Project: Food Budget–Week 19



Look out, world, 2Chili finally got an iPhone. This means he is up-to-date with the most current technology (more so than I am!), and, I may never see him again, as he discovered Twitter is much easier on the phone.

In other news of the week, we have our fingers crossed that we’re going to see sunshine this weekend! So far, it looks promising for both sunshine AND 70 degrees. Considering I’m writing this wearing a thick sweatshirt on June 2, 70 degrees is something about which to dream!

Here’s the budget damage this week:

I needed some household items like cat litter and cleaning supplies, which was the bulk of my Amazon Fresh order, as they have a $30 minimum for delivery.

Menu for the Week:

This week is the first week in my two week “taper” in prep for Boise Ironman, which means I should have more time on my hands to figure out what we’re eating. But, wouldn’t you know it, in addition to being less intense about my workouts, I’m being less intense about our menu! It’s a day-by-day experience!
