WIS, WWA | I regret the Sam’s Club trip!

What I Spent

I spent:

  • $32 at Lidl
  • $40 at Sam’s Club (where I got the @#%! yellow jacket sting)
  • $30 on a Hungry Harvest box
  • $8 at Safeway

Sooo, $110 for me.

What We Ate


I went to a cookout hosted by one of my nursing school friends; we cooked brats over the fire and made s’mores.

Waffles, berries, whipped cream: a classic meal for Zoe and me. 🙂

I made some ground beef tacos for us.



More tacos!

Zoe met up with a friend who was having a rough time, and so I cooked myself some shrimp with peppers and a sweet potato.

I went a little too hard with the chipotle chili powder on the shrimp, though, so I had to blow my nose a lot of times while I ate!


I had some soup and bread, and Zoe fended for herself after a late night shift.


There’s an outdoor symphony concert tonight, so I’m gonna get there early and eat a sandwich before the concert starts. 🙂

What did you have for dinner this week?

Sunday 9th of June 2024

It was a busy week, and I can't remember all of it, but: -We hosted an impromptu pool party on Tuesday. DH picked up a couple of Costco pizzas, I cut up 1.5 Costco watermelons (which are huge), we supplemented with raspberries, chips leftover from another teen event, & popsicles. -We had tacos x2 -DH grilled burgers on Wednesday, when my parents arrived for my son's graduation. I picked up Trader Joes potato & mac salad, to keep things easy. -We had gyros after graduation on Thursday. -I made chicken fajitas & guacamole on Friday, using up a bunch of stuff from the garden (green peppers, jalapenos, & cilantro). -We also had grilled chicken one night + foccacia.

@Blue Gate Farmgirl,

What are cottage potatoes?


Friday 7th of June 2024

I went to the grocery store Sunday morning to get some fruit and something to serve--a blueberry loaf (which was very good at half the price of a local baker I like). My husband's younger brother was stopping by--He never visits. And I saw the steak on "sale"--about a pound, which was just right for us. This grocery store puts its day-old bakery items at half price and one item is cheese bread. I picked up 2 loaves to put into the freezer. The steak, fruit, reduced priced bakery bread and a small coffee cake came to $40+. Now, let's see if I remember correctly Saturday: Macaroni pasta with vegetables Sunday: steak tips and baked potato and Monday: Pasta, sausage and sauce Tuesday: Grilled cheese for me; egg salad for DH and fruit Wednesday:: Burgers and fruit Thursday: chicken with peppers, onions and brown rice.

Sunday: We had dinner with family, lasagna with veggies and ice cream. It was national rocky road day, so of course that was on the menu! Monday: I went to my cookbook club at the library and ate lots of delicious food. I brought red curry chicken salad on lettuce wraps. Tuesday: Preschooler's choice, she went with spaghetti. Wednesday: Impromptu dinner with neighbors (summer is so great for those), hot dogs and brats. Thursday: Thai turkey burgers with quick pickled carrots. A new recipe, but definitely a winner! Friday: Pizza salad with marinated beans Saturday: It's the local Asian festival that night, so we'll eat there.

Have a great weekend everyone!

@Jaime, last month was Bon Appetit, it's at the library and they're trying to show people their online magazine program. Sometimes they do a specific book, sometimes an author, and sometimes just a general theme (last month was "pies" for example, both sweet and savory). How was Jubilee?
