My Internet has been uncooperative the past two days. That and a bit of life kept me from posting until now. On Tuesday - day 8 - we did some rearranging of the outside freezer. This reaffirmed the fact that I do not need to buy more food. We are set and will be eating from what we have on hand for more than this month. We had a late breakfast of yogurt/granola for me and cereal for W. Lunch was barbecue stuffed potatoes to use up the barbecue left from Monday night.
Today was another late breakfast. I had waffles and W had cereal. He loves cereal and would eat it three times a day. We then had an early supper. I cooked terriyaki chicken, Parmesan pasta, and green beans.
Grocery Shopping....I spent all of my $20 this week. For my money I got a gallon of milk, two bags of M&Ms, powdered milk, cornstarch, baking powder, Simply Lemonade (my treat - on clearance), three packages of gum (to keep W from buying it at an overpriced convenience store), and almonds. I think I did well for the amount of money I had to spend.
For at least this month I am going to keep my grocery spending to a maximum of $20 per week with no eating out at all. It is tempting to stock up on items, but if we have an ample supply I am telling myself no.
