What I Spent
I was hoping to stay out of the stores entirely this week, but I cracked and made a quick stop in search of toilet paper (I came up dry on my last big grocery haul).
Happily, I found some, so now we have a backup pack. Excellent.
Running low on toilet paper makes me nervous.
Anyway, my total for this week is $35.
What We Ate
Our neighbor had gone fishing and came home with extra rockfish. Sweet!
I grilled that, and we had broccoli plus a loaf of garlic pull-apart bread with our fish.
For Sonia’s sake, I used unsweetened coconut milk in the bread dough, and it worked out great.
Mr. FG and I did a takeout date night by getting subs and eating them out by our fire pit.
And I made apple pfannekuchen for the girls, using coconut milk for Sonia’s.
God bless the fact that Sonia can have coconut milk. And butter. Whew.
I grilled burgers (using this recipe) and cut up a watermelon.
I realized it was Cinco de Mayo, and I didn’t really have fixings for tacos (it’s been too long since I did a grocery haul! No cilantro, no avocados, no mangoes…)
So, I made bacon and cheese quesadillas, and we ate those with chips/queso and watermelon, with a Cinco de Mayo playlist going on Spotify.
Sonia really hates the non-dairy cheese we’ve bought, and cheese of some sort really is essential for a quesadilla.
So, I made her a BLT instead of a quesadilla.
We had hibachi chicken and shrimp on rice with yumyum sauce.
And since that dish has veggies, protein, and starch all in one, that’s all I needed to make.
I tried a recipe from Dinner Illustrated for pork Milanese. Sonia’s not a big fan of meat, but she does like it pounded thin and breaded with panko, so I was not surprised that she asked me to try this one.
When I make pull apart garlic bread, I always have an extra loaf’s worth of dough, so I bake a plain loaf. I’d frozen that on Saturday, and I pulled it out to have with dinner last night.
And we had a green salad.
I shredded and froze the mozzarella I bought last trip, so I have plenty to make pizza tonight.
And heaven knows I have enough flour. Fifty pounds of flour makes a LOT of pizzas.
What did you have for dinner this week?
