(WIS, WWA = What I Spent, What We Ate)
It’s not dark at dinnertime anymore! Which means I am much more inspired to pick up my camera before we eat.
And that means that there are actually some current dinner photos in this post.
What I Spent
I got a $25 Hungry Harvest box, and then we spent $108 on other groceries. That means March has been a pretty quiet month on the grocery spending front.
Normally I’d expect to spend $600 for four weeks, but my total for March is $527.
Annnnd that means I’m expecting to have some higher weeks in April!
March Grocery Spending
Week 1: $101
Week 2: $183
Week 3: $110
Week 4: $133
Year-to-Date Monthly Spending
What We Ate
Mr. FG and I did a takeout date night and tried a new-to-us local spot and the girls fended for themselves.
This is our night we usually try to support a local restaurant by getting takeout; this week, we got poke bowls from a local shop.
I’ve never had a poke bowl before, but I got a spicy one that was really good.
Roasted chicken plus roasted baby potatoes plus (oddly) grapes. Which are an odd accompaniment to chicken, but it’s what I had in the fridge!
I made flatbread pizzas, using flatbreads leftover from the food pantry. They gave us some huge pepperoni as well, so I used that on one of the pizzas.
I topped the other one with BBQ sauce and leftover chicken from Monday.
I made burrito bowls, at Zoe’s request (chicken, rice, lettuce, cheese, etc).
These are pretty much a one-dish meal, but we had some applesauce on the side as well.
I made a green salad with chicken and skirt steak, with French bread on the side.

Today is Lisey’s birthday! She has requested wings and fries from her favorite local spot, plus a chocolate cheesecake (made by me).
Sonia obviously can’t eat cheesecake, so I will probably make a pan of Rice Krispie treats in addition to the cheesecake.
