What I Spent/What We Ate (2018.02.15)

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 3:18 pm

I’m late this week because we spent the weekend with Daniel’s brother and his family in the Kansas City area. We went up Friday morning (a little earlier than planned in order to beat a snowstorm), which meant I missed my usual ALDI trip. Which, given how much I spent on the front half of the week, was just fine as far as my budget is concerned :-)


What I Spent:

Saturday, February 9

Spice Merchant – $54.37

This was our coffee and tea for the month – we splurge because, oh my, this stuff is wonderful.


Tuesday, February 12

Sam’s Club – $45.63

Sam's Club pickup 2019.02.12

Walmart – $45.99

Walmart pickup 2019.02.12


That’s $145.99, which is $59.99 over this month’s budget of $86 per week. :-\

So…
Week 1 – $78.27 ($7.73 under)
Week 2 – $145.99 ($59.99 over)


What We Ate:

Saturday, February 9
Breakfast – Buttermilk pancake men (like Ma made in Little House in the Big Woods) with blueberries, and scrambled eggs (not pictured)

Supper – Thai Red Curry Chicken served over rice – I don’t remember what else I served with it

Sunday, February 10
Lunch – Leftovers because we were too busy Saturday for me to make “Ella’s taverns” in advance

Supper – “Ella’s Taverns” (aka sloppy joes) with lettuce salad and corn salad

And once I was done with my first burrito? I made a second plate as a salad, sans the tortilla

Wednesday, February 13
Lasagna, lettuce salad, and canned peaches (My fruit and veggie choices have been pretty uninspired this week!)

For Valentine’s Day, I made what is normally “Chicken and Broccoli Gravy over cornbread biscuits” a little differently.

We had it with banana pudding (special request from Daniel) and… more canned peaches.

We traveled up to the KC area to visit Daniel’s brother’s family – I made some cheese bread for with dinner (but my sister-in-law cooked the main meal.)
