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.
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.
