After only spending $86 last week on groceries I made up for it this week. I spent $159.02 from the store and $35.79 from Misfits market and $15 from the farmer up the street for eggs. I still need to get salmon from another store so well over $200 this week for groceries.
The most expensive things I bought were 6 dozen eggs for a total of $18, a gallon of vegetable oil at $10.99 and Folgers coffee and French vanilla creamer for $7.99 each. (We use a ton of creamer).
The gallon of oil and eggs were necessary because I have been getting a lot of cake orders, which is good so those are more or less a business expense and I was asked if I would be willing to cook two meals a week for a friend who had surgery last week and I said yes to that too so some of the expense is for that.
On the menu this week:
Dinners: Home made mac and cheese, salmon and wild rice, flatbread pizzas, beef stew, chicken stir-fry and fully loaded grilled burgers.
For breakfasts: English muffins (they were on sale BOGO), oatmeal with fruit, toast and eggs and chocolate chip, coconut, banana bread yum!
After spending so much this week I really can’t wait to get my garden started again so I can get these high priced shopping trips down in cost! What are you cooking this week? -MM
