On this beautiful MLK day, we finished our grocery shopping after a good, hard workout at the gym! We came in just under the wire at $49. I was a little worried that we weren’t going to make it, but we managed! About $30 of the groceries were from Aldi with the other $19 being from Wally World.
Takeout confessions: Saturday night, I had an incredible hankering for Taco Bell, and Joey went and got dinner for us. It only ran us $8, so I don’t feel bad about that at all. I got a salad with no meat. They gave us cinnamon twists for free:). Today, we had lunch at Chipotle, which ran us $14.68. I wasn’t thrilled with the price, I’ll be honest. Qdoba is much more affordable and has more options, so I’m not seeing a lot of Chipotle in our future, but we’d been wanting to try it and we like to do special things like meals out when I have a day off.
Here’s our Menu Plan for this week:
- Monday: Corn Chowder
- Tuesday: Spicy Baked Potatoes
- Wednesday: Leftovers/Scrounge night
- Thursday: Mini Mexican Pizzas
- Friday: Possibly Takeout…if not, I’ll improvise something
- Saturday: Tofu “lo mein” with the rice noodles we bought
- Sunday: Spaghetti with marinara sauce + breadsticks + salad
When I planneed the takeout night, we hadn’t gotten any takeout at all in January, so I may decide that we should do something here rather than get takeout, but, since we were so far under budget on our Taco Bell takeout, I won’t be really upset with myself if we do.
And, for your viewing pleasure, I give you Shelli in a snuggie/Vellux sandwich:
