We are back from vacation, a trip to visit my oldest son and his wife in Tennessee. The week before that, the younger kids were with their dad for a week, so I have gotten off pretty light in the grocery department. And the pantry was bare when we got home last night. So today, I restocked and spent $138.60. Total grocery costs for the month so far: $237.51. Eat out costs so far $69.45. That does not include food eaten out on our trip, those are labeled vacation costs in the budget.
Organics: milk, eggs, coffee, rump roast.
Non-organic dairy: yogurt and cheese.
More non-organic dairy and meat: yogurt, string cheese, roast beef slices for sandwiches and one lone bacon wrapped fillet, which I ate for dinner tonight.
Menus for the week:
Thursday: Cheese ravioli and fresh fruit
Friday-Sunday: kids at their dad’s house
Monday: Stew made w/ organic roast, biscuits
Tuesday: Tilapia, steamed mixed vegetables
Thursday: Quiche, romaine salad, fresh fruit
Friday: Beef and egg noodles (made w/ remainder of organic roast) steamed green beans.
