I’m getting this week’s Project Food Budget post in under the wire. Not too much to report, so let’s just get to it.
So far, spending seems to be back on track – or, close enough to our $150 budget. I did our food shopping at ALDI and spent $159.97. A few splurges included almond flour ($7.99) and two cartons of the higher-end ice cream. I also bought chicken breasts and pork cutlets, which I don’t typically buy, but since the kids included both on their list of dinner possibilities that they would consider eating ….
Sunday – The Girl and I treated ourselves to a nice dinner at Sienna on the Square before heading over to Heinz Field for the One Direction concert. I’ll have a review of both soon.
Monday – Not-Quite-Vegetarian Fried Rice. This was just a simple dish of rice and peas with soy sauce. I added pork to the kids’ meals and baked tofu to mine. We had this with vegetarian egg rolls.
Tuesday – Chicken and mashed potatoes. Vegetarian chicken strips for me and The Husband.
Wednesday – I’m working tonight, so The Husband and kids will be on their own. They’ll probably have pasta.
Thursday – Bean and cheese burritos.
Friday – Pizza Night
Saturday – not sure … depends if I remember to go to the farmer’s market this week.
