What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries – Week 15-16 of 52

Sorry for the late updates! The last two weeks have been a blur but I found some great after Easter deals!

Week 15 I spent $76.44 and got some unusual ingredients because I wanted to try a new recipe I saw on Instagram and we wanted to cook on the grill for the first time this season so a lot of meat was purchased.

Here are some of the meals we ate in Week 15:

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos of the massive amount of grilled meat we ate all week. We grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, Italian sausages and chicken and ate it all week. Now that’s my kind of cooking!

The new recipe I tried was the cabbage rolls. It wasn’t a complete flop. We liked it but I will have to try it again sometime because the Napa cabbage I bought had leaves that were just too small to roll and I think I should blanche them a little longer, they were kind of chewy. But hey, they had great flavor!

For week 16, I took advantage of a lot of after Easter sales and there was a one day sale at our store so I really stocked up!

I spent $142.80. That’s a lot for me but it was worth it!

Here are some of the deals I got:

Whole boneless pork loin $21.41
Boneless chuck roast $17.32
2 bags raw shrimp 31/40 ct $5.99 ea.
3 Sugardale bacon $3.99 ea.
2 port tenderloin $5.60 and $6.19
Grape tomatoes $2.50
Spiral sliced ham, originally $40.66 on sale for $15.18!!

Here are a few of the things we ate in week 16:

Total spent on groceries week 15: $76.44

Total spent on groceries week 16: $142.80

Total for April: $310.52
Grand total for the year $1,554.30

Have a great week! -MM
