Project: Food Budget Week 15

Food Budget Piggybank

We shopped from the food budget little this week, with only a quick Costco run to the (food) tune of $37.57. Most of our spending went to entertainment food (Kate’s bday party on Sunday) and diapers.

I think Dan’s eating out has crept up again. So, still something to work on. Our spending on eating out went over budget by $7.84 — I guess that’s not too awful.

I really wanted to draw up a long, staple-centric shopping list for this week, but we’ve neither the budget nor the time for that. So:

Costco budget: $50. We need bread and chocolate milk for lunches, and I’m sure we’ll get a couple more odds and ends there.

I will be going through what I have to hand in my freezer, pantry, and crisper, then, and so our menu is going to look like this for the week (Thursday to Wednesday):

Black Beans and Rice
Vegetarian Chili and Mashed Potatoes
Lentil Stew
Roasted Beets
Slow-Cooker Applesauce
Roasted Cabbage
Baked Oatmeal (I mean it! This is the weekend I actually make this recipe!)
