With 7 days to go and only $9.77 left in my grocery budget for the month, I won’t be able to get much set aside for my summer “fruit fund” like I had planned, but hey, every little bit helps, and there’s always next month, right? 😉
Our big purchase last week: beef cubes and 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. Talk about a 0 out of 10 on the excitement scale.
Here’s a show and tell of the food we ate last week:
Homemade Dutch oven cinnamon raisin bread. Have you tried this yet? Seriously, it’s the best thing ever toasted with a little butter on top. The perfect thing for a light breakfast. And, as an added bonus, it only costs about $0.50 to make.
Bacon and avocado sandwiches with leftover Saturday night beans. Perfection.
Mrs. C’s slow cooker pot roast. We just can’t get enough of it. Only this time we used a package of beef tips that we bought last summer and were sitting at the bottom of the freezer.
Pot roast. It’s the meal that just keeps on giving….
And giving. 🙂 I think the beef and potato pies were my favorite leftovers variation last week.
Newman’s Own frozen pizzas. Usually I like them, but this one with spinach and ricotta cheese was not a winner in my book. The HH liked it though.
Pickety bits… in any form is pretty much always a winning combination.
The game plan for this week? Use up as many freezer meals as possible. Ideally it would be nice to unplug/drain/clean out one of our little mini freezers in the garage by the end of the month and get it moved to the barn.
I know we have a lot of soup in the freezer, a pie, and some other pre-made odds and ends, and since it’s still sweater season here in Maine, I think the only thing I’ll need to actually cook this week is a loaf or two of bread to go with all those freezer meals.
And that’s just fine with me. 🙂
So how are YOU doing with your food budget so far this year? Staying under budget, or are you over all ready? Curious minds want to know.
Have a great week everyone,
