This week did not go as planned whatsoever. The good news though is that we only spent $33.65 at Aldi! I’m over my goal of $20/week that I talked about HERE, but $33 is a win in my book! Even better news is that I am not going to need to spend more than $5 on groceries this week. We just need some bread and milk, and we’ll be good to go.
On Sunday, I made a beef and rice taco recipe based off of one from DAILY DOSE OF PEPPER. Rather than baking it, I just made the beef and rice on the stovetop and combined. I had them over nachos while Mr. Daisy had it in a burrito, and Little Daisy just ate it with ketchup. We served some homemade apple sauce on the side.

I also made some banana blueberry muffins to use up the fruit before they went bad
Monday is ballet night, we all had something quick and different. Little Daisy and I had some sandwiches and fruit, while Mr. Daisy made a chicken patty…I think.
Tuesday is my Frugal Fail of that week that I talked about HERE. Convenience trumped frugality this day.
Wednesday we spent the evening at my family’s farm. It’s calving season so all hands are on deck. It was pretty amazing to watch Little Daisy experience seeing a freshly newborn calf for the first time. We ate dinner in the barn, a roast beef made by my stepmom. It might sound icky to some, but it’s life for us.
On Thursday, my in-laws invited us out to dinner at a new restaurant in town and it was DELICIOUS. It is a small, family owned place where all of the food is homemade each day. Nothing premade and reheated. We will definitely be eating there again!
I have some lunch meat to use up, so I’m thinking paninis tonight with homemade applesauce for dinner.
