End of Month Food Totals

Groceries: $304.84

Eat Out: (even though I got lax at the end of the month because the grocery totals were soooo low): $99.55

Total food expenditures for the month: $404.39. Less than the $420 mandate.

AND.. we have  blizzard coming in tonight and tomorrow, and I did not go serious food shopping this weekend, as I did not want the totals to go up (just like someone really dealing w/ food stamps, waiting till the card gets reloaded to go shopping. So, the cupboard may REALLY be bare when I get to the store.

Menu:

Monday: spaghetti and meatballs, steamed green beans

Tuesday: Chicken and rice (frozen from a couple of weeks ago) and steamed green beans

Wednesday: kids w/ their dad. If blizzard prevents this, dinner is scrambled eggs and toast.

Thursday: Waffles, sausage, orange sunshine (fruit/tapioca dish)

Friday, Saturday, Sunday: kids w/ their dad. I have coupon  for cafeteria, will eat leftovers and whatever…  and hopefully grocery shop before they get back.
