I did my end-of-month numbers round up last week, because I forgot that May actually had one more week. Whoops.
I’m just gonna add them into today’s post, with updated numbers.
What I Spent
I skipped my Hungry Harvest box this week because I had too much produce to use. I love that they are flexible about delivery skipping.
I spent $144 at the grocery store, plus $41 at Costco (they had a sale on laundry detergent, toothpaste, and dishwasher soap).
So, it’s a good thing I skipped Hungry Harvest because even so, I’m at $185.
Week 1: $119
Week 2: $191
Week 3: $181
Week 4: $130
Week 5: $185

What We Ate
Mr. FG and I went to Potbelly for sandwiches, and I downloaded their app to get a free cookie.
The girls had mac n cheese at home with a friend.
We visited Mr. FG’s parents, where we had burgers and bratwurst, and I brought homemade buns. Of course.
It was Memorial Day here in the U.S., but since we’d had burgers the day before, I opted to make BLT sandwiches.
And I tried Lisey’s method, which is sort of like a cross between a grilled cheese sandwich and a BLT. You set up your BLT like usual, except with bread instead of toast, and then you grill it on both sides as you would a grilled cheese sandwich.
Verdict: very good.
Lisey is wise.
We had chicken tacos topped with radishes, cilantro, and queso fresca (from Dinner Illustrated).
We had potato salad, grilled pork tenderloin, and some kind of fresh produce that has fallen out of my brain at the moment.
I made shrimp and grits with a fruit salad on the side.
I had put grilled pizza on the menu, but I forgot that the dough has to sit in the fridge for 24 hours. Ha.
So, I’m gonna figure out something else for dinner tonight.
