WIS, WWA | three nights without me!

What I Spent

A sliced cheese and pepperoni pizza.

Let’s see. Except for the Hungry Harvest box, all of this week’s expenditures happened while I was gone in New Hampshire.

Yay for me not having to go grocery shopping when I got back!

  • $33 at Panda Express
  • $25 on a Hungry Harvest box
  • $16 at Weis
  • $45 at Giant
  • $7 at Harris Teeter
  • $20 at Lidl

So, $146 total to start June off.

What We Ate


Mr. FG made orange-glazed chicken plus rice and a fruit salad.


Mr. FG grilled some sausages and I do not know what else they had!


I think this is the night they got Panda Express takeout; my flight didn’t get in until 8:00 pm.


I randomly decided to make pizza because, in my post-trip fridge organization, I came across some tomato sauce that needed to be used.

A sliced, homemade cheese pizza.

Also, it looked like the coolest day all week, which seemed like a good time to heat the oven up to 500+ degrees. 

Here’s how I make my pizza, and here’s why your homemade pizza might be lackluster.


There were more sausages in the fridge, so I grilled them and served them in buns. We had potato chips and dip on the side, plus raw peppers and orange slices.


I opted for breakfast for dinner; bacon, plus waffles made with oat milk, topped with blueberries and whipped cream.

When Sonia first went dairy-free, I was making small batches of dairy-free pancakes or waffles for her, plus a regular batch for us. But that’s pretty annoying to do!

So now I just make dairy-free waffles or pancakes for all of us, since the oat milk ones taste pretty normal.

(Coconut milk versions do have a slightly odd taste!)


Since I made pizza earlier this week, we are definitely not doing pizza tonight.

My plan is to do some rummaging in my disorganized chest freezer to find something that needs to be used.

And I know I will make green beans with whatever I cook, because Hungry Harvest sent me a bag of ’em.

We spent $132 at the grocery store this week, largely due to purchasing some meat, which we usually eat somewhat sparingly.

For suppers, we had a lovely meatloaf that helped use up the frozen bread ends. This was eaten along with fresh fruit and veggies. For my work lunches, a bunch of frozen dinner leftovers were supplemented with some cheesy broccoli and creamy chicken rice. We had pancakes, sausage and applesauce for our Sunday night family supper. Homemade chocolate cupcakes for dessert all week as long as they lasted.

Dinner for me this week was all the same. Being single I usually try to make enough for a few meals and eat it for the next few days. Also leftovers don’t bother me. Once I cook something if I eat it a lot then I won’t make it again for a really long time. I made pasta then for the topping chicken with Alfredo and broccoli and slivered almonds. I baked the broccoli, and sliver almonds and already cooked chicken breast in the Alfredo sauce in a glass dish in the oven at 350 for 35-45 minutes and pulled it out to stir at 20min and then topped with shaved Parmesan cheese. And put on top some pasta what ever shape you want and it was fantastic!

We had two dinners of fruit & toast last week, due to some kitchen mishaps (teens in the kitchen). Otherwise, we had: -Crockpot pork carnitas -Chicken enchilada rice -Burgers -Steak

All meals served with salad, and most served with zucchini...because we have so many!

Oh welcome, welcome! I'm so glad to have you join in the comments.

How do you make your crispy pork stir-fry? Is the pork breaded?
