Project: Food Budget {Week 51}

What a week.  Not what I imagined in many, many ways.  As I’ve discussed in other Food Budget posts, when my routine goes out the window, my meal plan is not far behind.  Groceries cost $126 (that was two trips), and we grabbed Wendy’s for $12 on Tuesday night when “The Bug” hit our house.  A day of cleaning up after and soothing a very sick little boy leaves no energy (or appetite) for cooking.  I’m glad to report that we seem to be on the mend.  Only our middle guy got the full-fledged virus.  The oldest seemed a little off, but nothing came of it.  Here’s hoping for a weekend with no more menu changes.

Monday — Dinner Out (pre-scheduled and budgeted in a different category)

Tuesday — Wendy’s (unexpected outing)

Wednesday — Chicken stir fry over rice

Thursday — Gnocchi that never was made last week because of a faculty picnic.  (I’m substituting red pepper for the zucchini.)

Friday — Homemade BBQ chicken pizza and salad

Saturday — Picnic food: Burgers on the grill, potato salad, deviled eggs, veggies and dip, and something sweet.

Sunday — Leftovers!
