WHAT I SPENT
I spent at total of $119.81 on groceries during the past week. Primarily on two bulk purchases, one of which is attached to last month’s budget. Of the $100 toward dairy and produce that I am allocating for March, I have spent $19.55.
I spent $42.27 at Winn-Dixie for beef stew meat and smoked sausage. That purchase went to my February grocery budget, but the rest are all for March.
I spent $57.99 on Amazon for a 5lb container of chocolate whey protein. My husband is very specific about the brand and the flavor and Amazon has the best price. I also spent $6.40 at Publix for some strawberries and bulk cashews. And finally I spent $13.15 at Aldi on produce and dairy.
WHAT WE ATE
This week was somewhat atypical for us, with my parents being in town. We ate out a few times and combined with my school schedule, I didn’t end up doing a ton of cooking. We ate pretty well, none-the-less.
Saturday: NY Strip Steaks w/Mushroom Marsala Sauce, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Buttery Green Beans. And cookies for dessert.
Sunday: We had a late lunch out with my parents; for dinner we finished some leftover meatball subs.
Monday: Leftovers again, although truly I have no memory of what either of us ate. Except I did buy myself a bag of cheese puffs and a diet dr. pepper on campus. 😦
Tuesday: We ate out with my parents at a Mexican restaurant they really enjoyed the last time they were here.
Wednesday: Capellini Pomodoro, Carrot and Cucumber Sticks
Thursday: We had leftovers for dinner, but I spent the morning before class doing some food prep, which included Oatmeal Molasses Bread. Homemade bread makes leftover soup taste that much better, we find.
Friday: Tonight we’ll have Chicken w/Peppers, Olives & Capers and Sun-Dried Tomato Quinoa.
