I’m still trying to get back on track after having Baby S last week. I had to wing it with the groceries and I really don’t have a menu planned. We are lucky to have friends wanting to drop off food, what a wonderful tradition! Plus, my in-laws will be here for several days to meet their newest grandson. I know we will be out at least one of those nights. It’s hard to guess what will be happening the other days. Let’s see how close we come to this…
Monday: dinner being dropped-off by a friend (I don’t know what we’re having but I don’t have to cook so who cares?)
Tuesday: bibimbap (or at least a variation of it)
Wednesday: pizza (toppings TBD)
Thursday: eating out
Saturday: dinner drop-off?
Our budget was $80, we spent…
Sprouts Farmers Market – $19.45
Trader Joe’s – $32.92
Bakery Outlet – $14.05
It’s nice to be under budget at only $66.42, but I’m not really sure what we bought with that. After getting home from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon it was up to the husband to do the weekly shopping. I didn’t even have a good list for him, poor guy. I knew we had friends dropping off some meals and I didn’t know how much cooking I would feel like doing anyway. My direction as he headed out the door to Trader Joe’s? “Just buy some of the things we would have bought before.” Before being before I started doing so much cooking from scratch. Apparently he’s been really missing the (tasty, but pre-packaged) Indian dinners we often had. We could be having them 4 or 5 nights this week. Good thing there’s some other food in the cupboard for variety. Truly though, what a guy. We could have been eating frozen pizza or take-out for the week. I can work with what I’ve got.
That’s it. Two boys are sleeping, I think I’ll join them.
