It’s good to be home!
We walked in shortly after midnight this morning and pretty much collapsed after a long day of planes, trains and automobiles. Luckily our adventure was nothing like the movie. I’ll be sharing some of the pictures we took on our weekend adventure in a little bit, but for right now, here is what I purchased last week before we scadaddled out of town.
QFC – $22.19
Before we headed to London I loaded up on whole chickens at QFC. I roasted all the birds at once and made a few dishes for the boys to eat while we were out of town. I also picked them up a few cans of their favorite Campbell’s Chunky Soup and some cream cheese for the mini bagels I picked up a few weeks ago at the Oroweat bread outlet. I don’t know about you, but I freeze bread when ever there is a deal on it.
Albertsons – $4.20
It’s hard to make white bean chicken chili without white beans, so we picked up a few cans and some onions to whip up a batch in the crock pot so we wouldn’t have to make dinner after spending the day shoveling dirt for the new garden beds.
Amazon – $1.68
Mr. Produce Guy – FREE
Last week was a great week for free produce. We rarely get potatoes so it was nice to see those in the reclaimed produce boxes we get from Mr. Produce Guy.
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I am WAY over budget so far for this year.
But I’m still not freaking out. Even though I’m well in to Mid-May budget wise, I’m still delusional enough to think everything is going to work itself out in the end.
True, I’ve been buying less food this year, but I’m also spending more money on quality products. Clearly I expect our backyard garden to come into play, and my goal is that the garden will not only feed us all summer, but next fall and winter as well. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
Only time will tell.
How did YOU do with your grocery budget last week? Over? Under?
