‘Twas a quiet Sunday at home. I ran to Walmart for my grocery pickup in the am, put things away, made sure dinner items were thawed, and then worked on computer stuff for awhile.
I had originally planned on Sunday Roast happening at lunchtime, but I got too caught up in work, so I made a yummy mac and cheese instead, and then we had our repeat Thanksgiving Dinner for dinner.
Groceries for the coming week:
I ended up making two shops this weekend.
Sprouts – Yesterday I went in with a small list of things needed before I picked up today’s bigger Walmart pickup. While there, I found Talenti on clearance of $1.79/pint. This is a deal one does not pass up.
Again, like the coffee, building up my store of goodies at prices I love so that we can have them when we want them.
I ended up spending $17 there.
Walmart – I loaded up on veggies, tortillas, and milk for the week as well as canned tomatoes since we were out. They were out of the flour and ricotta that I ordered so we will make do.
Total spent at Walmart was $68.
That brings our month-to-date total up to $367. Seeing as the latest food cost report from the USDA has us at $1101.06, I figure we’re still doing well.
Our meals for Day 17:
Breakfast – the usual
Lunch – Easy Mac & Cheese in the Instant Pot – I used some clearance sour cream that I had on hand, the last bit of cheddar from an open package and a chunk of gruyere I had in the drawer from before Christmas. I also added some chopped scallions. Super yummy!
My daughter had some tofurky chick’n from the last time we had this meal. I pulled some potatoes and some salad out before I added dairy. Her meal was very close to ours, but vegan.
I cheated a bit with the mashed potato casserole, using a container of Boursin left from Christmas instead of cream cheese and I added the rest of the sour cream from the clearance carton.
As I did two weeks ago, I set aside some stuffing for breakfast tomorrow because that was so good the first time!
