Because I’ve blown it a couple of times this month, we really reigned in at the grocery story, spending a whopping $12.67 at the grocery store on Monday. I was able to snag some more Panera bread after we got our groceries, so that will help us stretch our dollar this week.
Last night we had Pasta a la Pantry…i.e. we use two half-packages of different kinds of pasta, a can of diced tomatoes, basil from the garden, some frozen sausage (grateful for that!) and some cheese leftover from a previous week. I wouldn’t call it a recipe, but it filled us up!
Tonight we had vegetarian fried rice. My pantry is still nicely stocked with Costco sized bags of grains, so I cooked a huge pot of brown rice today. Add some eggs, carrots, celery, onion and frozen peas and soy sauce bummed off your friend and you’ve got dinner.
I went for a run tonight with friends and caught a whiff of grilling burgers…man, I am ready to get to the end of this month so we can stretch our grocery legs a bit!
