This month, we’re shopping our kitchen in order to use up what we have so we can save money and clear kitchen clutter.
Here we go with Day 29 of the Pantry Challenge!
Since today was Bryan’s bday, he got to choose the menu, with some alterations since we discussed them last night.
I made a run to the French bakery for baguette and croissant for Petit Dejeuner. Usually we get just butter croissant or pain au chocolat, but today I busted out to try their almond croissant. It was fairly amazing!
This is a great bakery that’s been here at least 12 years since that’s how long we’ve lived in this house. They have a frequent buyer card where you track nine purchases and get a 15% credit of the total. That worked out to be half the purchase, so breakfast with lots of leftover baguette was only $14.
Bryan chose Ty’s Burger House for his lunch. It’s one of his favorite places and a much better burger than what we had the other day at Hodad’s. On the way home he cashed in his free birthday Starbucks and let the kids have the ginormous mocha he got.
For dinner, he requested Poblano Chile Enchiladas. As luck would have it, I had the poblanos! I had bought some early in the month that looked beautiful at ALDI. They were 15 cents then and I kept forgetting to use them.
We did have to stop for sour cream, but the damage could have been much worse. (So far, we’re at $655 for the month.)
I made enchiladas and opened the last few cans of beans. I also made rice and a big salad. My daughter baked a chocolate bundt cake. So there we are.
