I feel so accomplished.
Pudding is stuffing his face with all the things lately so the budget has been expanded to allow for the copious amount of cheerios, lunch meat, peas and carrots, and the lactose free milk (sigh) it takes to stave off his hangry rages. We are now working with $175 a month.
No, that wasn't a typo. You ever get hangry? Hunger + Anger = Little Baby Meltdown complete with a headslam into the floor of the cub scout social hall. This child is going to be the death of me, I can feel it. Right now he's alternating between throwing a temper tantrum when I won't let him touch my phone while it's playing Blue's Clues and abject fury when touching the damned phone causes Yahoo Mail to pop up instead of his beloved Steve.
So anyway, yeah, groceries.
Thursday: Chili Mac
Friday: Fried fish, broccoli, au gratin potatoes (from the box because we're classy like that.)
Saturday: Broccoli cheddar braid and salad
Sunday: Swedish meatballs per peteybird request with egg noodles and roasted cauliflower
Sunday dessert: Peach crunch cake ala mode without the crunch as mr man "doesn't like nuts in his mouth" because he's 12
Monday: Beef tips but I'm putting them in the crock pot, mashed potatoes, and corn.
Tuesday: Grilled chicken salad
$141 + $20 produce box = under budget. Hooray for me!
