Project: Food Budget–Week 5
October food budget = done, done, and done! And, we came in under budget. This leads me to believe we need to consider reducing the budget.
In round one of P:FB, I did a weekly budget of $75, or roughly $300/month. Clearly that is still an appropriate target for us. However, I’m going to wait one more month before deciding to lower it. I do like having a little buffer to buy a treat here and there!
This week, we came back to Seattle for a while, and I ended up having quite a bit of the prior week’s groceries to bring with us. My little hatchback was quite loaded between a dog, a cat, three bags of groceries and our luggage!
But, this meant we needed only four things at the market: organic milk, orange juice, bananas, and eggs. Total: $16.01 at Whole Foods.
I ended up having to buy a few things for TKT, but that was technically in November, so I am going to carry that over and report on it next week!
Menu for the Week:
- Baked potato soup
- Black bean croquettes with asparagus and 9-grain rice
- Teriyaki chickpea/veggie stir fry with brown rice
- Oaxaca tacos and black bean stew
