What I Spent
I’m counting it as a July week, since it was mostly July.
I started out the week with a $64 Aldi trip. And the only other stop I made was a $22 one at another grocery store.
So, $86 it is for this week. Yay!
Week 5: $86
Year to Date Grocery Spending
I’m averaging $151/week thus far.
What We Ate
This is usually a date night for Mr. FG and me, but we ended up taking Sonia and her cousin along with us this time (after our apron-making session)
We had Panera with the girls.
Mr. FG and I made chicken and biscuits, which we ate with some fresh fruit.
And we made rice krispy treats for dessert, using Cook’s Country’s suggestion to add vanilla.
The vanilla DOES elevate the recipe quite a bit (2 teaspoons for 10 cups of cereal), so try it next time!
I made a Cook’s Country recipe for crispy shrimp tacos, and we had a strawberry-peach fruit salad with our tacos.
Mr. FG was out at dinnertime, and the girls and I ate Swedish pancakes, aka lazy crepes.
Our eating schedule was all mixed up on Wednesday, so I didn’t even make dinner aside from heating up some leftovers for myself.
I tried a Cook’s Illustrated recipe for butter chicken, which was very tasty. I fail to see the difference between this and chicken tikka masala, but that’s fine, because I like tikka masala!
I’m not entirely sure what our plans are for tonight; we might do our date night tonight instead of tomorrow night.
In which case Sonia and Zoe will eat leftover butter chicken.
