I'm a little late updating, obviously! I feel like I have been SO busy since the school year started. Dance, homework, Bible study and having my husband gone an extra day on top of what I am used to is wearing me out! We've also been dealing with a lot of allergy related illness the last few weeks. I'm still trying to keep up with our grocery project updates, but it is sure getting hard!
When I got home from the store, I thought I did really good with our $50, but even as I am writing, I'm realizing our fridge is looking empty. I just didn't get much to put in it! Hopefully we'll manage because I have about $12 for the rest of the week left to cover anything that might come up between now and then.
Our meal plan for the week looks a little like this,
Saturday - pumpkin smoothies / burritos at Taco Bell / chicken and potato bake
Sunday - went to church without breakfast / vanilla Dutch Baby with country store fried apples /ham and cheese sandwiches
Monday - bagels with pumpkin cream cheese / brown bag lunches / crockpot chicken and wild rice soup (We didn't have this last week.)
Tuesday - cereal / brown bag lunches / tuna noodle salad
Wednesday -cereal / brown bag lunches / broccoli and cheese baked potatoes
Thursday - pumpkin smoothies / brown bag lunches / grilled cheese and tomato soup
Friday - apples with peanut butter / brown bag lunches / crockpot black beans and cheese
I have a few recipes I need to find time to add. Hopefully I'll find some time to share how I've been making pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin smoothies and the new chicken and potato bake that I made last night some time this week!
In the early days of our $50 grocery project, I used to panic a little bit when it felt like we were low on groceries. These days, I've learned that we usually fly through the week, and we're on to a new start pretty quickly. Hopefully that we'll be the case this week!
