What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries – Week 14 of 52

Week 14 was much better than last week! Meals wise we started off the week with ham and scalloped potatoes and asparagus for Sunday’s meal, Monday, I was by myself so I ate a salad with a side of couscous and sweet potatoes, Tuesday was ham with sweet potatoes and asparagus (can you see a pattern here?) Wednesday was homemade shake and bake pork chops with Kraft mac and cheese and home canned beans, Thursday was leftovers, Friday we went out after Good Friday service and Saturday I was so exhausted from baking all day (and Friday) that we ate out a second time. Seriously that was the only meal I ate on Saturday!

I did get some really great deals this past week. Asparagus was on sale for $1.77/ lb, I had an E-Coupon for a $1 off an already-on-sale jar of Hellmann’s Mayo so that only cost me $3.99. Whole pineapples were $2.99, Gold Medal flour 5lb bags were $2.50 ea. Folger’s coffee was $7.99 for the big container so I bought 2. I bought a semi-boneless ham for $9, Thomas’s English muffins were $2.64, Land ‘O Lakes butter were $3.50, and Perry’s Ice cream was $3.50.

It was a great week for sales!

Total spent on groceries week 14: $91.28

Total for April: $91.28
Grand total for the year $1,335.06

How was your Easter? Until next time! -MM
