I have given us $500 as a grocery budget for the month of June because for us there are 5 paychecks. Last week I spent $148 on groceries because I had a mishap with Misfits and they sent me a load that I didn’t want (I should have read the fine print).
Last week we celebrated our 12th anniversary of wedded bliss so on Sunday we ate dinner out. Monday we went to a baseball game so hot dogs, cotton candy, peanuts, the whole sha-bang. Tuesday was taco Tuesday, Wednesday was another lazy night with frozen fish sticks, rice and glazed carrots, Thursday I made a veggie and chicken stir-fry, Friday I enjoyed a little league game with the hubs up in the booth so dinner was a soft pretzel with cheese, Saturday was a quick chicken and veggie alfredo over fettuccine.
I did make a quiche, red pepper potato salad and a pineapple cream pie which made me look like I at least attempted to think outside the box this week when it came to food.
The potato salad I make started with a recipe I talk about in this post https://marymargaretripley.com/2017/01/31/jalapeno-popper-potato-salad/ It is fantastic and the boys love it. I didn’t have the fresh jalapenos this time so I just used fresh red sweet peppers. Potatoes, bacon, cheddar cheese, peppers, cream cheese and mayo. What could be better?
The pineapple cream pie is a favorite for us on a hot summer day when I don’t want to turn the oven on. It’s only 5 ingredients if you buy the pie shell ready-made. https://marymargaretripley.com/2015/09/06/week-2-of-operation-pie-pineapple-cream/
Looking back on our week of food last week I guess I didn’t do that bad! We ate out a couple of time but those were special occasions for us.
Total spent for groceries so far in June $148
How are you all doing with the rising price of food? – MM

These prices are ugly! We are now to the point that we buy only what’s on sale, and milk, then work from the pantry and freezer.
It’s aweful 😣
