I made a grocery list

Aaaaaaaaand I know where it is.

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!


  1. Hi, I found your blog through the Dreanstress Challange. I'm looking for someone/a group to go to tea in costume (or out of costume) with at Davenport House on March 21 if I somehow can manage to fit it into my work training schedule. Do you happen to know anyone who might be going an would welcome a random west coast costumer?

    1. Oh oh! We'll go!! Send me an email at and we'll work it out. I don't know if I can turn out two in time but I know I can get my daughter's together by then and she wants to go. So if you don't mind us being accompanied by an overexcited 9 year old who will yammer about nothing, we're in!
