I got off to an organized start this week, but then it all fell apart.
I spent $254.58 at BJ’s on Tuesday. Yes, that’s a lot, but I go relatively rarely. You can tell summer is coming as there are more drinks, more snacky foods, and less ingredients.
I did my main grocery store run on Thursday, spending $102.31 at Wegman’s. Oddly, since the Stop & Shop strike had just ended and those stores were still not stocked, stock levels were very low throughout the store. The only things I missed were my preferred salad and cheddar cheese, but there were lots of noticeable holes.
I also picked up my Farmer’s to You box for $43.66.
That was supposed to be the end of it, but I had to make two more tiny trips.
On Friday, I spent $5.38 at the farm stand for a bag of potatoes and a cucumber. And on Sunday, I spent $4.62 at Market Basket for sugar, tomatoes, and bananas. So inefficient.
Meals were catch as catch can this week (cue the chicken nuggets). We did have chicken pot pie one weeknight.
Friday we were out. Half the family went to Ninja Warrior night at the elementary school as part of which I had ordered them a pizza. The other half went to the ice cream social at preschool and had ice cream sundaes for dinner.
Saturday we had Picadillo con Espinacas to use up some older spinach. It used two pounds of the ground beef above. We used the entire 5 lb bag of potatoes for potato cubes and had some grated carrot on the side.
Sunday, myself and the younger ones had spaghetti & meatballs. The oldest and Dad went out with his team after their baseball game. Seven more weeks of spring to go!
