Project: Food Budget (Week 25)

Hello, food readers!  I truly apologize for missing last week’s post.  We were traveling, kiddos were sick, and given the traveling, I kind of lost track of the details of our spending.  We did well though due to our generous hosts!

We’ve almost reached the half-way point on this food budget challenge.  How quickly it has gone.  I confess that I need to get more focused.  We haven’t been overspending, but I haven’t been as mindful of my spending and food choices as I was at the beginning of the challenge.

This week we spent $63 on my first grocery run.  I spent $15 on food at Target on another day, and we spent $9 at the church dinner last night.  Total: $87

Here’s the menu:

Monday: Honey Mustard Chicken with Rice (Confession: It came from a box.  We arrived home from our spring break trip on Sunday evening, and I totally gave into convenience food temptation on a quick Wal*Mart run.)

Tuesday: Mushroom Alfredo Pasta with Spinach Salad

Wednesday: {at church}

Thursday: Picnic Food!  Hot Dogs on the grill, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, and Sliced Cucumbers

Friday: Baked Fish with Rice and Broccoli

Saturday:  Uh oh…not sure yet

Sunday:  BBQ Chicken in the Crockpot with Macaroni & Cheese and Mixed Veggies
