What We Ate/What I Spent (2020.09.05)

I’ve been super inconsistent posting these, but we started a new fiscal year in July and last year’s food budget was…not stellar. So I need to start paying attention to my spending a bit more closely – and there’s nothing like online accountability. :-)


What We Ate:

Sunday, August 30

Tuna Noodle skillet, peas, and carrots

Monday, August 31

Tuesday, September 1

Wednesday, September 2

I forgot to take a photo of this one so you’ll just have to imagine :-)

Thursday, September 3

West Virginia Soup with Cheese and Bread

West Virginia Soup, Whole Wheat bread, cheese slices

Friday, September 4

I made Beef Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots and pan gravy – but I didn’t eat it. Instead, Daniel and the children ate it while I had me-time in my room. Friday was just a little too much for me to handle. (Why? who knows.)

Saturday, September 5

Chicken and Dumplings, Mandarin Orange

At this point, the question is…how much did this cost us? Well, let’s take a look:

What I Spent:
