I did not intend to take a week off from blogging but you all know how life goes sometimes, right?
Anyway, I am still doing the pantry challenge. We've ate at home every meal except lunch last Saturday when we went to the big city. We also did a little grocery shopping while we there.
I've spent about $100 this month so far- a little more than I wanted but our normal grocery budget is $600 for the whole month and I hope to spend less than $200 this month.
What I bought-
produce at Sams like romaine, fresh spinach, cherry tomatoes, carrots
also mixed nuts and goldfish
at Sprouts- fresh pineapple and bell peppers, balsamic vinegar and bulk red pepper
at Aldi- dry milk, red onions,
At Walmart- diet soda (yep I fell off the wagon and that is OK)
glow in the dark Pull ups that don't glow nearly as well in real life as they do on the TV commercial
I bought more than this but I don't have my reciepts in front of me
This is a picture my son sent me, it is his favorite "go-to" meal to serve his family.
It is a baked potato, topped with Aldi roast beef in a can, topped with grated cheese- served on a real plate!
Bobby says the Aldi canned roast beef is really good, I've never tried it but do plan on buying a can or 2 and trying it out.
If you are doing this challenge, how is it going?
