What We Spent, What We Ate: July 7

This week has not been the best. I mean, grocery spending and eating-wise it’s been fine, even good. I just have had a headache for a couple of days and a few other things happening that have me feeling a bit grumpy. Medical bills are no fun. But. We’re here to talk about groceries!

What We Spent

I actually didn’t need a whole lot this week, since I had picked up so many things last week. My total for the week is $24.10, $4.48 of which was spent at Publix on hamburger buns and Morningstar farms corn dogs on the 3rd and which I did not photograph. The rest I picked up at Aldi ($18.48) and Target ($1/14), pictured below.

As you can see — not a whole lot. I needed tomato sauce as when I went to make the sloppy lentils earlier this week I used up my last can and I like to always have some on hand. I also grabbed some crumbled goat cheese because I thought that would taste good on salads and three containers of raspberries. The chow mein noodles were on clearance at Target and I thought, why not — I like them on salads.

My total remaining budget for July is $193.40.

What We Ate

I pretty much stuck to the meal plan. I’ll be making the cilantro lime soup tonight.

  1. I am going to make the lentil sloppy joes this week. It will be interesting to see what kind of reaction they get.

    1. My husband really likes them, but he is very amenable to all types of beans/legumes. My sister is horrified by the very idea of this recipe. 😛

  2. You spent $24.10 for a week’s groceries? Do you think you will be going again before the next shopping day? Your meals look absolutely scrumptious.

    1. Thanks Susan — they were tasty. I didn’t need much this week because of stocking up so thoroughly both last week and the previous week in June. My next shopping trip will probably be larger!

  3. I’m sorry about the medical bills and your headache. I hope you are feeling better now! I love lentils, I don’t cook them often enough.

    1. My headache went away today, especially after a nap. 🙂 I love lentils, too, and want to remember to use them a bit more often — so healthy and good!

  4. Glad your headache went away! Maybe the medical bills brought it on? You did well with your shopping trip and spending and those meals all look delicious!

    1. Thanks Bless! I think the headache was hormone related, but stress never helps them out, that’s for sure!
