A new baby in the house means I simplify, simplify, simplify – which for me means skipping any outings that require taking kids out of the car. So no ALDI and no library storytime. We pick up all our groceries instead.
Also, simplifying means very few pictures. Sorry folks!
What I Spent:
Sunday, March 24
Sam’s Club Pickup – $27.48
Walmart Pickup – $64.26
Walmart was out of the generic for my “unhealthy cereal” so I ended up with name-brand. Can you tell which one it is?
That’s $91.74, which is $23.26 under my budget of $115 per week. Hooray!
What We Ate:
Saturday, March 16
Breakfast – Daniel made us scrambled eggs and… pancakes? toast? I can’t remember
Supper – Beef Papriganoff over noodles with…some kind of fruit
I had peppers and mushrooms – so I mixed a recipe for beef stroganoff and one for chicken paprikash to make a hybrid – that we enjoyed quite a lot. I think I’m going to add it to my rotation on weeks where I’m buying mushrooms anyway.

Lunch – Arbys on our way to pick up groceries
Supper – Daniel and I had a foster/adoptive parent dinner at our church
The kids ate Crockpot BBQ meatballs over rice with peas
Monday, March 18
Chipped beef gravy over cornbread with broccoli and peaches
Tuesday, March 19
Pot Roast (Beef) with carrots and potatoes
I forgot to take a picture until after I’d eaten everything on my plate and was full. So this is what’s left on the platter after we’ve all eaten. Really attractive, I know.
Wednesday, March 20
Leftovers (since I was going crazy getting ready for our annual state licensure visit)
Thursday, March 21
Black beans and rice, lettuce salad, and cowboy caviar from our neighbor (who had extra)
This is an old photo of my recipe – this time I piled my beans and rice right on top of my lettuce, dumped a bunch of my neighbor’s homemade salsa on top and then spread the whole thing with ranch. Delicious!
Friday, March 22
We’ll have lasagna with a lettuce salad and some sort of canned fruit tonight.
