Project: Food Budget–Week 24



There is not a lot to say this week, so I’ll keep it brief. Since we are moving, I didn’t do a big stock up – only bought 2Chili’s milk and a bunch of bananas for a total of $5.02. As of last Thursday, we still weren’t sure that we were moving – it has been a rollercoaster of epic proportions – but by the weekend we were confident things were going through, so I didn’t stock up (thankfully).

We have been eating some bizarre combinations to use up the perishables and freezer items. I’ll tell you, I have officially learned that pretty much any combination of veggies makes a decent stir fry, even frozen corn and peas! My favorite has been a generous amount of kale, a parsnip, some corn, black beans, and a sweet potato. Weird, right? It is good.

As of today, the house is entirely packed, so, we’ll have to eat out for lunch and dinner today and tomorrow. But then, oh, but then…I am so excited to get back to Bend and get back to a “normal” routine! I have not been able to keep up with my training plan for my half Ironman for the last few weeks while we’ve been in Seattle, so I am ready to get back in the kitchen and back on the swim/bike/run routine.

Have a great weekend all, and I’ll catch you on the flipside!
