Here’s the truth. I don’t know how I used to do $85-$100 a week for poorganic food. I’m guessing that all my kids have increased their eating by a TON because we are spending this money pretty quick. I’ve been alternating between vegetarian and meatless dishes and including lots of eggs and bean dishes, but we are STILL burning through our $500.
I’ve included photos from shopping trips to Harris Teeter and Trader Joes, both of which were around $40 if I recall. (Another problem with cash is that I don’t have the exact amounts in Quicken. Stupid cash. Debit card, I’ll be back. I love you.)
You can see pictures of a quiche I made and Anika’s reaction to it. We’ve also eaten pizza, which you really should watch the VLOG for if you haven’t already. We’ve had apple pancakes, spaghetti with meatsauce, and then chicken wings/chicken nuggets tonight.
Here’s my menu plan for the rest of the week.
Baking and Lunch Prep: Apple Muffins and Breads; Apple Sauce; Bread
Tuesday: Corn Chowder with Potatoes and Bacon
Thursday: Earth Fare (kids eat free. We might have to forego this if the temptation to spend money on groceries is too great.)
Friday: Pizza night
Saturday: Grits Casserole, Black Eyed Pea, Greens
What’s on YOUR menu for this week? How’s your monthly consumables budget going?
PS: Does it bother you that my pictures are so crappy or does it make me seem more “real” and endearing? (Here’s hoping.) Either way, sorry my pictures are so crappy.
