I knew I needed to pick up a few items. I stopped Friday after work and this is what I bought.
Sour cream 1.68
2 avocados .70
5 pounds of green grapes 5.03
Lays potato chips 2.50
2 liter of generic soda .84
Cheddar cheese 2.47
Total of 16.06 for a remaining balance of 4.94
I needed the chips and sour cream for the dip and chips to bring to my friend's party. The soda is a weakness of mine. I lucked out on getting the grapes for $1 a pound. I need to buy milk tomorrow as we will only have enough for breakfast.
Friday evening we had the crock pot chili I had made the day before. I made pancakes from scratch on Saturday morning. For lunch, the kids had tomato soup and fruit. I had a salad. I made vegetable beef soup from scratch on Saturday before we went to the party. I knew there would be food but I also knew it would be a long time. Thank goodness as we didn't eat until around 7:30 so we just had a snack at that point. We had a light breakfast of fruit this morning and an early lunch of boiled eggs and pasta salad with peas and tomatoes. We had nachos during the game and I made a pizza roll from scratch for dinner.
The one constant is that most meals are made from scratch. I usually cook that way but I also plan for hectic nights with easier meals.
I will go over tomorrow with buying the fruit for my work breakfast but I'm okay with that.
