Project: Food Budget–Week 14Angela | January 5, 2012
We are headed back to Bend from Seattle this weekend, so, stocking up was not on my to-do list, and I mostly just picked up 2Chili’s staples. He gets cranky if he doesn’t get his Trader Joe’s Mini Wheats.
We have lots of fruits and veggies left over from last week, so I didn’t really need to pick up anything perishable.
This means we were also super-duper under budget, especially because I bought the grapes and bananas at Target, where they are practically free. I don’t really want to think about how Target can sell 1.5 lbs of grapes for $3.25 in the winter, but I do admit to picking up a bag. And, amazingly, they’re very good!
Total for the week: $25.94.
Menu for the Week:
This week is all about easy and fast – and using things up!
- Butternut Squash Soup with Rice (I just mix it all up – mmm, mmm good!)
- Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
- Black Bean Soup
- Veggie Burgers with Baked Potatoes
- Flatbread Pizzas with Roasted Veggies
