I am still working out kinks in the blog’s design, specifically with links showing up in a different text color. All CAPS denotes a link. Thanks 🙂
I apologize for the few days of radio silence. I am a scientist in the food, beverage, and nutritional supplement industry and attended a Food Industry Summit for my state.
I’m taking a page out of the book from Kristen over at THE FRUGAL GIRL because I love this installment of her blog so much. I really enjoy seeing what other people are eating while living on a budget and what they’re spending. Maybe you’re curious too?
Food spending in March is $0 so far 🙂
Remember the $155 GROCERY TRIP from when I mistakenly took Mr. Daisy and Little Daisy grocery shopping with me?
Well that was in February, so I’m counting it as February spending. 3 days into March and we are $0…woo hoo!
I don’t have photos of my meals, I need to remember that for next week!
Monday is ballet night so we have a quick, snack-y dinner. Little Daisy and I had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, apples and grapes, and yogurt to dip the fruit in. Mr. Daisy threw a chicken patty in the oven when we got home. After bath time, we had some delicious Halo Top ice cream.
Tuesday is family dinner at my grandpa’s. We alternate who cooks and bring it to my grandfather’s house for a lovely, weekly family dinner! This week, my mom brought some of my step-dad’s delicious goulash while I brought some french bread and cookies.
Wednesday was a Chicken Stroganoff from Cooking Light magazine. This is a new recipe, and you guys, it was awful. Edible, but awful. And bland. I am struggling to get through the leftovers because I refuse to throw them away. At the industry conference I attended this week, we learned that 1.8 billion tons of food is lost or wasted in the world. That is enough food for a 2000 calorie diet for every single person every single day (according to the representative from the NIFA branch of the USDA that was speaking). So, I am taking one for the team, dousing this stuff in hot sauce, and consuming it all.
Thursday was some homegrown T-bone steaks from my family farm, buttered noodles, roasted carrots and asparagus, and some toasted french bread. It was filling and delicious.
Friday is bowling night. Usually we throw something together quickly like grilled cheese or tuna sandwiches, but Mr. Daisy is still on a shortened work week due to the cold weather (four 10 hour days) and is off work today. He is planning to make some spaghetti with venison meatballs (venison that we harvested this year) and homemade spaghetti sauce from our garden last summer. What makes it even more delicious than it already is is that I don’t have to cook it 🙂
Although we had a crazy busy week with dance rehearsals, recitals, and broken vehicles; we…
