I don’t ever quite remember having an election WEEK before, but here we are.
I mean, there was that whole mess with Gore/Bush in 2000, but somehow, that felt slightly more settled than this does.
Maybe by the next time I post a menu plan, things will be clearer.
What I Spent
I got a $25 Hungry Harvest delivery and I made a super quick $16 stop for coconut milk, bacon, bananas, and a few other things.
I also spent $19.50 on two takeout occasions.
So, I’m at $60.50 total for the week, for a nice low start to November!
What We Ate
This was Halloween, and we had a very here-and-there kind of night.
Zoe had a grilled cheese sandwich, Sonia had rice and scrambled eggs, and after we finished handing out candy, Mr. FG picked up a Little Caesar’s pizza and crazy bread ($9.50).
Mr. FG and Lisey were not here for dinner, and Sonia and Zoe had a random craving for McDonald’s.
So, I picked that up for them ($10), and I made a skillet meal for myself (sausage, peppers, eggs, and an avocado).
This is not a matter of self-flagellation. I just would really rather eat a skillet meal than McDonald’s most of the time!
I’m not a big french fry person, and I definitely am not into their chicken nuggets. So, a skillet meal wins.
Roasted red pepper soup (to use up the zillion red peppers Hungry Harvest gave me!), and toasted croissants.
Buttered and toasted in a skillet = the best way to eat croissants.
Breakfast for dinner; Swedish pancakes (aka lazy crepes) this time around.
And I used the spoon-in-the-drain hole trick as usual.
I made bacon and smoked gouda panini with chipotle mayo (a trifecta of smoky flavors!)
I made a quick pot of spaghetti before our rescue cat shift.
I’m probably going to make a taco salad with fried corn tortilla strips.
