshly grated Parmesan. Fruit salad on the side.


I had a few radishes that needed to be used, so I made chicken tacos with a radish/cilantro/lime topping.

We had chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, plus some fruit.


Lisey was out, so it was just Zoe and me. I had a $10 discount at Mezeh, so I got myself a bowl for $1.50 (yay!) and I got Zoe a sub at Firehouse, since she’s not as into Mezeh as I am.


I haven’t decided. Will I phone it in? POSSIBLY.

What did you have for dinner this week?

If you phoned it in, this is a safe place to share. 😉

Last week was hit or miss. Had a big pot of minestrone soup and rolls and salad twice. Got RAMEN take out.It used to be $10.50 a bowl now it is $15.50.Last time we will be ordering ramen. Just too much. Made baked cod with pank crumbs, roasted with carrots and potatoes. Another night was clean out the fridge night and I had a beet salad, a regular salad and some leftover spaghetti. This week I want to make some better meals— I got a Costco chicken for tonight and we will go from there….

I can't remember everything, but some of our meals were: - Peanut sauce over rice - Pizza and chips. We keep the pizza prices down by adding the mozzarella moderatly and using cheaper toppings (like onions instead of imported pepperoni). - Leftovers
