What I Spent

BBQ chicken pizza

I didn’t do a full grocery shop this week…we just had a few small stops, which added up to $43.

However, we did spend $15 at Little Caesar’s, and $28 at Chick-Fil-A.

So, all of that comes to $85.

What We Ate


Mr. FG and I had our usual date night, so no cooking for me.


We got pizza from Little Caesar’s. Because that is what happens around here sometimes!


I didn’t get home until nearly dinnertime (I was visiting my cousin, who just had a baby!) and I failed to prep anything before I left.

So, when Mr. FG got home, we decided it would be good night for Chick-Fil-A.


I made a super quick orange/apricot glazed chicken recipe from ATK’s Quick Family Cookbook.

We had egg bread, watermelon, and raw veggies with the chicken.

I made BLTs because we had a few tomatoes that needed to be used up.

(And also because I love BLTs.)

And we had watermelon on the side because apparently I am pretending it’s still summertime.


Zoe and her cousin made BBQ chicken pizzas for us!

I’m planning to make polenta and sausage with smoky tomato sauce (a recipe from the ATK Quick Family Cookbook.)

I’ve got the polenta in the fridge already, which feels lovely.

ATK Quick Family Cookbook

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we use our orange ATK quick family cookbook a lot. It’s out of print, sadly, but there are always used copies on Amazon, so go check there.
